Potter’s Becomes The Veil Brewing Co.

by Charlottesville29


Just when you thought no one could top your David Cop-A-Feel costume, Potter’s Craft Cider has you beat. For Halloween, the cidery’s Charlottesville tasting room and cider garden is “dressing up” as Richmond’s The Veil Brewing Co. In today’s post-hype beer era, when one-time cult favorites now sit on shelves for weeks, Veil still somehow has lines out the door before they open every day, waiting to buy beer, which typically sells out. That may be in part because co-founder and head brewer Matt Tarpey once brewed at Hill Farmstead Brewery, a multi-time winner of best brewery in the world.

Veil’s beers will be available during Potter’s regular tasting room hours: Fri 4-10, Sat 12-10, and Sun 11-4, or until they sell out. In addition to Potter’s small batch ciders, four Veil beers will be on tap: 

Broz Broz Night Night – Broz Broz Night Night is the double dry-hopped version of 9% Citra DIPA Broz Night Out.

Still Striving – Still Striving is a brand new 8% DIPA. Veil is constantly trying new malt profiles, hopping techniques, sugar sources, etc. Always striving to make the perfect DIPA. This one is a step closer on the eternal quest. Hopped intensely with Galaxy, Mosaic, and Citra.

Lil Kitty Boi’s Day Off – Lil Kitty Boi’s Day Off is a recipe mash up of 100% Citra crusher IPA Broz Day Off and 100% Simone crusher IPA Lil Kitty Boi. Clocking in at 4.8% and hopped intensely 50/50 with Citra and Simcoe.

Child Support – Child Support is an unfiltered 4.5% house hoppy Pilsner. The rad thing about Child Support is that it’s single hopped with a rotating hop varietal. This batch uses Hallertau Blanc!
