As part of a 3-year anniversary kick-off the opposite of bogus, the Virginia Beer Co. has teamed with the righteous dudes & dudettes from Hardywood to collaborate on “Michael & Jason‘s Excellent Adventure” – a Gin & Tonic inspired Double India Pale Ale brewed with Juniper Berries, Coriander, and Lemon Peel.
“Michael & Jason’s Excellent Adventure is a nuanced Double IPA inspired by two of our favorite 757 & 804 sales dudes and designed after a traditional Gin & Tonic cocktail. Brewed with Juniper Berries, Coriander, and Lemon Peel, this recipe also features a healthy dose of Huell Melon, Mandarina Bavaria, and Citra hops for a layered beer drinking experience, ” comments Virginia Beer Co. Brewmaster Jonathan Newman.
To celebrate this historic pairing, the breweries will be rocking out with Nathan Lienard Music from 2-5 pm to combine with the bodacious offerings of the area’s newest food truck, NOSH modern mobile bistro.
Virginia Beer Co. Co-Founder Chris Smith waxes poetic: “After I quit my job to open a brewery – and well before Virginia Beer Co. was even a finished business plan – Eric & Patrick (Co-Founders of Hardywood) were kind enough to let me volunteer at their first brewery to get a glimpse at the production experience I couldn’t find elsewhere. Collaborating with Hardywood at our own facility – to invite them in as they invited me – has been a truly excellent experience.”
Draft. Cans. Food. Friendship. Be excellent to each other. Brew excellent things together. Share excellence with everyone.
We must be from the future…because your St. Patrick’s Day plans RULE.
