RVA Beer Week 2014 – Richmond.com

Our local craft breweries and the restaurants that support them are gearing up to help Richmonders celebrate the amplification of the local craft beer buzz. RVA Beer Week 2014, Nov. 1-9, will feature a variety of beer-centric events, mostly focusing on our growing list of central Virginia breweries.

Restaurants will host tap takeovers, pub crawls and other events. The Answer Brewpub promises to have beer events and special guests throughout the week. The Cask Café, a big supporter of local beer, is simultaneously celebrating their first anniversary this week, offering draft and growler specials, rare beer tappings, tap invasions and more.

Breweries will be releasing notable limited-release beers and hosting special events, including the Autumn Bottom Festival.

Strangeways features events each day, inviting the public to “stop by the Laboratory to celebrate all things light, dark, hoppy, malty, and sour during RVA Beer Week!” Throughout the festivities, these Strange folks will be saying “Happy Birthday, Firkin!” to their beloved, 1-year-old beer engine, with weeklong specials. They’ll offer “gingerbread curiosities” with some of their most popular beers: Woodbooger, Gourd of Thunder and Ümlaut infused with gingerbread flavor. They’ll offer free candy pairings from Southern Season with purchase of the Sweet Flight, the Sour Flight, or the Sweet & Sour Flight. They’ll also be introducing the brand new Can-Able Crowler filler, combined can-growler.

The events below are already set to tap, though more events may be brewing. Details are available on the breweries’ and restaurants’ websites and Facebook pages.
