Beltway Brewing is Closing at the End of January

With their ten year lease due up at the end of the month, it looks like Beltway Brewing will be closing at the end of January (2023). We got to visit them a year ago in January of 2022. We got to stop in during the day and watch part of the Bengals playoff game (which they won). Chatting with the bartender he told us he was also a Bengals fan.

Beltway Brewing opened in 2011 and moved into its current space, with a 30 barrel system, in January of 2013.

Press Release

Beltway Brewing gave out the following press release, announcing the upcoming closure:

It’s time to say goodbye.

When you decide to start a brewery, you always know that one day you’ll brew your last batch, but you never expect it to be the one you just brewed.

Unfortunately for Beltway Brewing, that time has come.

While I could regale you with Monday morning quarterbacking of all the things we should have or could have done differently over the past decade, the reality is that closing our doors is less the result of missed opportunities and more about the macroeconomic factors facing the brewing industry and the commercial real estate market here in Loudoun county.

I am incredibly proud and thankful to my team for their iron-willed fortitude and dedication in facing the many challenges all businesses faced over the past few years. Unfortunately, recent hurdles were greater than our ability to overcome them.

With that said, although our production has now ceased, we will keep our taproom open as long as we can to share what remains of our last brews with all of you.

Through at least January, our taproom will continue to be open during our regular hours.

We are scheduling a “Celebration of a Decade of Beltway Brewing” on Saturday, January 28th.

We want to invite every Beltway fan out to enjoy 2 final special releases of a barrel aged red sour and a barrel aged imperial stout, our 20+ beers on tap, and pick up a case of Beltway’s best brews before they are gone forever.

We look forward to seeing you all over the coming weeks and waxing nostalgic with you over a glass of your favorite brews.

Come thirsty, leave happy, and bring the memories with you from your friends at Beltway Brewing.

We are working on a massive project here at The Beer Thrillers. We are creating a map of all of the breweries across the United States. State by state we are adding maps of all of the different states with every brewery in each state. (We will eventually get to the US Territories, as well as the Canadian Provinces, and possibly more countries; as well as doing some fun maps like a map of all the breweries we’ve been to, and other fun maps.) You can find the brewery maps here:

We are also working on a project of creating printable and downloadable PDFs and resources to be able to check and keep track of all of the breweries you’ve been to. So stay tuned for that project once we are finished with the Brewery Maps of the US States.
