A Tale of Two Brews

OutRVA partnered exclusively with Virginia Pride, Ardent Craft Ales and Center of the Universe Brewing to create two special brews for the 2016 Pridefest.  

In their first collaboration, each brewery created a beer to compliment the other inspired by a playful twist on the nursery rhyme Georgie Porgie.

Georgie Porgie, Puddin' and Pie,
Kissed the girls and made them cry,
When the boys came out to play,
Georgie Porgie ran away, nope...decided to stay.

Georgie is a mixed berry pale ale while Porgie is a chocolate pudding porter.   "Georgie and Porgie are two beers that represent the love we have for craft beer and for everyone who drinks it, no matter who they are and who they love,” the label for the new bottle states.

Taste the brews throughout the month of September starting with a kickoff and release party on Quirk Hotel’s rooftop.
