A Good Beer, a Great Tour and a Flying Dog
Leesburg, VA puts you close to the Baltimore and Washington D.C. metropolitan areas, as well as the beautiful Northern Virginia countryside. This is a unique and fun place to live. Since you mentioned “unique” let’s talk about a tour of the Flying Dog Brewery.
George Stranahan, the founder of Flying Dog Brewery, is an astrophysicist with a Ph.D from Carnegie Mellon University and the founder of the Aspen Center for Physics. He is also a photographer, rancher, writer, philanthropist, and an educator who has founded three schools.
This is the dude who started the brewery. As you can imagine, the Flying Dog Beer he created is a unique concoction that locals have come to love with brews like Wildeman Farmhouse IPA and Doggie Style Classic Pale Ale.
Tours of this one-of-a-kind establishment last two hours and cost $5. The $5 covers samples and a commemorative glass. Tours take place on Thursday and Friday at 4 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. and then on Saturday at noon and 2:30 p.m.
It’s a 25-minute drive from Bellemeade Apartments, but more than worth the effort. This place is a blast.
