Cheers to Ten Years – Celebrating Ten Years of Brewing With Purpose
Hardywood Park Craft Brewery, one of Richmond’s oldest and the state’s largest independently owned craft brewery is celebrating ten years this October with a slate of events highlighting our brewing and community partnerships.
10/22 – None Of This Makes Sense Release (Both Locations)
None Of This Makes Sense is back! This New England Style DIPA is full of juicy hop character, low bitterness, and a bit of haze for the perfect beer to enjoy outside on a warm day. NOTMS is brewed with Mosaic and El Dorado hops that lend pleasant notes of pineapple and citrus. With a smooth body and soft finish, maybe it does make sense.
10/23 – Cheers to Ten Years Anniversary Celebration (West Creek) & Trickery Release (Both Locations)
We can’t believe the day is here – Hardywood is celebrating 10 whole years of Brewing With Purpose! Our 10th Anniversary Party will be on October 23rd at West Creek starting at 12pm. It will be a day of live music from local favorites like Good Shot Judy and 64 Crayons, food trucks all day, beer releases like Trickery, Super Singel (an amped up version of the first Hardywood beer), a 10th Anniversary special barrel blend, plus some classic Hardywood brews from through the years including Bourbon Sidamo and Chocolate Heat. Plan to end the evening with a festive fireworks display to celebrate! This will be a ticketed event with proceeds going towards charities Hardywood has supported over the years such as James River Association, Capital Trail Foundation, Goochland Cares, and more. We hope to see you there! Purchase your ticket to the event here.
10/30 – Dragging The Decade Party: Celebrating 2011 with Virginia Pride (Richmond)
Take a trip back in time where Kesha and Adele ruled the radio, statement scarves and chunky necklaces were the trends, and Hardywood brewed their first beer! In partnership with Virginia Pride, we’re giving a tribute to the last decade. Dragging Through the Decade will be a Halloween party like you’ve never seen! Hardywood’s Richmond location will have a DJ spinning the hits of 2011, live performances from Glitterally, Can’t Even before the main event, some of Richmond’s favorite queens will grace the stage for your delight. The show will be hosted by Michelle Livigne with performances from Sweet Pickles and Wette Midler. A suggested donation of $10 will directly support Virginia Pride. This will be a limited capacity event and will require proof of vaccination or negative COVID test upon entry as it will be indoors.

10/9 – Rum Pumpkin Release (Both Locations)
Hardywood Rum Barrel Pumpkin combines the nostalgic flavors and aromas of autumn with a soul warming, blackstrap molasses laced finish that can only be achieved through months of maturation in Caribbean dark rum barrels. Pleasantly mellow up front, Hardywood Rum Barrel Pumpkin offers a crescendo of pumpkin pie spices that are emboldened by the barrel aging process, and finishes with subtly sweet, lingering notes of brown sugar.
