Caboose Brewing Announces Plans for Merrifield Location

The Falls Church area is truly becoming a beer lover’s paradise.

There’s the award-winning Mad Fox Brewing Company in the heart of the Little City. Two miles to the east is Dogfish Head Alehouse and on the opposite side, breweries Gordon Biersch and Sweetwater Tavern are less than five miles away. Not to mention, the stellar draft and bottle lineup at Spacebar, Dogwood Tavern and others. And soon, there will be yet another reason to come to the area and sidle up to the bar.

Caboose Brewing Company, the Vienna brewery which just celebrated its one-year anniversary last month, has announced plans to bring a 6,000-square foot brewery to the Mosaic District in Merrifield. The Mosaic Caboose will be located at the southwest corner of Lee Highway and Eskridge Road and, pending approval from Fairfax County, may offer public tastings and a beer garden, according to a press release.

Construction on Caboose Brewing Company in Mosaic is set to begin this fall and an opening is planned for early next year, said the release.
