Hardywood Craft Beer Richmond Beer Trail


Raise a pint to a world-renowned beer region

There are more than 30 good reasons why Richmond is on USA Today’s list of the top 10 best beer scenes. So where to start? Well, you’ll want to hit up Mekong, named America's Best Beer Bar. And check out Hardywood – their Gingerbread Stout has been named the top beer in Virginia by Thrillist. We’re home to Stone Brewing’s east coast brewery. The Answer Brewpub, which captured 1st in USA Today’s Ultimate Craft Beer Bracket Championship. Triple Crossing, whose Falcon Smash is one of Vinepair’s 25 Most Important IPAs. Okay, we could go on and on, but that would take away from your craft beer sipping time. Or your cider and mead sipping time (we have plenty of places to do that, too.)
