RVA Beer Explorer

RVA Beer Explorer: Doug Dobey Benefit, Mural Fest Update – Moved to Sept. 30th, Punks for Presents

It’s full-on summer now and beer somehow taste better. You also have to drink it quicker if you’re outside because it gets warm so quick.




It’s Time for Da Perculator – A Benefit for Doug Dobey at Castelburg Brewery
July 16th, 3-10 PM

This one is near and dear to my heart. Doug Dobey is a close friend and suffered a stroke. This will help raise funds to cover medical and living expenses. Tons of great bands, raffles and silent auctions. Even if you don’t know Doug this is worth coming out for.

Let’s raise some money for Doug Dobey’s continued recovery!

Doug experienced a health crisis in April. Freelance graphic designers don’t get paid if they’re not working. We want to help raise funds so Doug and his daughter, Harper, can focus on his recovery. There will be great beer, live music and fun raffles!
If you have gift cards or items that could be raffled off, please contact Mark Anderson Brown at [email protected]
If you are an artist, and would like to donate items to be sold at the July 16th fundraiser, please contact Kelly Adler at [email protected]
If you can’t attend, consider donating to his GoFundMe at

Live music by:
– Beex
– X Suckas
– Really Big Good Guys
– Rikki Rakki
– L’Amour deux
– Power Chordz
– Jimmy Catlett

Fun stuff:
– Art for sale
– Silent Auction
– Event T-shirts
– Raffles (including a $500 gift pack from The Richmond Kickers)

This digital trail is a free program for anyone who is at least 21 years of age, with a mobile-exclusive passport that includes 29 cideries from across the Commonwealth.
