Notes

Visited: July 6, 1994

Opened: 1994

Annual Production: 7,500 bbl

Microbrewery with a tasting room that seated maybe fifteen people when I was there in July 1994...sounds like they've expanded and extensively upgraded since then. Now they're distributing beer throughout central Virginia.

2007-09-27: Legend regular Tom Hostenske offers his views:

Just some info on Legends. I am a regular and they have a great product. Just came out with an Octoberfest that is about as good as it gets. These seasonals typically "sell" out in a week or two. Have a deck for beer and food (beer garden?) that overlooks James and downtown Richmond. Well worth the visit.
