The mission of Old Trade Brewery is to revitalize the art and culture of hand-crafted seasonal and traditional beers once popular in America and Europe. Old Trade offers a family-friendly environment that drives innovation in the brewing industry as well as involving and enriching the local community.
Old Trade Brewery is a rural, farm-based operation located in Brandy Station, VA (Culpeper County). Brandy Station is located conveniently near the cities of Culpeper, Warrenton, and Manassas and is within 1.25 miles of major highway Route 29.
Old Trade Brewery is soft opened days of May 13, 2017 to May 18, 2017 and our Grand opening weekend is on June 1st, 2017 come visit!!
Old Trade’s assortment of beers, emulates traditional American and European, farm-centric beers. Included in this lineup are the traditional American beers such as Pale Ale and IPA, Belgian-style beers such as Saisons and Lambics, and English based beers like Porter and Mild. Old Trade also creates unique beers sourced from farm ingredients such as raspberries, pecans and peaches and other available farm fresh ingredients.
The farm operates with a hop yard and half acre of cider trees and pear, cherry trees. In addition to the crops the farm has multiple bee hives which is integrated into the beer production as well.
Another unique feature of the farm brewery is the “barrel program,” which entails aging beer in used spirit and wine barrels. Old trade has purchased many of its barrels from local vineyards and distilleries.
The used barrels add interesting and unique flavors to many beer styles. The barrel program allows an advanced barrel aging schedule which allows for beer styles like barley wine and sour/ wild beers to gain increased complexity.
