The Great Return - IPA
West Coast Style IPA. Bold, resinous and bursting with bright grapefruit aroma, this IPA is a tribute to the decades of hard work by conservationists to restore the James River as a bounty of vibrant aquatic life, eco-friendly recreational activity, and in our case, fresh brewing water. These efforts have culminated recently with the symbolic return of the endangered Atlantic sturgeon, a prehistoric, yet majestic behemoth of a fish, spotted as far up the James River as the fall line in Richmond. Your purchase of this beer supports the James River Association. Thank you for being a part of The Great Return. In our commitment to James River conservation, Hardywood will contribute $10 per barrel of The Great Return to The James River Association, to support their mission to be the guardian of the James River. The JRA’s core programs include Watershed Restoration, Education and Outreach, River Advocacy and the Riverkeeper Program.

Honey I Shrunk The Nibs - Stout
Our second ever Imperial Stout - this time brewed with some pretty special malts, including; Honey, Dextrin & Aromatic Malt to add a gentle, biscuity sweetness and complexity. We introduced Honey during the boil and again during fermentation to add a delicate honey aroma and flavour. Cacao Nibs added toward the end of fermentation leave the beer with a smooth, dark chocolate finish.
