In order to get the full picture of this crazy concept (CBC), join us on the journey that brought us here. In early 2015, a group of five young entrepreneurs came together to take on a very ambitious project in the heart of Tysons, VA, and after a year of preparation, Tysons Biergarten officially opened its doors to the public. TBG brought the features and excitement of a German Biergarten to Northern Virginia, with 40+ taps of German, Belgian, Austrian, and American craft beer, complemented by authentic German food and a great atmosphere. Almost instantly, the public gravitated to the new concept and after a few successful years, it was recognized as local staple. TBG held events that attracted thousands of people from all sorts of backgrounds, hosted charity events with children from a local homeless shelter, and even hosted campaign fundraisers for local political offices. TBG earned various awards through the years and was featured in numerous publications ranging from local news channel broadcasts to articles in the Washington Post. Catching lightning in a bottle, Tysons Biergarten was truly an American success story.
Fast forward two years… Late December 2018, a small hole in the wall in Alexandria, VA, became the new home for our second restaurant, Hops N Shine. At HnS, we take great pride in being an artisan destination with a unique and constantly evolving menu. If you walk into Hops N Shine today, the first thing you’ll see is our enormous mural, 52 incredible craft beers on tap, a mouthwatering custom gourmet grilled cheese menu, and an extensive list of our delicious moonshine infusions that will have your taste buds singing for more. HnS is the perfect laid-back location for meeting with family, friends, coworkers, or even your dog on the back patio!
In early 2019, with several combined years of experience and loads of new ideas, we began putting a new concept into action that when finished will truly showcase the levels of creativity and ambition of our team. Insert our newest project, ShipGarten. Shipgarten will shock your senses when you see its abstract design. There will be four shipping containers, yes, the same containers you see on cargo ships. Each container will be transformed into a unique, fully functioning restaurant and bar, and they will all be situated together under one roof. The concepts will include Persian fast/casual, Asian fusion, American BBQ, and a German Biergarten. With Shipgarten’s crafty design, the opportunities for internal adjustments will be limitless.
In addition to Shipgarten, CBC has another concept on the horizon. After years of negotiating lease terms with various property owners, CBC decided to take a different approach and become their own landlord! Now introducing our latest project, Herndon Biergarten! HBG will have an 11,000 SF patio which will plunge you into a traditional Bavarian biergarten, where anyone and everyone will be welcome and will experience a sense of unity. There will be a 2000 SF indoor bier hall which will have 50+ draft lines and an extensive whiskey selection……………… to be continued after we finalize the menu.
