(Richmond, VA) – In February 1994, Legend Brewing Company delivered Its first keg of beer to the Commercial Taphouse in Richmond. Every year since, we have had our annual anniversary party in February. Here we are 20 years later planning the year of celebration that will be our 20th year of creating fine craft brewed beers in Richmond on the banks of the James River.
So what’s the plan? We will brew a special 20th Anniversary Imperial Brown Ale to mark the occasion, a very limited amount of which will be aged in bourbon barrels. We will also release a special edition of our Urban Legend series. Four guest brewers from some of our contemporaries around the state will be joining us to produce beers based on legends from their breweries hometown. The brewers, their legends and the beer styles will be released closer to the end of this year.
We will also be partying in the Pub with a special 20th on the 20th. On the twentieth of each month, we will be hosting events, celebrities from the Virginia beer world creating Firkins and a variety of other happenings to add to the festivities of our twentieth year celebration.
The year of events will kick off with a special Oktoberfest celebration on Friday, September 20, 2013. A ceremonial tapping of an Oktoberfest firkin will mark the opening of our year-long celebration.
