Tune in to the RVA Beer Show on WRIR 97.3 FM at noon on Friday, Feb. 10, for a glimpse into the past, present and future of beer and brewing in the Fulton Hill area. Hosts Jay Burnham and Lee Graves talk with Scott Jones and Adam Worcester of Triple Crossing Brewing about their new brewpub on Hatcher Street, plus we look at a moment in time in 1607 when English settlers came upriver from Jamestown carrying beer, wine and brandy to share with Powhatans in a village on Fulton Hill.

About admin

I am a writer. And a musician/songwriter. And a husband/father. I love good beer, the outdoors, the embrace of family, the company of true friends, the telling of a good story and the inner peace derived from quiet reflection in solitude. Recently I have specialized in beer writing. In October 2014, my book, "Richmond Beer: A History of Brewing in the River City" was published by History Press. Another book on beer and brewing, history and current scene, is in the works. Send me an email at As you can see from this site, however, my interests are broader than beer. Spend time, leave a comment or just enjoy. Lee
