It's coming. RVA Beer Week is great reason to celebrate locally made beer, and to be sure, this is a year Richmond should be proud of. No one spelled it out better than Lee Graves in his article in this week's Richmond Times-Dispatch where he pointed out all the great new local beer and events. After being happy spectators for many years, we're excited to now be part of #rvacraftbeer week. Let the hashtagging begin.
This year, we'll be hosting a few of our own celebrations. Beginning Wednesday, November 5 at 4 p.m., we'll raise a glass one last time to our summer seasonal, the Honey Ginger, who some could argue has already overstayed its season. Tonight will mark the Honey Ginger's last stand until next summer, and for the occasion, we'll open up pins of different versions including one spiked with extra ginger and others aged in different whiskey barrels. Free to join this bittersweet farewell.
Then, on Saturday, November 8 starting at Noon sharp, it's all IPA, all day. We've accumulated quite a collection of our different IPA batches and squirreled a few away for just this reason. We'll pour no less than five different kinds of IPA until 10 p.m. (or until we run out) including our versions brewed with Mosaic & Citra, Belma, Crosby Hops Farm, and Falconer's Flight hops. This event is also free with tasters and full pours available all day.
