Celebrate Memorial Day Weekend The Richmond Beer Way

Richmond, another Memorial Day weekend is upon us! Whether you’re just looking for a beer to take a cookout or if you’d rather leave the cooking to the professionals, I have your look at the days ahead.

Steal the Vessel at Strangeways — ALL WEEKEND

This actually started yesterday but I missed it earlier:

It’s the Thursday before a long holiday weekend. If you’re headed out of town or headed to a backyard barbeque, you need to stock up on the juice that keeps the party going. Lucky for you Steal the Vessel day has arrived. Purchase To-Go beer for a Growler, Grunt, Blue Ball mason jar, or CAN-ABLE Crowler, and receive the vessel for free every Thursday. Already have plenty? Bring back in your Strangeways glass for discounts on refills. For all you holiday travelers coming through RVA, stop by… we’ve extended Steal the Vessel for the entire holiday weekend. Take a little strange on vacation or home with you.

Tomorrow's can release at Fulton starts at 12p. 4x4pk limit. Be careful, she's lethal.

COTU has prepped the soundtrack for your weekend with their 5th annual Summer Moon Music Festival featuring two days of 13 local bands battling to support the charity of their choice. New to the festival this year is the addition of an acoustic stage to up the live music factor.

In addition to the regular lineup of beers, COTU will be pouring their Summer Moon Raspberry Lemonade Wheat Ale, a summer ale brewed with 600 pounds of fresh raspberries and the zest of 700 lemons.

Here are the bands playing for day one:

ZZQ at Ardent Craft Ales — Noon

An extra long weekend deserves monstrous beef ribs from ZZQ.

Cuvée Peach Release at Hardywood — 1PM

I have been waiting very patiently for this beer to come out. Cuvee Peach is the newest addition to Hardywood’s barrel series line. Rather than beer from barrels aged the same amount of time, Hardywood has taken a blended barrel approach where their Peach Tripel was aged in chardonnay barrels anywhere from 10 weeks up to two years. Ethen Adams, Hardywood’s Wood Cellar Manager, explains more on that here.
