How Old Bust Head Brewery Got Its Name

There's a rural crossroad in Fauquier County that the locals dubbed "Bust Head." Apparently, it was a good place to enjoy libations that were brewed there, and good fun. But why the name "Bust Head'? Some say it's because a neighbor fell off his horse after "overindulging" at the corner crossroad shop. Still, others say that Saturday night fights at the establishment resulted in busted heads. No matter. The point is, that the rural crossroad known unofficially as Bust Head, brought people together, and it helped to build community. That's why the current brewery decided to take its name. What's more, the good folks at the brewery continue the tradition of building community. With events like Social Yoga, Trivia Night, and Grab Your Growler Thursdays, we always feel comfortable encouraging our guests to visit there. We know they will feel welcomed and included as part of the Fauquier community. Book your next stay with us, and let us show you all that the Warrenton area has to offer!
