Ardent Craft Ales began as a co-operative in a Richmond, Virginia garage, a space in which we sought to create innovative beers, as well as to introduce others to historic brewing methods and beer styles. As a production brewery, our mission remains the same: to produce and celebrate exceptional and ambitious beers with the ever-growing craft beer community.

The Beers


Now On Tap: Berliner Braunbier

We're excited to now have a Berliner Braunbier on tap and available around Richmond. This beer is our take on an all-but-extinct, pre-World War II Northern German sour beer. The Braunbier’s aroma has notes of stone fruit balanced by the slightly tart but still toasty malt backbone. Low in bitterness and light in body, it is effervescent with a clean finish. A low alcohol and mildly tart brown table beer.
