Join Team Steam For Steam Bell Beer Works Grand Opening Today

20160606_205200.jpgSteam Bell Beer Works, Chesterfield’s first brewery, will open their doors for their grand opening today June 11th starting at 1pm. Steam Bell will have a mind boggling ten beers they will be serving throughout this weekend.

Here is a look at part of that list.

Here are a few interesting facts behind the three of the beer names:

  • Patchronce – Grisette with blackberries & raspberries.   Patch ronce is actually French for briar patch.
  • Southern Stubby – West Coast DIPA with Mandarina Bavaria, citra, and Nelson Sauvignon hops will be tapped on Sunday. Stubby is a term used for a squat (short) beer bottle in New Zealand.
  • Liège is a city in Belgium where the waffles are characterized by being sweet with vanilla and cinnamon and risen using ale yeast rather than baking soda.

Tiramisu Stout, Patchronce, & Grisette

The last two beers are collaborations with Three Notch’d and Adroit Theory.

The Veil Brewing’s Grand Opening This Saturday Is So Fancy…But You Already Knew


Richmond, we’re in the fast lane to The Veil Brewing‘s grand opening this Saturday April 16th from 11am to 11pm. From moment the Veil landed on Facebook, we have seen little peaks inside the mind of Matt Tarpey. (Fun fact: if you’ve interacted with them on Facebook, you were speaking directly to Matt. He has been running their social media from day one.) Saturday though, the gates swing wide open. Let’s go through a few of their updates to see what to expect.

First off, there will be four beers on tap:

  • Sleeping Forever — Imperial Stout (next year’s release will have bourbon barrel version blended in)
  • Dull Fangs — IPA with Galaxy & Nelson hops and organic grapefruit
  • Master Shredder (guitar not evil TMNT villain) — wheat IPA; year round flagship
  • Crucial Taunt — double IPA

Let’s get the rest of your questions out of the way.

Can I get these beers to go? Yes. Yes, you can. No growlers though.

What about glassware? How do you feel about gold and platinum?

Will there be shirts? Limited realness.

Posters? Why wouldn’t there be posters?

Ok, smart guy. What about food and entertainment? ZZQ, Stroops, Boka, and two DJs. Yeah, it’s that kind of party.

Head over to their Facebook event for more details and updates.
