It is hard to imagine that it has already been three years since Ardent Craft Ales opened their doors in Scott’s Addition.  I mean it feels like it was just yesterday when I was having my first tastes of Honey Ginger and Sweet Potato & Sage Saison in the Church Hill brew garage. In some ways, it feels like Ardent has always been right there. It’s as if it was preordained that they would occupy that very spot in Scott’s Addition.

Ardent will celebrate their third anniversary with a huge block party this Saturday June 17th starting at noon featuring over 20 guest beers plus bottles and draft of a special Third Anniversary Tripel.

Guest Beers

Enjoy live music throughout the day from the following bands:

Food will be available from the following vendors:

This event is free to enter and open to the public. Beverage purchases (21+) will be ticketed; $6 per ticket, with ticket sales at the door and inside the event. All food is pay-as-you-go from the individual food vendors. Event is rain or shine. No outside food, beverages, or coolers are allowed. Kids and families welcome; must be 21+ to consume alcohol. Leashed friendly dogs welcome. Thank you for your help making this a safe, fun event for everyone.
