Great place! I was shocked to find good food in a bar with such a great selection of craft brews. Good selection of rotating drafts and about as good a bottle selection as one could hope for. Nice outside patio downstairs, they have a music hall and get good bands on occasion. I’ll be back every time I travel to Richmond on business.

Located in the busy city distric of Richmond, the venue is a nice refuge from the noise of the downtown. Spacious but cozy, the bar offers an impressive selection of beers on tap, a number of them quite decent and from Virginia. Very tasty food - I had a Down South burger and it tasted great. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, too. Average prices. Will gladly come back one day, just hoping that I will not have to listen to German folk songs ;-)

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.

A massive choice of beers from all over the world. A slightly upmarket feel about the venue.

These places tend to be really massive although under stocked with bathrooms. They have a ton of taps with a lot f regional stuff available. They typically serve their whole menu until late which is awesome. I was fortunate to find street parking but theres also a parking garage nearby. The only thing that ruined night a bit were the loud assholes at the bar bragging about what giant douches the are., but surely they’ve gone by now.

This is where my craft beer experience really kicked off rating is actually for 2009. I drank coors light or miller light before I had weihenstephaner hefeweiss on draft. I have been here many times, probably well over a dozen. Service was good every time except once when they were busy in the basement bar area. Great decor, parking is likely to be a challenge. Great selection of beer especially draft. The lamb burger is awesome, but be sure you bring an appetite.

Good food at a fair price. Big discounts on all drafts every Saturday until 9pm.can get a bit noisy, but otherwise a very good brewpub atmosphere.
