News from VA Beer Trail

FROM VA Beer Trail


We had a whirlwind weekend that included many new Virginia brews. On Friday night I was in Woodbridge to see the new Hunger Games movie with my friend, Shiloh. For dinner we went to Bottle Stop, a cozy wine shop/bar/eatery in Occoquan. In addition to an extensive wine selection, they also have a decent craft beer list!

I started with the Lickinghole Creek Three Chopt Tripel. LC had a version of this with lavender at the Virginia Craft Brewers Fest this summer, and it was amazing. The original is good too; it’s full-bodied with a strong lemon presence and a little bit of hoppiness. Very drinkable.

Shiloh had the New Holland El Mole Ocho first. It’s described as a “Mexican spiced ale,” and has strong coffee, cocoa, and chili flavors. It’s a complex, but well-balanced, beer; the many flavors blend perfectly
