Craft brewer Water’s End Breweryfounded by a former Fairfax County police officer in 2016, is opening a fourth location, this time in the Village at Leesburg development in Virginia.
End of water will be part of the transformation of the existing Chefscape food hall, which is being repositioned as Dell: Food & Brew Hall.
“The Dell” is a reference to a natural gathering space and safe haven.
It will join other local businesses including Lucky Dog, Paulie’s Fresh Handmade Pasta and Colombian’s Place. It will open sometime this spring.
Restaurant veteran Artie Simcox, owner of Artie’s in Fairfax, runs Chefscape and wanted to add a brewery. Water’s End came up in conversations with Village at Leesburg manager Rappaport.
“When Artie said brewery, I thought of Water’s End and knew I had to introduce him to Zach Mott,” said Rappaport President Henry Fonvielle. Mott co-founded Water’s End with Ryan Sharkey.
Mote, a former police officer, said he realized how much fun he could have pairing his beer with the food hall’s wide variety of food.
“Furthermore, there was no way I was going to turn down the opportunity to work with Artie, whose reputation, experience and success in the top-tier restaurant industry,” Mott said.
Chefscape opened in 2019 initially as a ghost kitchen for new local restaurants.
Water’s End has opened its first brewery in Lake Ridge and its second in 2020 in Woodbridge at the Potomac Festival. Last year, it opened a third location in a historic building in downtown Fredericksburg. The Fredericksburg location also has a partnership with Woodbridge Hot chicken kitchen.
Water’s End beers have names like Damn Beer, Hopdrop and Don’t Haze Me, Bro!
