August is Craft Beer Month in the great state of Virginia. Some cities designated a particular week as "Craft Beer Week" and local restaurants had special menus. If you felt like bopping around from Falls Church to Richmond to Hampton to Charlottesville, you could find special deals every week of the month.

Another Virginia Craft Beer Month event was the 1st Annual Craft Brewers' Fest. Lyle Brown, Director of the VA Craft Brewers’ Cup Competition, just released the results"
