Hardywood Presents: The Great Return…and Pizza Beer Dinner

imageHardywood is debuting their latest canned beer, The Great Return, a West Coast Style IPA, this week.  You’ll start to see the new beer around town soon but here are a couple events to consider.

Tuesday  October 22nd

Head over to The Boathouse at Rockett’s Landing at 5pm for Great Return IPA cans:

Bold, resinous and bursting with bright grapefruit aroma, this IPA is a tribute to the decades of hard work by conservationists to restore the James River as a bounty of vibrant aquatic life, eco-friendly recreational activity, and in our case, fresh brewing water. These efforts have culminated recently with the symbolic return of the endangered Atlantic Sturgeon, a prehistoric, yet majestic behemoth of a fish, spotted as far up the James River as the fall line in Richmond. Let’s celebrate!

$10 from every barrel of The Great Return produced will be shared with the James River Association.

Enjoy other Hardywood drafts as well as appetizer specials as you talk with representatives from Hardywood and James River Association.

At 7PM, head over to Conch Republic for the check presentation to the James River Association. 16 oz. cans of The Great Return and other Hardywood drafts available. Dinner specials.
