Workhouse Brewfest takes place September 14th, with more than 30 Virginia craft breweries, artisan distilleries, and Virginia wineries participating in the event. Workhouse Brewfest spotlights craft brews, artisan spirits, and fine wine from Northern Virginia, throughout the Commonwealth, and from the mid-Atlantic region, including DC, Maryland, and West Virginia.
Workhouse Brewfest features live performances by some of the region’s most popular bands, unique food trucks, access to 12 air-conditioned art galleries and 65 artist studios, and some of the area’s most exciting beer, spirits, and wine.
The Brewfest provides an unforgettable experience for every kind of beer lover – from the uber knowledgeable beer geek to the casual drinker and those new to the world of craft beer. This year’s Fourth Annual Brewfest builds on the incredible success of the festival’s first event in 2016.
Brewfest also highlights how craft beer is big business in Virginia. Craft breweries sustain more than 10,000 full-time-equivalent (FTE) positions and produce nearly $1.4 billion in economic impact in the state, according to the Brewers Association. There are more than 200 licensed breweries in the state – including 10 in Fairfax County.
