A fledgling micro-brewery in Falls Church, Virginia has already doubled the number of beers it makes available to the public — and that’s before its grand opening.
Area newcomer Audacious Aleworks (110 E. Fairfax Street) is still working out the kinks at its suburban taproom but continues to add more days to its schedule and more cold brews to its draft lines with each passing day. According to the Falls Church News-Press, co-founders Michael Frizzell and Brian Reinoehl signed the lease for the approximately 2,500-square-foot production facility last summer. The duo got the ball rolling at the newly opened location with under a half-dozen featured beers; this past weekend, that number had grown to 10.
The current offerings include: a trio of IPAs; a cream ale; a nut brown ale; a stout; a porter; and a blonde ale. By comparison, long-standing Falls Church brewery Mad Fox offers around a dozen beers of its own, including seasonally inspired brews, barrel-aged creations, and straight-from-the-cask selections.
Unlike Mad Fox, which has a dedicated kitchen, Audacious Aleworks currently allows customers to order in or bring their own food. Early adopters report that local food trucks also swing by.
Eater reached out to Frizzell and Reinoehl for an update about their plans for the official opening but has not heard back. We will update this story as new information becomes available.
Audacious Aleworks is currently scheduled to operate from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday, from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, and from noon to 6 p.m. on weekends.
