Dark Horse Rides Into Richmond

Dark Horse Brewing rides into town this week bringing their Beer Advocate 100 rated Crooked Tree IPA along with several of their other beers. They are known for experimenting with anything from baby formula to doughnuts.  Obviously, these guys are crazy; I mean, come on baby formula?!  Anyways I think their beers will fit in just fine in Richmond.  Thanks to Brown Distributing, Dark Horse will be exclusive to Richmond for the entire state of Virginia.
