So this weekend marks the end of Richmond Beer Week. I’ve made it to a few events and have seen decent crowds. Hopefully as the scene grows more and more people will make it out to these special people put into celebrating Craft Beer.
So there is a lot of news I want to get out here before this week’s events.
First I’d like to say Welcome to the Beer Community to Original Gravity Homebrew Supplies. Yes, that’s right Richmond. There is a new shop opening on Wed Nov 16th. I had an opportunity to meet Tony, who owns the shop. He’s pretty excited about serving the homebrewer community in Richmond. They are located 6920 Lakeside Ave, Suite D.
Also this week I learned that a brewery long in the planning has come one step closer. Jon Wright is moving forward with licensing on his Redbeard Brewing. Folks, I have an opportunity to taste his Stout and I believe Brown Ale and both are very solid. Can’t wait to share them with friends. They will be located in Stauton, VA.
Another brewery I learned that is making progress is Barnhouse Brewing in Lucketts, VA. Word is they are getting equipment and working recipes.
Finally, I want to personal say hello to Kory Mohr who has set up VaBeerTrail.com. Now I love what he is doing there. If you ever want to know where a particular brewery or bottle shop is located visit his site. However, he’s offering more than that. You can find reviews and topic related Virginia Craft Beers. We are both looking at ways to work together to help the Virginia Beer Community to grow.
