Welcome to Ardent Craft Ales


Brewing Spring 2014 in Richmond, Virginia

15 Gallons to 15 Barrels

Ardent is committed to brewing innovative beers and sharing them with our community. We began as a homebrewing co-op in a Richmond garage and sought to educate ourselves on historic brewing methods and beer styles, as well as to make beers that were distinctly our own. Today, we continue in this tradition and aim to produce and celebrate exceptional beer.

We look forward to pouring beers in our taproom and beer garden and on draft around Richmond in late Spring 2014.

The Beers


Grain to Glass

We will initially be pouring three core beers and a variety of seasonal and experimental brews. Check back often for the current tap offerings.

 
 

Saison

Refreshing and spicy, our Saison is effervescent and dry, with an edge of bitterness that balances the fruitiness of the aroma.

IPA

Our IPA has a backbone of caramel malt and hoppy bitterness and is an ongoing exploration in hop flavors. Aromas will rotate from citrusy and piney to floral and grassy as we test new hop varietals.

Virginia Common

Brewed in the pre-Prohibition style, this light-bodied, hybrid ale-lager pays tribute to the James River Steam Brewery which operated at Rockett's Landing in the 1870s.
