From the Virginia Beer Company Facebook event:
On Sunday, April 7th, join us at The Virginia Beer Company for our first Vegan-focused pop-up of 2019 - this time supporting Rikki's Refuge! We'll be donating $1 to Rikki's from EVERY pint of a Year Round beer sold. And Rikki's will be visiting to promote their mission of compassion.
In honor of the event, Mean Bird will be making their FIRST-EVER trip the brewery to provide an eco-friendly, all-Vegan menu! Our friends from LOKAL in Downtown Williamsburg, Virginia will also be popping in to provide Vegan-friendly sweet treats. And from 2-5 pm, Brett E Williams will take the stage for an Acoustic Sundays set for all to enjoy!
