Esoteric & Barrel Aged Craft Beer

Adroit Theory Brewing Company is a nano-brewery located in Purcellville, Loudoun County, Virginia. We make esoteric beers with an emphasis on barrel aging.

We are an extremely small brewery that makes beer one keg at a time. Even though we are small, we typically have 20 to 24 beers on draft at any time. We also bottle some, but not all, of our beers. We routinely have 16to 20 different styles bottled for either on or off site consumption. Our up to date Tap List is currently on our Facebook Page. 

Our Tasting Room is normally open Thursdays from 4pm-8pm, Fridays & Saturdays 12-8pm, and Sunday from 12pm-6pm. You may also visit us by scheduled appointment at info@adroit-theory.com.

At our Tasting Room we serve Tasters (3 ounces) and Tulips (10 ounces) of all of our beers. We do not serve "flights" instead electing to serve all of our beers individually. Tasters aret typically $3.00 each, and Barrel Aged variants are typically $4.50. Tulips are typically $8.00 each, and Barrel Aged variants are typically $9.50. We offer a variety of growler fill sizes. We sell our own growlers, but will also fill a growler you already own.

We do not have a kitchen on site, but we do offer pre-packaged sandwiches made by WK Hearth on Saturdays and Sundays. We also offer pre-packaged nuts at all times. We occasionally have food trucks. You may also bring your own food, or have it delivered.

Angel’s Trumpet - Mango IPA

Angel’s Trumpet - Mango IPA

Misunderstood, and strangely awake. Awkwardly aware of your mistake. A sense of purpose, to whom you belong; a sense of frailty, of right gone wrong. Gone forever the flower of youth; woe to all the misery of truth.

Our tribute to summer. Light body with tropical sweetness from hops and mango fruit addition. Subtle bitterness with a clean finish.

B/A/Y/S (Black As Your Soul) - Imperial Stout

B/A/Y/S (Black As Your Soul) - Imperial Stout

Tear off your suit-and-tie straightjacket; this soulful beer plunges you into the blackness we are normally numb to. Submerge yourself in the riches of an alternate life, outside the corporate fishbowl. Obscured in the depths of this Russian Imperial Stout you encounter a full-roasted body that provides food for dark contemplation. Hiding behind the toasted tones lurk intriguing wisps of complex flavors: aged woods, fresh fruits, earthy nuts. This malty exploration of the soul leaves you wondering: was the darkness in the bottle, or was it in me all along?

  • Style: Imperial Stout
  • Serving Temp: 52 - 56 degrees
  • ABV: 10.0%

Devil’s Breath - Belgian Tripel

Devil’s Breath - Belgian Tripel

As fleeting as a maiden’s kiss or the moment when dusk becomes twilight. The barest remnant of a dream…or a nightmare. It leaves you restless, edgy, unwilling to turn away, unable to move closer. Yet it lingers and beckons…

Our take on a Belgian Tripel. Light, semi-dry with floral notes and a hint of Belgian spice. Easy drinking and approachable, but with enough interesting qualities to make it an Adroit Theory beer.

  • Style: Belgian Tripel
  • Serving Temp: 50 - 55 degrees
  • ABV: 7.8%
  • IBU: 32
  • SRM: 3
  • Ghost: 173

G/I/A/A (God Is An American) - Imperial IPA

G/I/A/A (God Is An American) - Imperial IPA

The world trembles with the beat: the marching steps of mechanical sheep in plastic stalls. Where are they going, and who is holding the remote control? Resentment simmers, revolution boils, and the rage is just waiting to explode. A Siberian bitterness and a tropical Citra heat create anarchy in a glass, a rabble-rousing brew that refuses to be mastered. This Molotov Cocktail demands a response, hinting at ashes and ruin as we stare down the commercial/industrial monster. Join the protest. Craft the revolution.

  • Style: Imperial IPA
  • Serving Temp: 54 - 57 degrees
  • ABV: 11.0%
  • IBU: 127
  • SRM: 15
  • Ghost: 195

Lux - Wheatwine

Lux - Wheatwine

Tears, blood, and bone shards attend the transcendental mystery of the Ram. As with every true ritual, the altar is a killing floor. The more sacred the ritual, the more gruesome the blood-letting. We see the Ram as the primordial purging of Evil. Life feeds voraciously on the silence of the dead…

  • Style: Wheatwine
  • Serving Temp: 50 - 54 degrees
  • ABV: 9.3%
  • IBU: 98
  • SRM: 11

Ortolan Bunting - American Strong Ale

Ortolan Bunting - American Strong Ale

An ancient pagan ritual, a feast of gluttony, and an aromatic French brandy to give it the gloss of sophistication. We offer our Strong Ale as proof that a black market delicacy need not be only for those willing to break the law.

  • Style: American Strong Ale
  • Serving Temp: 58 – 62 degrees
  • ABV: 9.1%
  • IBU: 56

Tenebris - Barleywine

Tenebris - Barleywine

During Medieval times, “The Shadow of the Sun” was how European Alchemists defined the Crow. It was their symbol for the blackness of despair and chaos.

The Devil Made Me - Smoked Porter with Serrano Peppers

The Devil Made Me - Smoked Porter with Serrano Peppers

Fire and Brimstone – the fitting destination at the end of a terrible path. The faces: Gacy, Manson, Dahmer… Why do they do it? Where does the evil come from? Are they products of their environment, or is there a darker force at work? Many questions, but few answers. Fill your glass, and brood on the wickedness latent in the human heart. Then raise the glass in a toast to judgment and justice. Just don’t look them in the eyes, for you might see yourself.

  • Serving Temp: 55 - 60 degrees
  • ABV: 7.5%
  • IBU: 33
