The Weather Outside Is Frightful, But Our Beers Are Refreshing And Delightful

Crisp! Refreshing! Those are the qualities we NEED (I mean, enjoy) in a beer when the DC area heats up like this. While it may be too warm this weekend to brew comfortably, we've got plenty of refreshing porch sippers to keep you cool. Here's a quick list of some of our more summery brews, but you can see the full list on our website under the  Beer Me! tab. 
  • Stoopid Wita witbier from Lagunitas Brewing Company
  • Fireboard Blonde Ale, a blonde ale from Seven Arrows Brewing (new from Waynesboro, VA)
  • Berry the Hatchet, a fruit beer from Coronado Brewing Company- really good, light & dry, not sticky sweet.
  • Extra Dry, a sake-style Saison from Stillwater Artisanal Ales
  • IPA Crush, a blood orange IPA & Evergreen IPA, a spruce IPA from Peak Organic Brewing Company. This is a newer packaging concept I hope many breweries follow. It's a mixed 6-pack!
  • GT (Gin & Tonic) Gose, a unique gose from Anderson Valley Brewing Company -- flavored with botanicals reminiscent of a classic G & T.
  • Who You Callin' Wussie, a pilsner from Stone Brewing
  • Quinannan Falls Lager, an enigma from Bell's Brewery. Lightly dry-hopped with Simcoe. More than a Pils, yet not an IPL. This is a don't miss!
  • Year of the Ox (2016), a honey white pepper tripel from our friends at Old Ox Brewery (VA)

Don't Miss Your Last Chance To Buy This Mill!


We put the Barley Crusher on sale for an unbelievable price just once per year. So if you are thinking about a mill, now is the time to buy! Until July 18, 2016 our Barley Crushers will be on sale for $35 off! 


Owning your own mill has several advantages: you don't have to wait in line to crush at the store, you can adjust the crush to your liking, and with very little effort you can clean it so your grain won't be influenced by what someone else has milled before you.

What's Brewing: Ju1y 1, 2016 Edition



Happy Fourth of July! 
Or, as we like to call it, Pyro Day! (Who doesn't like to blow stuff up?) The store will be open regular hours over the weekend so plan to come in for your holiday weekend must-haves. We've got tasty locally-made brats and pretzel rolls to fill your grill, a fun and funky beer selection to fill your fridge and, as usual, we have all your home beer and wine making supplies so you can fill your extra day off with your favorite hobby.

So to recap, the storefront in Falls Church will be open Saturday 10 am. to 6 pm., Sunday Noon to 4 pm. and will be closed on Monday, July 4. The web store will be open 24/7, as it always is.
