Forge Brew Works Celebrates Four Year Anniversary
Lorton, VA, October 3, 2017: Forge Brew Works, the first craft brewery in Fairfax County, Virginia is
celebrating their four year anniversary on October 21, 2017. This year has seen a lot of activity and
growth for the brewery.
Forge started in 2013 with limited beers available in the taproom and 1 local bar. Now, the taproom taps
are always full of perennial favorites such as Blonde Conviction, Forged Gold, and Farmhouse Ale, and
specialty and seasonal brews like Elder Gods, Kelsenator, and Day Walker. In the past year alone,
production has quadrupled with beers featured in establishments such as The Light Horse, Fiona’s Irish
Pub, Springfield Movie Theater, many bars in Old Town Alexandria and other locations in Northern
Virginia.
What began as a family run operation has grown to employ 10 people who work to make, manage,
market, and serve their popular brews to their loyal clients. The team can be found in the brewery
working all hours to keep up with demand, in the taproom Wednesdays through Sundays, at local
festivals throughout the area.
The past year alone has brought many changes to Forge. A new 10bbl brew house with 20bbl
fermenting system was installed – and it has a fermenter reserved specifically for lagers, allowing Forge
to branch out into new and exciting styles of beers. A new bottling system has given customers new
opportunities to buy bottled Forge favorites to enjoy and share any time they please. There have also
been many fine upgrades to the taproom – including three TVs for all your sport watching needs (or
films on our movie nights). The rest, you’ll just have to come in to see.
While many things have changed, some things never will. Each recipe is still created by owner and head
brewer, Matt Rose and every batch is hand-crafted in our brewery in Lorton, Virginia.
To celebrate their fourth consecutive year of growth, Forge Brew Works is throwing a party. We would
not be where we are without our customers and local beer lovers, so on October 21th from 12pm
through 10pm the brewery will be celebrating with live music, delicious food to feed hungry revelers,
games for all, kids’ activities, and, of course, beer – some of which will be served out of Forge’s restored
vintage 1953 GMC Beer Truck. Forge friends of all ages are welcome. The party will take place at the
brewery and tasting room at 8532 Terminal Road, Suite, Suite L, Lorton, VA 22079.
Forge Brew Works is a craft brewery in Lorton, VA. It is a labor of love for owner and head brewer Matt
Rose. Forge is mainly focused on Belgian beers in hand crafted batches. Forge beers can be found in
restaurants and bars across Northern Virginia. Seasonal runs and specialty brews can be enjoyed in the
onsite taproom at 8532 Terminal Rd, Suite L, Lorton, VA (just off I-95) in flights, pints, or take home
growlers and bottles. Contact Shanna Carvell at shanna@forgebrewworks.com for more information.
