Outdoor Seating

It has taken a little help from the ABC and our wonderful neighbors, but we are opening new outdoor seating areas in FRONT of Old Bust Head! We’ll be starting with the opening of outdoor seating in the COURTYARD—the area in front of OBH down to the left. As we get the knack of outdoor service and more of our staff are able to return we’ll expand to the Plaza—and on bad weather days we’ll move out back to the Overhang.

Our Outdoor Seating policies:

▪️Open Monday-Thursday 3-8PM & Friday-Sunday 12-8pm. 
▪️Orders will be placed at our Order Stations and delivered to your table
▪️Seating is first come first serve, if there are no tables available we'll put you on a wait list 
▪️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.
​▪️Leashed dogs are welcome in our Outdoor Seating area (ask for a dog bowl & a treat!)
▪️If you leave your table, please wear a mask to be courteous to others 
▪️Bathrooms will be open and sanitized frequently, masks are required inside restrooms
▪️Our new growlers have arrived and are available for purchase and fills of OBH brews! Sorry, we are still unable to fill growlers from home at this time.
▪️CURBSIDE Pickup & Delivery will still be open 7 Days a week: M-Th 3-8pm & Fri-Sun 12-8pm

We are SO excited to see all of you again and can’t thank you enough for your support so far! 

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.
