Beer Here: Sneak Peek at Aslin Beer Company

Workers were still busy on Friday with finishing touches, but Aslin Beer Company says it will be ready to pour its first beers Saturday at 11 a.m.

Herndon’s first nanobrewery is located at 257 Sunset Park Drive.

Co-owners are Andrew Kelley, a management consultant who lives in Clarendon; his brother-in-law Kai Leszkowicz, a Fairfax County employee who lives in Herndon; and Richard Thompson, who will run the day-to-day operation.

Kelley and Leszkowicz have been home brewing for several years. Read more in this previous Reston Now story.

Aslin will start out serving six beers on tap, said Kelley: an IPA, Double IPA, Imperial Stout, Lime Kolsch, Rye Ale, Saison, Black IPA.

Aslin plans to offer food from Day 1 from nearby restaurants A Taste of the World (Asian wings, empanadas and a take on chicken and waffles) and The Wiener’s Circle (brats and hot dogs), said Kelley.

Beer will run from $5-7  a pint. Food will be $5-8 per small plate.

Look for a mug club (with handmade mugs from Potter’s Fire) coming soon, as well as movie nights and game nights in the space, which will have 28 seats.

Here are Aslin’s hours: 3 to 9 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays; 3 to 10 p.m. Fridays; 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturdays; noon to 6 p.m. on Sundays. Closed Mondays and Tuesdays.
