The number of breweries in Richmond just jumped again — or it will in April when the Charlottesville-based Three Notch’d Brewing Co. opens its third location in Scott’s Addition, reports Richmond BizSense.
The building at 2930 W. Broad St. will also house the second location of Gather, a co-working space. Members pay a monthly fee that includes desks, offices or conference rooms, plus other things such as wifi and video conferencing equipment.
The Charlottesville brewery opened in 2012 and expanded to Harrisonburg last year. “The new [Richmond] location will have a 3.5-barrel system and at least 12 tap lines,” writes BizSense, “with an emphasis on collaborating with other brewers and restaurateurs in Richmond to feature a variety of beers.”
Three Notch’d takes its name from the road that led from Richmond to Charlottesville, which was marked by the three notches colonists used to blaze a trail that may have been created by Native Americans long before they arrived. We know the trail as Three Chopt Road here in Richmond, and Route 250 more or less follows its same path to Charlottesville.
Co-owner Scott Roth told BizSense that the brewery has plans to open more tasting rooms throughout Virginia. On its Facebook page, Three Notch’d announced that its looking for a head brewer and taproom manager for the Richmond location.
