Brew Tying at Steam Bell Beer Works
January 5th

You will not be tying beers. You will be tying flys to fool gullible fish so you can put a hook in their mouth.

Join us in our taproom every 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month for Brew Tying, a fly tying event.

Meet local fly fishers and learn, practice, or perfect the art of fly tying. All ages welcome (must be 21 to drink). If you’re a beginner, we’d love to help you get started.

Richmond gets a bit of good press from San Diego Beer News. The news is a little old the article is from November but the descriptions of the local breweries is spot on. Plus there is a handy map to pass along to your visiting beerheads.

The Old Dominion’s capital city is a destination for craft-beer lovers seeking quality, quantity and variety – San Diego Beer News

Smack dab in the heart of Virginia lies a vivid brewing scene that’s among the East Coast’s finest and draws visitors from across the Old Dominion as well as neighboring states and the District of Columbia. But it wasn’t always that way in Richmond. Just over a decade ago, the city was home to only one brewery, but thanks to 2012 legislation allowing breweries to sell beer at their breweries, an ale-obsessed, boundary-pushing restauranteur and pioneers who jumped to the pro ranks from the James River Homebrewers club, RVA now boasts nearly 30 brewery-owned venues.
