Located out in Waterford, the scenery is nice driving out. The "brewery" is located in a shed where there is a small bar for tastings. Tastings are $7 for six sub par brews, a glass, and stale snacks (peanuts and pretzel sticks). I want to like this place since itís right in my backyard, but itís not very good and I canít recommend coming here. The beer would be the only attraction but I would call it mid grade homebrew at best. Perhaps with a little more time things will improve.

This is a small barn, or maybe a large shed, behind a house in a rural residential area. Large bar on the left, brewery is behind a wall on the right. They had a dozen beers on, all very solid. BBQ is seasonal, too cold to fire up the grill on the day we visited. Still very much worth the trip.

Went on a trip with friends to hit up various Loudoun county locations. We werenít originally going to stop by here, instead opting to hit their beers at the Leesburg Brewing Company location. Well, we timed our trip to Catoctin Creek Distillery poorly, and had 90 minutes to waste before the next tour. We hoped in the car and drove on up to Corcoran.

This is pretty much in the middle of nowhere. Lots of cars greeted us there, plenty of people eating some BBQ as well as drinking some beers out on the patio. Busy inside the building too, but we found some room to sit. $7 tasting of six beers or a $13 tasting for (this time) all 11 taps. Staff was nice and selections were better than the first time I had their brews in 2012.

The wife and I took a trip from DC to Virginia "Wine Country". This place was on our list to hit since it is attached to a vineyard and we could kill two birds with one stone. A quick note on the facility, when you come down the dusty dirt road and enter the farm the brewery is in the shed on the left, the wine tasting room in the house on the far right. We hit the wine first which was very solid by Virginia standard. The brewery was packed, plenty of seating outside though and no issues with parking. They have a pit BBQ set up to the side with decent prices. We didnít eat, but the aromas had us salivating. Inside the brewery offeres a $7 tasting of six beers or a $13 tasting for all 10 taps. My wife and I split the 10 tap tasting. A good mix of beers. Some total flops (Kolsch, Lager) but some nice offerings too (Irish Stout, West Coast IPA). Nothing overly interesting, but decent enough. I doubt this is the next Tired Hands, but its worth a stop if youíre visiting this neck of the woods.

Located outside the ridiculously charming town of Waterford down a long gravel road. The brewery is located separately from the winery. A small shed-like building but they are currently expanding due to the massive crowds. Honestly, I donít know how all those people in there fit in the vehicles outside. Probably about 50 people but with the small place it gets packed. The staff were working hard but still found time to be friendly. $7 gets you a sample of all of six beers (2-3 ounces each) and you keep the class which is actually a pretty nice tasting glass. I can see it making an appearance at future tastings. The beers ranged from average to good. The IPA was particularly good. A bit of an amateurish tinge to some of them, but I was overall pleased with the range. Pretzels and peanuts are out to munch on. Nice little brewery.
