Another crazy ass hard to find industrial location. Arrived maybe 30 minutes before close but they still served me a (really expensive) flight of four. Not that busy in th bar area at least; did not go back to the restaurant. Beers were pretty unimpressive. They had some bottled selections available to go, including some barrel aged and sour stuff, but after what I tried when I was there I decided not to risk it.
Industrial park. I know why breweries locate in these places, but I always wish for better environs for VA breweries. Inside was decent enough. They have numerous beers on tap, but due to our arrival only got to try one. Will return again to get a more full experience.
Small brewpub in an office/industrial park 5 minutes from Route 28 or the toll road. Could use some signage for first-time visitors, had a little trouble locating the place. Got there minutes after last call and the bartender begrudgingly let us order a 5-9 oz beer each. Didn’t try the food. Wouldn’t go out of my way but an okay stop if you’re in Ashburn or on a local brewery tour.
A very big place, with three huge rooms full of seating. Many beers on tap. There was also a cask. They offer a full food menu as well, I just wasn’t hungry at the time. A great spot well worth checking out.
Great to see a new brewery in the area. Favio showed us around, was happy to chat about brewing, his future plans, etc. A restaurant will be added at some point, he’ll brew seasonals, probably starting with an Oktoberfest. Very friendly staff. Place is very industial and still under construction, but it’s definitely worth a visit. Or maybe more than one visit! 3-10-9-n/a-8-15 76.
So, this place has come a long way since my first visit on 6/25/2011. Tasting room has expanded to the room next door with tons of picnic table style seating. Two bars, one in each room. Individual tasters, flights or full pints available. Some food on offer, including the biggest pretzels I’ve seen with actual hot mustard. One cask of a variant of one of their beers, and a handful of bottles for sale to drink in or take away. Live music on the Saturday night I visited, a very solid Blues band. Very convenient stop on your way to or from Dulles. A great time.
They have expanded their tap room from what I hear. Very large with lots of long tables to sit people at. A great atmosphere where you can get to know your neighbor over a pint. The samplers are reasonable priced and you can create your own. Lots to choose from with an occasional brewery exclusive and always a cask condition available as well. They had a selection of four sour beers I wanted to try but are bottle sales only. Food is interesting. They have live music weekly along with beer dinners as well which is cool. Good place to site and have a pint with friends.
Nice, busy place when I went in here on a Sunday - it was bustling. Their beers are a little underrated I found, and most are easy to drink and reasonably well done. Funky kind of place. They had a few 500 ml bottles for sale but I declined to buy any for the $12 price tag - seems ridiculous for a local beer and while the tap prices are mostly ok this brings my value rating down. Location in the industrial dregs of Ashburn and not far from Old Ox.
November 2013. For a Saturday night dinner, the place was well occupied, but easy enough to find seating at the ample, party-sized tables. There was live music. I like their style here -- open tabs they can get to on any register, a hearty lineup of pretty darn good brews and some entertaining food. This place kinda reminds me of the old Old Dominion place across town. The staff was a blend of friendly and fun and dumb and stoic. All the same, I really enjoyed this place and will definitely go back. Brewery #637.
