The Taproom

Our taproom is located on the campus-like setting of the discretely situated Vint Hill army base in Fauquier County, Virginia.   We refurbished an abandoned 1950's warehouse on the property for our taproom—polishing the old concrete floors, exposing rough wood posts and beams, and adding industrial style windows, as well as a walnut bar made from trees on the Old Bust Head Road property.  The taproom and terraced beer garden overlook beautiful and historic slate-roofed barns that were part of the original farm buildings taken over and used by the military as a top secret listening post.  Our forty-eight taps accommodate the diverse and creative selection of craft beers we brew; and our rooftop solar, underground geothermal system, and leading edge C02 recapture system reflect our desire to make life not only rich, but sustainable.  

The Brewery

The Old Bust Head production area is equipped with a 30-barrel, four-vessel brewhouse—and with eight 60, three 90, and two 120-barrel fermentors, has the capacity to brew up to 15,000 barrels of beer a year.  A 7BBL brewhouse and fermentors allow us to brew limited release beers and hard seltzers just for the taproom. We also serve a variety of non-alcoholic options—we brew our own root beer and ginger ale, as well as cold brew coffee (with beans from local and socially-sustainable coffee roaster Cafe Kreyole), and we offer a rotating variety of kombucha brewed at the neighboring Mad Magic Kombucha. Local food trucks provide a changing menu of delicious food options. Customers are also welcome to bring their own picnic style munchies or carry in from one of the walkable cafés nearby.


Are dogs allowed? - Leashed dogs are welcome in any of our outdoor seating areas (just not inside the taproom!) Ask for a dog bowl & a treat! 
Are kids allowed? - Children are welcome to tag along (for a root beer float or two!) but we ask that they are accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times and must remain seated at your table.
Do you serve food?- Rotating food trucks are weekly (check out our food truck lineup on our Events Page!) or order from one of Vint Hill's cafes for delivery to your table. Outside food is always welcome!
