Young brewmaster set to open business – Loudoun Times
Breweries keep popping up across the greater BeltwayLand and its exurbs. The latest is Crooked Run Brewing Co. in Leesburg by 25 year-old Jake Endres.
Here is more from theCrooked Run About page:
A nano-brewery is a very small brewery, even smaller than a micro. The idea behind Crooked Run is to revive the concept of a farmhouse brewery. I’ve been a homebrewer for the last five years and have won several medals for my beers. In addition to brewing, I grow my own hops, barley, and fruit which I use to make unique ales brewed with traditional methods and ingredients.
Crooked Run is on Kickstarter, trying to raise $10,000 by March 7. He had reached $6,800 as of Feb. 21.
Here are some details about the proposed tasting room:
The location of the brewery and tasting room will be at 205 Harrison Street, Leesburg, VA 20175. The location is in Market Station, a hub of great restaurants and drinking establishments located in historic downtown Leesburg. The brewery and tasting room will feature seating for 26, a cozy fireplace, heated outdoor seating for 12, and a hops garden.
Looks like a lot of fun and great addition to Leesburg which needs something besides antique shops in the center of town, right?
Loudoun has everything these days — wineries, breweries and even distilleries. Maybe the next start-up needs to be a transportation service that gets visitors back and forth to these places safely. Hmmmm….
