We're so excited to bring Commonwealth Man Pilsner to our taproom! This recipe was developed between Brett from Idle Hands Craft Ales and Steve from Ardent Craft Ales, and originally brewed at Idle Hands in Massachusetts last year. When Brett visited RVA in December, he dropped in to help brew a batch here!

Commonwealth Man is a classic American lager, brewed with malted corn from Valley Malt in Massachusetts and Idaho 7 hops. This collaboration beer is an easy-drinking pilsner that finishes clean at 4.9% ABV. #neverstoplagering

Plus, we're releasing a second beer on the same day, an old favorite! Berliner Weisse is pale straw colored, cloudy, and effervescent, with a sour aroma that includes a lemony tartness. Light body and high carbonation complement the clean sour flavor with notes of lemon and citrus, and the low alcohol content allows a hint of the malt profile to shine through.

Go Go Vegan Go will be in the beer garden cooking for this release, and we’ll be open 4-9. Cheers!

The Beers


The Beers


Now on Tap: Standard Bitter

Feeling bitter this Valentine’s Day? We’ve got just the beer for you! Our Standard Bitter is an ultra drinkable beer clocking in at only 3.7% ABV.

Mild malt aroma, pale yellow color, and light carbonation are hallmarks of this classic British style. First Gold hops feature subtle notes of tangerine and orange marmalade, providing a moderate bitterness that is restrained to preserve a balanced, palatable ale.
 

earl grey brown ale

Earl Grey Brown Ale starts with classic brown color and white, frothy head. The rich tea and citrus aromatics give way to easy-drinking mouthfeel and flavors of black tea and bergamot on top of a classic, malt-forward English brown ale. A light-bodied, mild brown ale with hints of Earl Grey tea.

honey ginger

Our 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.

IPA Batch #33

IPA Batch #33 was heavily dry hopped with Simcoe and Idaho 7 hops, blending characteristics of different IPA styles ranging from West Coast IPAs to New England juice bombs. The Simcoe hops introduce some old school pine resin qualities, while the Idaho 7 hops provide juicier tropical fruit notes. Both hops together result in a balanced IPA that pours clear with moderate bitterness.

hazy ipa (El Dorado & Azacca)

This batch of Hazy IPA was brewed with Citra & Mosaic hops, then triple dry hopped with El Dorado & Azacca hops for a huge citrus aroma and fruity hop flavor. Super low bitterness and a soft, creamy mouthfeel round out this smooth-drinking beer.
