Who’s Got Spirit? Hardywood That’s Who!

Hardywood Spirit BraidSpirit Braid that is.

Celebrating the next installment of our Brewer & Artist Series, we present the work of Nick Walthall and Sara Gossett:

Hardywood Spirit Braid is a well attenuated, highly effervescent saison brewed with organic raw wheat from Grapewood Farm in Montross, Virginia. Seville and Cara Cara oranges bring brightness and a touch of acidity. Fermented in stainless with a blend of Nick’s favorite brewers yeast and Brettanomyces claussenii, this beer is unfiltered, 100% bottle conditioned, and is designed to be a crusher. 5.2% alcohol by volume.

Sara Gossett is an artist from Texas who has been living in Richmond, VA for nearly ten years. Working primarily with watercolor, she loves vintage style and design and is heavily inspired by everything from the eras of Art Nouveau and Art Deco to poster art and illustration from the 1960’s & ‘70’s, hand lettering, and decorative pattern from all over the world. She also loves music, from playing the flute to playing records at the occasional DJ gig.

Spirit Braid will be available on draft, bottles and 4-packs beginning at 2pm, with NY Style food truck through the evening.
