On Valentine’s Day last year (a month before COVID-19 reared its ugly head), Kelly Walker, Alcohol Consultant for ABC Consulting, was taking advantage of 60-degree weather in February and visited one of our Northern Virginia Alcohol Consulting clients, with friends! Out-of-office, perfect days like these are a perk of the job that we just cannot deny ourselves: a gorgeous view and ice cold crafts! We’re glad that days like these are back – visiting client’s locations, enjoying the ambience of a great venue and sharing it with friends!
Kelly Walker enjoyed her day, sitting around a campfire with her dearest friends, trying great-tasting craft beer and enjoying the sunset. We are grateful that she grabbed these beautiful shots for your enjoyment. Hope they tempt you to check out Bear Chase Brewery. Below are Kelly’s crafty picks:
- Buttons the Bear – Oatmeal Stout
- Original Mr. Blond was a perfect light beer (no bitter taste)
- Pink Guava was amazing if you like a more tart taste
A near-perfect day in our book is a campfire, good friends, fabulous views, fresh air – and Great Tasting Beer!
This picture-perfect venue is nestled in the rolling, wooded hills west of Loudoun. The newly remodeled “Brew Barn” boasts a complete 10-barrel system on one side, and a smaller 3.5-barrel system on the other. The larger system will produce the perennial favorites of local craft beer enthusiasts (such as Mr. Blonde, High Pointe Helles, and Anarchy Ale), while the smaller system is used for experimenting with new recipes, producing limited release small batch brews, and teaching people about the art and science of beer making. They have NOW survived a pandemic and celebrated their 2-year anniversary. Join them for live music on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays! Food is available on premises, as well as take-out options (pizza and pretzels). Don’t forget, of course they have Growlers, Crowlers and select packaged beer to-go! They now offer wine, cider and their own line of craft seltzers.
