Three Stafford residents hope to open a microbrewery in the county by the end of the year.
Tim Bornholtz, John Viarella and Stan Johnson, each of whom has been home-brewing for at least 10 years, are working on plans for Adventure Brewing Co.
According to the posts on the brewery's Facebook page, the trio has met with Stafford County officials with the goal of changing some zoning laws to accommodate the operation. Another interesting tidbit picked up on Facebook is that Adventure Brewing Company was registered in the Commonwealth of Virginia on March 17, St. Patrick's Day!

I wish Tim, John, and Stan much success! Hopefully I'll get the chance to report on the product soon.
