This weekend and next weekend are both jam-packed with hoppy, fun-filled events. We’ve got the skinny:
This Saturday (5/12) from 1 to 9 p.m. it’s the Virginia Hops and Barley Festival at Historic Malvern. Your ticket, which costs $15 in advance or $20 at the door (a $35 VIP ticket is also available) gets you unlimited tastings of more than 30 Virginia craft beers. There’ll also be live music all day, food and full beers for purchase for $5 each.
Next Sunday (5/20) from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. you’ll have the chance to try some more local beers, along with fare from Richmond’s food carts at the Food Cart Derby. About 20 of Richmond’s best food trucks will be setting up shop at the 17th Street Farmers’ Market. For once, you don’t have to track ‘em down—they’ll all be in one place serving up a variety of cuisines. As if that’s not enough, there’ll also be beers from a dozen local craft breweries for sipping, and live music. For more information, check out Richmond.com’s story about the event.
