Upcoming Events

Winter Warmer + Court End Christmas

Friday, December 7, 3-10pm, Ardent Craft Ales
Sunday, December 9, 12-5pm, Court End Christmas @ The Valentine

’Tis the season… for holiday beer! We’ve got a special pilot batch of Winter Warmer with mulling spices coming to the taproom on Friday and The Valentine on Sunday.

Winter Warmer was brewed with nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and allspice alongside honey malt and brown sugar. The malty residual sweetness is balanced by the addition of East Kent Golding, the quintessential English hop. Winter Warmer tastes like Christmas in a glass!

7.5% ABV
31 IBU
Draft only

Winter Warmer is being released in the taproom on Friday, December 7, with representatives from The Valentine onsite to answer all your questions about Richmond’s 400-year history.

Then from 12-5 on Sunday, December 9, join Danny as he pours Winter Warmer during Court End Christmas at The Valentine, featuring children’s activities, carriage rides, performances, refreshments, gift shops, music and tours, as well as free admission to a number of downtown historic sites. 1015 East Clay Street

Happy Arepas will be the food truck in the beer garden on Friday!

The Beers


The Beers


Now on Tap

That’s Your Thing

That’s Your Thing is an American rice lager brewed with fresh lemon zest and Jasmine and Citron Green tea locally sourced from Rostov's Coffee & Tea. This is a clean, crisp American lager featuring pleasant tea notes, a light body, and minimal bitterness. Enjoy this easy drinker to mix it up after all those big heavy winter stouts.

Brewed in collaboration with Aslin Beer Co right here in RVA!

4.4% ABV • 13 IBU

barrel aged robust porter

We got our hands on a Merlot barrel that Reservoir Distillery aged their whiskey in and filled it up with porter!

Barrel Aged Robust Porter is a dark, full-bodied porter with a chocolatey aroma. This complex beer has absorbed a rounded red wine character from the barrel, balanced by the roasted malt base.

If You please

Our friends from Off Color Brewing came all the way from Chicago to RVA to brew a collaboration beer with us right here at Ardent!

Infused with juniper berries and peppercorns, If You Please is a cloudy, unfiltered petite saison with a peppery, lightly funky character derived from a Lithuanian farmhouse ale yeast strain. This is a bright, dry, effervescent crusher, so enjoy a couple pints, If You Please.

Hazy IPA

Our freshest Hazy IPA was double dry hopped with Galaxy hops, one of our favorites.

This is a big, juicy IPA with tons of fruity character in both aroma and flavor. Pours a cloudy golden color, along with low bitterness and soft mouthfeel you’ve come to expect from Ardent’s Hazy IPA.

honey ginger

Honey Ginger is a deep gold-colored ale, with medium/high carbonation that enhances the fresh ginger aroma. The malt backbone supports the sweetness of the locally sourced honey and the spiciness of the ginger.

A strong yet refreshing and deceptively smooth spiced ale.
