Who Put A Donut In My Beer?

Strangeways Samoa PorterStrangeways and Sugar Shack, that’s who. Get a taste of their Samoa Porter this Saturday March 12th starting at 11am.

Sugar Shack founder Ian Kelley and Strangeways founder Neil Burton exhibit several parallels when it comes to their respective businesses. Travel around the United States and Europe first fueled their interest in establishing unique, local ventures guided by quality and passion. Producing fresh, hand-crafted products with local ingredients whenever possible is paramount to them, as is their understanding that the community is the heart and soul that connects people with what they love most about their town. We hope you enjoy this luscious, donut-inspired samoa porter, with decadent flavors of caramel, toasted coconut and dark chocolate. Ian and Neil would also like to personally thank all of the hard-working folks at Sugar Shack and Strangeways for everything they do on a daily basis to make fresh, local products like this one possible. Cheers to collaboration and community!

Snow’s Off. New Beers Back At Strangeways And Hardywood Today

That little blizzard delayed a couple of beer outings from last week but the soup’s back on as they say at Strangeways and Hardywood today Saturday January 30th.

Hinterlander Barleywine Release at Strangeways — 11AM

Strangeways Hinterlander

11% ABV~62 IBU
Available in 375 ml bottles + Draft

We’re also doing a special on CAN-ABLES just for Hinterlander. Take it to go in a 32 oz. Crowler and we’ll give you the CAN-ABLE for FREE!

Starving of Thirst

From a legend whose origins are traced to Native American Algonquian peoples come tales of an enormous creature known as the Wendigo. Possessing characteristics part human and part monster, these beasts were said to emerge from people indulging in the ancient taboo of cannibalism. These malevolent, supernatural beings possessed great spiritual power, and were strongly associated with winter, coldness, famine, and starvation. Embodiments of gluttony, greed, and sheer excess, these Hinterlanders were never satisfied after consuming a person, and were constantly on the prowl for fresh victims in attempts to quench their lustful, never-ending desires. This barleywine, aged a solid year in oak barrels with Black Mission figs, exudes similar powers, calling one on a hunt to quench an unstoppable thirst. Savor the debauchery that is The Hinterlander.

Bourbon Sidamo Coffee Stout at Hardywood — 2PM

Hardywood Bourbon Sidamo 2016

An assertive Imperial Stout aged 12 weeks in bourbon barrels and conditioned on custom roasted Sidamo coffee from Lamplighter Roasting Company, Bourbon Sidamo showcases the signature flavors of whiskey, roasted malt and Ethiopian coffee. This robust stout displays a midnight hue with a caramel head and offers a dark chocolate character laced with hints of blueberry from this unique coffee bean, rounded out by charred White Oak infused by an angel’s share of Kentucky goodness.

Tasting room opens at 2pm for Bourbon Sidamo Coffee Stout bottles (4 bottles per customer), draft, Lampligher Roasting Company on site sampling fresh pour overs, food from Shamasuki, Slideways Mobile Bistroand Smokie JOE’S BBQ.

Reconnect With Richmond Beer This Fall At Ardent, Center of the Universe, Lickinghole Creek, Hardywood, and Strangeways Today

Hello Richmond.

Sorry for the empty pages over the last month. It has been a busy one here as we completed our second and final move of the year. Sadly, I ended up missing most of Virginia Craft Beer Month but I’m sure you had a great time. I’ve seen the pictures. Now that I am a full fledged city resident, I am excited to reconnect with our breweries to see what they will be up to these coming fall months.

Let’s see what is in store this weekend.

Ardent Craft Ales

Sweet Potato & Sage Saison is back.

Hanover Oktoberfest & Das Bier Run at Center of the Universe 

COTU makes one of my favorite Oktoberfest beers. You are missing out if you haven’t tried simmering bratwurst in it before grilling.

Also, I hope there are some of these smoked beers left because I missed out.

Maiden’s Adventure Release & Pumpkin Picking Party at Lickinghole Creek

Show LCCB some love this weekend as they go from summer into fall in one weekend.

Brewed just once a year when hops are at their peak freshness, RVA IPA is sure to go quickly!

Gourd of Thunder Release at Strangeways

Strangeways Gourd of Thunder

Your favorite pumpkin brew is back- with one twist- it’s now available on draft and in 750 ml bottles.

Gourd of Thunder is a dark and gnarly Imperial Pumpkin Porter brewed with freshly picked local pumpkins that were ripened on the vine while continuously listening to heavy metal. The malty pumpkin backbone fuses robustly with a milky sugar creaminess. Bourbon vanilla beans lay down a rock-steady foundation that drives the cinnamon, ginger and clove spices through your skull. This brew does not merely mimic the flavor of a mortal pumpkin pie. Gourd of Thunder will cataclysmically blow your mind with its face-melting, high-voltage attitude. Headbangers Unite!
