Drennen is a rural community located at the intersection of State Highways 39 and 129. It is an active coal mining area with people coming in daily to work in the mines or for businesses that support the mining industry.

The Drennen Dairy Bar opened in the early 1970s and was purchased in 2009 by Scott and April Underwood. “We always wanted to own a business in the food industry.” said Mrs. Underwood. “This is a good location for business with the intersection of two busy highways, and Summersville Lake nearby. We get a seasonal boost of business from tourists.” The dairy bar offers ice cream specialties, fountain drinks and grilled food entrees. They also provide catering and fundraising programs.
