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.

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.

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. Theyíll 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.

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). Iíve heard good things about their beers from a few other Richmonders, and was looking forward to trying their beer. I was not disappointed. Iíll 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.

This place is EASILY the best brewery in Richmond, probably all of VA, and will probably fall inline to be one of the top 10 breweries on the east coast if they can continue to put out the amazing quality beer that they have debuted with this past year. The facility has lots fo room for expansion, and the owners are all stand up dudes. While this brewery isnít a "must tour" brewery, their beers are a "MUST SEEK OUT AT ALL COSTS" if you are passing through the RVA.

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.

Converted warehouse space with crepes food truck out front. (Didnít try). They have a stage space for bands inside with decent acoustics. Smoking is allowed inside and so are little kids (both minuses for me). Outside they have a roped off parking lot area for the food trucks and picnic tables, corn hole, etc. womanís room was clean and well maintained, though single use. Picnic tables are inside as well. weirdly the table was wet even though it was inside. Additional portapotties are outside ( lovely). The brews are 10 oz pours in plastic biodegradable cups (negative) that range from $4 to $6 a pour. 4 beer flights in glass for $11 (I think). Bombers are available for $10ish and growlers of various sizes are available.

Been here twice. Both times were packed. Once for some bluegrass festival and another was because of a private function that forced us to the "smaller" side of the brewery. Service was decent both times. i didnít feel unwelcome but it didnít have that "feeling" to it. Beers were pretty good and they had decent selection to go. Would definitely return with hopefully a smaller crowd. Would also like to do a tour, if offered.
