RICHMOND, Va. — Several local breweries have Mother’s Day specials planned. If you’re looking for a chance to really hang out with mom, then spend the afternoon at one of these fine establishments.

Buskey Cider will offer roses to the first 100 moms and if you buy her first pint, the second one is on Buskey. The cidery, which opened last month, is located in Scott’s Addition, at 2910 W. Leigh Street. Read more about the venue, here.

To give mom the ultimate brewery day experience, a ticket can be purchased in advance, or the day of, for $20. The ticket price includes a brunch plate (with several options from which to choose), a custom glass, an adult beverage, and access to Mom’s Time Out — for mom’s only. The area will have snacks, a server bringing snacks and a big HDTV screening the classics.   Center of the Universe is located at 11293 Air Park Road, in Ashland.
