Craft brew establishments along the W&OD trail

Riders cycling on the Washington and Old Dominion trail in Northern Virginia can build up quite a thirst. I know I do, and for that reason I've undertaken research to compile a list of places near the trail where a cyclist might stop for some craft brew refreshment. is the result of my research efforts to date. I've tried to identify every establishment serving craft beer that is located near the W&OD. The list encompasses the entire 44.8-mile length of the trail, from Shirlington in south Arlington to Purcellville in Loudoun County. I will gladly add any place I may have missed. The only criteria for inclusion: must be no more than 1.5 miles from the W&OD and serve beer on premises, with the focus on craft brews.
