Explore the RVA Beer Trail

Over the years, Richmond has established itself as a mecca for two things: history and beer lovers. But what many might not know, is that the River City actually made history for beer. In 1935 the Krueger Brewing Company created the very first beer can in Richmond, thus changing the way beer was packaged forever.  

Today, Richmond is home to more than 30 craft breweries and cideries. To put it in perspective, if you visited five breweries a day it would still take you nearly a week to visit all of them. But say you had just one day to experience Richmond’s beer scene? Where would you go?
