The Best of Richmond 2015: Best Local Brew

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Mark your calendars: Hardywood Brewery’s Gingerbread Stout will be released on November 7 this year. It’s the favorite locally made brew among Richmond Magazine readers.

Some stand in line for hours to get a sip of the imperial milk stout brewed with local ginger and honey.

And Richmonders aren’t the only ones who’ve noticed how good it is. Gingerbread Stout earned a perfect 100 percent score from Beer Advocate.

Needless to say, Hardywood is beaming with pride.

“For us it was kind of, ‘what if we could create a gingerbread cookie in a beer?’ and I think we have done that pretty well,” said Eric McKay, co-owner of the brewery along with Patrick Murtaugh. “And I think people have memories and all warm and fuzzy feelings around the holidays that kind of connect with that flavor.”

It’s that time of year again when we team up with Richmond Magazine to feature some of the people, places and businesses that you voted “The Best of Richmond.”
