Voted Best Bar in Loudoun County!

Picture yourself on a white-sand beach, chillin to reggae and Jimmy Buffett, sipping beer at a bar fashioned from a shipwrecked boat and 
soaking up some rays.

Key West? Nah, Leesburg, Virginia!

Welcome to MacDowell Brew Kitchen, where laid-back fun is an everyday experience and no one is a stranger.

Lots of people ask where we came up with the idea. You might say it was born of beer-fueled nights with Gordon MacDowell, but that would be giving him too much credit.

MacDowell Brew Kitchen opened in November 2011 with six beer taps at a plywood bar, and a simple menu with things like sexy fries and frickles. Customers told us they wanted more varieties of beer, we added a few things to the menu (think beer-battered apple rings) and a legend was born.

No, really, a legend. In just two years MacDowell Brew Kitchen had racked up every major business award in the county (give or take a few). Live music on the beach or in our large, indoor back-bar, is a mainstay experience. Visitors travel from around the world just to say “Hi” and hang out by our outdoor fire pits.

So, kick back, relax. Tables are first-come, first-served, and island time begins the moment you walk in the door. Our award-winning staff will treat you like family. Because, well, you are.
