Rappahannock Red Ale is brewed with a blend of five specialty malts, two types of American hops, and a select strain of top-fermenting yeast. We found this Red Ale to deliver a complex flavor and a thick, creamy head. Note a floral malty nose with a definite hop spiciness evident in the nose of this full-bodied amber colored beer. It starts with a sweet maltiness and finishes bitter, clean and dry. Overall, a well-balanced, full-flavored Red Ale. We really liked it and think you will too!
The Potomac River Brewing Company was founded in Chantilly, Virginia in 1993. Located just outside the Washington, D.C. area, Potomac River brews four different beers, making use of only American grown malts and hops. The brewery purchases hops primarily from the Pacific Northwest. In addition to Rappahannock Red and Patowmack (Indian for "Potomac") Pale Ale, the brewery also offers Doublenut Brown Ale, and Mount Vernon Porter.

Potomac’s beers feature distinctive paintings by wildlife artist Bill Bolen. Each is a different native Virginia wildlife scene, commissioned in oil on canvas and then adapted for their labels.
