Co-founder Jon Humerick said Solace decided to partner with H2 Collective and Pub Partners, which runs BlackFinn and Freebyrd, because the agreement allows each vendor to play to their strengths and best serve future customers of Solace Outpost.
“We’re the beer guys, we know brewing. We don’t know restaurants,” he told Tysons Reporter.
While Mad Fox Brewing had more of a sit-down, formal atmosphere, according to Humerick, he said he plans for Solace Outpost to be causal. “It’s going to be similar to what we have here in Sterling.”
The location will feature both indoor and outdoor seating and have “rustic-industrial” decorations — including wood accents and a concrete bar, he said.
Solace Outpost will be the company’s second brewing location, and Humerick said the location will produce a “significant volume” of beer.
“The new brewery will feature experimental IPAs and other beers and methods, such as kettle sours and smaller batches but will keep a core quartet of Solace favorites — Sun’s Out Hops Out, Lucy Juicy, Partly Cloudy and Crazy Pils — permanently on tap,” according to a press release.
Going forward, Humerick added that they are still working with Solace’s partners to work out the details and he will have more details within the coming months.
