Richmond Breweries

Recommended Posts


Speaking of breweries (and keeping our boards active)....

 

7 Hills Brewery is on my block downtown;  it was supposed to open in February, but things have been delayed.  Everything looks in place.  I hope they are not awaiting the city's hula hoops to jump through before they welcome customers!

Ditto.  Until Stone opens a couple blocks away that will be my walk-to-brewery so hoping for the best.

Stone Brewery: Any construction updates on this project? Last I heard there was some preliminary land clearing going on. Anyone have anything new? Maybe even a photo or two of the progress? I think they are still aiming for an opening by the end of this CY/beginning of CY 2016. I wonder if this is a realistic timetable?

Land is cleared and I believe they have utilities ran.  Beyond that not much update.

Thanks for the update.  I was afraid that is all that has been done.  I really fear that work will not be done in time for the proposed opening timeframe.

They've built up the pad too. There are cement trucks on site pretty consistently, I can't really see where the cement is going yet though.

I'm wondering...How come we haven't seen a detailed rendering of this project yet or did I just miss it?  I saw a generic (not detailed at all) project layout, but nothing detailed.

There's nothing really sexy about a square brewery building. The renderings you are probably more interested in are for the bistro and beer garden... timeline for that is a couple years out.

I think the site preparation is a much larger percentage of the project for a facility like this, which is mostly a giant square building with relatively little interior finishing.

Preliminary site and foundation work on Stone Brewing Co.’s Richmond brewery should be complete by the end of June, with the bulk of the building going up the following month, a project manager told the city’s Economic Development Authority on Thursday.

Great find!  I'm not a beer drinker, but the plans look great and looks like an awesome place to frequent - real classy.  Love the "Stone Brewing Co. Richmond" logo too!  Too bad the construction cam isn't real time, but I'll take it!  Thanks for the link!

There are others planning expansion and something bigger may be on the horizon as well. Exciting to see Richmond's beer scene take shape. How many are we up to at this point?

Apparently they are not updating the Construction Cam (still May 15) but the structure has been starting to rise in the Northwest corner and the footers are being installed around the perimeter.  I will have to snap some pictures.

Awesome! Love the pix! Looks like things are moving along nicely. I was worried for a while that things wouldn't be done in time, but this is a great sign!
