Local craft brewery, Old Bust Head, will be celebrating the Grand Opening of its taproom and brewhouse on August 15th-17th.
The Grand Opening marks the completion of renovations to the 1950’s post and beam warehouse portion of the brewery, which used to house secret military listening equipment. The warehouse is now home to a 200+ person taproom and beer garden. The bar itself is newly built from local walnut, but the taproom retains many details that recall its rich past.
Owner Julie Broaddus says, “We can't wait to show people what we've been doing here at Vint Hill. Our state-of-the-art production facility is up and running, brewing and bottling on a large scale amongst the aromas of barley and hops.”
She describes the new taproom as “pulling together the past and present in a way that we hope captures the spirit of Fauquier County.”
Old Bust Head has made a habit of incorporating Fauquier County anecdotes into the names of the brewing company’s many craft beers as well. Gold Cup, a new Russian Imperial Stout, will make its debut at the Grand Opening on Friday, August 15th.
“Gold Cup is truly an imperial stout; big, thick, and dark, with notes of coffee, chocolate, and alcohol heat. It checks in at 10% ABV and 60 IBU,” says brewmaster Charles Kling. “We are excited to have Gold Cup join our rapidly expanding family of handcrafted ales and lagers.”
Other Grand Opening events include live music from the OFFSTARR Band, christening the taproom stage and sound system on Saturday, August 16th. On Sunday, baby goats will return to the brewery to entertain families with their playful antics. There will be ongoing raffles for Old Bust Head gear all weekend.
Local food vendors Chef Beckles and the Bad to the Bone Smokehouse will be on hand throughout the event to serve food to accompany Old Bust Head’s craft brews.
Kling adds, “Many of our beers are brewed with a philosophy of balance and crisp, clean flavor making them enjoyable for the beer aficionado while at the same time being approachable for the beer novice."
Promising a weekend of entertainment and celebration, Broaddus says of the Grand Opening, “We hope everyone will come for our delicious craft beer and for an experience that is truly local and authentic.”
