Independently owned one-stop brew shop featuring homebrew supplies, specialty beer sales and growler fills. Centrally located on Rte. 7 opposite 7 Corners Shopping Center.

Our address is 6201 Leesburg Pike in Falls Church, Virginia. We are on the West side of the McIlvaine office building located at Route Seven and Patrick Henry Drive. Our storefront faces the Sears department store on Juniper Lane and the Dogfishhead Alehouse at Seven Corners is just across the street. If you have trouble finding us just call (703) 241-3874, hit “0” and we will give you directions.


I don't know why but cleaning and sanitizing a keg at the brewery that sold through the shop just a few weeks ago is somehow surreal. I literally filled this keg at one job, sold it at another, and now I'm repeating the cycle.


Meow Ocelot has landed!

Also, this looks just like Annika's cat.


Fresh drop of Omega yeast funsies just in time for your holiday weekend of brewing!




Raspberry Lemon sour from Vasen and a vrett Saison from Vibrissa. Hell yes!


House 6, is... well... in da house!

Imperial Yeast I22 Capri 06/23/2022

Imperial Yeast I22 Capri

We're getting our first drop late next week!

Imperial Yeast I22 Capri Capri’s juicy ester aromatics, tropical flavors, and bright citrus notes emphasize the desirable qualities from the two popular parent strains: A38 Juice & A43 Loki.


Ohhh, heyyy...

Super-stoked to be getting regular can drops of Ocelot Brewing Company!


Fresh drop from Commonwealth, Cushwa and Resident Culture. Plus, a Tang! smoothie from Magnify. Decisions, decisions.


You can't have any pudding if you don't clean your plates.

Beer Me! - myLocal HomeBrew Shop

FYI, I ditched our Untappd Venue Page because they doubled their annual cost to us. I've since found another app and linked it to our webstore so you can once again see what we have on tap for fills and also kegs to go. I'm planning on keeping anywhere from 4 - 8 kegs on tap and hopefully just as many kegs in-stock for retail sale so let me know if you have a fave you want to see in our coolers. Unfortunately this app doesn't have a bottle option but you know we always have some kind of crazy sh*t in our fridges so stop on by!

Beer Me! - myLocal HomeBrew Shop CORRECTED Summer Hours: Closed Tuesdays beginning May 31. Regular storefront hours resume after Labor Day. Webstore open 24/7. Cheers!

Summer Hours Begin Next Week

As of May 31 we will be closed Tuesdays but will return to regular business hours after Labor Day.

If you find yourself in Chantilly on a Tuesday afternoon stop by Mustang Sally Brewing Co. for a beer and say hi! I'll be making a mess in the cellar (which I've been doing since December but adding hours over the summer). Cheers!


The rumors are true, Ocelot cans are in the wild! Two collabs, one core and for funsies I also brought in a WCIPA from Nost Project which is an Oozlefinch spinoff. 'Ooray for beer!


There is something extra satisfying about tapping a keg you just racked and filled on Monday. Fresh Mustang Sally Potomac Piks on tap now for growler a crowler fills!

PS: lok out for Ocelot cans dropping next week.


Attn Mazers! We just received 30lb of raw, unfiltered and hand packed Orange Blossom honey. The real deal if you will. Come on by!


Let us know if you are interested or want to pre-order! From Omega Yeast:

Introducing: Star Party—the latest in our Thiolized series.

The Thiolized process enhances the ability of yeast to unlock thiol precursors bound within malt and hops to create the kind of tropical character associated with Southern Hemisphere hops. Expect the same clean fermentation profile and clarity as its parental strain, Chico (West Coast Ale I), but with a big burst of thiols that's perfect for redefining classic styles, juicing up a West Coast IPA, or creating a unique style that highlights the thiol potential of regional hops and malt.

Star Party starts shipping in homebrew packs the week of May 23rd and is available for sale only in the US.*


Something about the cans Hop & Wine just delivered seems amiss, like they are bigger than normal. Lol, retail keg sales resume today. Let us know what you would like to see us keep in stock and non-stock special orders are always welcome.

And sorry but even if I could get Pliny kegs they would never make it past my mouth.


We have 4 freshly tapped and very tasty beers on tap for your weekend growler fill needs. Thankfully this is not one of them.

The History of 4/20

In case you were wondering how Lagunitas arrived at naming their spring DIPA. Ofc there is a story to Undercover Shutdown IPA too.

The History of 4/20 Steve Hager was the first person to interview the Waldos, a group of high school friends who started the 4/20 tradition. Hager was instrumental in both documenting and creating the 4/20 holiday we celebrate today. Here, he explains the full history of 4/20 in three acts.

Was it Hansen that did that song Mmm-Beer?

And is it just me, or is the green and red label on Commonwealth's Usurper WCTIPA kinda familiar looking?


Golden Naked Oats would make incredible granola.


Congrats indeed!

Uncle Fred's BBQ – Lip Smacking, Finger Licking Good 03/14/2022

Uncle Fred's BBQ – Lip Smacking, Finger Licking Good

Although the circumstances were unfortunate (funeral for a friend), I had the good fortune to try both the pulled chicken and pulled pork from Uncle Fred's BBQ a couple of days ago. Dare I say run to his next pop-upor just chase down his food truck! It's that good, imo.

Uncle Fred's BBQ – Lip Smacking, Finger Licking Good Uncle Fred’s BBQ was created in 2002 with the goal of providing some of the most authentic brisket, pulled pork, and award winning ribs in the area. We take a lot of pride in our food and BBQ is our life. Oh, and by the way we have some pretty tasty chicken.


3/12/22: myLHBS will be CLOSED today. Annika and I live 20 miles west of the shop and while conditions aren't too bad currently the dad in me doesn't want to be sedan-skating home near dark with temps in the 20's. As always, our webstore is open 24/7 and orders placed today and through the rest of the weekend will be prepared for you when we return on Tuesday. Be safe out there folks, and sorry for the inconvenience!


Mid-week beer drop. Hmm-mmm, .flx
