Had lunch with some friends at Mad Fox today, my first trip there though I've tried a few of their beers.

The set up is very nice and modern looking, with a long bar on the left side, and plenty of room for tables and booths throughout. Our waiter was very attentive and helpful, and the food was good (we got fried pickles and I had a brisket sandwich).

Moving onto the beer, they had about 10 beers on tap and 1 on cask, and you can get 4 4 oz. pour flights for $6, which is what I did. I tried their ESB, Oatmeal Stout, Snapped IPA, and their new wheatwine. While nothing blew me away, they wewre all very solid. I also picked up a growler of their new Belgian strong ale, which the menu said uses the same strain of yeast that Duvel uses; looking forward to trying it.

Overall the food and beers are very solid and it's a great setup. I'll surely be back more than once.

Very nice restaurant and brewery. The food is excellent. They've paired down the menu since I was last there, but still a good variety. The beer is always good. Service is nice. the building if clean and in a good area. Nice place!

Great place to have a few good beers for happy hour! They do have some quality beers, the hummus appetizer is very tasty and the Mad Fox burger was phenomenal!

It's a bit of a cross-town drive from southern Alexandria to western Falls Church -- a half-hour to 45 minutes in rush hour traffic -- but well worth the trek. Orange Whip is one of the reasons. I'm not all that knowledgeable about beers -- I'm a lot more familiar with single malt Scots whisky - but could gladly drink Orange Whip all night long. And that's just one of the many great brews at Mad Fox. The beers are outstanding, and the food is generally out of this world. In the four years since it opened, Mad Fox Brewing has become the place we visit most often. I don't see that changing anytime soon!
