Three local breweries traveled to Denver last week to compete in the 33rd annual Great American Beer Festival.

The Richmond beer scene was represented by Strangeways Brewing, Hardywood Park Craft Brewery and Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery. The festival ran from Oct. 2 to Oct. 4 and was attended by an estimated 49,000 people.

Denver got a taste of Hardywood’s Bohemian Pils, Gingerbread Stout, Raspberry Stout and The Great Return, and the Raspberry Stout earned the brewery a gold medal in the American-style fruit beer category.

Strangeways, located on Dabney Road, was opened last May by Neil Burton. It was recently recognized at the Virginia Craft Brewers Cup for its Uberlin Berliner Weiss sour ale.

In Denver, Strangeways poured its barrel-aged Belgian tripel, Wake Me Up Before You Gose, Uberlin Berliner Weisse, Delightfully Immoral Grissette and Martian Spring Biere De Mars.

Lickinghole Creek, located on a farm in Goochland County, opened about a year ago. It served Russian imperial stout Enlightened Despot, Magic Beaver, Nuclear Nugget, Regular and Bourbon Barrel Three Chopt Trpiel and Rosemary Saison in Denver. 

Virginia’s biggest winner was Devil’s Backbone of Lexington. The brewery won four medals and was named the mid-sized brewing company of the year.
