Old Bust head 

Brewing Co


Old Bust Head Brewing Company is named for a bygone crossroads in the rolling hills of Fauquier County, Virginia. The locals who dubbed the corner ‘Bust Head’ enjoyed not only the potent libations brewed there, but also a little good humor. 

Some say the locals came up with the nickname when a neighbor fell off his horse after ‘overindulging’ at the corner shop one evening. Others say the locals who drank there were partial to Saturday night fights, or that they just fell down and busted their heads on the rough old country road. 

While we're serious about the art of crafting exceptional beer, and about our passion for our community and our environment, we salute those past and present who keep things playfully in perspective and make life a bit more enjoyable for all of us.

"They also have what seems to be a constant stream of food trucks, which were uniformly excellent across all my visits."

"Coconut Stout: A favorite! I hardly ever see these, and this was actually the main reason for my visit."
