Upcoming Events

Winter Warmer release

Thursday, December 20, 4-6 p.m.

’Tis the season… for holiday beer!

Winter Warmer, brewed as a special pilot batch with mulling spices, was conceived as a collaboration with the Valentine. Due to inclement weather, we had to cancel our Court End Christmas appearance, so now we're hosting a special tasting event right here at Ardent!

The Valentine is Richmond’s oldest museum, dedicated to collecting, preserving and interpreting Richmond stories, and they'll be joining us for this small batch taproom release. Plus, proceeds generated from Winter Warmer sales will be donated to support the Valentine's operations!

Winter Warmer was brewed with nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and allspice alongside honey malt and brown sugar. The malty residual sweetness is balanced by the addition of East Kent Golding, the quintessential English hop. Winter Warmer tastes like Christmas in a glass!

7.5% ABV
31 IBU
Draft only

Come hungry, because Continental Divide will be serving up fresh tacos in the beer garden all night long!

The Beers

Now on Tap

Mosaic DIPA

We tried out a brand new IPA recipe, and everybody in the brewery is super excited for the results!

This Double IPA was brewed and dry hopped with 100% Mosaic hops, featuring a big tropical aroma, fruit-forward, juicy flavor, and minimal bitterness. Mosaic DIPA pours a bright golden color, and every sip is a velvety soft treat.

8% ABV • 7 IBU

that’s your thing

Brewed in collaboration with Aslin Beer Co right here in RVA! 

That’s Your Thing is an American rice lager brewed with fresh lemon zest and Jasmine and Citron Green tea locally sourced from Rostov's Coffee & Tea. This is a clean, crisp American lager featuring pleasant tea notes, a light body, and minimal bitterness. Enjoy this easy drinker to mix it up after all those big heavy winter stouts.

If You please

Our friends from Off Color Brewing came all the way from Chicago to RVA to brew a collaboration beer with us right here at Ardent!

Infused with juniper berries and peppercorns, If You Please is a cloudy, unfiltered petite saison with a peppery, lightly funky character derived from a Lithuanian farmhouse ale yeast strain. This is a bright, dry, effervescent crusher, so enjoy a couple pints, If You Please.

barrel aged barleywine

We kicked our barleywine up a notch by aging it in bourbon barrels for 12 months!

Barrel Aged Barleywine is a malty, full-bodied barleywine that pours a dark brown color. This big, boozy beer balances notes of vanilla and oak aromas with a moderate alcohol heat and rich, complex flavor.

honey ginger

Honey Ginger is a deep gold-colored ale, with medium/high carbonation that enhances the fresh ginger aroma. The malt backbone supports the sweetness of the locally sourced honey and the spiciness of the ginger.

A strong yet refreshing and deceptively smooth spiced ale.
