Pipe smokers around the world have been asking the CORPS to bring back the annual “Pipe Smokers’ Expo” - and, believe it or not, we have been missing our annual conclave, too - longing to see our friends, smoke our pipes together, and meet new pipe smokers. It was difficult to find a place that incorporates our requirements, foremost being able to enjoy a smoke in a casual and relaxed atmosphere (a tradition from which the CORPS would not waiver), have a cup of coffee, perhaps a libation, all while trading pipes and tobaccos and carrying on with all the joys of pipe smoking. That location has been found and so . . .

Inaugural Factory Tour Event
10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m
We are very excited about this weekend full of pipe lover events in collaboration with the Conclave of Richmond Pipes Smokers (CORPS).
Have you ever been curious about where tobacco comes from, how it is processed, blended and packaged? Have you ever wanted to see and experience the life cycle of tobacco once it has been harvested and ready for processing? If so, you will definitely want to join us as we take you through the “Traditional Pipe Tobacco; Journey to Market” tour. Come see our factory in motion, test some new products and *make your own tin of tobacco during our blending seminar (*nominal fee of $1.00 will apply). We will even throw in some lunch.
Then, take time to enjoy the pipe club event we have all been waiting for: The Pipe Smokers' Gathering on Saturday.
Must be at least 18 to attend tour and seminar. To register for this free factory event go to https://www.eventbrite.com/e/sutliff-tobacco-factory-tour-blending-seminar-premarket-launch-trials-tickets-47559494729
