2013 Northern Virginia (NOVA) Brewfest is here! Live bands, food, beers in Leesburg VA Jun 22-23

Coming soon on June 22-23rd 2013, the 6th Annual Northern Virginia Summer BrewFest makes its way to Leesburg Virginia's Morven Park (Loudoun County).

The NOVA BrewFest elevates beer tastings to a whole new level and is ready to host serious brewers and beer connoisseurs. Beers with ÔÇťaromas of coriander and orange peel with a flavor of wheat", or "golden in color with an intense floral aroma and flavors of citrus, fruit, light malt with hints of powdered sugar and American hops" are just a few beer flavors to sample at this year's Brewfest.

The spotlight for this festival will be more than 60 microbrews from all over the country, including some right here in our own backyard, from Vintage 50 Brew Lounge (Leesburg), Mad Fox Brewing (Falls Church) and Lost Rhino Brewing Company (Ashburn).

If you are a fan of hand-crafted micro brews created in small batches with an interesting blend of flavors, joining other Virginia craft beer lovers and live music fans at the Northern VA Brewfest will be an absolutely perfect way to spend an early summer weekend in June!

It takes skill, patience and experience to produce craft beers, and local brewmasters take immense pride in their creations. Like the many small wineries that have developed in Northern Virginia (Loudoun County hosts 35 wineries, more than any other Virginia county!), so too are the number of small craft breweries quickly growing - right here in "DC's Beer Country".

Selecting and pairing foods with beer is becoming as popular as wine and food pairing. The primary sponsor of this event, Vintage 50 restaurant, will be showcasing their specialty brews created by their brewmaster, Bret Kimbrough. Bret's creations available for sampling include:

Tyrannosaurus Rye, a Canadian pale ale with caramel rye malts giving a toasty malt skeleton to this beast with a piney, citrus flavor and aroma coming from the American Warrior and Simcoe hops.

Doages Dunkel, a dark Bavarian lager, combines the deep complex flavor of a dark brew with the clean finish of a great lager.

Anonymous Dampf, a remarkably refreshing summertime brew, exudes a tropical fruit aroma, has a light body and a thirst quenching tartness that is perfectly refreshing on a hot day.

An entrance ticket to the Brewfest gives you a special commemorative beer tasting glass and 4 tickets for tasting your choice of craft brews. This festival is not only about the beer sampling, it's also a fantastic event for the entire family! There will be food, crafters, live music and even activities for the kids. If you can't make the NOVA Brewfest this summer, no worries, the Brewfest will be back this fall in Centreville at Bull Run Regional Park on Saturday and Sunday, October 20 & 21st.

Local, live bands include (Saturday) Dance Manifesto, Rew Smith, Jason Dean and The Fuzz, and (Sunday) Grand Theft Radio, Trey Schneider and Road Soda.
