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


Summer Seasonal: Lawnmower Golden Ale

This American Ale, that we are calling our Lawnmower beer, is a light golden ale perfect for summer and warmer temperatures. With a light hop addition and a hint of orange zest in the finish, it is a dry easy finishing beer at 4.9% ABV.

 
 

Session i.p.l.

Our Session I.P.L. is a dry-hopped India pale lager with an aromatic malt backbone and slight herbal bitterness. With tropical aromas and flavors, this beer finishes clean and crisp.

ROTATIONAL IPA

Our IPA uses a standard malt-backboned recipe, but as we rotate our hop varietals, the aroma may range from citrusy and piney to flowery and grassy.

SAISON

Our saison is a pale gold-colored, medium-bodied farmhouse-style ale. It is effervescent and dry, with an edge of bitterness that balances the fruitiness of the aroma.

VIRGINIA COMMON

A sessionable ale-lager hybrid perfect for the warming weather.
