Hardywood set to debut mega brewery

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

One of Richmond's most popular craft breweries just built a new, multi-million dollar facility, and the grand opening is this weekend.

Hardywood Brewery West Creek, located at 820 Sanctuary Trail Drive, is already inviting customers to check out its new facility in Goochland. The main floor had a sizeable crowd Thursday at the start of happy hour.

The new brewery has nine ceiling-high, steel fermenters, outdoor grain silos, an indoor stage, and kind of resembles a modern barn house. An outdoor amphitheater next to the brewery is also in the works.

This is the brewery’s third location, having facilities in Richmond and Charlottesville.

Hardywood has created more than 60 kinds of craft beers, and will debut three more this weekend. 

Patrick Murtaugh, one of the brewery’s co-founders, said that they needed to expand their product. He also is excited for the outdoor concert venue, which is expected to seat up to 3,000 people.

"There’s going to be a timber frame stage where we can have some live concerts. People will just kind of sit on the hillside and watch these shows in this beautiful environment, drinking a good craft beer,” said Murtaugh.

The grand opening party starts Friday and will have plenty of food trucks, bands, and of course...Hardywood’s craft beer.
