The Best Craft Beer
Hardywood Cream Ale, Hardywood Park Craft Brewery
2408-2410 Ownby Lane, Richmond
Did you know Richmond was the first place ever to sell a canned beer? According to Hardywood, that beer was a cream ale. In 2013, the beer experts decided to pay homage to history with their own take on this German-style beer. The result: an invigorating, smooth-bodied local favorite, perfect for hot days by the river and hot nights on the town.
