It’s always great to read a well-written article that highlights the growing beer industry in Loudoun County. We couldn’t be more proud of how this county has grown and expanded in the beer, wine, cider, and distillery industry. Loudoun has truly become a mecca of amazing entrepreneurs doing amazing things. Janell Zurschmeide got to see and experience that this last week first hand with the Pink Boots event, women brewers coming together to celebrate the art of brewing.
The article does a great job of summing up several of the breweries, wineries, distilleries, and cideries in Loudoun. If yourself would like a roadmap of places to stop and visit take a look.

If you tried to cram everything Loudoun County offers into just one trip, you would either drive yourself to exhaustion or destroy your liver – or both.
The eastern part of the county embraces the urban Northern Virginia lifestyle, while the north and west present pastoral landscapes peppered with small towns, outdoor activities, and entrepreneurial businesses.
But the state’s fastest-growing county, in its fastest-growing region, has in a relatively short amount of time turned into something of a drinker’s Disneyland, with 25 breweries (more, if you wait a few months), 40 wineries, four cideries and distilleries, and one meadery.
So let us help you make the most out of your trip. To experience Loudoun’s best, put these top destinations on your itinerary.
Dirt Farm Brewing
A tribute to Loudoun’s rural roots and arguably the best brewery view in Virginia lies at Dirt Farm Brewing, on the slopes of the Blue Ridge in Bluemont. The brewery springs from family-owned Great Country Farms, a 400-acre working farm plus farm market, bakery and more. Year-round beers include malty and hoppy styles, but seasonal beers vary according to the year’s harvest, such as peaches, strawberries, and pumpkins. (Neighboring Bluemont Vineyard offers wine and matching gorgeous views.)
