Hardywood Park Craft Brewery is turning ONE, which we think is a pretty darn good reason for a party. Come out and celebrate with us - we'll be featuring event exclusive beers, three great Richmond bands, and a lineup of fantastic food trucks.
As we kick off the first official Virginia Craft Beer Month, join us for an afternoon of great tunes, delicious food and a celebration of the hop (the soul of every beer). This year, we're hoping to gather and sort hundreds of pounds of freshly harvested, Virginia grown hops for our community hopped beer, RVA IPA, which will be brewed within 24 hours of picking.
In the spring of 2012, Hardywood kicked off a "Community Hopping Project" by giving out 1,000 hop rhizomes to local gardeners interested in growing hops and contributing to a commercially brewed beer.
Kayakers, mountain bikers and rock climbers love a finely crafted beer almost as much as their favorite surfing hole, singletrack or rock wall. On July 11th, we're giving them the best of both.
Outside, the nation's largest outdoor-enthusiast publication is picking it's "Best Town Ever" for 2012. RVA currently leads the the vote. Our goal is to not just win the vote, but to CRUSH it.
Our special event will feature some of the finest outdoor outfitters in the region paired with some of the finest craft brews in the country.
Sample the latest gear and the latest brews.
Come help us celebrate the new liberty of VA breweries to sell glasses of beer on-site. We'll be featuring the release of our newest beer, SB 604, a 3.8% ABV American Special Bitter served in commemorative mason jars, live music from the People's Blues of Richmond, and great eats from your favorite RVA food trucks and carts, culminating in 4th of July fireworks over the Diamond.
Hardywood's Independence Day Celebration will be open to the public and there will be no entry fee. Bracelets will be available for people 21-years of age and over to sample and purchase beer.
