Kick the Kegs BOGO Weekend

Friday, April 23 through Sunday, April 25 at Courthouse Creek Cider in Scott’s Addition

The bad news? Courthouse Creek Cider is departing from their location in Scott’s Addition. The good news? Their Maidens location is still alive and kicking. The better news? This weekend features buy-one-get-one deals in an effort to drain the kegs. Ah, parting is such sweet sorrow… 

Ashland Fourth Fridays

Beer Run

Saturday, April 24 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at Canon & Draw Brewing Company

The most unlikely combination of words come together for a day of cardio, pints, and – well, fun. Part of the Virginia Brewery Running Series, this 5k(ish) can be run, jogged, walked, or skipped (in either meaning of the word). The best part, of course, is the post-run pours of Canon & Draw brews.
