RVA’s Craft Beer Scene
Why the world keeps taking notice
There are about 40 good reasons why people come from all over the world for a Richmond craft beer experience. These breweries are tucked throughout the region, and 10 of them are all right in a neighborhood called Scott’s Addition. So where to start? Well, you’ll want to hit up Mekong, named America's Best Beer Bar. And check out Hardywood, where their Gingerbread Stout has become a hot holiday-season commodity. We’re home to Stone Brewing’s east coast brewery, which is an experience in itself. And The Veil Brewing Co. was named one of the “most-hyped breweries in America right now” by Gear Patrol. Okay, we could go on and on, but that would take away from your craft beer sipping time. Check out more below. Or, hop on the Richmond Beer Trail. If you visit five craft breweries and get your beer trail map stamped, you’ll get free Richmond beer swag. And you’ll end up with about 100 new favorite beers.
The Richmond Region is home to more than 30 craft breweries, distilleries and cideries and hundreds of restaurants serving locally made beer and cider on tap. In fact, Vinepair named Richmond the #1 craft beer destination in the world!
