Photo Contest with Starr Hill
All month

I like taking pictures, the James River and drinking beer. This hits all those checkmarks. I just wish they were asking for pictures of the James River and not their mural. Marketers gotta market I suppose and the grand prize is pretty darn awesome.

🍻 🚣‍♀️ CONTEST 🚣‍♀️ 🍻 Not only are we supporting the James River Association all month long through our Cheers For Charity program, but we’re also giving you an opportunity to get out on the water with them!
1. TAKE YOUR PHOTO in front of Starr Hill Richmond’s River Mural inside the Beer Hall 📸
2. POST YOUR PHOTO publicly on Facebook, telling us your favorite thing to do on the James River 🌊
3. TAG both Starr Hill Richmond Beer Hall & Rooftop and James River Association in your post 📌
One lucky winner will receive the Grand Prize: a private paddle trip for (4) guests led by James River Association, (4) Love Your River T-shirts, and a $100 gift card to Starr Hill Richmond! The winner will be chosen on 10/3/22. This promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed, administered by, or associated with Facebook. Good luck

New brewery in the works on Patterson in western Henrico – Richmond BizSense

WayGone Brewery is looking to open in spring 2023 in the Canterbury Shopping Center at 10610 Patterson Ave. Renovations on its storefront began recently.

WayGone started in 2016 as a homebrewing operation by Tim Powell and Richard Myers. Myers declined to comment in detail for this story but said they’re looking forward to sharing more details in the future.

Last year, WayGone successfully had the Canterbury Shopping Center rezoned to allow for a brewery. The shopping center is owned by The Wilton Cos., and Wilton Vice President Hunt Gunter said WayGone leased the final available space in the shopping center.
