Craft beer maker Caboose got approval to serve up its pilsners, Berliner Weisse and other microbrews, along with its farm-to-fork dishes, at a new brewery in Mosaic. They will convert an old warehouse on Eskridge Road, just south of Lee Highway, into a brewery and restaurant. The plans for the new brewery include about 160 seats, a 3,240-square foot tasting room, and beer garden on the building’s south side. The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors signed off on these plans on Tuesday. This will be the second location for the one-year old brewery founded by two former local tech executives.
“I am really excited that Caboose Brewery will be expanding to the Mosaic District in Merrifield,” said Fairfax Board Chair Sharon Bulova. “It’s always good news when a great business chooses to grow here and stay here in Fairfax County. Every tenant who joins the mixed-use Mosaic District community helps fulfill two major goals of Fairfax County’s Economic Success Plan – diversifying our economy and creating places where people want to be.” Caboose says that it expects that its new brewery will open next year.
