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.

1.16.16 // Earl Grey Brown Ale Release

Come experience the fruits of a wonderful collaboration! Potter's Cider, Champion Brewing, and Ardent Craft Ales have united to bring back the Earl Grey Brown Ale: The Earl Grey Brown is a Northern English Brown ale. Its slightly nutty aroma is sustained by a toasty malt backbone. Light in body , it finishes dry, and is laced with hints of bergamot.

The Beers


Winter Seasonal: Dark Rye Imperial Stout

The Dark Rye is an American imperial stout, black in color with a long-lasting tan head. The spiciness of the rye is privileged over the roasted quality in both aroma and flavor. The beer is full-bodied, with a dry chocolaty finish

 
 

RYe Kolsch

Uses rye malt instead of wheat for this German pilsner-style ale. The malt, balanced with noble hops, adds a delicate spiciness and slight fruit note to this light alternative for the winter. 

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.
