Our favorite place to visit in Richmond's growing craft beer scene. Always 25 different beers on tap (albeit many are flavored versions of base beers), Neil and his folks are always gracious and welcoming. Love the offbeat style of beers and the cool eclectic decor. Always something fun happening there.

I was very impressed by Strangeways. It is the third local brewery I've visited, and it was my favorite so far (between Hardywood and Legend). This place is a little bit tucked away, but if you find it it's good vibes, excellent service, and an overall quality joint. You can't go wrong with any of their main beers, and I must admit that since it was my first visit I was so adventurous to try some of their 'Curiosities.' That said, The brews I had were very good.

The service was awesome, and everybody was not only knowledgeable of their craft, but also eager to help people decide between their interesting selection. They weren't dismissive, or stand-offish as I have found at the other breweries in the area (see above).

I really liked this place, and would highly recommend anyone to stop by and check out what's on tap. Additionally, I would recommend you try their Freeze Ray eisbock; it was quite a malty treat, and a relatively rare find.

Made my first visit for the Tinkin one year anniversary party. Great atmosphere and I really like the tasting room set up. Staff is very knowledgeable. Somewhere around a dozen different brews on tap, had Disintegration, which I have to say is the first offering from them I've been wowed by. Nice selection, decent brews, great setup and staff.

Went by for the first time a couple weekends ago. It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon and after getting 6 beers to try from the back bar, the "Laboratory", we sat out on the picnic tables and enjoyed. The samples weren't as cheap as other breweries in the area but they are a little bit more out there in my mind and I don't mind paying a little bit more for something that no one else is doing. Ended up getting growlers of the Melon Whap! and the Peach Phantasmic IPA, both were delicious.

This is Richmond, VA and I am from Northern VA, where the cost of living must be double.
So why a $3-5 price on a 5.5 oz taster in a bare room at the brewery, not a real brewpub?

I only tried two; a biere de mars which was thin and weak, and the Woodybooger "Belgian" brown which was thick and weak for the style claimed. $8 for less and a glass of beer? At home I pay that for a flight (4 x 4 oz) of good craft beers.

The brewing could use some work, but the name itself and graphic designs on the labels and t-shirts is outstanding. So they think that marketing is the important part of having a modern business?

My first time visiting the brewery. I really liked the tasting room it felt unique. There seemed to be decent seating capacity and many different types of seats available, bar chairs, benches, or stand at a table or bar. Nice range of beer styles actually had a very nice sour and a heavy sweet seasonal on tap.The servers were all quite knowledgeable and would answer your beer questions.I really enjoyed this brewery.
