Stopped by for a second time and my thoughts were pretty similar to my first visit. Decent enough but nothing stellar. Beers are ok but nothing spectacular. Large selection between front and back bar. Service was very good with back bar server (a homebrewer too) chatting it up with me about barrel aging home brews.

The Dabney road location is great, lost of seating out doors and in doors, great beer selection for craft beer drinkers although casual beer drinkers probably will have difficulty finding something they truly like. They have a great hike box, and a ton of classic video games. Friendly staff, they offer music and even yoga classes at the location. Great place

V: Located - like so many breweries now - in an office park off the beaten path, Strangeways has a cozy atmosphere to it. It's bigger on the inside than expected, with a big patio area with tables. The beer menu is divided into styles or descriptions. A solid place.

Q: Looked to be a high level of quality here; no stale stuff.

S: Service was very friendly and clearly knowledgeable about their products.

S: An interesting and wide variety of beers - all Strangeways. Most are on tap, with your typical IPAs and DIPAs, as well as several Belgian styles, Berliner Weisses, imperial stouts, goses, and a couple of lagers. A varied mix that will please most people. They have a handful of beers in bombers (maybe 3), but everything on-tap is growler-ready.

This was my second favorite stop in Richmond after The Answer. A super funky brewery/brewpub in the outskirts of town with a nice, super chill vibe. A lot less polished than the newer breweries around Scott's Addition but a lot more fun and hella less crowded. No preppy douchebags here.

They have a million different beers on tap, including imperial stouts aged in brandy, rye and bourbon barrels, a barrel-aged wild barleywine ("Hinterlander") and 3 or versions of a gose aged in different rum and red-wine barrels and with different ingredients added.

WIld fun indeed!

Definitely some very interesting beers here and worth trying out. It gets pretty cramped inside, outside is typical lot area with a food truck, cornhole etc. but they allow smoking (or don't stop it) which I don't really like personally. Definitely worth going to try their beer though, not everything is great but some really interesting brews here for sure.

Pretty awesome place. Nice setup inside. Friendly and helpful staff. They have a crazy amount of beers on tap, 30-40 beers on tap. Beers range from good to great.

A small place with great service and a separate tasting room inside the brewery. Occasionally they set up a stage back there (surrounded by barrels), where they have live music, burlesque shows, etc. They also have dog friendly events and are dog friendly in general(outside). There is always at least one food truck. They have a pretty wide selection of styles, and have bottles, crowlers and growlers to go. There is usually a firkin/cask beer available also, and nitrogen selections.
