I often write about Blue 5, but there’s a good reason. They have the best beer AND the best music the close to me. Now, you may or may not agree with me on what the best beer or the best music is, but that’s ok. I’m writing this so I get to decide.¬† ūüôā


I was wondering if there they had a good band this weekend, so I looked on the old Internet and discovered that they had great blues bands for the next several weekends:

Biscuit Miller and the Mix 7/27

Zack Harman 8/2

Skinney Velvet 8/3

Little Ronnie and the Grand Dukes 8/4

Mac Arnold and the Plate Full o Blues 8/11

Then a little classic rock on 8/17 with Runaway Jones. Who doesn’t like a little classic rock?

Other music beer venues would be mentioned if they would just step up and provide this kind of entertainment and craft beer. How about it Blacksburg? Bring us the Blues and Brew!

What about the beer you ask? If you are a craft beer¬†aficionado¬†and I tell you that they have both Firestone Walker Union Jack IPA and Firestone Walker Double Jack IPA on tap right now, you would know what I mean. In fairness, they may run out tonight and be replaced before you get there, but let me assure you the replacements will be acceptable. They keep about 25 beers on tap all the time that are “regulars.” I would prefer that number to be somewhat lower and have new and unusual beers on most of their taps, but that might upset the less imaginative amongst us. Still¬†plenty¬†of good beer there.

Might see you there during one of the great bands coming up drinking one of these great beers.

Laissaz les bon temps rouler!
