Weekly Food Notes

Church Hill Hiatuses, Brewville Cometh + More

Posted By on Tue, Aug 11, 2015 at 3:56 PM

It’s only temporary: Both Church Hill’s Proper Pie Co. and the Dog and Pig Show will be closed for the month of August — the first for the owners’ much-needed annual vacation and the latter for renovations.

Beer news: Brewville, a 56-tap growler store that also will sell canned and bottled beer, soon will open at 9357 Atlee Road in Hanover County, as reported by Richmond BizSense.

Cold coffee: The eight-month-old, Washington-based Confluence Coffee Co. makes its cold-brewed, nitrogen-infused and barrel-aged coffee exclusively from Richmond’s Blanchard’s Coffee Roasting Co.’s beans. It can be found in bottles at Ellwood Thompson’s Local Market. Soon the company plans to launch its creamy cold brew in cans, according to the Washington Post. confluencecoffeeco.com.

Happenings: Just when you thought there was no way you’d have a beer in one hand and a pulled pork sandwich in the other at yet another festival, the most comprehensive one of all, the RVA Brew-B-Q Festival, isn’t even happening until Sunday, Aug. 16, from noon to 5 p.m. at the 17th Street Farmers’ Market. All of the area breweries will be there, and you’ll find barbecue in its myriad forms from producers large and small. If you’ve missed the other beer and barbecue pairings or can’t get enough of the combo (and who can’t?), you’ll also get to enjoy live music, and a plethora of craft and produce vendors. facebook.com/17thStreetFarmersMarket.

For Sale: One of the very last hold-outs to Virginia Commonwealth University’s monolithic takeover of West Grace Street, the old Sahara restaurant, is now for sale, reports Richmond BizSense.

Openings: The expanded JKogi, now with sit-down service in the former Thai Corner space at 327 N. Second St., opened on Friday, Aug. 7. ... Pho So 1 plans to open a second location in the former Famous Dave’s space at 10201 Midlothian Turnpike in September, according to the Times-Dispatch.
