A new cheese shop is opening inside a Scott’s Addition cidery today. Truckle Cheesemongers has signed a lease agreement with Blue Bee Cider to open a cheese shop at 1320 Summit Avenue.

The market will be adjacent to Blue Bee Cider’s tasting room in a space currently occupied by the cidery’s bottle shop.

The shop will sell cheeses and charcuterie cut to order, grab-and-go cheeses, cheese, and charcuterie boards, and sandwiches to enjoy onsite to complement Blue Bee Cider’s offerings.

Maggie Bradshaw founded Truckle Cheesemongers in 2015.  She studied cheese and wine in Paris while in college. After graduation, she worked for associations in Washington, DC while following her passion working at a cheese shop in Alexandria. Prior to her move to Richmond, she was cheesemonger at specialty grocer Southern Season flagship store in Chapel Hill, NC.

Over the past four years, Truckle Cheesemongers has partnered with Blue Bee Cider to host pairing classes and supply food in its tasting room. Blue Bee Cider is the pickup location for Truckle’s cheese share, a monthly box featuring selections curated by Bradshaw from around the globe.

In addition to classes and its cheese share, Truckle hosts pop-up events across Richmond, supplies wholesale cheeses, caters events, and collaborates to produce beer cheese available at local breweries.

Blue Bee Cider is Virginia’s first urban cidery and was founded in 2012 by Courtney Mailey. The cidery moved to Scott’s Addition in 2016 after a thorough renovation of historic stables formerly used by the city.

Zephyr United recently announced that the Richmond region has been selected to host the 2021 Beer Marketing & Tourism Conference (BMTC). The conference will take place February 23-25, 2021 at the Omni Richmond Hotel in Richmond’s Shockoe Slip Historic District.

“Richmond is a fantastic location for the Beer Marketing & Tourism Conference,” said Allan Wright, President of Zephyr United. “It has an outstanding beer scene and is actively engaged in promoting the region as a beer tourism destination. We are excited to be heading to Richmond in 2021.”

The Beer Marketing & Tourism Conference (BMTC) provides information and education regarding the growing functions and importance of beer marketing, tourism, event planning, and branding. The BMTC is regularly attended by breweries, brewery guilds, destination management organizations, tour operators, marketing agencies and media from around the country. The schedule of events for 2021 will include summits, presentations, and lectures from leading beer industry figures, including a keynote talk from Stone Brewing Co-Founder Greg Koch.

Craft beer tourism is a growing trend in Virginia, with the state calling more than 200 breweries home. Virginia is also one of six states where craft beer has grown the most, up 36% according to C+R Research. The Richmond region is home to nearly forty breweries and in 2018 was named “The World’s Top Beer Destination” by VinePair. Richmond Region Tourism encourages visitors to use the Richmond Beer Trail as their guide when exploring the craft beer scene in the area. After getting their map stamped at five breweries, Richmond Beer Trail followers are given limited-edition Richmond Beer Trail gear.

“We are thrilled to host the Beer Marketing & Tourism Conference 2021,” said Jack Berry, President and CEO of Richmond Region Tourism. “We look forward to saying ‘Cheers’ to BMTC guests in March of 2021 when we’ll feature our fantastic craft beer scene and show them why Richmond was included in the New York Times52 Places to Go in 2020.’”

From the Richmond Times-Dispatch:

Tom Leonard’s Farmer’s Market, which has operated in western Henrico County since 2004, is getting bigger.

The 15,000-square-foot market will nearly double in size when the store expansion project is completed later this year, owner Tom Leonard said.

Construction should begin late in the spring.

The expansion will take over the tented area to the left of the store – where pumpkins and Christmas trees are typically sold.

The added space will enable the market, off Tom Leonard Drive, to expand and move its bakery and deli departments into the new space. The bakery will be able to make fresh-boiled bagels – “the way they do them in New York,” Leonard said.
