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


Winter Beer: Dark Rye Stout Now On Tap

Winter is here and so is our beer. We recently introduced Ardent's Dark Rye, a full-bodied American imperial stout that beer privileges the spiciness of the rye over the roasted quality in both aroma and flavor, and has a dry chocolatey finish.

 
 

Virginia Common

A sessionable ale-lager hybrid that will satisfy almost any beer drinker.

IPA

An American IPA that privileges hop flavor and aroma over bitterness.

Saison

A yeast-derived refreshing, spicy ale.

Sweet Potato & Sage Autumn Ale

Farmhouse-style saison with malt
backbone and subtle hop presence.

A Recap of December 9th History On Tap Event

What a night. No one said it better than Virginia Historical Society President Paul Levengood: "we reached back in time." Ardent's collaboration with VHS first began several months ago and culminated Tuesday, December 9 with an evening to taste and learn about one very old beer that was written down by Jane, a young girl who lived on a local farm in the 18th century. If Jane only knew how her family's beer recipe would be revived and celebrated right here in 2014.
