The Thrillist in November listed what it believes are the best breweries in each state and it should come as little surprise the online publication tapped Richmond favorite (and Hampton Roads newbie) The Veil Brewing Company as the best of the commonwealth.
Said the review: “In barely over two years, they’ve become a household name in craft beer fan circles, putting the Scott’s Addition taproom as a ‘must visit’ for anyone making can pilgrimages. And unlike many other breweries that have made a name for themselves pouring haze bomb after haze bomb, these guys have a lot more going on in the way of diverse styles.
“Bright sours like their Never series goses, comforting stouts like White Russian Hornswoggler, and complex barrel-aged saisons like Escape are right at home alongside well-balanced New England IPAs like IdonteverwanttoBU (which the brewers themselves explain by saying, ‘We try to refrain from using the excessively used terminology ‘juice/juicy’ for our IPAs, but this is seriously just straight up hop juice.’).”
