Common Grounds 2018

For the third year in a row, we are happy to announce that we will be participating in the Common Grounds Festival on Saturday May 19th at the Virginia Beach Holiday Travel Park. This year’s beer is a collaboration with The Answer Brewery in Richmond Va. The Answer is owned by An Bui, who also owns the adjacent famous Vietnamese restaurant, Mekong. For years Mekong has been a must stop for any beer nerd passing through Richmond. Regularly ranked as one of the best beer bars on the east coast, the selection of beers is phenomenal. When An opened his brewery, he kept that quality, consistently producing award winning beers that gave The Answer an immediate nationwide reputation. It has always been a dream of mine to do a beer with these guys, and this year we were able to pull it together. Evan and I traveled to Richmond, met with An and Head Brewer Sean, and developed a recipe for a unique beer. The result is the Ugly Answer, a kettle soured beer, brewed with a 60/40 wheat/pilsner malt mix, acidulated malt, and lactose, then aged on vanilla beans, strawberries, and rhubarb. The beer is sweet, tart, smooth and just plain delicious, with an ABV that will allow you to overindulge without worry. The beer will be on tap soon at Big Ugly, and at The Answer. Or, better yet, come see us at Common Grounds on the 19th!
