Anyone been to this place, in Alexandria?

https://www.miezabeer.com/

based on their "on tap" menu, this place has definite potential.  if anyone hits this place, please post a review!

A number of years ago, my brother and I started a competition to see who visits the most breweries. Until recently, I was stuck on #299. I: needed something worthy of being #300.

A couple of weeks ago, we drove down 81 to do a couple of college visits. I decided to veer off 81 and take some back roads just for fun. While driving, I noticed that we were near Salem, VA. I remembered that I had once thrifted a hat from the Salem, VA brewery know as Parkway. I realized that we were 10 minutes away. So we stopped, and I thought I was going to bag #300. However, their beer menu looked pretty underwhelming and the place itself just didn't look all that inviting, so we skipped it.

So I decided to make Mieza Beer #300 this past weekend. We dropped our daughter off at Panera, where she studied her schoolwork and perhaps eyed the boys, and were on our way for a little date at Mieza.

The place was in a low key strip mall and was rather unassuming. There was another couple and a multi-generational family also there. Both with dogs. We've never been take your dog to the brewery people and our dog just passed...so whatever.

The server was an older gentleman who I can only assume was Brennser's dad. If so, he did a great job of hiding his accent and pouring the beer.

We ordered six four once pours (two mixed culture saisons, three barrel aged fruited sours, and the one stout). I don't rate beers on untappd, but if I did, I'd say they were all between 4.0 and 4.4....which is a bit higher than the current 3.84 average this place currently has on uptappd...though I purposely picked higher rated beers...All beer were very good to nearly excellent. Prices were a little high, though that was exacerbated by choosing four ounce pours instead of the full eight ounce pours. You are allowed to bring your own food, which we did. Some funky cheeses to go with the funky beer.

Yes, we will go back. This area is definitely in need of more local funky beer, and this place hits the mark. Happy for it to be #300.

Well this sucks because it's maybe my favourite beer place in Richmond. It also sucks because it's maybe my favourite beer style and it sounds like pastry stouts and sours are winning the war.

Come help us wish The Funkhaüst Cafe a fond farewell on Friday, December 1st 5pm-9pm!
We’ve made the tough decision to close our Funkhaüst Cafe to the public after our final bash on Friday December 1st from 5-9pm. We have decided to greatly reduce our wild/spontaneous beer program due to the declining interest in wild/spontaneous beers in the industry as a whole. We plan on reallocating the majority of our Dabney Rd location to some needed office spaces and expanding some of our wholesale operations.

Have no fear though! Wild/spontaneous beers are deeply rooted in the origins of The Veil, and we will continue to produce these beers, just in much smaller volumes. We also have some wild/spontaneous beers conditioning away to be released through the next few years, so keep your eyes peeled for those!

With all of that said, we will be cordially parting ways with our Funkhaüst Manager Pizza Nick(@pizzanickdanger) after the bulk of the program has been wound down. Nick has been an integral part of everything funky and wild here at The Veil for many years and we genuinely appreciate his hard work, knowledge, and passion he shared with us. We want to send a sincere thank you out to one of the most talented saison/wild beer brewers ever. Only love and peace to Nick and we wish him the best of luck moving forward. We are sincerely and eternally grateful for your time with us.

TBT El Gallo will be joining us that evening for some delicious tacos! DJ Tim Skirven will be playing the hitz!

this is a great joke that kind of sums up the problem with the craft beer drinker

 A man walks into a bar. He orders a beer and takes a sip. “Wow, that’s the best beer I’ve ever tasted,” he tells the brewer. “What else do you have?”

Woah who knew Cushwa/Rad Pies had opened a second location in Columbia.

Sapwood Cellars and Cushwa, that's quite a one two punch. Might make me never arrive for the Merriweather show.
