This brewery is seeing exciting growth. The first time I visited it was in a small room. Now in a larger room but plans on expanding further. They purchased the used fermenters and other equipment from O’connor in Norflk. There was a food truck at the brewery . The bertender Robb was helpful and knowledgeable of their beers. The expansion will be ready mid year. I liked their IPA the best of the group I tried.

Virginia’s newest brewery, for now. Was a bit of a trick to find as my GPS hasn’t been updated too long. Located in an industrial park just a bit North of the interstate. This is a small brewery in an industrial park with a small tasting room, but planning to expand both brewing operations and the tasting room as soon as the neighboring unit becomes available. Only 2 beers on tap and only 3 taps in the tasting room. They are still on a 55 gallon system with 3 barrel fermentation tanks. The beer was solid. A little bit pedestrian and slightly off-style, but still showing some signs of promise. The head brewer was working the tasting room and was very nice, as were his parents who were helping him out. Plenty of parking. My growler fill was $10. A few years ago Richmond lost two breweries, but with Hardywood Park and now this place they’ve gotten two back, and the overall quality is better. Good for them.
