Virginia has become one of the nation’s choice destinations for beautiful sections of the Blue Ridge Mountains, plenty of historical exposure, and delicious local food, but now’s your chance to check out the new favorite attraction sweeping the state: breweries! The Autumn Bottom Brews Festival in Richmond Virginia this Sunday, November 2nd, is a celebration of the best local beerbeer across the Old Dominion.

18 different Virginia breweries, including Bold Rock, Legend, Starr Hill, and Devil’s Backbone, will gather at the Autumn Bottom Brews Festival to showcase their own craft beers and help you explore your options. The festival will partner up with the weekly 17th Street Farmer’s Market in Richmond’s Shockoe Bottom district, and will also feature food courtesy of Halligan’s Barbecue, River City Wood Fire Pizza, The Savory Grain, The Boardwalk, and plenty more. Virginia beer and Virginia food – what could make a better combo?

Live music from the Sweater Band and Andrew Alli and the 5th Street Hospital Band will join the fun throughout the day. Plus, check out the Farmer’s Market while you’re here. Local crafts, clothing and jewelry, food and groceries, and art all combine to make the 17th Street Farmer’s Market the perfect slice of River City life.

Admission to the festival and the 17th Street Farmer’s Market is free, and beer tickets can be purchased at the event for only $2 per sample $6 per full pour. This 4th annual event is bound to be a great introduction to the fall season. Embrace the autumn air in the best way possible – with beer in hand, of course – at the Autumn Bottom Brews Festival.
