Pizza, Puzzles & Pitchers at ACCA Shrine Center
November 4th

I’ve never heard of such a thing but I’m intrigued. Winning prizes for puzzling, drinking, and eating. If I had a bailiwick this would be in it.

Join us for the Acca Shriners 2nd Pizza, Puzzles & Pitchers event! The first one was so successful we have been asked to do another! On Friday, November 4th at 6:00PM teams of 4 people will compete to see who can complete a 300 piece puzzle, eat a large cheese pizza and consume their beverage first. Prizes for the first 3 teams to finish. Lots of fun. A great team building exercise. Spectators invited. This is a public event! Proceeds benefit Acca Shriners. Your entry fee is not considered a charitable donation. Find more information and print off the registration form found at the link below and send it in per the instructions. https://accashriners.com/acca…/pizza-puzzles-and-pitchers/

Hops in the Park at Henricus Park

HARDYWOOD MOVES ‘EVER FORWARD’ WITH LAUNCH OF BEER WITH VIRGINIA NATIONAL GUARD HISTORICAL FOUNDATION

Hardywood Park Craft Brewery is partnering with the Virginia National Guard Historical Foundation for a special release in time for Veterans Day. Ever Forward American Lager is a tribute to the thousands of soldiers and airmen of the Virginia National Guard.

During WWI, the Virginia-based 116th Infantry Regiment coined the phrase “Ever Forward” as a rallying cry during the fierce battle of the Meuse-Argonne. It has since become a touchpoint for National Guard soldiers across the Commonwealth. Hardywood is excited to create this opportunity to raise a glass to those who have served the state and the country with this exclusive beer. “Our focus at Hardywood has always been on Virginia, from the folks who join us in the taproom to the farmers we source ingredients from, so this seemed like a great partnership that builds on our strong Virginia foundation,” said Hardywood President Kate Lee.

The beer itself is a classic American craft lager, made with Virginia-grown and malted 2-row barley from Charlottesville’s Murphy and Rude Malting Company. This crisp and delicious craft beverage is a perfect way to celebrate over 400 years of service.

“We’re thrilled to partner up with Hardywood for the release of Ever Forward American Lager” says Jake Crocker, Executive Director of the Virginia National Guard Historical Foundation. “We’re excited to highlight four centuries of Virginia’s citizen soldiers while raising awareness of our foundation’s upcoming initiatives, including the Museum of The Virginia National Guard,” continued Crocker. Ever Forward will be released in time for Veterans Day on November 11th, with a release party in conjunction with the National Guard and the 116th Infantry Regiment on Friday, November 11th at the Hardywood West Creek location from 5-8pm.
