The Richmond Craft Mafia
Representatives of four major craft families gathered to discuss business in the summer of 2005. There was much to talk about. The powers that be had made things difficult for organized craft in Richmond, Virginia. A lack of networking outlets for independent business owners and a public under the spell of mass production led these four to forge a partnership. They would become known as the Richmond Craft Mafia…
Inspired by our Austin namesake, the Richmond Craft Mafia is a small, supportive group of like-minded artists. We provide information as well as promotional and marketing opportunities for independent crafty business owners.
Join us in “rubbin’ out the mass produced.”
Hardywood Park Craft Brewery
Hardywood Park Craft Brewery operates in a 12,000 square foot, fully conditioned building situated between the Diamond and the Fan, in the heart of a historic German brewing district in Richmond, Virginia. Every recipe is perfected on a 20-gallon pilot brewery before graduating to a custom built, 20-barrel Newlands brewhouse. The brewery is equipped to produce a range of traditional European ales and lagers, as well as a host of innovative new styles with American, Virginian, and specifically, Richmond, influences.
