Virginia Craft Beer has the story of Castleburg: A Modern Fairy Tale with Medieval Trappings

Sorry no dragons or swords rising out of a lake in this tale, just beer.




Gotta love a good headline. Castleburg is right around the corner from beer behemoth Hardywood. Although Castleburg is small it’s beers are mighty. With a focus on the older styles and recipes focusing on tradition rather than the latest trend. I’ve only been once but the folks were very welcoming and it’s well worth the stop.

You’ve heard this one before—sort of: Boy meets girl. Girl gives boy a home brewer’s kit. Boy makes beer and rises rapidly through the ranks of local home brewers.

Boy and girl open a craft brewery and live happily ever after. Although there’s a little more to it than this brief Reader’s Digest version and the ultimate outcome is yet to be determined, this is the basic story behind Castleburg Brewery and Taproom, one of Richmond’s newest, and smallest, craft breweries.
