Bear Chase Brewing Featured in Washington Post

Bear Chase was recently featured in the Washington Post’s “Going Out Guide”, an article describing nearby beaches, breweries and wildlife preserves to ease your summer wanderlust. From the article…

“We’ve all been to wineries where the views and the group-friendly setting are just as important (or much better) than what’s in the glass. Yet many of Northern Virginia’s best craft beers are made in not-so-scenic industrial parks. But that’s beginning to change. The two-year-old Bear Chase Brewing, in Bluemont, offers the mountaintop experience of a winery, with a terraced lawn and tasting room deck overlooking a million-dollar view of Loudoun Valley.”
