A large warehouse brewery with lots of room for expansion, plus a tasing bar up front. All beers are free, which of course is very nice. The Singel was available in its natural state, or pulled through a Randell with pineapple, citra hops and a touch of ginger. A new DIPA was also available plain or with peppercorn. They have a 20 gallon homebrew system, and occasionally offer experimental beers from that in addition to their regular range. Very friendly staff. Definitely the highlight of my beer tour of Richmond.

December 2011. Stopped by during a 3-hour opening of the small tasting room. A tour was going on which meant we could get to the bar -- as soon as it ended, the bar was swarmed. They’ll give you about a 4 oz taste of anything they have on -- they had just 3 the day we visited, including a really unique gingerbread stout. Big warehouse brewery with gorgeous, brand-new equipment. Took a small growler with us. I wish them luck. Brewery #571.

Absolutely enormous, with 2 buildings. We went during an event and had our beers in the main brewing building. Very nice and they are obviously doing well. We only had 4 beers for the event, but I am sure the main tasting room has more. Beer was decent, I would come back to try the rest.

Hardywork Park is located in industrial warehouse park somewhere in Richmond. They had a tap room that opens up into a second brewery bar where they fulfill growler fills. They only had 7 available on tap but they had 3 others beers in bombers. Clearly this is a very popular place because there were people everywhere. They have a couple of lots next to their building but they were full so the street was lined with cars. The tap too, filled quickly so we found the last table in brew house which is not air conditioned and when filled with people gets loud and hot very quickly. Other than the four beer samplers, they served their beer in plastic cups which did it no favors. It seems like a place making ambitious beer but as an outing I think I would have preferred to visit on a Thusday afternoon.

Located in an industrial park. There was enough parking. This is a BRAND new brewery so while they are open to the public, there are still some things going on construction-wise. Today they were putting the sign on the front of the brewery. Large tasting room in front of a massive brewery operation. These guys have room to expand for sure. A bar in the center of the room got pretty crowded. Only two beers were being offered at the time, but they have 8 taps, so variety should increase in the future. Samples were free. Beers were good. Growlers are cheap for glass ($5) and fills are on the high side of reasonable. A little bit of swag was available (glasses, hats, bumper stickers). Really cool, down to earth people working there, the head brewer included. It seems like Hardywood is definitely going to be a credit to the Virginia beer scene.

Stopped in with le Drake on a busy Thursday night. Thursday nights at Hardywood are apparently a big event, and many local food trucks were present to serve in what felt like a mini food festival. There were probably 6 beers available from a number of different locations around the brewery. No flights available, but a number of offerings were available by the bottle. Service was fine. Prices seemed to be absolutely extortionate. Should I really be happy to pay over $5 for a 12oz pour of a core IPA at a brewery? No. Anyway, worth checking out.

Swung by here for the release party for Gingerbread Stout. The event had a really nice crowd, solid live music, good prices, and some other interesting beers (in addition to the Gingerbread, which was really good). I’ve heard good things about their beers from a few other Richmonders, and was looking forward to trying their beer. I was not disappointed. I’ll have to go back for a non-event visit so I can sample a few more of their offerings, but from what I can tell, this is an excellent addition to the Richmond craft scene.

Only five beers on served in plastic cups but an event was going on so not sure if this was the norm. Quality was there.

Visited for GBS and Bourbon GBS releases. Releases are well organized. Tasting room past the front door of the main facility with more tap service to the right in a re-modeled warehouse area. Half pints, pints, and growler fills available plus some merchandise. Other bottles and cans also available for purchase. Good service. Normally a few food trucks and vendors on site for their releases. Worth stopping by when they’re open or if there’s a release you’re interested in.

Had to park down the street to get to this one, was pretty darn packed when I got there - a good thing. People are appreciating this place. There were three beer stations - main tasting room, one right off the side and one on the other side of the bar. Nice setup, nice beer, nice live music.
