PRESS RELEASE

Strangeways Brewing is Expanding with 3rd Location in Richmond’s Scott’s Addition Neighborhood

RICHMOND, VA (November 26, 2018) – Strangeways Brewing has signed a lease in the heart of Scott’s Addition at 3110 West Leigh Street, marking its third brewery and tasting room facility in Virginia.

Strangeways will continue to operate its tasting room and private event facility at 2277A Dabney Road, and just last year opened a new facility in owner Neil Burton’s hometown of Fredericksburg, Virginia, at 350 Lansdowne Road.

Making it easier for tourists and locals alike to visit its facility while spending time in the densely packed local craft beverage and restaurant scene that Scott’s Addition is famous for was just one of the reasons owner Neil Burton gave for opening Strangeways’ new location.  “We are excited to help play a part in Virginia’s local tourism economy, utilize as many local ingredients in beers and in snacks as we can, and employ more people,” said Burton.

The new location, situated in Scott’s Addition directly across from Circuit Arcade Bar and in the same building housing SMoHK Real Southern Food, will have more than 4,000 square feet and a sizable outdoor patio.  As with its other two facilities, Strangeways will showcase a large assortment of different beer styles including lagers, IPA’s, Belgian styles, sours, and dark beers.  Strangeways also is in the process of producing cider to bring a gluten reduced option to their patrons.

Stay tuned for more information regarding when Strangeways Brewing RVA-Scott’s Addition plans to open their doors.

This is the third location for Strangeways Brewing, which opened in Henrico County in 2013.  The original Richmond and Fredericksburg breweries will continue to produce beers on their 20-barrel and 10-barrel systems respectively, and operate its award winning tasting rooms.

The All Star line up for tomorrow! Tickets will be sold for $6 and can be redeemed for any can. There will be some rules to how Can Jam will be operated, so please read these in advance of coming to the brewery Sunday:

1) Triple Crossing packaged products will only be available at our Downtown location on 2/11. There will be no packaged products (or to-go products) of any kind available at our Fulton location for the duration of the event on 2/11.
2) Tickets, which will be exchanged for cans, can be purchased upon arrival. Only 3 tickets can be purchased at a time. You can get in line again to purchase 3 more, if so desired.
3) Each ticket may be exchanged for one brand from one brewery at a time. For example, you may exchange all 3 tickets at once, but it must be for 3 different beers from 3 different breweries. We’ve done this to ensure that as many guests as possible have the opportunity to try out a wide variety of breweries and their beer.
4) Any cans you receive will be opened by our server upon ticket exchange. There are no exceptions to this rule.
5) Absolutely no outside beer will be allowed on Triple Crossing premises.

The Phantom Of The Opera Is Beer Inside Your Mouth At Hardywood Saturday

Hardywood Phantoms of Opera

*Organ music plays*

A chorus sings “the Phantom of the Opera is beer inside….your mouth.”

Oh wait, that’s not right, is it? No matter, I’ve been waiting for the day when Hardywood would release the beers they brewed with the cast of Phantom of the Opera since December.

Join Hardywood on Saturday February 10th to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Broadway musical and try Drink of Me Fondly and Pint of No Return starting at 1pm.

ABOUT THE BEERS

DRINK OF ME FONDLY:
Brewed to commemorate the 30th anniversary of The Phantom of the Opera on Broadway, Drink of Me Fondly is a festive and effervescent sparkling ale, with bright notes of tangerine zest bursting through subtle apricot and white grape undertones. Rose hips deliver a light floral aroma. 4.1% ABV.

PINT OF NO RETURN:
Pursue your deepest urge in this black Lager by Hardywood Park Craft Brewery, The Happy Hour Guys and The Phantom of the Opera on Broadway. A paradox for the senses, Pint of No Return is a clean and crisp lager that pours as black as night with notes of toasted pecan, a mild hint of black currant and smooth roasted undertones. 5.5% ABV.

Pint of No Return is our official Broadway Brews beer, and will be available at The Majestic Theatre in NYC in mid-2018 (stay tuned for NYC launch updates!). A portion of the sales of Pint of No Return will benefit Musicians On Call.

Check out the Facebook event for more details and updates.

In the meantime, here are a few clips to put the phantom inside your mind….
