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 24 beers on draft at any time, plus a dedicated Cask line. We also bottle some, but not all, of our beers. We routinely have 16 to 20 different styles bottled for either on or off site consumption. Be sure to check our constantly changing Tap List from the menu above. 

Our Tasting Room is normally open Thursdays from 4pm-8pm, Fridays & Saturdays 12-8pm, and Sunday from 12pm-6pm. We will be open from 12-6pm on Monday 2/15 for Presidents' Day. 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 offer pre-packaged cheesecake (a surprisingly good beer pairing) & pre-packaged nuts at all times. We occasionally have food trucks. You may also bring your own food, or have it delivered.
