Monday Beer Dinners: Lickinghole Creek At Southbound and Hardywood At Graffiato

Does anyone really like to cook on a Monday? I know I don’t. Especially, if what I planned for Sunday was very involved. Plus, you had one of those Mondays; you know the ones where everything goes wrong. Maybe take this Monday March 16th off and head out to a beer dinner or two.

Lickinghole Creek Cask Pin Dinner at Southbound — 6PM

UPDATE: Southbound was not able to sell enough tickets to host this dinner. The pins will be tapped at a later date.

Southbound has the makings of a hit dinner on its hands here. Three cask conditioned pins each paired with three small plate items. These are unique creations you will not see anywhere else. You will normally only see one cask beer at a dinner due to how much they cost the restaurant. This is a rare treat. Don’t sleep on this and miss out.

LCCB Southbound dinner 031615

The cost for the dinner is $50/person.  Contact the restaurant to reserve your spot.

Hardywood & Plan 9’s 33 1/3 Black Vinyl Stout Release Is Today. All Of This Citrus Smells Amazing!

Hardywood 33 1_3 Stout2Hardywood has teamed up with Plan 9 to celebrate the record store’s passion for vinyl records over the decades, 33 1/3 years of vinyl love in Richmond to be exact.  They have poured their love into the liquid sound of 33 1/3 Black Vinyl Stout bringing “forth the warmth of sound and flavor achieved with a full bodied stout (or a vinyl record) and a chorus of citrus flavors to complete the track. Cara Cara oranges, Sumo mandarins, and kumquats harmonize together to compliment the deep chocolate malt backbone. Savor in stereo.”

I happened into Hardywood just in time to smell the amazing combination of citrus that would make it into this beer.  If you have ever sectioned any type of citrus, you how much of a pain it can be.  Yes, I helped a little bit.

wpid-20150227_172942.jpgHead over to Hardywood today Saturday March 7th starting at 2pm to give this collaboration a try. Black Vinyl Stout will be available on draft for pints and growler fills.

Hardywood will also debut an Irish Coffee Stout on nitro on Saturday as well.

Hardywood Irish Coffee Stout celebrates the luck of the Irish channeling warm rich, creamy notes of vanilla beans along strong roasty, dark chocolate flavors. We partnered with Cafe Stella in historic Ghent in Norfolk Virginia using their espresso roast to perk up your day and blend with Willamette hops for a beautiful floral, earthy aroma. Served on Nitro Tap. 8.5% ABV 25 SRM 40 IBU

Plan 9 will have DJs spinning from 2- 4:30 followed by live music from Hotel XThe Diamond CenterWhite Laces, and Kepone.

Head over to the Facebook event for more information and updates.
