THE RICHMOND REGION’S CRAFT BEER EXPERIENCES
Raise a pint to a world-renowned beer region
There are about 40 good reasons why Richmond is on USA Today’s list of the top 10 best beer scenes. Our 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 ¬– 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.)
Check out more below. Or, just 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 a lot of new favorite beers, too. Use the map links or venue list below to start your journey.
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!
