While this threads back up (as I'm sure most of the locals already know) Jay's Brewing is now located in Manassas. I went in there for the first time last week, and dug the place. Just a little out of the way for me normally.

I'll be interested if it's metro accessible

Second that Jay's Brewing is great... though not metro accessible. Have had a lot of success there so far

It was a great move for that store. More space, and you crush your own grain now.

Oh yeah... And it went from a 30 minute drive to a 10 minute drive for me. Even better.

Derek was saying that there is going to be a club starting in the Bristow/Manassas area, but i hadnt heard anything else. Anyone know anything? I have three brew buddies within a block of me

That is not as convenient as Falls Church is for me.

This is the boat that I'm in as well. General selection appears to be about the same (although Jay's had a specific malt that myLHBS didn't, hence why I was in there), prices about the same, I haven't had the bad experiences others have had with customer service in Falls Church, and it's just closer for me.

A bit of a drive, but there is a LHBS in Fredericksburg, VA off of exit 126. See thebrewshop.biz. They have a little bit of everything, and the prices are great.

For those that asked for metro accessibility. Looks like the 3 Stars Brewery is going to be starting a homebrew shop in Takoma Park off the red line

I don't mind a little drive to a shop, but I'd be overjoyed to see a place that was open until 7 or 8 PM on a weekday or two.
