My husband and I are making our way through all of the breweries in Northern Va. This brewery has it's own unique beer--more sour and light flavors. The Double IPA is heavier and will knock your socks off (in a good way). The loaded tater tots is a good pairing. But, the best part about this brewery are the employees.... More

A friendly neighborhood tavern. A comfortable atmosphere. Food is good. A little improvement on the beer selection would be nice. Family oriented . A nice little place to get lunch or dinner, basically bar foods, but done well.

Stopped by right at opening on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. There was one "regular" already at the bar and 2 folks working. I tried two of their "experimental" beers, Vanilla Bourbon Porter and Lumberjack, and they were both very good. I also tried on of their regular selections, Red Tails, and it was very good as well. The folks working... More

Mad Horse Brew Pub is a gem in the small town of Lovettsville; The beer made on premises was great and the pretzels were better than the ones I had in Germany while I was stationed there. The place is quaint and rustic and a perfect stop in Northern Virginia's western country.

We first went to Mad Horse over two years ago. While we enjoyed the beer, the selection was quite limited. We had several mixed experiences, so we stopped going. When we learned they had new ownership we decided to try again. We were very glad we did! The beer selection is much better now, usually 5-6 on tap. The food... More

Medium sized pub in what was the former funeral home! They brew their own beer, IPA's and collaborates with other area brewers to come up with other novel brews. Food is simple and good. Known for their home made pulled pork which is the topping on their infamous hearty Nachos. Other hearty apps include onion rings, chicken quesadilla, chicken sandwiches,... More

New to the area, my wife and I decided to try the place out after dinner. Ample parking. Quite busy when we arrived -- 20-30 people. Very clean and upscale bathroom which you don't expect in a bar. Lots of beer choices. A musician was playing periodically throughout the night. Artwork from a local artist on the wall. Military pictures... More

The beer is OK and the snacks are available. It is like an old saloon inside with few amenities. It is a good place for a poker game if they permitted such thing.

Cute little place packed with locals. The ESB was one of the best beers I've had anywhere recently. The pulled pork and mac n' cheese was good and we enjoyed the huge pretzel. As others have noted, the service could be improved. You need to order at the bar, which is fine, but staff are not overly attentive. Our table... More

We stopped for a last minute bite. The menu was very limited, so we decided to share a chicken wrap with fries. I mean, how can you make a bad wrap?? Well, it wasn’t bad, and we did get to choose the dressing (which probably came out of a salad dressing bottle). The chicken itself was ok, as was the... More
