“We love the adventure and excitement Dominion Energy Riverrock brings to Richmond. There’s something for everyone from the pros, to spectators, and every day athletes,” said Kate Lee, President of Hardywood Park Craft Brewery. “We wanted the Riverrock Pale Ale to be as appealing to everyone as the festival is. This is the ideal beer to enjoy after a trail run, during a day on the river, or while you take in a concert on Brown’s Island. It pairs perfectly with Richmond’s favorite outdoor adventure festival.”

Riverrock Pale Ale will be available in cans during Dominion Energy Riverrock as well as at the two Hardywood locations, Hardywood Richmond and Hardywood West Creek.

“Richmond has an amazing craft beer scene, and Hardywood has played a huge role in establishing that,” said Meghan Keogh, event director for Dominion Energy Riverrock. “We’re excited to be working with a local partner and not only showcasing our rich outdoor scene, but also highlighting Riverrock Pale Ale as the official beer of the festival.”

Hardywood became the official beer partner of Dominion Energy Riverrock in 2022. Riverrock Pale Ale will officially be released on April 12, 2023.
