THE GRAFT & CROOKED RUN MONKEY BUSINESS RELEASE PARTY!
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 27TH @ 5 PM
Join Rustico Alexandria on Thursday, February 27th as we tap Monkey Business, the newest collaboration between Graft Cider & Crooked Run Brewing! On this day, we will showcase 10 drafts from these two dynamic producers.
Monkey Business is a deliciously playful take on cider, conditioned on cocoa powder, lemon zest, vanilla & milk sugar. With a bright fruity nose and a creamy body, this pastry-inspired cider is sure to delight!
Other highlights include Crooked Run Melt (Imperial Stout w/ Cocoa, Marshmallows & Peanut Butter) and Graft Crystal Temple (Cider w/ Cabernet Franc Grapes & Black Currants).
We will also be serving food specials including Venison Osso Buco with gruyere & truffle grits, and an Apple Chestnut & Parsnip Soup!
There is no admission fee for this event. All drafts from Graft and Crooked Run will be priced individually by the glass and in 4 oz. tasting pours. This list is subject to change at without notice.

ALEXANDRIA: RUSTICO CELEBRATES ORVAL DAY 2020
SATURDAY, MARCH 21ST @ 12 PM
Please visit Rustico Alexandria on Saturday, March 21st as we join the top beer bars from across the globe in celebrating Orval Day 2020.
One of the most important beers to ever come out of Belgium, Orval is an amber-hued Saison that is dry-hopped, then finished with Brettanomyces. Intensely aromatic and dry, this one-of-a-kind beer is as complex as it is unique. One of only 14 officially recognized Trappist breweries across the world; all Orval beer is brewed within the walls of Notre Dame d’Orval Monastery. The alluring complexity of this iconoclastic beer has made it a world classic, one that has inspired a generation of brewers across the globe to craft bone-dry beers of mixed-fermentation.
By participating in this event, you are also contributing to a great cause. On this day, Orval will donate proceeds from each bottle sold to the Safe Water Network, which provides clean, sustainable water to Ghana & India.
There is no admission fee for this event. Bottles of Orval will be specially priced at $9 for this event.
