Train For Hardywood Twilight Four Miler With Firkin Crawl Thursday

Richmond is truly turning into such a wonderful beer town.  Here I am coming off the meaty-ale high that was the Beer & Charcuterie pairing at The Room at Secco Wine Bar.

charcuterie The Room SeccoYes, it was all delicious.  It us events like this that can make it difficult to pick and choose between all the different beer, live music, and theatre events that are readily abundant and all exceptional.  So here is the series of events making me miss the Hardywood Firkin Crawl this Thursday February 21st:

  1. Originally, I had tickets for Mary Poppins at the Landmark for Friday night.
  2. Burger Blast at Virginia Wine Expo is announced and I scurry to move tickets to Thursday to keep Saturday free just in case…
  3. Hardywood Firkin crawl is announced on Facebook.  I accept forgetting I already had plans which I only remembered yesterday.

So no crawl for me but you should definitely check it out.  I’m really intrigued by that Smoked IPA.

Here are the stops on the crawl:

5:15PM — Commercial Taphouse — ESB dry hopped with Chinook hops
6:00PM — Secco Wine Bar — Smoked IPA dry hopped with Amarillo & Citra hops
7:00PM — Burger Bach — Barrel-aged Hardywood Singel
