RTD dines at The Cask and Hardywood Sidamo pub crawl

The Cask is good and pub crawl starts at 5:30.

I’ll be honest, The Cask is one of my new favorites. The beer selection is great, I can get some food, it’s extremely casual,  and it’s close to home. That’s a whole bunch of win in a pint glass. RTD restaurant reviewer Dana Craig has had a similar experience. Read her full review.

“This is like a wine bar for guys,” said my dining companion as we settled into a small table near the garage-door style windows of The Cask Café & Market on a recent Friday night.

“When you and your girlfriends want to go to Carytown and play oenophile at Secco, I can come here and relax with my friends,” he continued.

Today Thursday, February 6th, The Cask is participating in a Hardywood Sidamo Coffee Stout pub crawl. The Cask, Commercial Taphouse, and Portrait House will walk you through the miracle that is Hardywood Sidamo Coffee Stout.


  • 5:30 pm – Commercial Taphouse & Grill will feature a pin of our Russian Imperial Stout, the base beer and starting point for Sidamo Coffee Stout
  • 6:45  pm – The Cask Cafe will feature a pin of Sidamo Coffee Stout, brewed with beans roasted at Lamplighter Roastingcompany right here in RVA
  • 7:30 – Portrait House will feature a pin of Bourbon Sidamo aged in Jim Beam barrels, the final stage for Sidamo Coffee Stout
