RPG is double-fisted alcohol rock. One of the catchiest tunes by the longtime Richmond rockers is called “Alcohol,” so it makes perfect sense that Hardywood Park Craft Brewery would name its latest batch of seasonal suds after the band. Like the no-nonsense music of its namesake, the RPG IPA is a loud, bitter and ineluctably black beverage that has no time to mess around. RPG brings its barrel-aged distillation of garage, punk and classic rock to Hardywood on Saturday, Nov. 15. Helping them commemorate are fellow Richmond garage-rock volume-pushers the Ar-Kaics and Sleepwalkers. The celebration runs 2-10 p.m., with music kicking in at 5:30. Free. hardywood.com.
