    So anyone going to the grand opening on the 16th?

    I've become familiar with the VA brewery scene after my gf started grad school down there a while back. These guys are an exciting addition. I will likely be down in VA around the end of April/early May and plan to check it out.

    Very interested to hear people's thoughts on the beer at the opening.

    lots of people here are very excited for this, and for good reason.
    hopefully the beer matches/exceeds the hype.

    I'm gonna try to hit up the opening. Rva has a tendency to go nuts over these things so it may be better to wait a week. Hopefully I'll see some of you guys there tho

    it was only not great if you had to be there at opening to get the Gold glass. otherwise, the day was awesome with little lines and great beer.

    Glad that it calmed down later in the day... The ridiculousness of the 4 different lines is what made me cringe

    Same here.

    What's kind of sad is the sentiment I'm seeing on some corners of the beer internet that basically seem to be hoping for lines and fast sellouts every week just so this brewery can be "the southeast's Tree House". Apparently trade value based on scarcity is more important than actually being able to readily drink the beer.

    they'll be canning something pretty much every tuesday.
    currently using Old Dominion Mobile canning but I believe they have a order in for their own canning line (or at least that was the plan)

    That's awesome!


    If any of you guys want to swap some cans, holler. I probably won't be up to Richmond until the next Hardywood release.

    Weekly canning runs is cool, but I'm not sure I fully understand the mentality of "no growlers ever" for a brewery, either financially or philosophically.
