Black Dog Beer Shop – About Us

Black Dog Beer Shop

Are you looking for a great selection of local beers to take home? If so, we’ve got just the spont. We seek to provide millions* of craft beers for your enjoyment with a large selection of cold, local beers including 16 taps for growler fill-ups. Don’t have a growler? Don’t worry, we will have some for purchase. Found your growler but it’s filthy? Don’t worry we’ve got a solution for that too. We are located just steps from the Dunn Loring Metro Station at 2672 Avenir Place Suite M, Vienna, VA. Opening is tentatively scheduled for Winter 2019.

*or, you know, however many I can legally fit in the space.

Ash Williams aka “black dog”

This is Ash, the black dog in Black Dog Beer Shop. He is 1 year old and well over 80lbs. He may look scary but he is super playful and great with kids. Ash is also a big fan of ice, eating my shoes, and messing up my bed. When he gets mad that I am busy he tosses my sheets and pillows. Some of his favorite chew toys include steel, wood, and iron. Don’t leave your beer unattended around him, he will definitely steal it! You may see him in the shop from time to time.

I am a disabled Marine Veteran who currently works in the software development industry. The decision to open a beer shop came after continually searching for new beers. I have tried well over 575 different beers and I am always looking for more beer. I am originally from Indiana but I have lived on the east coast for the last 16 years including 5 in Virginia. Outside of beer my passions include cars, F1, and the NFL.
