RVA Beer Week 2015: Beer Dinners

It’s that time again, it’s RVA Beer Week (November 1 — 8)! This is a celebration of our collective craft beer culture. Since 2010, when this week of events was first enacted, our craft scene has exploded! Back then we were on the low end of the national average at about a 5% craft beer share of our total collective beer market. Now however, we are booming! With some estimates hinting at a jump to 16% craft beer share in 2015, more than tripling where we were 5 short years ago.

Craft beer has become an integral part of our restaurants, festivals, and daily social life. Our area breweries have multiplied from 2 at the inception of RBW, to currently 14 area craft breweries pouring. The medals and awards for their amazing creations grow with each passing year. Our craft focused restaurants in town have won tons of accolades as well, and amazing growler stations and expanded bottle selections have opened at independent businesses and at local grocery stores. Even one of the most respected out-of-state craft power houses, Stone Brewing, has noticed Richmond. Choosing our fair city for their highly anticipated east coast location expansion! There is every indication that this is just the beginning of our cities craft beer renaissance, with an additional 7-9 RVA area breweries in planning that will debut to beer fans over the next year!

So help celebrate our collective passion and support our scene! Take the opportunity to introduce a friend to craft beer in Richmond. Go out and drink at your favorite brewery or restaurant. Buy something to share from a bottle shop or growler station. Join us and rally around our amazing beer town! Cheers!
