About This Project
Enjoying a great-tasting beer is an American tradition. It’s good on the golf course, goes well with an afternoon on the dock and is the perfect complement to a leisurely dinner with friends. Beer is even better when you can boast it was made in your own community. Smith Mountain Lake became the recipient of its own microbrewery, Sunken City Brewing Company, in May. Owner and lake resident Jerome Parnell created Dam Lager, the brand’s original brew, in 2010. It was produced at a Roanoke brewery until moving back “home” – to the place that inspired its name.
