About the Brewery
Mad Horse Brewpub is Northern Virginia’s place for local craft beer. Located in Lovettsville, Virginia, they offer some of the best hand-crafted brews in the area. With a homemade root beer and birch beer, local wine from North Gate Vineyard as well as offering light fare to accompany the enjoyable and friendly environment, Mad Horse has just the right setting to put you at ease.
David Ratliff learned of the brewpub’s sale in December of 2014 and knew Mad Horse was perfect for his dream of following his entrepreneurial dreams. In June of the following year he closed the deal and moved his family to the heart of Lovettsville. After home brewing for five years, he became a serious hobbyist when he wasn’t satisfied with the brews available abroad. Like many in this area, his hobby soon turned into a second business.
The brewpub is open seven days a week pouring custom beers. The company is focused on being fully integrated with the community and has made efforts to work closely with neighbors, community groups, and becoming involved in town events.
Ratliff made it clear that he’s committed to dramatically improving the quality and variety of beers. After introducing several new ones, which have already received positive buzz, he wants to be sure everyone in the surrounding neighborhood and even out-of-towners have a place to stop to fulfill their brew needs.
