    Old Dominion Turns Blue, Loses Brewery

    From the Washington City Paper blog City Desk

    It’s been a historic time for Virginia. On Tuesday, the state turned blue, voting for a Democratic presidential nominee for the first time in decades. In March, the state will lose its signature brewery, according to Greg Kitsock, the suds guru for the Washington Post. The Old Dominion Brewing Co. plans to shutter its facility in Ashburn and increase production at its other plant in—wait for it, wait for it–Delaware. (Hey, doesn’t Delaware already have a famous microbrew?)

    Local beer geeks are deciding whether they will remain loyal to the area’s oldest microbrew once it abandons Virginia. What do you think? Will you continue to buy Old Dominion? Or will you tell it to kiss off, much like Old Dominion has done to the state after which the company took its name?

    In the meantime, I suggest Old Dominion change its name to Small Wonder.
