ConSTRUCTION STARTED ON MOSAIC DISTRICT LOCATION
Caboose has begun construction on its new Mosaic District location, transforming a 6,000 square-foot warehouse into an environmentally sustainable brewpub. The new location is scheduled to open in summer 2018, and will be on the southwest corner of Lee Highway and Eskridge Road. Click here to learn more details.
An Inside Look...
Due to limited seating we can only accept reservations of up to 6 guests. Larger groups can be accommodated at the bar or as a private party.
Parking At Caboose
At Caboose, we believe that few things go together as well as a great beer, great food, and some exercise. No, really–when we picked our Vienna location, this is what we had this in mind. You may even have noticed the piles of bikes out back on any given day (or the number of people who make their entire trek to Caboose by walking the W&OD) to demonstrate that we're definitely not the only people who love the triple pairing. That being said, we love having a location where we can have a patio close to the trail and facing the woods, and where the zoning allowed us to manufacture beer in Vienna–but the challenge that this location has presented is that there really is incredibly limited parking.
Thanks to our wonderful customers, Caboose has been successful in spite of this “atypical” location and our limited seating. Listening to our customers, we do realize this location sometimes presents a fair number of challenges. So we want to apologize for that–and say that we're continuously working to improve current situation–but it unfortunately takes time.
How can you avoid parking issues:
- Utilize our parking map to find 'safe' places to park without fear of being towed. You can access the map here.
- Walk, run, bike (skateboard, inline skate, bear crawl, etc.) on the W&OD Trail.
- Use Lyft, Uber, or simply carpool to Caboose.
If you have any questions or have any ideas for us for parking improvements, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org! We love your input.
Farm to Fork
Caboose Brewing Co. and Yohanan Farm
At Caboose, we focus on serving farm to table cuisine, with an emphasis on sourcing from our local community. In late 2017, a few of the Caboose team members went to visit our local chicken farm- Yohanan Farm. Yohanan is a small scale family farm in Purcellville, VA. The Johnsons raise pastured poultry in the most sustainable way. Their farm does not use GMO's, pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics, growth hormones, appetite stimulants or confinement houses. In fact, nothing separates their chickens from the pastures on which they thrive. Every day, the birds are moved to fresh pasture for unlimited foraging and play. Their chickens consume lush grass, insects, and a custom blend of probiotics and organic (non-certified) feed from a locally-sourced mill. We put together this video to give you a better look at a normal day at Yohanan Farm, and what makes them so special. By supporting Caboose, you support your local chicken farmers. The Johnsons say, “Someday, hopefully within a generation or two, this will be an old conversation, and there will be no more poison in the food system. Until then, we will continue on.” If anyone is interested in learning more about the effect of arsenic in our food chain, here are a few academic studies and press releases: Playing Chicken, USA Today, Grist: FDA Admits, Grist: Ending Arsenic.
