Dirt Farm Brewing – Beer with a View

Beer with a View! 8 JULY, 2016 Breweries The first two phrases you most commonly hear while driving with friends up the long Dirt Farm Brewing driveway are “how long is this driveway?” and “wow what a view!” This has been our experience on many trips with friends up to the brewery on the mountain. Proudly positioned out at the far Western edge of Loudoun County, Dirt Farm Brewing is located on a 100 acre farm on the outskirts of the historic town of Bluemont. Coming from Rte 7, take the Snickersville Turnpike through Bluemont, past Wild Hare Cider. Turn left on...

A Catoctin Creek Experience

Truly an excellent experience. From the time you enter Catoctin Creek to the time you walk out of the building you are immersed in prohibition era distilling culture and educated by passionate staff members and owners. This is a stop that cannot be missed! Founded by Scott and Becky Harris in 2009, the original facility sat next to an auto repair shop in an industrial complex. In 2012 the historic and somewhat dilapidated Case Building in downtown Purcellville became available. Finally after much renovation of the historic 1921 building and more than a few surprises and hiccups along the way,...

A Pleasant Impromptu Visit to Corcoran Brewing Co

If you live under a rock, are new to the area, and/or new to craft beer, wine, or cider in Loudoun perhaps then you can be forgiven for not having heard of Corcoran.  The Corcoran family began by opening Loundoun County’s 11th vineyard to the public in 2004 and the beer followed 7 years later. According to brewmaster Kevin Bills, Corcoran began brewing beer on a 1/2 barrel system in 2011 at Corcoran Vineyards. After success onsite in the vineyard “Barn” created a need for greater capacity, Corcoran looked for a new home in Purcellville. When I asked how they settled on...
