The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors approved special zoning exception for the Caboose Brewing Co. to develop a new brewery, tasting room, and beer garden on Eskridge Road next to the Mosaic District in Merrifield. They will convert an old warehouse on Eskridge Road into a brewery and restaurant. Caboose makes a variety of craft beers and ales, and this will be the second location for the one-year old brewery founded by two former local tech executives. The project will include a landscaped, urban green area with benches, public art, bike racks, space for a future bikeshare station, a new eight-foot wide sidewalk along Eskridge Road, and a new crosswalk to connect with Strawberry Lane.
