Old Bust Head Brewing Company is named for a rural crossroads in the rolling hills of Fauquier County, Virginia.  The locals who dubbed the corner ‘Bust Head’ enjoyed not only the potent libations brewed there, but also a little good humor. 

Some say the nickname came about when a neighbor fell off his horse after ‘overindulging’ at the corner shop one evening.  Others say the locals who drank there were partial to Saturday night fights, or that they just fell down and busted their heads on the rough old country road. 

One thing is certain, Bust Head was a place that brought folks together in good spirits and built community—and that’s what we hope to do here at Old Bust Head Brewing Company.

While we're serious about the art of crafting exceptional beer, and about our passion for the environment, we endeavor—like the folks who raised the glass at the first Bust Head—to keep things playfully in perspective and make life a bit more enjoyable for all of us.
