American Craft Beer Week RVA 2013: Tastings

American Craft Beer Week is so huge this year, I am now on my fourth post just to get the details out.  Here is where you can sample your way through the week. 

Libbie Market

Libbie Market will have a special tasting Wednesday May 15th to celebrate the release of Hardywood Cream Ale cans from 4:30 – 7PM.  If Libbie Market can get 50 people to confirm they will attend tasting on Facebook, they will break out some beloved Hardywood Reserve Series and Barrel Series releases for the event as well.  Maybe some Gingerbread Stout?
