Ardent in Progress

Today I had the privelege of touring the site of Ardent Craft Ales, a brewery opening later this year in the Scott’s Addition neighborhood of Richmond, VA. We’re in the middle of a continuing craft beer boom, but the guys from Ardent have been fine-tuning their work for years in a rented garage up in Church Hill. Generous sampling on brew days has had me eager for these guys to get off the ground, and soon we’ll all be able to exchange cash for suds in what I think will be one of this city’s great breweries.
