There has been no movement on the construction of Aslin Beer Company‘s planned tasting room and bar in Herndon since November, according to the town’s manager Bill Ashton.
So far, the company has constructed “up to the limited of its current building permit,” Ashton said. “Staff is unaware as to why they haven’t done any further construction.”
Aslin did not return a request for comment from Reston Now. A spokesperson for the town declined to answer questions on the status of the project, including any clarifying details.
Still, Ashton said he is hopeful the company will “see something happening very soon.”
In the summer of 2017, the brewery was told to leave the Town of Herndon due to limitations of its current space at 257 Sunset Park Drive. Although Aslin found a new home at 771 Elden Street — the location of the former Napa Auto Parts — the approval process for the new location has been rocky.
In July last year, Northern Virginia Magazine reported the new location was set to open by the end of 2019.
