Beer and the history of it here in our lovely city.
Wednesday, November 5th join fellow lovers of the multi-hued liquid love that is beer at Southern Railway Taphouse for the launch of “Richmond Beer: A History of Brewing in the River City”.

Author and Richmond resident Lee Graves will impart a bit of beery wisdom and there will be both free food and signed copies of the book to purchase. The official release date of the book is November 4th.
The story of beer and brewing in Richmond is a reflection of the well-documented and revered place the River City holds in the nation’s history. English colonists imbibed together on the banks of the James River. During the Civil War, a brewery was adjacent to a hospital. Beyond historical brews such as the Krueger Brewing Company and Richbrau beer, Richmond is no stranger to the vibrant craft beer culture thriving across the nation. Area brewers, including Hardywood Park Craft Brewery, Legend Brewing Company, Midnight Brewery and Strangeways Brewing, make Richmond a beer lover’s paradise. Grab a pint and join author and beer columnist Lee Graves as he recounts the frothy history of Richmond beer.
