Richmond’s Legend Brewing Latest Addition To Microfestivus Line-Up

Another regional brewery has been officially added to the list appearing at this year’s Microfestivus.  Joining Floyd’s Shooting Creek and Charlottesville’s Starr Hill, Richmond based Legend Brewery will be represented by four of their brews at Roanoke’s annual beer festival (August 14).  I had the chance to chat with some of the folks from Legend a few weeks ago, and the obvious vibe around their tent was that these are people who are truly doing something they love.  It’s a feeling that seems to be common around micro brewery folks, but such a positive one it that never gets commonplace.  That upbeat feeling, along with the brewery’s close location, and the fact that the brewery’s beers are quite good and come well reviewed, makes it easy to become a fan of Legend.

The upcoming appearance at Microfestivus comes a little on the heels of a new distribution format here in the Roanoke area – just recently, six packs of their beers have begun showing up in stores.  Previously, the Legend could only be found in 22 oz bottles.  I’ve seen three or four of their various styles in the sixers so far.  I was in the Wine Gourmet yesterday and saw at least a couple of them.

The four Legend brews at Microfestivus this year will be their Brown Ale, Golden India Pale Ale (IPA), Oktoberfest, and their White Ale (Witbier).  Please take a look at the previous Microfestivus related post “Wheat Beers 101” for a quick description of Witbiers.
