When it comes to beer names, Richbrau is one of the most iconic in Richmond. It started as the most popular post-Prohibition beer of Home Brewing Company, became the banner identity of Richbrau brewpub in Shockoe Slip, and now is about to enter a third phase under new ownership. Join Jay Burnham and me as we talk about Richbrau, barleywines and more on the latest edition of the RVA Beer Show on WRIR 97.3 FM.
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. My most recent adventure is "Virginia Beer: A Guide from Colonial Days to Craft's Golden Age" published fall 2018 by University of Virginia Press. 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.

As you can see from this site, however, my interests are broader than beer. Spend time, leave a comment or just enjoy.
