7 Hills Brewery to open in Shockoe Bottom

You could be sipping a Belle Isle Blonde, a 42nd Street Stout, or a Pony Pasture Pale in 2015.

Named after the seven hills of Richmond the latest planned brewery has close to lowest point in all of Richmond. 7 Hills Brewing Co. plans to open early next year and is taking the unique approach of opening a full restaurant along with it’s brewery at 115 S 15th Street. That location was formerly Stool Pigeons and most recently Major Willy’s.

Richmond BizSense.com has a hint of what to expect.

“On the brewery side, there’s a lot more camaraderie – we’re all trying to make beer the next big thing for Richmond,” he said. “There’s not a lot of camaraderie in restaurants. We’re all competing for the same butts in the same seats.”

Jeff Metz, currently of Legend Brewing, will be the head brewer for 7 Hills.

Renfrow said all his beers’ names will have a Richmond reference with a particular focus on the river. He mentioned a Belle Isle Blonde, a 42nd Street Stout and a Pony Pasture Pale on a list of six or seven beers currently in the works.
