Old Ox opened their second brewery location in Middleburg on Saturday after five years of success in Ashburn. Whitbeck attended the ribbon cutting ceremony alongside many serving public offices, including Mayor Bridge Littleton and Supervisor Tony Buffington.
“Loudoun is home to so many incredible wineries and breweries,” said Whitbeck. “I was happy to attend the ribbon cutting for Old Ox’s expansion to Middleburg.”
Old Ox is one of over 30 breweries in Loudoun County, many of which are also small, locally owned operations. Having started three businesses in Northern Virginia, Whitbeck understands the challenges many new owners face.
“Inconsistency and restrictions sends a signal to new businesses that Loudoun is not a business-friendly county,” said Whitbeck.
Whitbeck is committed to supporting local businesses such as Old Ox to strengthen our economy and provide Loudoun residents the opportunity to contribute their unique products and services to our community.
Old Ox is Middleburg’s first brewery and is located off Madison Street near the town office.
Whitbeck also spent time last week at the Loudoun County Fair, enjoying his Friday evening at the fairgrounds with his daughters.
