Basic City Beer Co. from Waynesboro is taking over the Twisted Ales space at 212 W. Sixth Street in Manchester. The Sixth Street location was once Blue Blee Cider until the cidery reloacted to Scott’s Addition. Twisted Ales moved into the space upon Blue Bee’s departure. Now it is Basic City’s turn at making a go of the space.
The Manchester location will be a satellite taproom for Basic City. Here is what Richmond BizSense had to say about the move:
“Along with his brothers Chris and Joe, Lanman opened Basic City in a 16,000-square-foot building in Waynesboro in 2016.
The brewery is named for a mining company boomtown that was built in the late 1800s where Waynesboro now stands.
Basic City’s “The 6th Lord” IPA is its most popular brew in Waynesboro, Lanman said, and will be brewed at the Richmond spot, along with some experimental beers.
“We’re going to maintain our flagships, but we’re going to do some special batches and mess around with it as a pilot house. We’ll do some wild and crazy stuff,” Lanman said.
Basic City is signed with Blue Ridge Beverage for distribution in Waynesboro, but Lanman said they’ll likely hold off on distributing out of Richmond for now.”
