Iím cautiously excited about this new brewery coming to the Richmond area. Their head brewer is coming from Blue & Gray (and Pyramid I think), which has never been a great brewery and ever since he left Blue & Grayís beers have seemed to get better.

Anyone know anything about the guy behind it? Almost seems like heís trying to recreate something like Hill Farmstead.

I got nothing. Dude seems like heís kept a pretty low profile in terms of press. Iím not even sure when they are scheduled to be opening?

Nothing here either. Just a few articles talking about the farm setting for the brewery and that they will grow their own hops. But so far, not a lot of information out there. It seems like I first heard about plans for this brewery about the same time I started hearing about COTU, Strangeways, and Haxall. COTU and Strangeways are cranking out brews. The other two???

theyíve built the brewery from scratch on their farmland. erected whole new structures. seems like a big bet. hope it pays off. but like i said, the brewmaster was most recently at Blue & Gray which isnít exactly awe inspiring, and I heard he brewed for Pyramid at one point.

There is a new small brewery in Ladysmith called Rusty Beaver. Could be a connection.
