Covid19 Statement

Hello Old Bust Head friends,

We have made the difficult decision to close our Taproom to all but curbside pickup until further notice based on new recommendations by both our Virginia State and the Federal government.

Although we won’t be opening the Taproom for St. Pats, we hope you will come by TODAY to try out our curbside pickup of kegs, cases, 6-packs, crowlers, and pre-filled growlers of your favorite Old Bust Head beers. We’ll be here with St. Patty’s day spirit from 3-7pm today and will toss in a gold chocolate coin for luck with every order.

Going forward we will be offering curbside pick up during our regular hours minus one….so 3-7 on Mondays, Wednesdays, & Thursdays and 12-7 Friday, Saturday, & Sunday. Simply pull up and call 540-347-4777 and our team will meet you at the curb to take/deliver your order!

We’ll try our best to make your curbside pick up a little festive, and something to look forward to during the days ahead as we all try to relieve a little cabin fever.

All the best from the team at Old Bust Head

The Brewery

Old Bust Head Brewing Company is an independent, solar-powered microbrewery in beautiful Fauquier County, VA west of DC. Our experience brewing traditional ales & lagers has helped us win awards in styles classic and creative. With beautiful views of slate roofed barns and refurbished campus-like brick buildings, Old Bust Head is part of a unique farm called ‘Vint Hill’ that for 50 years operated as a top secret military listening post. 

Equipped with a 30-barrel, four vessel brewhouse, eight 60-barrel fermenters, and two 120-barrel fermenters Old Bust Head has the capacity to brew up to 10,000 barrels of beer a year.  We’ve got plenty of space for additional fermenters and will be able to expand that capacity when you are ready for more brew! 

The Taproom

Familiar faces behind the bar share their love of craft in our 1950’s post & beam taproom while covered outdoor seating between our taproom and production area provides a welcoming environment for dogs and all-weather access to a rotating variety of food trucks. Dogs (and their humans) are also welcome on the front beer garden.  

Our 30' walnut bar and 48 taps give us room to put up a wide variety of ales and lagers as well as a selection of hard seltzers.  We also have a variety of non-alcoholic options—Magic Kombucha (brewed three doors down), Cold Brew (also from Vint Hill), and our own non-alcoholic root beer. We partner with local food trucks every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday who provide changing menus of delicious food options. You are also welcome you to bring your own picnic style munchies or carry in from one of the walkable cafés nearby.


Beer to go
Visit the taproom and you will also be able to buy our beer directly from the brewery by the 6-pack, crowler, growler, or keg.  Bring in your own growler and we'll fill it on our counter-pressure growler filler.
