BREAKING: Hardywood Park Going to SAVOR!

The Brewer’s Association  has released the breweries selected to attend SAVOR for 2012.  Congratulations go out to Hardywood Park Craft Brewery for being selected to attend SAVOR this coming June in Washington, DC!  Richmond, you should be very proud to have Hardywood represent us at the premier food and craft beer event in our nation’s capital.  Other Virginia breweries selected to attend include Devils Backbone (Supporting Brewery), Capitol City Brewing, and Port City Brewing.  View the full list of breweries here and read up on my experience at last year’s SAVOR here.  Once again, congrats Hardywood on the well deserved selection!  I hope to be joining you up there this year! 

Empress Tastes Dark Beers for January

In their last Tuesday Tasting of the month, The Empress will take diners on a tour of five dark beers and exciting food pairings.  Aaron Hoskin’s first pairing gives me something I’ve been waiting to see in Richmond for a long time, DUCK FAT FRIES!


Unlike most of their tastings this one is not gluten-free and there will not be gluten-free options available. However, there will be vegetarian options available for the tasting.  The tasting is $25 and starts at 7pm sharp and reservations are strongly recommended.  See more over at the Facebook event here.
