A discussion with the founders of RVA Yeast Labs and Black Heath Meadery
RVA Yeast Labs is located in the heart of downtown Richmond at the VA Bio+Tech Park. Our mission is to supply brewers with “the freshest yeast for optimal fermentation.” RVA Yeast Labs provides traditional and unique species and strains of brewing microbes. We also capture and propagate wild yeasts.
Black Heath Meadery's mission is to support Virginia beekeepers to help establish hives for sustaining the bee population and Virginia agriculture. We buy our honey from all around Virginia. Our commitment is to re-create the world’s oldest fermented beverage by taking advantage of modern techniques and local ingredients.
