Plan your best group event in Richmond, VA
Strangeways has special weekly activities including trivia, Cards Against Humanity, burlesque shows, discounts on flights, Steal the Vessel, and live music.

Groups can check the Strangeways' website and Facebook for the most up-to-date information on upcoming events.
Strangeways Brewing lives up to its credo: Think Strange. Drink Strange. The brewery boasts an ever-changing tap list of at least 25 beers at any time - all made in house and currently only available in Richmond. The names and flavors of their beers are as unique as the space itself. Guests can sip on concoctions such as "Woodbooger Belgian Brown Ale" and "Wake Me Up Before You Gose."
Strangeways has become known for its sour beers and has earned praise for everything from the names to the flavors. Their beers run the gambit of light, dark, hoppy, malty, sweet, sour, and everything in between. This is the right place for people who think they "don't like beer" – Strangeways accepts the challenge wholeheartedly and will invite them on a tasting adventure.
Strangeways is a family-friendly establishment - children are welcomed with a bag of fruit snacks, while four-legged friends are greeted (outside) with some water and a treat of their own. Kids of all ages will enjoy the arcade games, weekly live music, and games such as Jenga, cornhole, board games, and cards.
Strangeways has been named by Bon Appetit magazine as one of its "Ten New US Breweries to Watch." Other national attention has come from Savour, Garden and Gun, and the Virginia Craft Brewer's Cup.
Why settle for four walls and fold out tables when you can have an event surrounded by barrels of beer and fermentation tanks?
Strangeways Brewery offers three intriguing gathering spaces: their main tasting room, their spacious back bar area, and a dog-friendly outdoor lot where tables are often set up and food trucks are often parked outside.
The spacious back room, lined with barrels where their beer is actively brewing, is available for private party reservations for groups with 25 or more people. Private events include exclusive use of their back bar room, professional and knowledgeable staff, a private bartender, and arcade games and a jukebox with an option of open play.
Their back room has a versatile set-up to accommodate larger groups. Their in-house event coordinator can give catering suggestions, although any outside food is permitted, including food trucks in the front lot. Lighting FX is available and guests can get 10 percent off all merchandise.
For groups that are not reserving the back room, there are plenty of activities. Past private events have included birthdays, baby showers and wedding rehearsal dinners with customized beer tastings and brewery tours.
Mention PartyRVA at the time of booking the backroom for a private event to receive an additional 30 minutes of private event time for a rental. The additional time cannot extend past regular business hours.
Strangeways works with groups of any budget, whether your group is renting the back room or meeting at Strangeways to share drinks with friends. Hourly private event reservations for the backroom start at $100 not including beer or tips.
Tab options are flexible and range from covering everyone's first beer, purchasing a few pitchers to share, ordering tasting flights, or putting everyone on their own tab for the evening.
