Support a veteran-owned business: Try Heritage Brewing Company

Supporting veterans should be enjoyable.  What better way to support a veteran than to enjoy a glass of Heritage Brewing Company beer?  Heritage Brewing Company is two-thirds veteran owned.  We recently ducked over to Manassas, Virginia to check out the brewery.

Heritage Brewing Company opened in January of this year and is already offering a variety of great beers in the American tradition.  They offer both year-round and seasonal beers on tap in their tasting room.

Their year-round beers include:

  • The Teddy, an East Coast Pale Ale
  • Revolution, an American Amber Ale
  • Kings Mountain, a Scot-American Ale

How can you support them?  Drop by their tasting room at 9436 Center Point Lane, Manassas, Virginia, to try a few styles of beer and take a growler to go.  Alternatively, ask your favorite bartender if the restaurant can offer Heritage on tap.  Unfortunately, they do not sell bottles or cans at the moment but they plan to produce their beer in cans in the near future.


Affordable yoga studio space in Falls Church?

Do you want to start a yoga studio in Falls Church but need to find space which is affordable?  To be sustainable, you need to keep costs at a minimum while providing a proper environment for students and practitioners.

At Post 130, we invite you to consider our hall.  Our hall is 1000 square feet and accommodates 85 people.  It has Wi-Fi internet and other accommodations.  We regularly rent our hall in the evenings but it is mostly unused during the day.  Therefore, we can arrange an agreement in which you use the hall on a recurring basis for a few hours a week during off-peak times at a rate lower than the peak rental rate.

Besides yoga, we can offer the hall on a recurring basis for other uses such as:

  • A training seminar classroom.
  • A bicycle or running clinic on the weekend or in the evening during certain weekdays (we are next to the W&OD Trail).
  • Any time space is needed.

Remember, we have some flexibility so feel free to ask us.  If you’re interested, contact Bob, the Post Commander, at 703-533-1945.
