RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC/WAVY) — Three Notch’d Brewing Company, which has five locations, including one in Virginia Beach, has issued a voluntary recall of several different types of beer. The company issued a statement saying the quality of the beer was not up to standards.

After undergoing quality testing, the brewery said an “oxidized metallic flavor” was found to be present in the beer through “accelerated shelf life testing.”

Three Notch’d said there is no reason to believe there is a safety issue with these products, but that it will be voluntarily recalling the beer because it “fails to meet our [the company’s] high standards.”

Recalled Beer

  • King of Clouds 4/6/16oz – canned between 2/21/23 and 3/13/23
  • 40 Mile 6/4/12oz – canned between 3/7/23 and 3/9/23
  • Hop Variety Pack 2/12/12oz – packaged between 3/8/23  3/27/23
  • Hop Variety Pack 24/12oz – packaged between 3/8/23 and 3/27/23

You can check to see if your beer is impacted by checking the date it was packaged — found on the can itself or on the stickers on the box.

If you’re in possession of the impacted beer, you can bring the product to any Three Notch’d location in Virginia for an immediate replacement. The brewing company has five locations across the Commonwealth, including Richmond, Charlottesville, Harrisonburg, Roanoke and Virginia Beach.

The Virginia Beach location is 4561 Virginia Beach Boulevard. It’s open from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. until 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
