I do love this place. The service is spectacular, and if you go upstairs a few times the staff actually learns your name. If you are personable, they will help you select beers and are really great for conversation. Their local brews are not that great, but the atmosphere and the people are worth a visit!

Richbrau is a bit af a maze of dining rooms and bars. Selection of house brews offers something for evry beer fan. All house brews are, in my opinion, quite respectable, and growlers are available. Three pack of 22oz bottles are very popular. There is also a full bar with a reasonable wine list. Food is above average for a brew pub. Service can be dicey on a buisy weekend night, but is outstanding at any other time.

In the heart of Shockoe Slip in downtown Richmond. Buildings are old cotton/tobacco warehouses. Stock beers are okay. Seasonals are hit or miss but the brewer works hard to put new stuff on tap. Service is usually excellent but bar tenders donít always know the full scoop on the beers. Growlers, bottles, kegs to go. Food is pretty good.

Beautiful old pub building on the historic cobblestones of Richmond. The beer is good but the place gets crowded. Food is pricey but tasty.

Went here during the 6th Richmond Gathering. Nice downtown location and pretty inside with lots of dark wood. Gave it that old feel. Beers were only OK on my trip - one good one and two that were off. The only food I had was an appetizer but it was very tasty! Had the onion rings. Bit greasy, but what do you expect from fried food. Otherwise, some of the better onion rings Iíve had in a while. Service seemed good. Would go back once they get their lines replaced/bad beer out.

In the old part of town, so lots of wood paneling and old looking ambience, which I happen to like a lot, being old stock Virginian myself. No food, but the sampler was nice, as were the people, even if they could have known more about their beer selection. Good beers, though there were some signs of infection. Overall good, and I plan to go back again and again.

Edit: I did go back again and again. Until they closed, which is very sad. They havenít been replaced and they are missed.

Decently fun atmosphere. Nice pub feel downstairs. Upstairs is more like a poolhall. Unfortunately it turns into a dance club on the weekeneds. Iím not crazy about any of there standard beers but a few of there seasonals have been pleasant suprises, such as their Raspberry Wheat for instance. I find it too pricey to drink very much there. A pitcher set me back $17. But the real deal is to get a growler fill for cheap and go drink somewhere else.

In a nice historic section of the city. A clean, but old, pub feel to the place. Food was OK. Beer is a bit homebrewy. Easily accessible, parking may be dodgy. Friendly waitstaff. 6-7 brews on tap, three bomber bottles to buy.

Overcrowded and too loud on weekends. Pints overpriced. Empty on weekdays, dollar select house drafts on Monday nights.
