Vanish Farmwoods Brewery in Leesburg, Virginia, ranks No. 25 on the list of 50 fastest-growing craft brewers in 2017.
Vanish Farmwoods grew to 62 employees in the two years since it opened, and it says it is adding more production capacity and a barrel-aging facility to its farm.
“One of the things that is significant for us is that over 90 percent of our beer sales is consumed on-site in our farm tasting room instead of through distribution,” said Vanish Farmwoods owner Jonathan Staples.
Vanish Farmwoods is on a 61-acre farm and has two separate tap rooms, three indoor bars and one outdoor bar. It also has more than 30 taps and live music on weekends.
Big Lick Brewing Co. in Roanoke, Virginia, is No. 45.
Fair Winds Brewing Co. in Lorton, Virginia, is No. 47.
Sadly, I've never visited any of these breweries. Although I have enjoyed some beers from Fair Winds at local pubs. Looks like my "to do" list just got longer.
