Tap into the LoCo Ale Trail and experience 21 breweries and 200+ beers this month as FeBREWary comes to Loudoun. With more breweries than any other county in Virginia, Loudoun offers an unparalleled beer scene where plant meets pint and visitors can get a distinct local taste at places like rural farm breweries growing ingredients on site to industrial-style tasting rooms located along the Dulles Corridor.

The diversity of Loudoun’s beer product and proximity to the nation’s capital make the LoCo Ale Trail a beer enthusiast’s must-do in Northern Virginia and to celebrate its success, Visit Loudoun has partnered with DC101 this month to offer both locals and visitors alike another way to create their own craft beer experience in Loudoun.

Celebrate Thirstdays with DC101 on-air personality Roche who will broadcast live February 9 at Barnhouse Brewery and February 23 at Belly Love Brewing Company from 3 -7 p.m. Enjoy giveaways during the broadcast, food, unique brews and a chance to meet with DC101 staff during both these events.

Continue to craft your perfect beer experience in Loudoun on February 25 at the LoCo Ale Trail FeBREWary Finale at Vanish Brewery. Sample craft beer from 16 Loudoun breweries, meet with brewmasters and DC101 staff, enjoy music and local food trucks as Loudoun celebrates the LoCo Ale Trail.

Each brewery will be pouring its version of this year’s LoCollaboration brew, a milk stout, as well as one of its own favorite brews. The breweries partnered to create the LoCollaboration beer, then added their own twist from chocolate and coconut to vanilla and strawberries. Attendees, who also receive a commemorative tasting glass, will vote for their top three favorite variations.

Tickets, which are $40 in advance and $45 at the door, are available for two timed sessions: noon-3 p.m. and 4-7 p.m.

The celebration of Loudoun craft beer will continue all year as Roche returns to Loudoun once a month through December for Thirstdays, broadcasting live from breweries along the LoCo Ale Trail. Listen to DC101 and follow @VisitLoudoun for giveaways and special promotions leading up to Thirstdays.
