In Waterford, just a short trek outside of Purcellville, Corcoran Vineyards has a new neighbor: Corcoran Brewing Company. The brewery is the passion of Jim Corcoran, whose wife, Lori, runs the vineyard. The brewery opened in 2011 and really got into the swing of things in 2012, with beer tastings (six two-ounce pours for $7) and pints. Astrid Riecken/For The Washington Post
