The capital of Virginia, Richmond is both a surprisingly “alternative” city and one of the state’s craft beer hotspots. There are about twenty craft breweries in the city. A short while ago, I had the opportunity to visit one of them, Triple Crossing Brewing. I wasn’t disappointed.
Triple Crossing Brewing in Richmond, Virginia
Housed in an unassuming brick building, Triple Crossing Brewing has a spacious indoor area and a fun outdoor terrace. The entire brewhouse is visible from the tasting room, which is a feature that I personally always appreciate in a craft brewery.
The seating areas are made up of tall metal chairs and wooden tables, giving the place a basic yet stylish look. The overall setup of the brewery is pretty nicely done, keeping things spacious while also giving everything a cozy vibe. This was one of those breweries where, if I lived nearby, I could see myself becoming a regular.
Their beer, too, was excellent. I had two pints—one of the Double Falcon Smash IPA and one of the Night Lands Stout. Both were superb. I was really impressed.
Even though I only spend about an hour and a half at Triple Crossing, I immediately liked the atmosphere and the “welcome home” kind of vibe that was going on there. I would definitely recommend this craft brewery to all beer lovers visiting Richmond.
In addition to beers, they also serve grilled cheese sandwiches, which, honestly, is about as perfect as “beer food” gets.
For much more information about what’s on tap, upcoming events and other fun stuff, I’d like to refer you guys to the brewery’s website. You can also follow them on social media—Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
Note: the beers suggested is this post may be limited batches and may not be available in the future. Check Triple Crossing’s website or, of course, the beer menu in the taproom to see what’s on tap.
