(Visited 03/2014): Capital Ale Houseís Innsbrook location is in the Henrico area of Richmond, anchoring the Innsbrook Shoppes strip mall off Broad Street. There is a large parking lot in front of the building.

The inside is large and spacious, with a bar on the right past the entrance, some table seating, and another bar in the rear. Dark interior with blue lighting. The bar in the back is wood and very wide. The tap handles are along the wall behind the bar, as are several coolers full of bottles. There are boards behind the bar showing upcoming tappings and other info.

The draught list is pretty extensive, with around 75 beers from many regional breweries, separated by flavor profile on the menu. Breweries included Strangeways, Foothills, Port City, and Blue Mountain on my visit. I missed Sexual Chocolate by a day or so unfortunately. There are a couple hundred bottled beers as well, again featuring many VA breweries.

Service on a weekday evening at the bar was good. Several bartenders waited on me and they were all friendly and knowledgeable.

Food at Capital Ale House is pretty good. I enjoyed the macaroni and cheese dinner.

All in all this is a solid beer spot in the Richmond area.

Had a pleasant afternoon lunch with friends. The server was almost over-the-top friendly and polite, telling us his every move in advance. The food overall was very good, although I didnít really like my fish-n-chips. Everyone else liked theirs and the appetizers were great. The beer list is definitely solid for the region, with an impressive offering of 20-ish beers on their rotating tap list, plus another list of dozens of "regulars" and as sturdy a bottle list as youíll find anywhere outside the DC metro in the state. Definitely a worthy spot for beer lovers.

Great place. The beer menu is epic, and if you sit at the bar you can place your beer onto an ice rail to keep it cool.

Great place to find and try rare beers. They even have a small selection of domestics to keep "that guy" from complaining too much. Food is great if you want to take a date and impress her while enjoying quality brew.

Really pretty solid beer stop near Richmond. Nice beer list(I donít know what other places there have), nice sized place, food was solid. Rare stuff, but not super rare stuff. I really like the "small" tasting size which isnít a full pour but not the 1/4 sizes we get in DC.

Itís a nice place- but not as good as the one downtown. Our server was pretty good. Good selection as always, and foodís decent, too. Weíd probably go here more if we lived closer, but the downtown one is more a regular haunt for us.

Well this place is all blue lights, beer cases, and taps! They have like 3 bar areas each with different taps, mainly locals, though theyíve got some great widely available craft beer as well. The pretzel was awesome. The bartender was knowledgeable and attentive. Canít wait to try the other locations!

A lot of beer places are located in obscure buildings that arenít listed on modern maps. This place doesnít have that problem. I would argue you can see the Capital Ale House from space or at least from the road. The space is big with atmospheric blue lighting and several different bars including an outdoor patio and they have a game room with dart boards and pool tables. Itís a comfortable place to hang it which would e meaningless without the massive beer list. They have more interest in local beer than any place Iíve visited in VA. They also have a number of craft beer specials as well. The food we sampled we also fantastic. I canít wait to sample the other locations.

Nice. Big beer selection. The food is always decent. The service was good. Used to come here a lot more, but rarely get to this side of town anymore.
