Small Business Saturday is upon us! The weekend after Thanksgiving is the biggest shopping weekend of the year. The 2nd annual Small Business Saturday wants people to shop locally! So I think that if you are going to shop locally, you should drink locally as well! Mom told me that Richmond Virginia has a strong brewing history and that there are more and more local Virginia Breweries popping up all the time!

Since coming to Richmond, mom and I have both been fans of Legend Brewery!

There is another new brewery in Richmond VA that mom has been to but I haven’t had a chance to visit. She says their Singel is pretty amazing and wants to go back…I think a visit with me to Hardywood Park Craft Brewery  is in order!

But lets not forget about the other Virginia breweries..soooo many to list them all but we’ll list a few and as you are out shopping, check what is on tap at local pubs and restaurants ! A great tip from this savvy Malinois is to check the window for a sticker that looks like this:

If you see one, it means there is a local Virginia brew in bottle or on tap in that establishment.

TASTE THE LOCAL is an advocacy group set up to promote local beer in the city of Richmond, Virginia. We work with local breweries, businesses, and charities to increase the presence of local beer culture within the river city.

Our goal is to make Richmond the heart of Virginia craft beer. To intertwine local beer with RVA’s rich local art, music, and food culture. We believe that we can make Richmond a destination spot for beer lovers in VA through the promotion of local breweries.

So check out some of these Virginia Breweries and keep yourself sane during the holiday season!
