Posted By on Tue, Jul 14, 2015 at 2:35 PM

Closed: After months of sporting a “closed for renovations” sign on its front door, Moo Burgers at 309 N. Laurel St. is officially closed, as suspected and confirmed by Richmond BizSense.

Listicles: The Answer Brewpub’s Petty Larceny made Deadspin’s list of 12 IPAs for people who hate IPAs. “It’s simply a dry, floral, very good beer, perfect for hot days or long nights,” Deadspin’s David Obuchowski writes. theanswerbrewpub.com. … And apparently we’re the coolest kids at the party even when we aren’t drinking beer. Richmond grabbed a spot on Wine Enthusiast magazine’s list of the foodie’s five must-see wine country destinations. winemag.com.

Cocktails: Belle & James will throw a bar pop-up at Osaka Sushi and Steak on July 14. Heavyweight mixologist Bobby Krueger will show off an Asian-influenced array of cocktails, and the restaurant’s bar will stay open until midnight. osakasushiva.com.

Lots o’ beer: Arguably the biggest beer event of the year will take place this week, from July 16-18, when the Capital Ale House National Beer Expo takes over the Greater Richmond Convention Center. More than 200 breweries will be on hand for unlimited tastings. You can also fill up on artisan tacos at the second annual Taco Throwdown, presented by Style Weekly, on Friday, July 17, from 5:30-10 p.m. nationalbeerexpo.com.

Celebrate the Night: Center of the Universe Brewery’s Summer Moon Festival is back. Along with 13 local bands, get ready for the real star of the event, local purveyor Anderson’s Neck Oyster Co., which will be shucking and offering its bivalves raw, plus plenty of beer, wine from James River Cellars Winery and food trucks for nonseafood eaters, on Saturday, July 18, from 1-10 p.m. and Sunday, July 19 from 1-8 p.m. cotubrewing.com.
