Festival Menu Specials

Lodging Options

There are a lot of places to stay in Northern Virginia. We're Metro accessible via the Orange Line East Falls Church Metro station, so you don't have to stay right in the neighborhood. In fact, there are a bunch of great pub crawling options off of the Orange Line Arlington Metro stations between Ballston and Courthouse. But, if you want to camp out with us late and enjoy Sunday Brunch early, by all means stay at one of the walking distance options.

Public Transportation

Mad Fox encourages Barleywine Fest participants to walk or use public transportation. It really is very easy, we provide the directions.

For February 22-24, 2013, Metro will be running shuttle buses to the Metro stations between Ballston and Vienna Metro stations. Details are on the Metro Service Advisory page. Check the Metro trip planner to see if regular bus service is a better choice for you.
