Lilly Pad permit would limit live music volume, hours at Varina venue – Richmond BizSense

A provisional-use permit proposed for the restaurant and the larger Kingsland Marina would limit live music to certain hours and decibel levels, among other conditions that county staff is recommending after determining that the expanded restaurant had outgrown the parameters of a previous permit.

Three Notch’d Brewing to spill into adjacent space in Scott’s Addition – Richmond BizSense

Three Notch’d Brewing Co. is planning to expand its space at 2930 W. Broad St. to include the addition of a restaurant, according to documents filed with the city. The extra room came available after two adjacent spaces were recently left vacant by Red Goat Pizza and Richmond Wine Station.

How these Richmond craft breweries are supporting Ukraine through beer – RTD

After Russia invaded Ukraine, a Lviv craft brewery with the name of Pravda stopped making beer and started brewing Molotov cocktails.

Soon after, the brewer called on fellow brewers around the world to show solidarity with Ukraine by brewing one of Pravda’s beers for charity. Pravda, which is the Russian word for “truth,” made that possible by posting its recipes online.

Several Richmond craft breweries have joined the “Brew for Ukraine” initiative, which aims to raise money for humanitarian relief through sales of the beer and to call attention to the plight of Ukrainians.

Drink Like a Brewer at Stone Brewing

Lager Jam at Triple Crossing Fulton

In the age of IPA, the lager is often underappreciated. This weekend it’ll be superappreciated. I feel the opportunity for a Lag Jam, Log Jam pun was missed somewhere in here though.

Starting at 12pm until supplies runs out, Cask, Keg, and Can pours of your favorite Triple Crossing Lagers and visiting breweries. Free admission. Drink tickets sold at the door. Live Music by The Hot Seats. Additional details coming soon.

Veil Brewing 6th Anniversary at all tasting rooms
April 26th – May 1st, 6PM

The brewery that I used to think was just about whales and hype has proven me wrong over the years. Especially once one moved within walking distance. So I’m happy to wish them a wonderful 6th Anniversary. They’re doing special releases all week. The best way to find out what’s going down is on their regular Facebook page and their Instagram.

We are excited to celebrate our 6th Anniversary at all locations starting April 26th! We’ve got over 20 awesome beers planned to release and a killer food lineup!

You won’t want to miss this year. 🐈🌿👁

This release will be in person, first come first served. NO SHIPPING. NO PROXIES. More releases to announce so stay tuned in to our social media!

Artisan Market at Main Line Brewery
May 1st, 1-5PM

Go and pick up a few artisans for the wall or foyer. An artisan can really pull together a foyer.

How Breweries of All Sizes Are Getting Creative With Sustainable Initiatives – VinePair

Hardywood Park Craft Brewery became the first brewery in Virginia completely powered by renewable energy and Cheers Virginia has this quote.

Patrick Murtaugh, co-founder and brewmaster at Hardywood, feels that doing so is our collective responsibility — plus there’s the growing financial incentive. “Protecting the environment is not only important to us, but to our customers as well,” he says. “Customers not only appreciate our efforts, they expect them.”

From the article:

Executive director of the North American Craft Maltsters Guild Jesse Bussard (who goes by she/they pronouns), says climate change remains one of the most concerning threats that the trade faces in modern times. “It’s affecting the capacity for us to grow barley,” she says, pointing to Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, and Colorado as the top states for barley production which, in 2021, collectively faced the worst crop output in recent history. Bussard believes that scientific trials, like Heineken’s attempt to reduce agriculture-related emissions by 33 percent by 2030, are promising, but not happening fast enough.
