Mad Fox Taproom announced Aug. 12 that it expects to open in Glover Park by first quarter 2014. It will be Mad Fox Brewing Company’s first expansion from Falls Church, Va., to the District.
Mad Fox Brewing Company just celebrated the third anniversary of its Fall Church location in July and now has another reason to celebrate. Madden is hoping to took over the property at 2218 Wisconsin Ave., NW, where Mayfield & Pine once was, in September.
Mad Fox CEO and executive brewer Bill Madden and business partner Rick Garvin started Mad Fox in 2007 and since have become very active in the craft beer and brewpub community.
Falls Church will remain the hub of the whole operation, as all of the beers will be brewed there in its 16-barrel brewery. The new location will showcase Mad Fox’s award-winning handcrafted beers with draught and English-style cast service, including up to 24 draught and cask options.
“We have plenty of capacity in our brewery and we’ll be able to serve all of our Falls Church fans, wholesale clients and the Glover Park tap room without any compromises,” said Madden.
Just like the original in Falls Church, Mad Fox Taproom will provide guests with not only handcrafter beers, but also with a full menu including appetizers, sandwiches, burgers, salads and small plate options.
“Though the spotlight will be on our beers, our food is a key part of our concept and will help the taproom evoke a brewpub environment,” said Madden.
“I can’t wait to bring the Mad Fox atmosphere and experience to the iconic city of Washington, D.C.” said Madden.
