What’s happening craft beer lovers of RVA?! Welcome to this week’s “Tapped,” RVA Magazine’s go to weekly craft beer column where you can find all your craft beer-related events, releases, festivals and all the booze news your little hearts desire.

Our cup is overflowing with news this week, but first head over here to check out what awesome brews were released in Richmond last weekend.

We’ve got new beer releases, special holiday and seasonal brews, and special events for you to get to get you into the spirit this holiday season and even entertain you family that has already overstayed their welcome. So hold on to your mugs because we’re getting ready to tap this thing!

Tomorrow night, (Thursday) Hardywood will host a cask night featuring a variant on the Gingerbread stout. A pin of Montezuma’s Chocolate GBS (loads of additional cocoa nibs + cayenne & cinnamon for an extra kick!) will be tapped at 4pm

Triple Crossing’s Fulton brewpub location recently opened and it has cool beer lineup, sweet mural by Mickael Broth, and is serving up Neopolitian style pizza so I suggest heading over there before the holidays to check it out if you havent already. Read more in our article here and a detailed interview in the print issue currently on stands now!

On Christmas Eve, The Veil Brewing Co. will host Crowlers for Christmas from 11 to 4 pm. They will have limited pre-filled crowlers available to go. All merchandise(from the tasting room only, not online) will be 15% off for this one day only.

Lickinghole Creek will release NonSuch IPA on Christmas Eve, a fruity 8% imperial IPA with strong notes of mango, orange and pineapple.

Stone is celebrating with you craft beer lovers right up until Christmas. They have some new holiday hours: Today-Thursday they will be open 11am – 10pm, Friday 12/23: 11am – 11pm, and Christmas Eve: 11am- 5pm so stop by and try their new and first collaborative release, “Give me Stout or Give me Death” a partnership with Ardent Craft Ales, Hardywood and Gov. McAuliffe.
