Fastest-growing breweries, anniversaries and Bière de Garde

So much good stuff for Jay Burnham and me to talk about this week on the RVA BEER Show, WRIR-FM 97.3.

Tuesdays always draw a line at The Veil for the weekly can release, but this week is special as the Scott’s Addition brewery celebrates another anniversary. Lee Graves photo

Three Virginia breweries made the list of 50 Fastest Growing Breweries in the U.S. The Veil is celebrating another anniversary, joining Triple Crossing, Legend and other local breweries toasting another year of growth. Plus we take a look at Biére de Garde, a complex Belgian farmhouse style dating to 1888 that straddles the line of ales and lagers. Click the link below to listen to the April 20 broadcast.

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, "Richmond Beer: A History of Brewing in the River City" was published by History Press. "Charlottesville Beer: Brewing in Jefferson's Shadow," followed in January 2017. A third book, this one a statewide Virginia beer book combining history and profiles of current craft breweries, is with University of Virginia Press and slated for publication in 2018. 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
