Unlike many industries wracked by recession, the craft beer industry is growing, and fast.I'm sure that Musings readers are quite familiar with, and enjoy, the beers from Legend Brewing. Hardywood Park is a newcomer that we mentioned previously. I'm looking forward to trying their brews soon.
Richmond’s two commercial brewers represent opposite ends of the spectrum. One, Legend Brewing Co., is almost 18 years old and recently completed a major expansion that included the purchase of a bottling machine, something that only makes economic sense when a brewery is stable and producing a sizeable amount of beer. The other, Hardywood Park Craft Brewery, put its first full batch of beer into tanks last week and will start selling to the public early next month.
