The Richmond Raceway and Virginia Craft Brewers Guild are excited to have Virginia craft beer become a part of the NASCAR fan experience, providing them with the opportunity to taste world-class craft beer and learn more about the Commonwealth’s craft beer industry. This is the first partnership of its kind between a state craft brewers guild and an official NASCAR event to showcase local craft beer. “The Richmond region is known for its wide variety of craft breweries, and now we are able to offer them to our fans during the Toyota Spring Race Weekend,” said Richmond President Dennis Bickmeier. “This new attraction will allow fans to get a sampling of the great breweries in the Capitol City, and fans might even find a new favorite to enjoy during the iconic Richmond racing experience.”
Richmond Raceway is currently undergoing a $30 million renovation and has announced that it will be unveiling their new Party Deck at the April 21st NASCAR race. The Party Deck, which will sit in Turn 4, will not have seats, but is instead designed for fans to mingle while watching the race. The party deck will be a separate part of the facility from the rest of the grandstands, and only a party-deck ticket will allow admission. For the first time, coolers will not be allowed in that area of the facility, however, beers are available for purchase and those beers will include 5 Virginia craft beers. Complete information, including requirements to be eligible for this opportunity, is included in the 3-Wide Virginia Craft Brewery Information and Registration document found at the link below. The RR Party Deck and 3-Wide Virginia Craft Beer Fest admission ticket will only be $50.00, so please tell all your enthusiasts, family and friends to join us at the new Party Deck experience and enjoy some Virginia craft beer.
“Partnering with Richmond Raceway is a great opportunity to expose Virginia craft beer to NASCAR enthusiasts traveling to the Commonwealth for the Toyota Spring Race Weekend,” said Virginia Craft Brewers Guild President & CEO Brett Vassey. “The 3-Wide Virginia Craft Beer Fest will offer NASCAR fans the ultimate race experience, an opportunity to meet owners and brewers, and enjoy award-winning Virginia craft beers.”
