Crooked Run Brewing began as a small brewery and tasting room located in historic downtown Leesburg, Virginia, in a 600 sq. ft. space. Focusing on providing traditional and innovative ales & lagers, made using local ingredients. Nestled in Market Station, a trip to the brewery provides a fun and exciting trip for everyone.
Jake Endres, co-owner and brewer at Crooked Run started brewing when he turned 21. Over the years, he got more and more into homebrewing, and when he turned 25, he decided to open a small brewery. After a year researching and developing the concept for Crooked Run he and fellow homebrewer, Lee Rogan, opened the nanobrewery in July 2013, with two beers, a Belgian single and an English pale ale. At the time, we were the youngest brewery owners in the nation.
Money was raised via Kickstarter to purchase a small 1.5-barrel electric brewing system. From there the business grew to a three-barrel sour facility.
In 2016, Crooked Run took home a gold medal at the World Beer Cup, a bi-annual event celebrating the art and science of brewing, for the microbrewery’s Supernatural brew in the “Other Belgian-Style Ale” category. The international blind tasting had 6,596 entries with over 1,900 breweries entering from 55 countries.
After three years in business, in February 2017, they opened a second location in Sterling, featuring a 10 BBL brewhouse, large taproom, and on-site taqueria, tripling their capacity. The new location allowed them to focus on bottling and expand their product into the restaurant market.
Crooked Run is a brewery in Loudoun County, Virginia. We started back in 2013 in a 600 sq ft space in downtown Leesburg. Now, we have a ten barrel brewery and taqueria, where we produce many different beers for a thriving taproom with great food, great people, and great music. You can find our beer around the DMV on tap and in cans, with special releases every Friday at our two locations in Loudoun!
