The Veil Brewing Company, open since April 2016, is located in the Scott’s Addition neighborhood of Richmond, Virginia. Their focus is hop forward beers, high gravity and barrel aging, lagers, wild ales, and spontaneous fermentation.

Brewer and co-owner Matt Tarpey brings an impressive resume with brewing experience at O’Connor in Norfolk, Portsmouth Brewery in New Hampshire, and The Alchemist in Vermont. Tapey was also the direct assistant brewer to Sean Hill at Hill Farmstead in Vermont and completed two apprenticeships with Jean Van Roy at Cantillon in Brussels, Belgium.

IdontwanttoBU is a 6.9% 0 IBU (that’s right, zero IBUs) IPA hopped intensely with Citra and Mosaic hops. The Veil describes the beer as extremely aromatic and full of citrusy, dank hops on the palate with zero bitterness. The beer boasts notes of bright fresh grapefruit peel, passion fruit, and calamansi.
