Touring Leesburg's Vanish Brewery
ISM had the chance to tour one of Northern Virginia's local breweries just north of Leesburg. Members took in the beautiful Loudon County scenery while learning about the operation's supply chain and the state's burgeoning brewing industry. Most importantly we had the chance to sample several of Vanish's excellent beverage offerings!
