Upcoming Events

Double Dry Hopped IPA X release

Thursday, September 19, 4-10pm

We heard you, RVA, so we're bringing it back! Double Dry Hopped IPA X returns in cans and on draft to the taproom this Thursday.

This special edition IPA X is double dry hopped with TWICE the standard amount of Citra and Mosaic hops, our favorite combination that provides huge citrus and tropical fruit notes in both aroma and flavor. Double Dry Hopped IPA X is a juicy beer that pours a cloudy, deep golden color, with super low bitterness and a silky soft mouthfeel.

7.1% ABV • 10 IBU
Draft + 4 x 16 oz cans

The Return of the Mac will be the food truck in the beer garden for this release!


Old Molasses Ale

Friday, September 20, 3-10pm

Come try Old Molasses Ale, Danny's historical collaboration with John Marshall House, and learn about their exciting upcoming events!

Old Molasses Ale was based on a recipe from John Marshall’s cousin, Mary Randolph, that she brewed in the late 1700s and featured a late addition of molasses in the boil. Old Molasses Ale is an easy-drinking brown ale with low bitterness that features notes of molasses in both aroma and flavor.

4.6% ABV • 16 IBU
Draft only

Since Old Molasses Ale is a limited pilot batch, we only have a single keg available, so don't miss out before it's gone! No crowler/growler fills permitted.

Taco Club will be the food truck in the beer garden for this historical collaboration release.

Barrel aged
Honey ginger

This batch was aged in bourbon barrels for more than a year, layering bourbon and vanilla notes on top of honey sweetness and ginger spice. This big beer is an amped up version of our seasonal Honey Ginger that only comes out once a year, so get yours before it’s gone!

festbier

Our Festbier is a traditional German lager with a malty backbone and light hoppiness. This full-bodied, amber-colored beer features a bready aroma and slight malty sweetness in the classic Marzen style, served in 1/2 liter mugs. Prost!

summit DIPA

Summit DIPA is the first beer Ardent has brewed with Hornindal Kveik, a Norwegian Ale yeast that promotes tropical fruit flavors and a clean finish. This hazy DIPA was triple dry hopped, primarily with El Dorado and rounded out with Citra and Amarillo, and is bursting with juicy stone fruit and citrus flavors.

mixed berry gose

Brewed with raspberry, blackberry, boysenberry, and black currant, this gose pours a distinctive purple color with a sweet, jammy flavor to balance the tart acidity of the style. Mixed Berry Gose is a refreshing summer treat you won’t want to miss!
