Though Audacious Aleworks had their ribbon opening ceremony in June 2018, co-owner Brian Reinoehl can’t pinpoint that as the opening date of Falls Church’s new microbrewery as they had started with a soft opening a couple of months earlier while they were still expanding their  space.

Audacious Aleworks, the brainchild of Brian Reinoehl and Mike Frizzell, is a tap room with an on-site brewery. Their bare bones setup doesn’t offer a food menu outside of snacks and provides for a beer tasting experience similar to a winery where people can taste multiple beers in 4-ounce servings as well as traditional 12-ounce sizes.

Although Reinoehl and Frizzell have always enjoyed beer, they were never part of the community of amateur brewers. Instead, they simply saw a good business opportunity a few years ago when they visited Bad Wolf Brewery in Manassas.

At the time, the two had been running an IT consulting company called Sumatech Productions for 20 years. In addition, Reinoehl owns a moon bounce company and Frizzell owns three laundromats.

The two have also relied on support from other brewers for guidance. Reinoehl estimates he visited 100 other breweries in the process of learning the ins and outs of the business. He was especially flattered that many of the other brewers he’s come to befriend attended this month’s ribbon cutting. Falls Church’s other major brewery, Mad Fox Brewing Company on West Broad Street, has been particularly welcoming.

Audacious Aleworks Brewery & Taproom is a small craft brewery specializing in small batch ales. We have over 15 beers on tap at all times and our tap menu rotates often. We are family friendly and customers are free to bring in food or have it delivered at any time. We offer free popcorn to enjoy with your beverage. Beer is available to go in cans and growlers.
