Restaurant of the Week: June 8- Far Gohn

Two years ago Steve Gohn opened Far Gohn Brewing Company with the idea to share his craft home brews with the people of Culpeper. In those two years, residents have sampled a total of 47 different beers and have helped double the production size of the local brewery. Gohn said that favorites include his Radlers and the Sleeping Elefant IPA. A “tavern brewery,” Far Gohn celebrates the German immigrant contribution to the American beer tradition but also embraces and brews a variety of styles from all over the world. Fan favorites include the Kolsch, Altbier and milk stout varieties. “We’re just thankful for everyone that has stopped by in the past two years,” Gohn said. The brewery participates in the Gnarly Hops and Hoptoberfest festivals and also host many fundraisers for local nonprofits. Food trucks are a regular sight in the parking lot and are popular with the regulars. Gohn said that in the future, they hope to open the second floor and have it available for rental space. He pointed to some of the new additions in the past two years, including the larger barrels and his canning equipment, as folks eagerly purchased “crowlers” for their trips back home. But if you’re looking to stop by and enjoy the pint, the hardwood bar is inviting and reminds visitors of a true neighborhood bar “where everyone knows your name.” “If you haven’t stopped by, please come visit us,” Gohn said.

Far Gohn is located at 301 S. East St., Culpeper and can be reached 540-321-4578.
