Two of Norfolk’s most beloved institutions have teamed up to bring you special local beers with local ingredients. O’Connor Brewing and the Norfolk Botanical Garden teamed up to develop a Grain & Hop Garden.
To celebrate this partnership, the garden is hosting a Beer & Roses Day on Saturday, October 15 from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. You’ll be able to tour the Grain & Hop Garden and the Fall roses all while enjoying your favorite O’Connor brew.
Brewers will be on-hand to teach you how hops flavors beer, what it takes to brew beer and other beer-making secrets. Also O’Connor will be releasing their Susan Constant Wheat Wine, which is the latest beer in their Virginia Vintage series, a showcase of beers made from local ingredients.
The day will start with a CrossFit benefit workout from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. There are sessions available for all levels of experience. Plenty of food trucks, live music, family-friendly activities, games and educational booths will be part of the day as well.
