About MacDowell Brew Kitchen

MacDowell Brew Kitchen Restaurant - Serving the Best Beer from our own Micro-Brewery!  Awesome Bar Food and Fun Happy Hour at our Brew Pub!

 

 

We are located in Leesburg, VA, but our happy customers visit us from all over Northern Virginia - Areas like Ashburn, Purcellville, Sterling & Loudoun County.

 

MacDowell Brew Kitchen, the newest nano brewery in the area, will be introducing the finest in craft beers that will be brewed on premises under the direction of several master brewers. We are not brewing yet as of March 2012 due to a lengthy permit process, but we will very soon. MacDowell Brew Kitchen has some very special beers on draught and bottles brewed by other nano breweries in the mean time.  Our menu includes BBQ, American Cuisine, and other surprises!

MacDowell Brew Kitchen is rounding out the “Beer Block” on Harrison Street, SE located across from Tuscarora Mill and Fireworks, forming a “Beermuda Triangle”.  Our bar will be custom built (Spring of 2012) by MacDowell Custom Kitchens.

Nils is originally from Germany. Born in Bramel, by Bremerhaven.  Nils is a school bus driver and stay at home dad,  better-known among friends as “Mr. Mom”.  He has over 6 years of experience in the restaurant business and looks forward to bringing his vast experience to MacDowell Brew Kitchen.  A home brewer and soccer fan, Nils is happily married to native Leesburgian, Natalie, and together they have an adorable 2 year old son, a.k.a. “future brewer”.

Gordon moved to Loudoun County  in 1975.  He is a graduate of Loudoun County High School and shortly thereafter opened MacDowell Custom Kitchens.  Since 1987, MacDowell Custom Kitchen offices have been a landmark in historic downtown Leesburg.  The success of his kitchen business prompted expansion in 1990 when he opened a second location in Old Town Alexandria.  In 1996 MacDowell saved the “Mighty Midget Kitchen” from demolition, restored the structure and reopened across from Market Station. The Kitchen Business will be expanding their offices into the back of the building, to make room for the new venture, MacDowell Brew Kitchen. Gordon MacDowell has been a home brewer for several years and is eager to share his brews with the public!
