Hardywood Brewery is coming to West Main in Charlottesville … and they’re going to be considerate neighbors. (bolding mine)
“The taproom will feature 12 Hardywood draft beers, with a focus on experimental batches brewed on site. Light fare, including fresh baked pretzels and locally sourced charcuterie are planned offerings, and menus for area restaurants will be available for guests to order into the taproom or make plans to experience the local restaurant scene. Locally roasted, nitrogenated coffee and local kombucha will also be served on tap. Hardywood will educate customers on where they can buy Hardywood beer at local on- and off-premise retailers. Out of respect for nearby neighbors, Hardywood will restrict tobacco use and live music, and will close by 10pm.
Hardywood will invest $300,000 in the project, and will create four full time jobs and twelve part time jobs”.
Interestingly, they are going to be located in the new student housing apartment building, the Uncommon at the corner of 10th Street and West Main.
West Main continues to evolve. Good on the City of Charlottesville for bringing more jobs to walkable/bikeable locations.
If you’ve not been to Charlottesville recently, you would be shocked at what West Main looks like … I’ll update these videos this summer.
