Hardywood Park Virginia Blackberry (the third one down) is looking pretty good!
Lately, I have been taking the train (or driving) down and back up on a section of I-95 that I have been referring to as “The Corridor.” From Washington, DC down to Richmond, VA and finally down to Fayetteville, NC, it is pretty much a straight shot. As you can imagine, there are some pretty boring sections and there are parts that make you sit up and say “hmm.” Remind me to tell you that part about three big Confederate flags sometime…
So, one Monday morning, I got out my electronic beer map and decided to see what breweries had been developed along with the interstate. Surprise! Outside of the section from Washington to Richmond, there was not much developed at all. (Raleigh, NC will be covered separately because I do go that way on occasion) So, with that in mind, I am going to fill in all of the breweries along the Corridor and give a brief glimpse of those that I have been able to visit on my journeys. Some are pretty interesting, and some I have a hard time qualify as breweries.
“That boysenberry tastes like it is a kid’s drink!” “Whips! That is what they should use because they are not using cutting blades!” “Happy wenches!” This is just some of the referring comments I work with at All That’s Brewed.com, courtesy of one person and one person only – my girlfriend Candy Scott. So, in true to form fashion, Candy has earned herself an honored place in All That’s Brewed.com lore – she is getting a name.
So, Candy Scott, you shall be officially annointed the “Oracle of Beer.” Long may you reign. Oh, you may contact the Oracle of Beer at OracleofBeer@allthatsbrewed.com. 🙂
