Hip-hop and James Brown for the Hardywood Virginia Blackberry

Another weekend, another Hardywood release with beer, music, and food.

Hardywood doesn’t pick your traditional musical acts to play at the brewery and this Saturday is no different for the release of Hardywood Virginia Blackberry. Check out the details below.

A Belgian wheat beer brewed with a touch of rye and a massive addition (over 1,000 lbs. per 40-barrel batch) of plump, ripe blackberries grown by Agriberry in Hanover County, Hardywood Virginia Blackberry offers an assertive fruit character while remaining extremely refreshing. Ruby hued with the bright aroma of fresh bramble berries, this beer’s pleasantly gentle body leads to a rather dry, rounded fruit finish, making it irresistible on a hot summer day.

The tasting room opens at 2pm with Hardywood Virginia Blackberry on draft, in 750mL bottles, Reserve Series four-packs, and local gourmet food vendors (including King Of Pops – Richmond, Estes Bar.B.’Que and Boka Tako Truck!)

In partnership with the Cheats Movement, we’re excited to present The Big Payback, PhotoSynthesizers and Radio B!

5pm – Radio B
Making a huge splash with his latest album, Whole Foods, Radio B presents hip hop in its purest form. His style focuses on lyrics and intelligent wordplay. He is currently working with some of the most respected hip hop artists in the cap city. His music reminds fans of the genre why they fell in love with classic hip hop music.

6pm – Photosynthesizers
PhotoSynthesizers are a live soul-rock/hip-hop band, formed in 2008.

Voted the best hip hop act in Richmond for the last 4 years by the readers of Style Weekly. “Where Rockers meet Beat Boxers”

7pm – The Big Payback: A Tribute to James Brown
The Big Payback is a musical powerhouse, dedicated to recreating the music of James Brown as accurately and as passionately as possible. No stone is left unturned! Their repertoire is filled with all the classic hits you know and love, as well as tons of J.B.’s rarities and B sides.
