At Beer Up, we strive to not only bring the latest beer news and beer reviews, but also to focus on some diamonds in the rough that we personally have tested out. Rather than post the same content as all the other beer blogs, we do research on local haunts in our backyard, through our beer up guest bloggers, and via our beer travels. One such local brewer is Richmond VA's own Strangeways Brewing. Always a fun place to visit, Strangeways specializes in unique variants and adjuncts to their wide selection of beers that they cook up in the 'tasting lab". If you don't like it, pour it out and sample another. Never stingy and always long on fun, this is a must see for anyone visiting Richmond's beer scene. Don't just take our word for it though, RateBeer listed them as best brewery tasting room in Virginia. Please consider the following July events for your patronage. More information on all events can be found on the Strangeways Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/StrangewaysBrewing
