They’re throwing a 1 Year Anniversary Festival on Saturday 7/28 from 12-10 PM in the large parking lot across the street from the brewery at 3331 Moore St. This event is sure to be one of Scott’s Addition biggest events to date. They’ll have live music playing all day, including salsa sensation Bio Ritmo, an aptly named “RVA Blues” session from the band Bush League, and much more!

They’ll have all kinds of outdoor activity demos and lessons including fly casting, archery, and slacklining so it’s the perfect chance for you to try something new (I would recommend trying these out before enjoying one too many libations)! They are also hosting several speakers who will discussing topics ranging from urban wildlife management and conservation to creating outdoor experiences for all including those with disabilities. Tickets are $12 for entry and 2 drink tickets, $30 for entry, 6 drink tickets and an anniversary glass, and $5 for designated drivers or those under 21.
