Blackwater Brewing Company is honored to have been one of 100 or so breweries in the U.S. approached by the American Brewers Association to brew a special Porter for the #BiggestSmallBeerEver project associated with American Craft Beer Week, May 16-22.

Paul Ogg, a professor at the Colorado School of Mines and brewer at Declaration Brewing, was diagnosed with peripheral T-cell lymphoma about a year ago, according to Mike Blandford, the president of Declaration Brewing Company. Blandford decided to launch a mass collaboration in honor of Ogg and his family. He ultimately teamed up with Andy Sparhawk of the Brewer’s Association, who had a similar idea. They decided to have Ogg write the recipe for the beer, and Blandford and Sparhawk would recruit brewers. Blandford says he’s recruited more than 105 breweries in all 50 states to brew the beer in time for American Craft Beer Week.

Our version of Ogg’s Porter, made with local Maple Syrup, will be available starting the evening of Thursday, May 19, only on-tap and for growler fills at Blackwater Brewing Company.

We will be open at 5pm that evening for a release party.

Nationwide Toast to Paul Ogg and American Craft Brewing will occur at 8pm.


$1 from the sale of each pint will be donated to the American Cancer Society.

2015 Brew Skies Weekend at Blackwater Brewing Company

Chachkie 082015

We knew it was bound to happen eventually!

Due to overwhelming support from our guests and loyal supporters, our brewery has reached terminal velocity.

What’s that mean?  It means that folks have caught on to who we are and what we’re about, and are embracing, in growing numbers, our high quality, Artisan European-style Ales and Lagers.

In order to keep up with this growing demand, we have reached a near-capacity level of production with our current brewery operation.  In the near-term, we will continue to be able to service our loyal retailers, as well as to continue to keep the taps flowing in our Mountain Town Pub in Davis; all of our off-site and on-site customers, including the large number of scheduled group events at BWBC through October, will see no interruption in supply of our beer.

Unfortunately, we have little beer available to bring out to festivals this summer… And subsequently, we will not be participating in this weekend’s Brew Skies Festival in Canaan Valley.

However, we will be open normal business hours:

Fri 5-10pm, Sat 12noon-10pm and Sun 1-9pm

If you’re in the area this weekend, stop in and enjoy one of

4 mainstay BWBC beers

Canaan Valley Kolsch, 3200 Altbier, Laurel Run English Pale Ale, Angus Macker Hardy County Sweet Oatmeal Stout

as well as

2 Guest Taps

CBC’s Citra Obsession and Finch’s Sobeck and Set Black IPA

Get your own growler filled with BWBC beer, or get one of our new 64oz (2L) logo growlers to go!

New BWBC ball caps, stickers and can-style logo glasses are available, too!

We assumed operations in 2012 with the commitment to brew consistent, high-quality beer.  We will not compromise that standard in order to meet market demand, as we have witnessed all too often in the growing craft beer industry.

Plans are well-underway to expand our brewing operation, to provide a consistent long-term supply of the premium BWBC beers you’ve come to expect, throughout West Virginia and beyond!  Keep an eye on us in the upcoming months.  Exciting things are happening!!!

See you soon,

Lincoln and Amanda Wilkins, Owners/Proprietors

And the Friendly Staff of Blackwater Brewing Company
