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.

Read the full story at Virginia Craft Beer.

This isn’t your typical mom’s mac & cheese. If your mom makes mac & cheese like this we would like to be adopted.

Over the holiday break two more restaurants announced their plans to close up until spring.

23rd & Main Kitchen and Taproom posted the following to Facebook.

Postbellum made a similar statement also on Facebook although you stated they hope to open in two months.

Postbellum will be going on a two month vacation in order to to give our staff a much needed period of rest, and to prepare for our spring service. —We hope to see you this weekend, as we are extending our happy hour from 3:30 – 8PM & offering delicious brunch/dinner specials. Otherwise, we will see you when we return on March 1st! Stay safe, RVA

Helen’s (2527 W Main Street) announced on Facebook and Reddit that they’re going to close up until 2021. The re-open date will be determined once we’re through this mess of a pandemic. They’ve been closed to indoor dining since March and just went back to takeout only about 2 weeks ago. Hit up that Reddit thread for more details.
