Hardywood Brewery does great beers. I am not a big fan of their gingerbread stout but others like it if he can find it. Legend Brown Ale is a traditionally liked craft beer for the town also. And check out Center Of The Universe's IPA I loved that beer when I had it. They are a new brewery about a month or so old. It is nice seeing some good brews coming out of my hometown.
If he sees O'Connors Dismal Swamp IPA get it, it is a great CDA. They are not from Richmond but instead Norfolk Va.
