Two 80 bbl foeders accompany our fermenters where our Belgian-meets-American style comes to fruition.
Our four-vessel brewhouse stays busy during the week, but we give a peek behind our operations during weekend tours.
Our quality control lab, barrel room and fermentation space allow for an inside look to the world of Väsen.
We’re dedicated to brewing the best beer possible, with a lab inside the brewery to ensure quality and consistency.
We like to experiment with local yeast strains and find flavors we never thought were possible.
Keep an eye out in the taproom for exciting one-off beers with experimental concoctions.
Staged in an old glass factory originally built in 1946, clear storied windows and tall ceilings lay the perfect aesthetic for life at Väsen.
The HandCraft Building is a staple in the Scott’s Addition Historic District, home to other great breweries in Richmond, Virginia
From our pilot system to our now 20 bbl brewhouse, the commitment to be an experimental brewery has always stayed the same.
Väsen is on a mission to be one of the most sustainable breweries in the nation. As a purpose-driven brewery, we see it as our responsibility to propel the industry forward by using a holistic approach to sustainability. We created the Väsen Environmental Program as one step in this journey. Our legacy will be built on the sustainability practices enacted under this program for generations to come.
In order to create change in the beer industry, Väsen starts at the local level. By working hand-in-hand with Virginia farmers and energy producers, we rely on a local and sustainable supply chain. Together we strive to achieve sustainable brewing with 100% reuse and recycling of the resources we use to make quality beer. It’s our goal to make thoughtful, data-driven decisions that make the environmental footprint of every aspect of our business (from beer to merchandise) as small as possible.
We’re in this together. Please get in touch if you have any questions about our Environmental Program or want to chat about environmentally friendly brewing at your local brewery.
Väsen beers combine the experimental spirit that defines American craft beer with the rustic and funky flavors of Belgian farmhouse and sour ales.
Our goal is to make unconventional ales and celebrate those who share an appreciation for the outdoors and spark positive change in their communities.
