It's finally here! We've been waiting patiently (well some of us more than others) for Hardywood to start sending their beers down to North Carolina and we're finally able to sell their awesome beer! Bottles and Cans are already arriving in the shop, but we're going to set aside a whole day to feature them on draft. As of right now we have 6 awesome kegs to pour with maybe more on the way! The kegs will be on draft as soon as we open on Friday and we'll be pouring glasses and growlers of all the kegs!
PILSNER - Crisp, clean and incomparably quaffable, Hardywood Pils sparkles a brilliant shade of gold with a rich, cloud-white head. Hand crafted with only the finest European pilsner malt and German noble hops.
VIPA - The embodiment of true Virginia hospitality, Hardywood VIPA offers alluring tropical aromatics, a refreshingly delicate body and a bright, juicy finish. Heirloom Virginia barley rounds out the malt bill and creates a perfect sense of balance with a dose of citrusy Virginia hops.
THE GREAT RETURN - Bold, resinous and bursting with bright grapefruit aroma, this IPA is a tribute to the decades of hard work by conservationists to restore the James River as a bounty of vibrant aquatic life, eco-friendly recreational activity, and in our case, fresh brewing water.
TROPICATION - Heaps of Mosaic and Nelson Savin hops send a wave of tropical fruit aromatics that burst on the palate with notes of passion fruit, lychee, mango, pineapple and lime.
PEACH TRIPEL - Bright and effervescent, showcasing a delightful balance of fruity esters and spicy phenols that harmonize with subtle notes of white pepper and honeysuckle. Our Peach Tripel is refermented on apricots and heaps of yellow peaches, delivering a luscious stone fruit character with a pleasantly dry finish.
BOURBON CRU - Bourbon Barrel Cru displays a rich mahogany hue with a medium body and brilliant clarity after months of barrel aging. The maturity and melding of flavors brought on by the freshly drained bourbon whiskey barrels lend an extraordinary sense of harmony to Bourbon Barrel Cru. Almond, toffee and oaky vanilla give way to notes of dark cherries and raisins. Subtle hints of plum are greeted by caramel overtones for a smooth, robust and warming finish.
