Trapezium Brewing Company is the new kid in town
Virginia has no shortage of well-known breweries—Devil’s Backbone Brewing Company, which was recently purchased by Anheuser-Busch; Stone Brewing Company, the #10 largest micro-brewery in the U.S.; Blue Mountain Brewery, Hardywood Park Craft Brewery, and The Veil Brewing Co., to name a few. But if you haven’t heard of Trapezium Brewing Company, allow me to introduce you.
Located in Old Towne Petersburg, VA, Trapezium distributes four core beers: Lucky 47 White Ale, Lucky 39 IPA, Lucky 27 Session IPA, and Lucky 75 Lemon Honey Ginger Ale. They have a much broader selection at the brewery along with some really pizza made in a 900-degree brick oven.
Why is the name “Lucky” and an odd number in front of each of the beers you ask? Well, the historic, quirky building was built with no right angles, and through the years all sort of stories and superstitions have been assigned to it. So that quirkiness was carried over into the beer names.
The interior is very open with lots of brick and concrete and there is a large balcony overlooking the bar and pizza oven. Outside they’ve built an awesome patio and general hangout space equipped with a cool bar that’s been converted from a boat.
Check their social channels for beer releases, live music, and food truck events.
If you’re driving down I-95 and you’re a beer lover this is a must stop. And for you Richmonders the 30-minute drive to Petersburg is a perfect little weekend jaunt.
