Ardent Craft Ales Dark Rye

Stout – Imperial / 9.8% ABV / 45 |BU / 294 CAL / Richmond, VA /

Dark Rye is an American imperial stout brewed with rye and chocolate malts. Notes of dark chocolate and a roasty malt base balance an earthy, spicy character from the rye addition in this big, full-bodied stout.

Armed Forces Preamble

Lager – American / 4.2% ABV / 126 CAL / Norfolk, VA /

Basic City Beer Lost Jewel of Orion

IPA – New England / 6% ABV / 180 CAL / Waynesboro, VA / 00

Approachable Hazy IPA brewed with Citra, Nelson, and Rakau

BrewDog 5AM Saint

Red Ale – American Amber / 5% ABV / 35 IBU / 150 CAL / Ellon, Aberdeenshire /

Buy the ticket, take the ride. 5AM Red Ale is 5 malts, 5 hops and 5% abv. But that’s where the order ends. Jump in and you’ll find berry bouncing off marmalade clashing with caramel cosying up to chocolate buzzing off spice sizzling with toast laced with lychee and colliding with biscuit.

As malty as it is hoppy. As anarchic as it is structured. Bitterness and sweetness, all neatly messed up in a triumph of pure chaos. Perfect, baffling symmetry. Go fathom 5AM.


Maris Otter, Caramalt, Munich Malt, Crystal and Dark Crystal Malts


Nelson Sauvin, Amarillo

Dry Hops: Simcoe, Cascade, Centennial, Ahtanum, Nelson Sauvin

BrewDog Jack Hammer

IPA – American / 7.2% ABV / 250 IBU / 216 CAL / Elon, Aberdeenshire

Press the button, go ahead. What are you waiting for? Your mama’s not coming this time. Don’t slow down. Hammer it. Start with huge grapefruit aroma. Pile on more bitterness than the human palate (or nipple) can detect, ride the anarchy and caramel craziness and let the devastatingly bitter finish drill straight through your taste buds.

Put a bullet in the head of mediocrity, raise hell and revel in bitter craft awesomeness. This beer is the end of the line. The hopped-up, puckered mouthed extreme of craft brewing. This beer is bitter. Very bitter. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Malt: Extra Pale

Hops: Amarillo, Centennial, Citra, Columbus, Simcoe

BrewDog USA Choco Cherry

Stout -American / 7% ABV / 210 CAL / Canal Winchester, OH

Chocolate Cherry Stout

BrewDog USA Sorry I’m Latte

Stout -Coffee / 7% ABV / 210 CAL / Canal Winchester, OH

Vanilla Espresso Stout

Brothers Craft Dukes IPA

IPA -American / 6% ABV / 180 CAL / Harrisonburg, VA

Calvert Black Eyed Susan

Lager -Dark / 6% ABV / 180 CAL / Upper Marlboro, MD

This T’Mave is a soft, yet full bodied Czech Black Lager with hints of coffee and dark, roasted malts.

Calvert El Coquito

Stout -American / 8.7% ABV / 261 CAL / Upper Marlboro, MD

El Coquito is a 8.7% blonde stout that pours golden and has a full body to resemble the Puerto Rican holiday drink. From the aroma and the initial taste, El Coquito is bursting with coconut and pairs well with the cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. The milk sugar helps with the body to leave just the right amount of residual sugar and a mouthfeel of the creamy coconut drink.

Captain Lawrence Peach Cobbler

Brown Ale – Other / 8.56 ABV / 255 CAL / Elmsford, NY

Imperial Brown Ale brewed with peach and graham cracker.

Cigar City Brewing® Florida Man™

IPA – Imperial / 8.5% ABV / 50 |BU / 255 CAL / Tampa, FL

The world needs heroes, and in our home state of Florida only a very special hero will do. A hero with a shark tooth around his neck, a Grim Reaper tattoo on his arm, and a rap sheet longer than his mama’s mustache. A hero who’s forgotten more about amateur taxidermy and alligator rasslin’ than you’ll ever know. What better way to pay tribute to our beloved Florida Man than with a big ol’ Double India Pale Ale brewed with a nearly-criminal amount of hops and a moderate bitterness that just about matches Florida Man’s general disposition. This hopped-up whopper of a beer is big in character and guaranteed to sear itself into your memory, just like “the world’s worst superhero,” Florida Man.

Cigar City Brewing® Maduro Brown Ale

Brown Ale – English / 5.5% ABV / 25 IBU / 200 CAL / Tampa, FL

Maduro is a Northern English-style brown ale with some American affectations. Maduro is higher in alcohol than the common English brown ale and features flaked oats in the malt bill which imparts a silky body and works to mesh the roasted, toasted and chocolate components together in Maduro’s complex malt profile. The end result is a remarkably full-flavored yet approachable and sessionable brown ale that pairs well with mild to medium cigars.

Crooked Run Fermentation Scorpion

IPA – American / 7% ABV / 60 IBU / 210 CAL / Sterling, VA

West Coast Style IPA with Centennial, Colombus, & Amarillo Hops. Dank and piney hop character with a sharp clean finish.

Delirium – Hughe Deliria

Belgian Strong Golden Ale / 8.5% ABV / 32 IBU / 255 CAL / Melle, Vlaanderen

Colour and appearance: a pale blonde colour and fine creamy-white head which clings to the glass.

Flavour: A pleasant sparkling carbonate content produces a soft, full taste perception. The aroma is very balanced with a fruity, flowery background and an initial Chardonnay impression which evolves into a spicy, mild aroma of hops.

Taste: Full-bodied and balanced with fruity tones of apple and Chardonnay grapes. Deliria has a fine, mild bitterness in its aftertaste and a splendid, round feel in the mouth which evolves well.

Special beer brewed once a year to mark International Women’s Day.

Hardywood Park Fightin’ Hokies Lager

Lager – Helles / 5% ABV / 150 CAL / Richmond, VA

Brewed in collaboration between Virginia Tech’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, one of the top programs of its kind nationwide, and the international award-winning Hardywood Park Craft Brewery, Fightin’ Hokies Lager is a tribute to the fighting spirit that unites us. Virginia Tech and Hardywood share a history of giving back, environmental stewardship, and the pursuit of excellence. Their partnership has culminated in a beer of unparalleled quality, brewed in Virginia with renewable resources.

Clean and crisp, with pleasant aromatics of fresh bread, a subtle underlying floral note from noble hops, and a touch of malt sweetness in the finish, this golden Munich-style helles lager is cold-conditioned for weeks, resulting in an exceptionally refreshing beer. We raise a glass to you, the remarkable people that make Virginia Tech what it is today. Go Hokies!!

Hardywood Park Richmond Dark Lager

Lager -Dark / 5% ABV / 150 CAL / Richmond, VA

If you enjoy Richmond’s Authentic Craft Lager in Hardywood Richmond Lager, you can’t miss Hardywood Richmond Dark Lager this winter season.

Richmond Dark Lager provides the same refreshing and crisp experience with an ever so slight sweet dark malt characteristic. Although visually darker then its golden bubbly brother, Richmond Dark Lager does not have the roasty characteristics you might find in a beer this color. Raise your glass with us and try a Richmond Dark Lager!

Right Proper Häxan

Porter – Other / 7% ABV / 210 CAL / Washington, DC

Named after the silent era Scandinavian documentary on witchcraft, Häxan is brewed with an assortment of roasted malts and oats. Full bodied with round notes of coffee and dark chocolate.

Right Proper Lil Wit

Wheat Beer – Witbier / 5% ABV / 150 CAL / Washington, DC

Lil Wit is a refreshing Belgian-style White Ale brewed with an abundance of red wheat, white wheat, torrifed wheat, and oats. The beer was gently hopped with Tettnang and Perle, then finished with juniper and the classic spices coriander and orange peel.

Right Proper Senate Beer

Lager -American / 4.7% ABV / 141 CAL / Washington, DC /

Senate Beer is a recreation of the Christian Heurich Brewing Company’s flagship lager of the same name. The recipe was developed by Oregon State’s Department of Fermentation Sciences, based on a 26-page laboratory report from 1948. The first batch was produced at Right Proper Brewing in Shaw. The 4.7% post-Prohibition lager is brewed with flaked corn and hopped with Oregon varietals available in the 1940s.

Silver Branch Cloud Nine

Wheat Beer – Hefeweizen / 5% ABV / 150 CAL / Silver Spring, MD

A traditional German Weizen yeast gives our Hefeweizen complex flavors of banana and clove, while finishing crisp and satisfying. Pour one today to help you reach your own personal Cloud Nine.

Silver Branch Dr. Juicy

IPA – New England / 6.9% ABV / 207 CAL / Silver Spring, MD

After earning his M.D. and Ph. D, Juicy turned to his life’s true work: having fun in the sun and spreading good vibes! Like a beer-loving Midas, he can’t help but transform everything he touches, leaving Gemütlichkeit and chill goodwill in his wake. Treat yourself to a tropical breeze of citrus aromas and notes of sweet, tangy fruit.

Silver Branch Glass Castle

Pilsner -Czech / 5% ABV / 150 CAL / Silver Spring, MD

A delicate balance of spicy Czech hops and golden malt make Glass Castle flavorful, yet eminently drinkable. We use soft water, imported floor-malted barley, Saaz hops and traditional brewing techniques to give you a classic Bohemian Pilsener that is smooth yet flavorful.

Silver Branch Gnome For the Holidays

Farmhouse Ale – Saison / 7.6% ABV / 228 CAL / Silver Spring, MD

The Gnomes LOVE the holidays and have long been frustrated that elves are seen as the official holiday “diminutive being”, but they don’t let it get them down! Instead, they celebrate with this strong holiday Saison, brewed with Belgian candi sugar for a bit of caramel complexity alongside the classic Saison pepper and spice yeast character.

The Virginia Beer Co. (VBC) Evil Santa (2022-2023)

Stout – Milk / 7% ABV / 210 CAL / Williamsburg, VA

Your favorite Holiday Milk Stout with some Fresh New Wrapping! – – – Evil Santa comes ’round but once a year, and each year he brings a fleet of 16 oz. cans for all the good girls & boys to enjoy!

With hearty additions of Flaked Oats and Milk Sugar – with dashes of Cinnamon, Nutmeg, and Allspice – this warming Holiday Milk Stout is oh so smooth with a hint of spice and everything nice on the finish. Sure to be enjoyed throughout the festive winter season…whether you’ve been naughty or nice!

Join us annually for the return of this seasonal 7.0% ABV Holiday Milk Stout – followed by a sleigh of limited variant releases – before Evil Santa once again disappears for another long winter’s nap. #TisTheSeason

Tröegs Independent Double Blizzard

IPA – Imperial / 8.3% ABV / 249 CAL / Hershey, PA

This is Blizzard of Hops… turned up to 11. For Double Blizzard, we used a cooler temperature for the kettle hop additions, softening the character of the Centennial, Chinook and El Dorado. On the cold side, we dry-hopped with four pounds per barrel of Chinook and Galaxy. At 8.3% ABV, we’re into semi-hazy Double IPA territory, and we like it here.

We taste: huge citrus and pineapple notes, soft pine

Tröegs Independent Troegenator Doublebock

Bock-Doppelbock / 8.2% ABV / 25 IBU / 246 CAL / Hershey, PA

Monks had fasting figured out. No food? No problem. Just drink a Double Bock. Thick and chewy with intense notes of caramel, chocolate and dried stone fruit, ‘Nator (as we call him) serves as a tribute to this liquid bread style.
