12 Month Apple Brandy & Bourbon Barrel-Aged Blended Imperial Stout
A word from the Virginia Beer Company: "We brew beers for all and we share cheers with all. As such, we have joined numerous brewers around the world to participate in the Black is Beautiful initiative. Launched by our friends at Weathered Souls Brewing Co., Black is Beautiful is a collaborative effort amongst the brewing community and its customers, in an attempt to bring awareness to the injustices that many people of color face daily and to show that the brewing community is an inclusive place for everyone. For our version of Black is Beautiful, VBC will take the original open source Imperial Stout recipe developed by Weathered Souls, and blend Waypost Imperial Stout vintages aged for 12 months in Apple Brandy barrels and Willett Bourbon barrels to showcase flavors coming together from across the country. We stand with our colleagues, our friends, and our neighbors; and we will do what we can to lead by example."

The census is in: if we were trapped on a desert island, this is the beer we'd take with us. A dense dry-hop with Sabro + Motueka creates luscious layers of lovely lupulin-infused liquid. Notes of lime zest from Motueka combine with prominent flavors of coconut from Sabro (our first time using this dynamic hop variety) -- creating a smooth and aromatic island-inspired India Pale Ale to be enjoyed by one and all, whether hiding away in a desert paradise or simply staying put at home.
Real unfiltered lager crafted from the finest hops and barley malt. Here in Richmond, we’re not afraid of doing things the hard way. We are a community of artists, creators, and innovators. We respect time-honored tradition, craftsmanship, and quality over quantity. We go the extra mile, and when the job is done, we know we’ve earned the right to kick back and enjoy a cold one. For a hard day’s work, and whatever follows, we give you Richmond Lager. We are proud to continue supporting Virginia agriculture. Virginia-grown Cascade hops constitute 20% of the hop bill for Richmond Lager, lending subtle notes of citrus in the finish. A portion of the grain bill incorporates Virginia-grown and malted 2-row barley.

The best kind of beer is the kind shared with friends...and it just so happens that VBC brewed up one with their friends from Ocelot Brewing Company! Citra and Centennial hops (including whole leaf Centennial) pair with Ocelot's house IPA yeast strain to create an unbelievably flavorful yet drinkable India Pale Ale. Originally brewed in celebration of Phish's return to The Mothership in Hampton in October 2018, we're bringing this one back to celebrate craft beer camaraderie through thick & thin.

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. These efforts have culminated recently with the symbolic return of the endangered Atlantic sturgeon, a prehistoric, yet majestic behemoth of a fish, spotted as far up the James River as the fall line in Richmond. Your purchase of this beer supports the James River Association. Thank you for being a part of the Great Return.
