Bikeable Brews Along the W&OD, Custis, Mt Vernon, and Fairfax County Parkway Trails

The craft brew house listing now covers 100 miles of northern Virginia bike trails with the recent addition of places located near the Mt Vernon and Fairfax County Parkway trails. As you might expect, most of the ones near the Mt Vernon trail are clustered around Old Town, though there are a few good stops elsewhere, like Highline RxR in Crystal City and DRP Belle Haven. Not so many craft brew houses along the parkway trail, but at least the list does include Yard House with its 130 taps in Springfield, and 2 breweries – Fair Winds and Forge - in Lorton.  Currently the website lists 85 places including 20 brewery operations found close by the 4 trails. My mapping collaborator will add the parkway venues shortly, and is working on a modification that will specially highlight the breweries, brewpubs, and brewery-affiliates.
