I stopped in at Ardent Craft Ales in Richmond, Virginia with a colleague to try their beer. We both enjoyed their VA Common which is much like the better known California Common (aka Anchor Steam Beer). The beer is delicious. Very drinkable with a malty finish. Just a touch of hoppiness to keep it from being too sweet. I also sampled the Stone Arrogant Bastard which was brewed at Ardent Craft Ales – one of my favorites – and it was tasty as always.
