Small brewery with a small bar and several tables/chairs. Located in an industrial park, free but limited parking. Friendly bar service. 12 beers on draft with varying styles and ABV. 4 oz tasters range from $2.50-3.50 with 20% off 4 or more. Food is BYO, I assume they might occasionally have a food truck.

Solid place. Only one entry/exit to get to/from Terminal Road, so itís quite a pain leaving here around rush hour with everyone getting out of work. If youíre here, you mine as well check out Fair Winds 5 minutes away on the other side of Fairfax County Parkway.

First stop on my DC-Hampton tour. I waited for it to open at 4PM. Note that the entrance is in the back. Its an industrial space, with a very small bar and a coupe of tables with all the brewing equipment in the next room. I was the first person there when I walked in, but a few more tricklers came in as I enjoyed. The owner was manning the bar and was happy to talk at length about his beers, both in general and specific terms. They donít have flights per se, but all of their beers are available in tasters for $2.50-$3.50 each. They also have a couple of bombers for sale, about $12. Beers ranged from so so to good. Finally, they had fliers in the bar for the Lorton "beer tour" which consists of them and Fair Winds, and talked very positively about me visiting them before I left. I thought that was a nice touch.

Stopped by on a Saturday afternoon to accidentally discover it was their 1st Anniversary festival. They had a great deal for 5 large samplers, a rockiní little band and a food truck. The space is the new standard industrial. Bottom line, all the beers were good, and a couple were even well above average. (Brewery #681)

These guys do a great job on the Belgian styles especially. was here during their one year anniversary, so it was probably a little more festive than usual. Great funk music here. Almost all their beers were solid, and some very good. Would definitely go back. The decor is a little rustic though, without the party Iím not sure how interesting of a place it would be to visit - not much decoration. Just great beer in a warehouse in an industrial garage.

Forge recently opened and is putting out some really nice brews. We visited on a cold December weekend and were the first patrons. The owners and their dog were pleasant attendants and were definitely interested in talking beer. It is good to see a place bringing good beer to the southern Beltway area as the North/West has more coverage. I am interested to see how this place grows.

Tucked away in an industrial park off the I95 corridor just outside the beltway. Very raw space, really just a bar and a board with the beers. Not sure if they give tours, maybe down the line. 11 beers on tap while I was there, a good mix of styles and ABVs. 4oz taster glasses cost $2.50 to $3.50 a piece depending on the beer. Would love to taste for free, but hey, I get it. Kind of cool that they can serve 13oz pours for $5 or so. 32oz growlers for $10-$15 and 64oz growlers for $18-25. Perhaps a bit pricey there. Honestly, the staff there is spectacular. They are easy to chat with, engaging and can speak specifically about each beer. One slight issue was that the ABVs for each beer werenít listed on the board. Overall, very solid brewery. Up and comer.

This is a new place, brewery occupying one half of the premises and a cavernous tasting room in the other half. It only seemed cavernous because the stupid Virginia building code doesnít allow the place to have tables and chairs. Oh well. The beers were very solid, especially the session beers. Apparently gets sort of crowded on Fridays, less so the rest of the weekend. Brewer Matt is happy to discuss the beers. Definitely worth a stop.

Located right off of Interstate 95, this place hidden in an light industrial park but it looks like they have a bit of room to grow. Brew equipment is for small batches, but heard that a 10bbl system is on its way (sometime soon). Certainly worth a trip if youíre in the area to see the place in its infancy. Staff and brewer are friendly, polite, and talkative. They had all of their first brews available except one. Iíll re-rate when this place grows and I return.
