Calling all beer lovers! National Beer Day is on April 7th and there’s no better way to celebrate than heading to a local brewery for some delicious brews! Arcadia Run, located in Manassas, VA, is just minutes from some of the best breweries in the area. From local favorites to exciting newcomers, you’ll have no problem discovering something delicious on tap. Check out some of our favorite breweries in the area, plus a sneak peek at a few that will be opening soon!
Heritage opened its doors in 2013 and hasn’t looked back since. Owned and operated by military veterans, this isn’t your typical brewery. Their flagship beers, such as the Freedom Isn’t Free IPA or the Revolution American Amber Ale, pay homage to the USA with American-themed cans and names. Their rustic styled taproom lets you see the tanks your beer came from, and is great place to gather with friends. Heritage offers brewery tours on Saturday’s only, so get there early to get a ticket, which are a deal at $5. They also have a new brewpub and roastery opening soon in Clarendon!
Bad Wolf Brewing Company
Founded by local husband and wife team Jeremy and Sarah Meyers, Bad Wolf Brewing is on a mission to provide Manassas with delicious unfiltered and unpasteurized beer. With a rotating selection of craft beers at their TWO taprooms, Little BadWolf and Big BadWolf (extra points for puns), beer aficionados have their pick of IPA’s, porters, sours, and much more. BadWolf also offers multiple events every month, from paint and sip nights to fundraisers.
BadWolf Public House
BadWolf Brewing has been such a success that they decided to expand! BadWolf Public House just opened this spring in Old Town Manassas, and focuses on pairing their signature brews with locally sourced ingredients. They are still waiting for their new brew house to be installed and licensed, but in the meantime, diners are clamoring for the French onion soup, Reuben sandwich (proclaimed as the best around!) and the smoked mac and cheese. Stay tuned for their brewery opening!
Tin Cannon Brewing Co.
Located just 7 minutes down the road from Arcadia Run, Tin Cannon Brewing Co. (TCBC) is a local favorite. Their creative approach to brewing has led to the development of some of the most unique beers around. You can find a rotation of 10-12 beers on tap, such as their Unkel Dunkel Dunkelweizen, Vaughn’s Peanut Butter Porter, or Guardians of the Galaxy IPA. TCBC is closed for brewing Monday-Wednesday, which tells you exactly how serious they are about their beers! Come May, they’ll be opening their new 8100 sq. ft. brewery and production facility, meaning you’ll be able to find TCBC cans in stores throughout Northern Virginia.
