Leesburg, Va. (September 3, 2014) – L4 Capital Partners, the developer of Courthouse Square in downtown Leesburg, today announced that Philadelphia-area based Victory Brewing Company® has signed a lease to open a brewpub, Victory at Courthouse Square, in its new mixed-use development upon delivery in early 2016.
The downtown Leesburg location will feature a 300-seat restaurant, upper-level terraces for outdoor dining overlooking the historic courthouse lawn, and an extensive chef-inspired menu highlighting many of the company’s signature dishes. The space will also be equipped with a full-service brew house to keep the brewery’s world-class ales and lagers flowing, including new Leesburg-specific recipes, and allow for an interactive customer experience by creating customized brews for special events.
Victory at Courthouse Square will be Victory Brewing Company’s first location outside Pennsylvania, and its fourth brewpub overall. The restaurant will occupy up to 13,400 square feet on three floors of the former Loudoun Times-Mirror building, which L4 Capital Partners is renovating from top to bottom and enhancing with two new upper stories. Victory will be a key tenant within the project which is slated to break ground later this year, delivering 90,000 square feet of office space, 10,000 square feet of additional retail and 336 garage parking spaces into the heart of downtown Leesburg.
“Our primary goal was to find a restaurant that served great food at a reasonable price, while also carrying on the legacy of this historic building and the community it served for so many years,” said L4’s partner and co-founder, Blair White. “What we got with Victory is so much more. After touring their facilities in Downingtown and Parkesburg, our eyes were opened to what a first class, family-oriented operation they’ve built there. We truly believe Victory is the perfect match for the Leesburg community, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome them to town.”
“Victory’s arrival in Leesburg strengthens our position as a prominent destination for craft beer and culinary tourism in the state of Virginia”, said Marantha Edwards, Leesburg’s Economic Development Director. “Our recent zoning ordinance changes along with the incredible growth of this industry has changed the vibe downtown. This is truly a game-changer for Leesburg.”
