Feast of the 7 Beers

With more than 30 craft breweries, the Richmond Region is the perfect setting for this tasty spin on the traditional Feast of the 7 Fishes celebration. The options are overflowing for visitors to try seven different beers as they explore the seven jurisdictions of RVA – over a long holiday weekend, with a ride service, or accompanied by a designated driver. 

Day 1

Fuel up in preparation for your liquid feast with a delectable dinner at ML Steak Modern Chophouse in Richmond, a fun and fresh approach to the old stuffy steakhouse.

Beer #1: Choose from 28 self-pour taps dedicated to craft beer (and wines) at Downpour Taproom in Chesterfield.

Beer #2: Next up, venture out to Ashland where it all revolves around the beer at Center of the Universe Brewing Co. which offers an ever-evolving spectrum of ale styles.

Beer #3: For your final beer stop of the day, have a drink at Final Gravity Brewing Co. in the Lakeside area of Richmond, and stop by their home brewing shop next door.

Grab a late-night bite on the patio of Pizza and Beer of Richmond, a perfect people-watching spot that serves up pies with toppings that include fried green tomatoes, pimento cheese and other unique flavors.

 

Day 2

Sleep in a little, then start off your day with a relaxing hangover cure walk on the scenic and peaceful Appomattox River Trail in Colonial Heights.

Beer #4: Stop in nearby Chester to quench your thirst at Dancing Kilt Brewery with a beer from their Fractured Fairy Tale collection.

Beer #5: From folklore to legends, your journey continues at Legend Brewing Co. in the Manchester area of Richmond for an easy-drinking cold brew and lunch, along with one of the best views of the city.

Beer #6: In the countryside of the region, find a comfy porch seat with a vineyard view for a drink at New Kent Winery & Talleysville Brewing Company, where wine enthusiasts and beer lovers come together.

Beer #7: Make your way back to the city for your final beer at Hardywood Park Craft Brewery, one of the most iconic and popular Richmond watering holes, which offers a full calendar of entertainment and special events throughout the year.

Head over to the bustling Scott’s Addition neighborhood of Richmond to complete your evening with a delicious meal at Tazza Kitchen.
