Richmond, Virginia has a beer-brewing tradition that dates back over 400 years and is currently home to a thriving craft beer scene. While the COVID-19 pandemic has temporarily changed how we enjoy our favorite beers, this is the perfect time to learn more about the history of Richmond’s beer industry.

Join the Virginia Museum of History & Culture and the experts from Richmond Beeristoric, in partnership with local brewers, to learn about beers enjoyed by the 17th-century English colonists who arrived in this region, the growth of lagers in the 19th century, prohibition and its impact on brewing, and the craft beer revolution.

Local brewers whose libations reflect specific periods in Richmond’s beer history will also provide tasting notes and information about their beers as we raise a socially-distanced pint together. Featured beers and suggested alternatives are included below so you can sip along.

Proceeds from this series will benefit Ardent Helps RVA to provide emergency grants for food service workers in crisis. In addition, all participants will receive a one-time use, special 30% discount to the VMHC Museum Shop, and featured items related to beer and brewing.

Schedule:

  • Week 1 (May 7) – Brewing in the Colonial Era
  • Week 2 (May 14) – The Lager Invasion
  • Week 3 (May 21) – Prohibition: Before and After
  • Week 4 (May 28) – The Craft Beer Revolution

The class is $6 for Members of the VMHC or Richmond Beeristoric; $8 for non-members, and a discount is available for registering for all four, for a total of $20 (members) and $25 (non-members).
