D on’t let the big brewers have all the fun. Dynasty Brewing Company has found its sweet spot, and they’re loving it. Favio Garcia, head brewer and partner at Dynasty Brewing, has been in the brewing business for 25 years, and he said that “we’re a small operation, and we want to stay that way.

We’re making unique ales and lagers, mostly for in-house consumption and some distribution.” He spoke highly of his Dynasty Brewing and his business partners, enjoying every second as they keep moving and trying new things. “We have rotating beers, some experimental things, so it’s just a lot of fun,” Garcia said. The centerpiece of Dynasty Brewing — the bar — is eye-catching in itself and was designed by the company. It was built using repurposed wood from partner Travis’s grandparent’s farm in West Virginia. The house and barn were falling apart, but Dynasty Brewing saw this as an

opportunity to build a bar, some décor and tables for their tasting room. It was no small feat to find the right location for Dynasty Brewing, but Garcia said St. John’s Ashburn Crossing business community was just the kind of place they were looking for: busy, growing and easy to access. “It took a little bit of time, but we found this,” he said, “We are lucky to be leasing with St. John Properties. The location and the quality of the building is fantastic.” St. John Properties was especially helpful in the interior construction portion of their development. Dynasty Brewing

collaborated with the St. John team to design a space to fit their needs, and St. John handled the buildout. Garcia has worked with St. John before, so he knew that they would treat them right. “They have a good team in general, I think that’s what sets them apart,” said Garcia. “They take pride in maintaining the business. They’re orderly.” Garcia is grateful that St. John also gives them the leeway that is needed for a brewery. “We need a little bit of space sometimes. They allow for that,” Garcia continued. “We occasionally have events and parties. They can be flexible, but, at the same time, they maintain a good business partner.”
