Across from the outlet malls, this is an island location in a strip mall. A “teen-aged” family restaurant, there are TVs around the large bar, which itself is surrounded by table seating. With wood decor in an otherwise contemporary setting, this bar offers about 30 taps of craft beer. The mix is nicely varied: local craft and both regional and national Mid-range breweries (I.e. Founders and Lagunitas). The menu included some sought after beers, some staples, and a nice swath of local options.

Service is friendly, but they do seem to get a little distracted at times. I didn’t get to witness the knowledge of their offerings because I easily knew what I wanted from the list.

The food I had tasted good, I’d put what I had in the slightly upscale bar food category.

How could I not love a place with 33 interesting beers on tap? Most places seem to concentrate too heavily on IPAs for my taste but at LPH I can always find my a few of my favorite styles (imperial stouts and sour beers) to try. The kegs kick quickly enough that I rarely see the same beers two visits in a row.

The food ranges from tasty and innovtive variations on pub food to entrees that would be completely at home in a fancy expensive restaurant. The soup of the day almost always catches my eye as a nice start for dinner and can range from a hearty bean soup to a delicate smoked tomato gouda. There are lots of tasty appetizers too which run the gamut from bacon popcorn to fried green tomatoes to braised short rib tostadas. Entrees include large, tasty burgers, fish and chips good enough to draw my friends on their own, and a hearty herb crusted ribeye.

The service is friendly and efficient. Servers are happy to offer advice on beer or cocktail selections or the appetizing menu which gets updated several times a year.

Sept 2017, went by during bike trip from Pittsburgh to D.C. LPS is fairly large and noisy, the only negatives. Bacon popcorn is good, snack on! I had flank steak Caesar, excellent. Wife had shrimp avocado salad. Friend had a special BBQ brisket. Many local beer choices descriptions good. Server not very knowledgeable. But we persevered. 4 oz pours available to try. All in all 2 thumbs up.

The food is a work in progress. All I've had is burgers and the bacon popcorn appetizer (GET SOME OF THIS). Very nice, quick waitstaff. Great selection of beers on tap. I think this place will do well, despite the demise of everything else that has popped up in the same location.

A great new spot, and probably the best one going in Leesburg, VA for the combination of beer selection and pretty darn good food. The chef was from one of the finer dining establishments in Purcellville, VA and has a pretty broad menu, despite not being too lengthy. I've tried at least half of the appetizers and there is only one that I would call "marginal." Bacon popcorn is a must try.

The beer selection is tops in the region with over 30 beers on tap and onother 1/2 dozen bottled. Regular tap takeovers from local breweries supplement the draft selection. Cask beer available at times too.

The bar area is in the middle of the restaurant, but if you simply go to eat, you don't feel drowned out by bar noise. TVs line the upper well inside the bar and the staff is friendly and knowledgable about what's flowing.

If you like to try different beers, you will never get tired of this place. If you want a good meal, you are sure to get one there. Simply put, the place is good enough to have established a healthy clientele despite a horrific location next to a Burger King in the Walmart parking lot.
