If you thought wine was our only thing, think again. Madison County Winery shared a home with Twisted Vine Brewery for years. Beers on tap at the tasting room are rotated monthly and/or seasonally. We also have a selection of bottled domestics available for sale. 

TWISTED VINE BREWERY is the brainchild of 3 guys who quite simply, just love to drink great beer. Given they like to drink it so much, making it themselves seemed the only logical next step. So, after many combined years of prolific home brewing under their belts, and basements and garages filled with coolers, kegs, and gadgets of all description, Twisted Vine decided to focus our passion on providing artisan beers to the local community. Twisted Vine Brewery used to operate out of Madison County Winery’s facilities and opened their own stand alone brewery in the Spring of 2016.

BIG RACK BREW HAUS is located in the rolling hills of Madison County and is owned and operated by Aaron Oviatt and Joe Taylor. They have been home brewing for five years and learning tricks of the trade from the guys at Twisted Vine Brewery​ ​before starting up the Brew Haus. The staff at Big Rack Brew Haus works hard and plays even harder, while brewing up some delicious ales for your enjoyment. The scenic drive to Madison County will provide a perfect setting for beer connoisseurs and craft beer lovers to enjoy what they have been brewing up for you. From a hoppy IPA to a dark roasted porter and a few smooth drinking lagers you should find something in their line to please your palate. 

Big Rack is in the beginning of what they plan on being a long and successful journey as they grow. In 2017, they opened their own Tasting Room in Madison County. Locally, you can find their brews through wholesale accounts in the area, and at the Madison County Winery taproom.
