The Bucket Trade is your one stop for craft beer, growlers and provisions. We have 16 taps featuring both international and national rotating taps by style and the best Virginia beers and hard cider. We have beer on draft by the pint or pitcher and growlers, bottles and cans to go.
What does that name mean?? Before Prohibition and before bottles and cans became widespread, if you wanted beer outside of a bar it was put into a bucket. The buckets of beer were then taken to the thirsty by "bucket boys", usually carrying several on a pole. This process was called the "bucket trade". This eventually led to the "growler" which we know and love today!
