RVA Beer Explorer: Mural Fest, Oktoberfest, Mystic Markets 90’s Halloween, Spooktoberfest Makers Market

It’s starting to get spooky out there and our beer choices reflect that ominous mood.





Three Notch’d Mural Fest
September 30th

This event was supposed to happen this summer but now it’s a fall event. Yay fall, yay murals, yay beer.

‘Leave Your Mark’ Mural Fest WEATHER UPDATE:
Due to the impending storm, we have unfortunately been forced to condense this weekend’s planned event into a one-day celebration of the Richmond Art Community.
We invite you to join us for our now UPGRADED #artoberVA kickoff event on Friday, which will include a Meet & Greet with our muralists, the release AND toast of ‘Stipple’ Mixed Fruit Sour,’ our collaborative beer w/ Art on Wheels & CultureWorks Richmond , and live music from Richmond local artist Musiqreiv!
Please see our Facebook event (Leave Your Mark Mural Fest) for more specific times as we determine them — let’s make the most of this situation and come together for an unforgettable night!

Not local news but important Wold Cup news for all my footie fans out there.

DC Council approves measure allowing bars to stay open 24 hours during World Cup – WTOP

D.C. Council passed an emergency measure to allow bars, restaurants and breweries in the District to stay open 24 hours a day during the World Cup, which will take place from Nov. 20 to Dec. 18 in Qatar.

Places that sell alcohol normally would close at 2 a.m. on weekdays and at 3 a.m. on weekends.

Now they will be able to sell booze until 4 a.m. and remain open 24 hours, but they would have to pause their alcohol service between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m.
