Anniversary beer


Our fourth anniversary beer is Sour Black Saison with Cherries!

This American farmhouse ale was pitched with our house culture, aged in whiskey barrels and re-fermented on tart cherries. Featuring a cherry aroma and chocolatey flavors, this is a restrained sour ale with moderate tartness. Minimal sweetness, low bitterness, and high effervescence make this is a sour beer you can enjoy all day!

5.9% ABV • 7 IBU

The beer schedule is finalized, plan your Saturday accordingly! We’ll be tapping a new batch of Fourth Anniversary Block Party guest beers every hour to spread them across the afternoon. Our full lineup of Ardent beers, as well as cider, mead, and prosecco, will be available all day.

The Beers


The Beers


Now on Tap

Ardent Pilsner

Ardent Pilsner is a golden straw, clear pilsner with classic lager aroma that is clean and bready, with light grassiness from 100% Hallertauer mittelfrüh noble hops. Medium body and high carbonation accentuate the soft bitterness, malty sweetness and mild fruitiness. Ardent Pilsner is a crisp, refreshing German-style pils that finishes dry and clean with a creamy, long-lasting head that leaves rich lacing.

Available on draft, and, for the first time, in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans!
 

IPA ❌

IPA X is double dry hopped with Citra and Mosaic hops, an exciting combination that provides big citrus and tropical fruit notes in both aroma and flavor. This juicy beer pours a cloudy, deep golden color, with super low bitterness and a silky soft mouthfeel.

Blackberry gose

Blackberry Gose is a tart, effervescent wheat beer that was refermented on blackberry and features salt and coriander. The blackberry balances both tangy and sweet notes that complement the gose's natural acidity. Blackberry Gose pours a beautiful ruby red color.

pink boots ipa

Brewed with a blend of Simcoe, Mosaic, Citra and Loral hops, Pink Boots is a sessionable, hazy IPA with fruity citrus aroma and flavor. Low bitterness and alcohol content complement the soft mouthfeel for an easy-drinking New England-style IPA.

Erin crafted this beer to benefit the Pink Boots Society, which aims to assist, inspire, and encourage women beer professionals through education.

schwarzbier

Schwarzbier is a sessionable dark German lager with a slightly chocolaty, roasted aroma. Medium bodied, with a crisp, clean mouthfeel. Subtle malt flavors are balanced by moderate hop bitterness, followed by a pleasantly roasty finish. Winner of the gold medal in the Darker European Beer category at the 2016 Virginia Craft Beer Cup.
