Enjoy local food and craft beer at the Swine and Brine Festival this Friday

Swine, brine, and #rvadine descend upon Ardent Craft Ales in Scott’s Addition Friday night.

Some of Richmond’s best local craft beer and food purveyors are coming together this Friday night in Scott’s Addition for a squealin’ good time. Ardent Craft Ales is hosting their first ever outdoor beer and food festival from 4:00 – 8:00 PM.

Along with a long list of Ardent’s craft brews, listed below, local restaurants including The Roosevelt, Metzger Bar and Butchery, Saison, and ZZQ will be cooking up whole hogs and grilling other pork favorites and sides. Rappahannock Oyster Co. will offer steamed and roasted oysters, plus crab cakes. King of Pops will top it all off with handmade popsicles.

Tickets are $18 per person and include two tickets redeemable for food or beer, as well as a Swine & Brine t-shirt. Additional tickets will be available for purchase at the event for $5 each. The event is 21+ and proper ID must be presented at the door.

Parking will be available in the Moore Street lot and on surrounding streets, and volunteers will be on hand to help with parking, but event organizers encourage attendees to take public transportation or taxis to and from the event due to limited parking.
