Legend Brewing and Triple Crossing will both celebrate anniversaries this weekend. Legend commemorates the start of craft brewing in Richmond with its twenty four years. Triple Crossing follows in their footsteps with four years of the successful resurgence of the brewing industry in the city.

Here are the details on each of their anniversary celebrations.

Legend Brewing Co 24th Anniversary — Saturday April 14th — Noon – 7PM

Legend has broken with tradition this year for their anniversary. It is no longer a ticketed event and a few food trucks have been invited to serve food.

24 years ago, Legend began as a small tasting room and pub off of an old gravel road called West 6th Street in Richmond’s Historic Old Manchester District. Today, Legend hosts a 380 seat deck overlooking the city with 18 taps of Legend Beer flowing. It’s that time of year again to shut it all down and bring out the big stage.

Join us as we celebrate 24 years of good beer and fun! We’re hosting live bands on the city stage, food trucks, face painting and cornhole.

ADMISSION IS FREE! Beer tickets will be available for $5 each.

FOOD:
Go Go Vegan Go
Mommas Barbecue
Boka Tako Truck
King Of Pops – Richmond

MUSIC:
12-2 The Phantom Playboys
2:30-4:30 Wes Freed & Mag Bats
5-7 Chamomile and Whiskey

Triple Crossing will have anniversary celebrations all weekend at both its locations starting Friday April 13th with a noon can release at Fulton. Though if you want to get a jump start on your TC party, head downtown tonight at 7pm as they host Vinyl Me, Please’s The Spins: Arctic Monkeys ‘Whatever People Say I Am.

What would an anniversary be without some new beer to go with it? Here’s a look at Fulton’s Friday draft list.

The action moves Downtown Saturday April 14th with a wild ale release and more draft.

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.

So I’ll be in Tampa, FL for a week but here are a few things to keep you busy while I’m gone.

Yes, you should absolutely go drink Festbier at Ardent. Maybe save me some, please?

Get “Involved” and support a great cause at the Veil.

Triple Crossing has gone binary with their beer names. Don’t worry, I’ve done the work for you.  “01100111 01110010 01101001 01100100” translates to GRID.

While you’re there, you might as well grab some Clever Girl as well.

Hardywood has a new sipper coming your way in the form of Brandy Cru this Saturday September 23rd. Sounds like it will be a nice beer to curl up with by a fire as the nights get colder. Head over to the Facebook event to learn more.

COTU has prepped the soundtrack for your weekend with their 5th annual Summer Moon Music Festival featuring two days of 13 local bands battling to support the charity of their choice. New to the festival this year is the addition of an acoustic stage to up the live music factor.

In addition to the regular lineup of beers, COTU will be pouring their Summer Moon Raspberry Lemonade Wheat Ale, a summer ale brewed with 600 pounds of fresh raspberries and the zest of 700 lemons.

Here are the bands playing for day one:

ZZQ at Ardent Craft Ales — Noon

An extra long weekend deserves monstrous beef ribs from ZZQ.

CuvĂ©e Peach Release at Hardywood — 1PM

I have been waiting very patiently for this beer to come out. Cuvee Peach is the newest addition to Hardywood’s barrel series line. Rather than beer from barrels aged the same amount of time, Hardywood has taken a blended barrel approach where their Peach Tripel was aged in chardonnay barrels anywhere from 10 weeks up to two years. Ethen Adams, Hardywood’s Wood Cellar Manager, explains more on that here.

Triple Crossing Debuts Gluten-Reduced Element 79 Today

Triple Crossing GR Element 79

UPDATE: Triple Crossing has given more details on this change to Element 79 over on their blog:

Element 79 – Leaner, meaner.. well maybe just gluten leaner

Our incredibly sessionable amalgamation of an American Blonde/British Golden Ale has undergone a significant change for those that have a gluten intolerance – and basically zero change for those that don’t.  We decided to try a relatively new product to reduce gluten levels in our  summer ale after an integral member of our team found that his gluten intolerance reached a level that forced him to stop drinking beer altogether – unacceptable in our eyes.

So, after hearing some positive reports about White Labs Clarity Ferm, we decided to give it a try.  The short of it is that Clarity Ferm is an enzyme that, while added prior to fermentation, significantly reduces the gluten content in beers made with barley and wheat.  The majority of beers tested fall below the current international standard of 20ppm gluten. For more information check out the White Labs spec sheet here.

Given that Element 79 is nothing more (or less) than 100% Pale Ale malted barley, we’d hoped this stuff would work its magic.  Sure enough, after a completely normal fermentation and normal everything else for that matter, we were left wondering what if anything actually happened.  The beer seemed like its old self, no changes… until we had our aforementioned guinea pig give it a shot – via two 16 oz pints.  Zero.  Issues.  But please be aware of the following: 1) the beer was made from a grain that contains gluten; 2) there is currently no valid test to verify the gluten content of fermented products; and 3) the finished product may contain gluten.  Needless to say, we’re thrilled he can enjoy his favorite beer again, and we couldn’t be happier to offer this beer to those with any sort of gluten intolerance, in the hope that they can once again enjoy barley based beer.

Cheers!
Team TCB

Head over to Triple Crossing today Friday July 10th at 4pm as they debut their reworked Element 79 as gluten reduced:

Times they are a’changing and we’ve decided to make Element 79 a ‘gluten-removed’ beer going forward!

That’s right, one of our flagship brands has been crafted to remove gluten. But please be aware of the following: 1) the beer was made from a grain that contains gluten; 2) there is currently no valid test to verify the gluten content of fermented products; and 3) the finished product may contain gluten.

This batch of Element 79 was treated with Clarity Ferm, a White Labs product designed to remove gluten from the beer.

To celebrate, we’ll have Relay Foods on site with gluten free products available to hand out to visitors. We’ve also got VCU jazz musician Willie D playing some jams throughout the evening.

Whether people with gluten intolerance or celiac disease will be able to enjoy this beer is a complicated question. For one while crafted to greatly reduce the gluten content of the beer, it is still brewed in an environment with barley, wheat, and rye grains. Secondly, the range of sensitivities for people suffering from gluten intolerance or celiac disease are different from person to person.

With those warnings out of the way, this beer should hopefully provide a new option for people who would not have been able to enjoy it all in the past.

Check out the Facebook event for more details and updates.
