There’s a reason Richmond is ranked so highly when it comes to its beer scene - there’s no shortage of fantastic breweries and delicious beers here in our city.
We’ll be covering some old standbys, some new kids on the block, and even a veteran coming out of retirement. Without further ado, here are five Richmond brewers you should visit before the end of summer:
Tabol Brewing is a small-batch brewery located in the Battery Park area at 704 Dawn Street. Their small tasting room is the best place in town to try something unique - this brewery specializes in finding wild yeasts to ferment - creating delicious, wild-tasting beers you can’t find anywhere else.
Hardywood West Creek, located on 820 Sanctuary Trail Dr, about 20 minutes from downtown Richmond, is the newest and second of Hardywood’s tasting rooms. Their new space, which overlooks the Tuckahoe Creek, features an absolutely massive (and gorgeous) indoor taproom with a built-in stage, and mezzanine-level conference room. Outside of the beautiful taproom you’ll find a patio, beer garden, and food truck plaza.
Located at 2900 West Broad in Scott’s Addition, Bingo Beer Company is the newest addition to the barcade scene in RVA. Offering plenty of beers brewed at their location, Bingo also offers arcade games, pinball, ping pong, and other boardwalk classics. It’s a truly Richmond experience - great beer and good fun in a repurposed space.
Located at 212 W 6th Street, Basic City is located near Legend Brewing Co (an absolute classic) and Camden’s Dogtown Market. This dog friendly brewery is guaranteed to have a brew for everyone in your crew to enjoy, and is the perfect place to relax after exploring the ever-growing Manchester area.
It’s back! I remember drinking twenty-four-ounce bottles of their root beer back in middle school before they closed! Located in Shockoe Bottom at 5 South 20th Street, Richbrau’s taproom is one of the only open on Mondays. Serving everything from Hazy IPAs to Imperial Stouts and Sour Ales, Richbrau has something for everyone.
