    Belly Love Brewing coming to Purcellville

    The popularity of craft brewing is exploding in Purcellville, and Tolga Baki and his wife Katie have signed a lease to open Belly Love Brewing Company at 725 E. Main St.

    Baki said he has been home brewing for about 12 years and decided to “take the leap” and open an “interesting, new business.”

    “I was looking for something new and wanted to do something I love,” Baki said.

    Baki is in the early architectural design stages of planning for Belly Love and hopes to open in October.

    Baki’s brews will include seven beers on tap: Leroy-American Pale Ale, My Bitter X-IPA, Munich Helles Lager and a Belgian golden strong, yet to be named.

    “The rest are being worked out but will consist of one dark beer, most likely an Oatmeal Stout, a seasonal ale and one experimental beer,” Baki said.

    The tap room will have a casual atmosphere, where customers can enjoy pints or growlers to go. There will be catered food, Baki said, “depending on what the crowds will support.”

    Baki chose the location for Belly Love in Purcellville because it's a small community where the businesses work together, he said.

    “Jim Corcoran has been a huge help in our process,” adding that the other local businesses have also been supportive.

    The couple is currently refining recipes, hosting private tastings and sharing their brews with the members of a local home brew club. The Bakis have lived in Purcellville for four years and have two children, Mitchell and Natalie.
