The last few weeks I have been talking about Strangeways Brewing. Every thing has been pretty quiet as to when they will open here in Richmond. Well their time has finally come. They will be releasing Batch 1 and Batch 2 this Sat at locations around Richmond. Their tasting room officially opens on Wed 29th. I’ll post more as details finally come forward. Oh and notice I don’t have beer names or styles, they are still keeping that information under wraps.
So with that let’s get into our updates:
