Richmond is a cornucopia of beer-loving people that also love to shop. With the shopping times being moved up even earlier this year you can finish early enough to grab a few beers.
Center of the Universe will open at 12 pm Friday for the release of their annual Black Friday Beer, "Shut Up". COTU’s “Black Friday” brew is an Imperial Stout that has been aged in both Bourbon and Merlot Barrels and then blended together to create an intensely complex and extraordinarily smooth flavor. The beer clocks in at 11.9% and contains a chewy mouthfeel to enhance the wide array of flavors from fig to dark chocolate. Tune out the in-laws, avoid the lines, and take down a big glass of Shut Up!
Castleburg Brewery will be opening at 1 pm on Black Friday for the release of their newest brew, DARK AGES. Dark Ages is their Silver Medal Winning Bishop's Brown Ale, turned IMPERIAL. The Scott's Addition added two gallons of Pure Vermont maple syrup and cinnamon sticks to give this version a woody, earthy flavor that is warming and sweet. Just like French Toast on a cold winter's morning. They will also have Happy Hour specials from 3pm to 8pm.
Triple Crossing will be open from 12-10 and will be offering $2 off all crowler fills.
