Richmond, Virginia Brewery Guide

The Old Dominion’s capital city is a destination for craft-beer lovers seeking quality, quantity and variety

Smack dab in the heart of Virginia lies a vivid brewing scene that’s among the East Coast’s finest and draws visitors from across the Old Dominion as well as neighboring states and the District of Columbia. But it wasn’t always that way in Richmond. Just over a decade ago, the city was home to only one brewery, but thanks to 2012 legislation allowing breweries to sell beer at their breweries, an ale-obsessed, boundary-pushing restauranteur and pioneers who jumped to the pro ranks from the James River Homebrewers club, RVA now boasts nearly 30 brewery-owned venues.

Spend a day brewery-hopping in suds-saturated Scott’s Addition or venture to the wealth of beermaking operations surrounding the city center on all sides. No matter what, you’re sure to find something to please your palate, not to mention a really good time. And all that galivanting can earn tourists a little something extra thanks to Visit Richmond, which offers a digital or printable brewery map visitors can have stamped at local tasting rooms then turn in to claim “beer swag”. But for now, allow our map to be your guide as we break down Richmond’s impressive brewery landscape.


The Veil Brewing
1301 Roseneath Rd (Scott’s Addition Brewery) | 4910 Forest Hill Ave (Forest Hill) | 2256 Dabney Rd (Funkhaüst Café)

One of the nation’s “it” breweries is the first stop for most beer geeks visiting Scott’s Addition. The Veil’s hype is justified in its past—Head Brewer Matt Tarpey cut his teeth at The Alchemist, Hill Farmstead and Cantillon—and its present. That is to say, the beers, which include scads of New England-style IPAs (NEIPAs), fruited smoothie-style ales, pastry stouts, wild ales and “Mixed Fermies” (oak-aged mixed-fermentation beers), are outstanding and worth waiting in line for. It’s a good thing. A lengthy queue is the norm here. Fortunately, a quadruple-screen beer-board provides plenty of useful reading material, or if one prefers, they can pass the time taking in the awe-inspiring collection of animal taxidermy on the walls. Either way, it will all be worth the wait.

If you don’t get the hazy-slash-juicy-IPA thing, you will after sampling the quadruple dry-hopped Master Shredder. Densely opaque yet extremely drinkable, its Mosaic-coaxed tropical juiciness is balanced by citrus-pith bitterness. More viscous but packed with Valencia orange succulence is a Citra-hopped double IPA (DIPA) dubbed Crucial Taunt. Stouts are boozy, lengthily aged in oak and treated with an array of desserty adjuncts. Smoothies and sour IPAs are similarly decadent, darn near irresistible and wildly popular. Case in point, a tropically hopped, mixed-berry sour DIPA called The Weapon. But there’s also plenty for purists who will appreciate the clean, to-style composition of The Veil’s lagers, session-strength Belgian ales and a piney, easy-drinking American pale ale called Bend. Even with all that, make sure to sample the funky, wild and spontaneous offerings which set this operation apart and show off some of Tarpey’s specialized skillsets.

Standout Suds: The Weapon, Sour Double IPA with Raspberry, Blueberry & Lactose

Pro Tip: Venture beyond Scott’s Addition for more Mixed Fermies at The Veil’s Funkhaüst Café or beer and Mexican food at its newest location ins Forest Hill.

Väsen Brewing
3331 W Moore St

Channling its founders’ familial Scandinavian roots and shared passions for farmhouse ales, environmental preservation and adventure, Väsen’s tasting room brings elements of the outdoors indoors with stone, greenery and a forest mural. That stylish sampling space gives way to an elevated streetside patio with multiple seating areas for small-party convos. That space is regularly packed, especially during Adventure Club (bike-riding, rock-climbing, trail-hiking) and community-based fundraising events. In the brewhouse, high-efficiency equipment, recyclable materials and mechanisms for recapturing wastewater are as vital to the 1% for the Planet operation as its everchanging assortment of beers both modern and rustic.

Rather than lean on a flagship, Väsen offers a cast of rotating IPAs fermented with a Norweigan Kviek yeast strain, a highlight of which is Norse DIPA, an orange-peach Screwdriver of a beer hopped with Citra, Mosaic and Amarillo. On the more traditional side, Italian-style pilsner Richmond is for Lägers leads with lemon-zest hop expression, the house hefeweizen is big on banana in the nose and on the finish, and a side-pull softens the herbal Czech and German hop notes in Rada Pils. But if Virginia is for lovers, Väsen is for lovers of saisons. Several are typically on tap, from grassy varieties like Styrian Saison, to Belgo-centric citrus-and-bubble-gum numbers like Ardennes, and tart, buggy, barnyardy small-batch one-offs and blends made possible by a pair of oak fouders that are visible from the tasting room.

Standout Suds: Baby Fox #1 Ardennes Saison, Belgian-style Farmhouse Ale with Motueka Hops

Pro Tip: Väsen devotes certain months to certain styles. June is saison month, August is for goses and November is all about stouts.

Ardent Craft Ales
3200 W Leigh St

What began as a brewing co-op in the then far-less-fashionable but industrial-zoned Scott’s Addition evolved into Ardent, a singular operation well respected among RVA brewers and beer fans for presenting consistent quality across a wide range of styles. Adding to the appeal of those ales and lagers is a spacious, low-key outdoor patio that’s perfect for conversation, and thanks to a kitchen serving charcuterie and cheese boards, beer-and-food connoisseurship. An assortment of toasts, flatbreads, salads and sandwiches are also available, as is Texas-style BBQ worth writing home about from next-door neighbor, ZZQ (if you get there when they open…they sell out of ‘cue quick).

Ardent’s tap list reads like that of a homebrewer enthusiastically jumping between historic brewing cultures. Bottom-fermented beers range from a GABF bronze-winning German-style pilsner to a Schwarzbier and an impressively clean, mostly savory Mexican-style lager called Atlantico. The IPA category is thoroughly explored but, of them all, the Citra- and Mosaic-infused IPA X shines brightest with orange and passionfruit notes, pithy bitterness and a body that’s more unfiltered than “hazy”. Saisons are an Ardent bailiwick, with a year-round textbook model serving as the trunk for a farmhouse family tree sprouting one-offs (sweet potato and sage, barrel-aged with Saugnon Blanc grapes). And order the imperial milk stout, Stronger Than Hate. On top of its luscious chocolate, caramel and blueberry notes, proceeds from sale of the beer benefit the Urban League of Greater Richmond Young Professionals Initiative.

Standout Suds: IPA X, New England-style IPA

Pro Tip: The second week of June, Ardent shuts down its street for an anniversary block party with live music and guest beers.

Bingo Beer Co.
2900 W Broad St

Aiming to offer quality beer with an array of activities and entertainment, RVA restaurateur Jay Bayer (Saison) installed this haven for fun-seekers in an abandoned bingo hall on the south edge of Scott’s Addition. Today, an old-school bingo board stands sentinel over a bank of vintage pinball machines in an arcade packed with video games (Pac-Man Battle Royale, anyone?), pool tables, shuffleboard, Skee-Ball, air hockey and Pop-A-Shot. An outdoor biergarten and 20-tap indoor bar provide a break from the action along with house-brewed beers ranging from crushable lagers to hazies and the occasional oddity.

A graduate of the Siebel Institute, Bayer conspires with Head Brewer Ken Rayher (Hardywood Park, Champion Brewing) on a number of sessionable brews, from a lightly hopped namesake lager to a pair of pilsners, Bavarian (Rail Pass) and Bohemian (Pivo), both of which are well-balanced with brilliant backend bite. Fruited goses and assorted lagers abound, including an ultra-clean rice lager fittingly named Dry Crispy, and Costa Chica, a caramely Mexican-style amber. Those share room with occasional Belgian ales like Patio Vibes, a grassy grisette hopped with Huell Melon and Mandarina Bavaria, and rare higher-octane or barrel-aged offerings. Hoppy styles are also represented, and the best of that class goes to the orange-pineapple mimosa-like Free Space NEIPA. Pair the above with guilty pleasures from the on-site kitchen and a heaping side of playtime.

Standout Suds: Free Space, New England-style IPA

Pro Tip: Bingo Beer is an all-ages spot until dark, when the lights go down and DJs bring the late-night vibe.

Isley Brewing
1715 Summit Ave

The first brewery to have set up shop in Scott’s Addition back in 2013, its tasting room has an old-school feel, as does the tap-list, where the latest innovations come in the form of fruited kettle-sours and adjunct-laced stouts.

Starr Hill Beer Hall & Rooftop
3406 W Leigh St

Virginia’s second-oldest craft brewery operates six locations statewide, including this two-story brewpub with a rooftop bar that’s shaded by red sails and ideal for watching thirsty wanderers meander about Scott’s Addition below.

Three Notch’d Brewing
2930 W Broad St

New- and Old-Word beers, including “RVA exclusives”, are served with hearty apps and pizzas ranging from traditional, vegan and outlandish (chili-cheese, carnitas) at this offshoot of a nine-year-old Charlottesville brewery.


Hardywood Park Craft Brewery
2410 Ownby Ln (RVA Brewpub) | 820 Sanctuary Trail Dr (West Creek Brewery)

A love of beer sparked when two longtime friends first tasted homebrewed ales on an Australian sheep farm led them to enter the brew-distribution business. Once well versed in the industry, they went a step further, opening their own brewery. In doing so, they took a chance on RVA despite the city having just one brewery to its name, installing Hardywood Park (named for that pivotal sheep farm) in a remote neighborhood north of downtown. Their gamble paid off. Eleven years later, Hardywood Park’s OG location has grown into an anchor business for a burgeoning community, complete with a pizza kitchen, inviting front patio outfitted with shaded tables and a stage, and gargantuan indoor event space. That spot paved the way for the company’s current headquarters, which includes a tasting room sharing its predecessor’s homey feel plus acres of green al-fresco imbibing space dotted with rentable gazebos.

Hardywood Park made a winter-spiced splash in its first year in business with the release of its now-famed Gingerbread Stout. That beer and its variants remain seasonal must-haves to this day. On the year-round front, the brewery leads with Singel, a dry, lightly spicy Belgian blonde that makes for a delicious everyday drinker, as does the lemon-lime, Cascade-and-Noble-hopped Richmond Lager. Newer additions include Tropication, a hazy IPA with essence of pineapple and apricot, a line of Suncrush fruited sparkling ales, and the official beer of Virginia Tech, Fightin’ Hokies Ale. Additional specialties spring from a robust barrel-aging program and the Virginia Roots series of beers brewed with locally sourced ingredients.

Standout Suds: Singel, Belgian-style Blonde Ale

Pro Tip: Hardywood Park also brews cider and recently launched a full-fledged cocktail program at its original location.

Castleburg Brewery & Taproom
1626 Ownby Ln

Go medieval on a beer menu stocked with styles crafted in keeping with the Reinheitsgebot—some of which are gluten-free—in wood-and-stone environs that will be a sight for the sore eyes of wayward industrial-suite journeyers.

Main Line Brewery
1603 Ownby Ln

Mostly sessionable beers and an array of hard seltzers are fuel for fun times spent in a backyard area equipped with a stage and a variety of family-friendly lawn games at this brewery named for the Richmond Railway it borders.


Triple Crossing Brewing
113 S Foushee St (Downtown Brewery) | 5203 Hatcher St (Fulton Brewery)

When polled about their favorite local beermakers, not a single RVA brewer fails to mention this eight-year-old stalwart. Helmed by a pair of passionate ex-homebrewers, Triple Crossing opened in a small, red-brick building just west of the City Center. Reception to its quality beers was such that a mere two years later the business was able to expand, erecting a much-larger production facility with a 30,000-square-foot indoor-outdoor tasting room and a kitchen serving exotic pizzas (spinach-artichoke, Nashville hot chicken, honey-drizzled pepperoni) with wings, pretzels and beer-friendly starters. Fittingly, Triple Crossing has further expanded to include three locations after opening a brewpub in a mixed-use development in Midlothian, a half-hour west of Richmond proper.

Triple Crossing gets high marks for its hoppy stock, and rightfully so. It was the first to bring A-level haze game to RVA with flagship NEIPA Falcon Smash (not to be confused with a single-malt-and-single-hop beer) and its orange-rind, grapefruit juice composition, followed by its session spin-off, Baby Falcon, with pronounced notes of overripe peach and tangerine flesh. Peach is also at the forefront of Last Broadcast, a DIPA hopped with Galaxy, Citra, Mosaic and Nelson. As alluring as Triple Crossing’s hop game is, don’t sleep on sours and low-ABV Old World beers, including on-the-mark house versions of pilsner and kölsch, as well as a biscuity UK-style bitter with light chestnut notes called Under the Thames.

Standout Suds: Baby Falcon, Session New England-style IPA

Pro Tip: The hand-made pizzas from Triple Crossing’s Fulton kitchen are also available at the downtown taproom.

Stone Brewing – RVA
4300 Williamsburg Ave

Richmond’s budding beer scene was so promising that when one of the largest craft-brewing companies in America was looking to open an East Coast brewery, with dozens of locales from the Midwest to the Atlantic enthusiastically vying to provide real estate, Stone bullishly selected “The Capital of the South”. A pair of bridges, one traversing the Fulton stretch of Gillie Creek, lead visitors to the tasting room at the San Diego-based interest’s 200,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility. That public-facing indoor-outdoor space is outfitted in Stone’s well-established, architectural award-winning motif, combining wrought metal, wood, brick and, aptly, stone, to create a stronghold for beer appreciation as well as a wide variety of happenings, including anniversary fetes, bi-monthly makers markets and a host of events held in support of the LGBTQ+ community.

On the beer front, more than 20 taps are stocked with core offerings as well as archived brews and small-batch creations culled from Stone’s various R&D breweries. Among those are GABF winners like deep, dark foreign export stout Cimmerian Portal and oxymoronic black Belgian-style white ale, Witty Moron. A 10-barrel pilot system is being shipped cross-country so the RVA brew crew will be able to produce its very own house specialties. Stone’s line of Buenavida hard seltzers are also available, and pair particularly well with SoCal-inspired items from a recently added Live Buena Food Truck, including spicy “crunchover” tacos stuffed with chicken or carnitas-style jackfruit.

Standout Suds: Stone Hazy IPA, New England-style IPA

Pro Tip: Even if you’re not a hard-seltzer fan, “margaritas” made with Stone’s high-octane cane brew (the base for Buenavida seltzers) provide a delish break from beer.

Richbrau Brewing
5 S 20th St

Unrelated to the Shockoe Slip brewpub of the same name that closed in 2010, this maker of murky, kettle-soured, pastrified and Randallized beers serves brews in keeping with current trends in tandem with Lost Rail Pie Co. pizzas.

Garden Grove Brewing & Urban Winery
3445 W Cary St

Located along the main drag of chic Carytown, this multi-faceted spot specializes in lesser-seen European styles and barrel-aged beers, while also producing ciders, meads and wines made exclusively from Virginia-grown grapes.


The Answer Brewpub
6008 W Broad St

In the mid-90’s, before RVA’s twenty-first century breweries had so much as broken ground, there was one local zealously preaching the gospel of craft-beer…and he’s still at it. His name is An Bui and his pulpit was the bar of his Vietnamese restaurant, Mekong. In addition to curating one of the finest beer lists in the country, he held educational events and hosted meetings of the James River Homebrewers, members of which went on to open Hardywood Park, Strangeways, Ardent, Triple Crossing, Final Gravity and Midlothian’s Steam Belt Beer Works. Mekong remains hallowed ground among beer fans and brewers, but in 2014, Bui decided to join the latter faction, opening a brewpub next-door. Dubbed The Answer, its menu of Vietnamese-fusion cuisine is backed by 60-plus taps pouring a seemingly infinite selection of house beers (plus quality guest quaffs) leaning hard into today’s trends (hazies, crispy bois, smoothies, pastry stouts, quick-sours).

Even with such a lengthy beer list, standouts abound. Citra imparts bright orange-juice notes in a Philly-style sour IPA called Untitled Goose Beer. Peach fuzz and grapefruit pith are big in single-strength hazy Danksy, while triple-dry-hopped double NEIPA Puff and Pluck Skullz’s tropicality is reminiscent of a mai tai. A smoothie-style sour dubbed Rum Lychee Painkiller is everything it claims to be, and though sweet, a bourbon barrel-aged imperial stout with cacao nibs, toasted coconut and habanero is worth the diabetic risk. As good as those modern creations are, house takes on a traditional hefeweizen and kölsch are perfectly balanced, a nitro coffee stout is packed with the scent of java and deep roasted-malt character, and a smoked helles is a thing of beauty.

Standout Suds: Rum Lychee Painkiller, Fruited Smoothie-style Sour Ale

Pro Tip: No tourist’s visit to The Answer would be complete without also making a stop at the iconic Mekong.

Final Gravity Brewing
6118 Lakeside Ave

Tony Ammendolia bid adieu to the corporate world to follow his passion and help others do the same, opening a homebrew-supply store called Original Gravity at a strip mall in RVA’s Lakeside neighborhood in 2011. Following the passage of legislation allowing breweries to operate tasting rooms, he moved next-door to add a brewery and tasting room to the equation. Dubbed Final Gravity, it was a quick hit, so much that the homebrew aspect of the business needed to be scaled back to make more room for brewery patrons. Though more compact, Original Gravity (which is where a number of Richmond’s commercial brewers once purchased their homebrew kits and supplies) remains a hub for amateur fermentationists. And though larger, Final Gravity maintains an intimate, neighborhood atmosphere.

Ammendolia’s MO is to brew styles that aren’t readily available at other local breweries while also catering to his customers’ tastes. As a result, Final Gravity’s menu is split down the middle, with half the taps pouring forth a variety of IPAs augmented by an oft-changing selection of ale-and-lager miscellany. All win points with industry professionals and civilians alike for their authenticity and quality, particularly Doppler Effect, a pale gold, extra-dry IPA with notes of peach and papaya, a not-over-fruited grapefruit-laced version of which is also available. Kviek yeast fast-tracks Asteroids, a pineappley DIPA capable of satisfying haze-seekers, while dark-beer fans will enjoy Irish Goodbye, a dry stout purposely crafted to be sweeter and a tad more caramely than traditional interpretations of the style.

Standout Suds: Doppler Effect, New England-style IPA

Pro Tip: Ammendolia said he’d never do it, but customers pleaded so emphatically that Final Gravity now serves beer slushies.

Tabol Brewing
704 Dawn St

Pivots don’t get much harder than the one Tabol Brewing took to reshape itself in order to appeal to modern-day beer fans. The Northside business originally debuted as a niche op dealing exclusively in wild ales and saisons, but RVA wasn’t ready for such a funky operation, so owner Travis Dise took a step back to consider what he and potential patrons would most enjoy. His epiphany: even though craft-beer encompasses tons of crazy, strong, hoppy and extreme beers, what most people crave at the end of the day is a clean, refreshing, low-ABV lager. So, he threw out his playbook and wrote a new one focusing on bottom-fermenters with the occasional hazy or wild ale thrown in for fun. And it’s been a smashing success.

Order from an old-school marquee beer board then take a seat on the open-air deck or an eclectic tasting room decorated with blown glass from a prior tenant and thrift-store portraits painted over to include beer, goblets and tables (a nod to the brewery’s moniker, which is pronounced “table”). Spicy noble hops and a snappy finish are hallmarks of the near-perfect Top Pils, the Czech counterpart to a rounder Bavarian pilsner named Marke. Completing the trifecta is Caio Ragazzi, an Italian-style pilsner rife with verdant character from Saphir hops. Even a light lager brewed for the nearby Get Tight Lounge is intriguing thanks to faint Buddha’s hand notes. And though it’s not Tabol’s bread-and-butter, hazy prowess is conveyed by the pineapple, passionfruit and guava explosion delivered by New England-style pale ale August.

Standout Suds: Top Pils, Czech-style Pilsner

Pro Tip: If you’re a fan of sour, funky or wild ales, be sure to order any that hit the marquee. You won’t be disappointed.

Center of the Universe Brewing
11293 Air Park Rd, Ashland

During a six-year Major League career, righty hurler Chris Ray took up homebrewing as a hobby. That recreational pursuit led to plenty of clubhouse beers for his teammates…and a lot more. In 2011, he worked with Seattle’s Fremont Brewing to brew an IPA to raise funds to support U.S. military veterans via non-profit Operation: Homefront. It was such a hit (pun intended), that it grew into a national fundraiser backed by Hop Union and Louisville Slugger. And after retiring from baseball, Ray took his love for beer to the next level, opening the first brewery in Ashland, a community bordering Richmond to the north. Playfully labeled Center of the Universe (COTU), it converted a former newspaper office into a brewery with a bustling tasting room giving way to a large outdoor biergarten and a rec room packed with pinball machines, arcade games and more.

COTU’s tap list runs the gamut stylistically, but Ray’s roots lay firmly planted in the hop fields. While C-hopped flagship West Coast IPA, Pocahoptus (orange, grapefruit) is COTU’s best-known beer, a Mosaic-and-Simcoe-fortified session IPA dubbed Ray Ray’s Front Porch S’IPA brings even more layered flavors (mango, tangerine, black currant) in a small-but-mighty package. Meanwhile, the “Chameleon” line of hazies brewed with rotating hop varietals keeps things interesting, as do near-monthly seasonals highlighted by the World Beer Cup gold-medal-winning Bald Irishman red ale, Duderino white imperial stout and a double-dry-hopped edition of Pocahoptus.

Standout Suds: Ray Ray’s Front Porch S’IPA, Session IPA

Pro Tip: COTU beers are available at the Brewski Cantina inside The Diamond, home of the Double-A Richmond Flying Squirrels.

Strangeways Brewing
2277A Dabney Rd (Brewery) | 3110 W Leigh St (Scott’s Addition Tasting Room)

So many beers, so little time could be the slogan for this aptly named producer of anything and everything…and things that are just plain outlandish. Strangeways’ name (referencing The Smiths’ final studio album) matches its colorful, outwardly odd décor, featuring art pieces fashioned from reclaimed items ranging from hubcaps and bike-reflectors to rebar, horseshoes and animal heads. It’s in line with founder Neil Burton’s desire to be different from other RVA breweries, as is programming which includes monthly comedians and wildly popular burlesque shows, not to mention a beer list that’s as varied as it is vast.

Strangeways operates four venues (including out-of-town satellites in Fredericksburg and Williamsburg). The tasting room at its original brewery sports 36 taps split into descriptive categories such as “sweet,” “tart,” “light”, “dark/malty”. Kettle-sour fans can order multiple fruited variants of low-acid flagship Berliner weisse, Überlin, including What the Astronauts Drink, which gets its orange-ish flavor from a certain powdered beverage mix. Burton’s love for Belgian ales shows up in Strangeways’ core lineup care of peppery (yet surprisingly clear) witbier, Albino Monkey, and a nutty (almost smoky) Belgo brown ale dubbed Woodbooger, while the “hoppy” section of the menu is highlighted by tropical NEIPA, Murder Hornet, and San Diego-inspired West Coaster Hotel del Coronado.

Standout Suds: Albino Monkey, Belgian-style Witbier

Pro Tip: Saturday is the day of the week that Strangeways releases its new beers.

Intermission Beer Co.
10089 Brook Rd, Unit A, Glen Allen

A passion for the cinema adds color to this five-year-old husband-and-wife interest, where a gluten-free approach is taken with its stylistically varied beers, but definitely not the piping-hot pizzas emerging from an on-site brick oven.

Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery
11800 W Broad St

This local link in a brewpub chain stretching across the country is located inside the Short Pump Town Center mall in Richmond’s northwesternmost expanses, serving up assorted ales, lagers and a growing variety of hard seltzers.


Legend Brewing
321 W 7th St

This 28-year-old brewpub is RVA’s longest continuously operating beer interest. It’s American, UK and German ales and lagers can be enjoyed from a 200-seat deck that has one of the best cross-river views of downtown in the city.

Basic City Beer Co.
212 W 6th St

This satellite of a brewery based in Waynesboro (AKA: Basic City) focuses on hazy IPAs and lower-ABV lagers capable of quenching the thirst of pinball wizards and ping-pong savants making use of the venue’s game room.

Benchtop Brewing
434 Hull St

A non-brewing outpost of a Norfolk brewing concern, this modern, minimalist tasting room presents lagers (some foeder-aged) plus IPAs, kettle-sours and stouts, along with an inventive menu of next-level, globally inspired hot dogs.


Can Jam (February & August)
Triple Crossing Brewing, 5203 Hatcher St

Twice a year, Triple Crossing busts out some its favorite aluminum-packaged delights from their industry friends. Like lagers? Come May, this op jams out to bottom-fermenting beats.

Forever Summer Festival (August)
The Overlook at Childsavers, 200 N 22nd St

During the sunny season, The Veil organizes a much-awaited invitational event, summoning uber-popular breweries from across the country in the name of fun, flavor and humanitarianism.

BrewHaHa Virginia Craft Beer Festival (August)
Virginia Museum of History & Culture, 428 N Arthur Ashe Blvd

Beers by breweries from throughout the Commonwealth are served up at this suds-soaked annual fundraiser for the state’s oldest cultural organization, the Virginia Historical Society.
