Tap into Virginia with the Capital Ale House!

The first ever Virginia Cask Festival will be held at the downtown Capital Ale House Music Hall. Come and experience over ten casks of real ale from all over Virginia! What is real ale? Real ale is a top-fermented beer that completes its secondary fermentation in the container from which it is served. Served at cellar temperatures and often dry-hopped, real ale is not filtered or pasteurized. Itís truly beer in its most natural delicious state.
