A Third Brewery For Fredericksburg

I found out about this endeavor just last night through a mutual friend. Adventure Brewing is the dream of three local home brewers. I exchanged messages with my friend, who promised to make introductions soon. Coincidentally, this morning, the Fredericksburg Business Insider carried news on the brewery plans.

Three Stafford residents hope to open a microbrewery in the county by the end of the year. 
Tim Bornholtz, John Viarella and Stan Johnson, each of whom has been home-brewing for at least 10 years, are working on plans for Adventure Brewing Co. 

According to the posts on the brewery's Facebook page, the trio has met with Stafford County officials with the goal of changing some zoning laws to accommodate the operation. Another interesting tidbit picked up on Facebook is that Adventure Brewing Company was registered in the Commonwealth of Virginia on March 17, St. Patrick's Day! Be sure to "Like" the Adventure Brewing Facebook page to keep up with the latest news.

I wish Tim, John, and Stan much success! Hopefully I'll get the chance to report on the product soon.

See "Microbrewery planned in Stafford County" for the complete Business Insider article.
