Old Bust Head Brewing Company
Old Bust Head Brewing Company is named for a rural 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 nickname came about 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.
One thing is certain, Bust Head was a place that brought folks together in good spirits and built community—and that’s what we hope to do here at Old Bust Head Brewing Company.
While we’re serious about the art of crafting exceptional beer, and about our passion for the environment, we endeavor—like the folks who raised the glass at the first Bust Head—to keep things playfully in perspective and make life a bit more enjoyable for all of us.Locally brewed. Universally loved.
TastingCaramel Macchiato Stout - Oatmeal Stout
ABV: 5.7% IBU:30
Using our Oatmeal Stout as a base, and sustainably-sourced locally roasted coffee from Cafe Kreyol, our Caramel Macchiato Stout has the rich aroma of flavored iced coffee. Vanilla extract and natural sugar combine with the roasted malts to lend a subtle caramel sweetness for a brew that is refreshing in the summer and decadent in the winter!
ABV: 10% IBU:63
Inspired by the flavor of Horchata Lattes, Horchata Gold Cup takes the contrasting flavors of smooth vanilla, spicy cinnamon, and our bold Russian Imperial Stout to create one unbelievable beer! Hand-split fresh vanilla beans impart the characteristic aroma of vanilla, while lending a distinct graham cracker taste that intermingles with Gold Cup’s characteristic flavors of espresso and dark chocolate. Whole cinnamon sticks throw a spicy twist into the mix, that your nose and taste buds couldn’t miss, even if you tried!
