After a nearly two-year-long wait, Aslin Beer Company has begun construction on its new tasting room and bar in Herndon after receiving a green light from the Town of Herndon in July.
The company has begun constructing its new location — which will include a tasting room, terrace seating, and a rooftop bar — after it was told to leave its former location at Sunset Park Drive roughly four years ago. The new tasting room and bar will be located at 771 Elden Street.
The start-up left its home at 257 Sunset Park Drive after the owners were told to scale back operations due to a ruling by the county’s fire marshal, Reston Now previously reported.
Based on its currently approved permits, the business must halt building its Herndon location when the structure is built up to the original location. Additional building permits are required to complete the remainder of the project, said Bill Ashton, the Town of Herndon’s town manager.
“We’re watching them like hawks,” said Bill Ashton, who recently updated the Herndon Town Council about the developer.
Aslin Beer Company did not return requests for comment from Reston Now.
