Through it’s brewpub operations, Mad Fox will meet the demand of a well-educated and thirsty clientele hungry for great craftbrew and a comfortable place to enjoy it. Mad Fox’s founders are Bill Madden and Rick Garvin.

Bill Madden’s fans have been demanding that he open his own brewpub since he first moved to Northern Virginia after completing the Master Brewers Program at UC Davis in 1995. Since then, Bill has been responsible for opening and operating 7 brewpub locations in Northern Virginia, District of Columbia and Maryland while at Capitol City Brewing Company, Founders Restaurant and Brewing Company and Vintage 50 Restaurant and Brew Lounge. At AC Beverage, Bill built and serviced beer systems at the highest volume brewpubs and restaurants in the Washington, DC region. He is sought after as the organizer of large successful beer festivals.

Bill Madden’s locally brewed and served beers have received national acclaim through his participation in the Brewers Associations’ Great American Beer Festival (GABF) and the Chicago Real Ale Festival. The GABF is the largest commercial beer competition with 495 breweries entering 3,308 beers in 78 categories in 2009. The Chicago Real Ale Festival is the pre-eminent competition in the USA featuring true British-style Real Ale. His achievements are especially notable as they span the lightest and subtlest beer styles as well as the biggest most robust and full-flavored beer styles, an unusual accomplishment that speaks to his finesse as a brewer.

  • 2004 – GABF Silver – Margaret’s Scotch Ale
