Just like the lovers of fine stock who raised ‘improved’ Shorthorn cattle in the barns across from Old Bust Head, we’ve raised the bar for an American favorite with our Shorthorn American Pale Ale. This fine brew starts off with lemon and grapefruit notes on the front end, followed by spicy tones, and a clean, soft, bitterness, and finishes with a touch of malt sweetness. Shorthorn, like its namesake, is a gentle giant that commands attention!
Old Bust Head Brewing Company is named for a bygone crossroads in the rolling hills of Fauquier County, Virginia. The locals who dubbed the corner ‘Bust Head’ enjoyed not only the potent libations brewed there, but also a little good humor.
While we're serious about the art of crafting exceptional beer, and about our passion for our community and our environment, we salute those past and present who keep things playfully in perspective and make life a bit more enjoyable for all of us.
