RICHMOND, VA – Stone Brewing announces a festival curated with the same artful consideration as its approach to beer. Paying homage to the people of Richmond one year following the company’s first local brew, the festival entwines independent craft beer with a full day lineup of artists as vibrant and distinctive as the region’s beers themselves. Bands taking the stage have been selected by Stone out of respect for their rugged independence, bold individuality and downright badass sounds.

“We enjoy routinely giving the world some of the boldest, genre-defying, groundbreaking beers on planet earth,” said Dominic Engels, Stone Brewing CEO. “This music festival gives us a chance to plug in and amplify our personalities. I deeply love a broad range of music and I absolutely love Stone beer. When we get a chance to bring these together in our new hometown, a stone’s throw from our new brewery, well, let the brilliance ensue.”
Music is deep in the roots of Stone Brewing. Fans at the festival are going to hear bold, vibrant sounds. They’ll find some funk, rock, soul and a lot of the unexpected. That’s not much different from what can be found right inside Stone’s breweries. Stone Brewing co-founders, Greg Koch and Steve Wagner first met at a music rehearsal studio owned by Greg where Steve’s band often played. Twenty-eight years later, the musical refrain is still harmonious with Stone’s offerings.
Stone brewing Presents: Stone’s Throw Down in RVA is in partnership with Loveland Distributing and Venture Richmond.
