Ardent’s Fall American Sour Blend is made from sour blonde and sour red ales, aged independently in oak barrels for ten months, then blended together.

Percolator Southern English Brown Ale w/Coffee Debut w/Variants – Center of the Universe, Saturday

Welcome the newest member of the COTU seasonal family, Percolator! This Southern English Style Brown Ale has been infused with cold-pressed Lamplighter Coffee. This style of brown ale relies on crystal malts to drive the color which results in a smooth caramel flavor with notes of dark fruits, and of course, Coffee. There is little to no roastiness, making it drink more like a latte than a regular coffee. It sits at 7.0% ABV and has around 15 IBU’s.

Percolator will be available in 750ml bottles to go and on draft at the brewery. You can also find our newbie at your local drinking hole or favorite bottle shop!

Richmond BizSense Update on Forest Hill Ave Veil Project

Construction, for the most part, is staying on track.

Every couple weeks one of the neighborhood groups asks about the development at 4910-30 Forest Hill Avenue. The quick answer is that it’s the future home of a Veil Brewing tasting room, apartments, and a mix of retail including Charm School Social Club, Blanchard’s Coffee Roasting Co., Boho Studios and Stella’s Grocery.

The folks at Richmond BizSense have a lengthy update on how things are going in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak. The spoiler and good news is that construction is on schedule to finish up by July but there is a little as expected bad news.

Bice said the tenants’ shell spaces were handed over to them to begin buildout right when the stay-at-home restrictions went into effect, so work on those spaces has been delayed.

“Because all of those businesses are food- or fitness-related, they’re all businesses that would not be allowed to be open now. So the tenant improvements of those has kind of been on pause, awaiting the stay-at-home restrictions to conclude,” Bice said. “It’ll pick up when (the restrictions) are over.”

Here are some renderings of what you can expect the finished project to look like.
