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


Just Released: Earl Grey Brown & Belgian Brown

We're excited to have two new beers on tap, one which marks our very first collaboration. First, the Earl Grey Brown Ale, made with Andy Hannas and Hunter Smith of Champion Brewing Company, is a Northern English Brown ale with a slightly nutty aroma sustained by a toasty malt backbone. At the other end of the spectrum is a new Belgian Brown, a traditional deep brown ale offering chocolate and caramel malt which temper its yeast-derived fruity and spicy aromas.

 
 

DARK RYE

A full-bodied American imperial stout

IPA

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

Saison

A yeast-derived refreshing, spicy ale.

VIRGINIA COMMON

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

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.
