After several visits back, I decided it was time for an update. The ambiance really hasn’t changed despite put tables in. The downside is there isn’t any table service. So you wait in line at the small bar area, then take your beer and sit down. Long lines can form and there isn’t much of a rhyme or reason to how they serve people. Staff range from surly to unattentive to nice. There also seem to be a lot of staff just standing around. Pot luck there. Food is mediocre and overpriced. Unfortunately there isn’t any mind blowing beer either. Most of it is average, some below average. I want to like this place because it’s nearby, but it’s just not worth stopping by on a repeated basis unless you want to tick off unrated brews.
A nice airy taproom, in a non descript commercial/Light industrial park amidst The data centers of Loudoun County. They have food, which I didn’t try -an inconvenience since it meant I couldn’t eat the snack I had brought. Lots of beers, but none outstanding. No bike parking, but they let me bring mine inside. Nasty ride from the trail. They have brewers flights, or you can customize your own. Mellow vibe on a Saturday afternoon. Someone gave me birthday cake, beat that.
The brewpub was easily found by the Garmin. The location is in an industrial park. The beers were good. They even have an experimental beer to sample. The food was normal pub chow but good. I like their pilsner. It is worth a try. Katie provided excellent service. It is also place to relax and enjoy the beer and play cards.
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.
