good food and excellent choices for beer. a 14 page beer menu makes every visit a chance to try something new. Dollar Burger night makes it the best place on a Monday night to visit.

I was taken here by a family friend and loved it! Up until the waitress poured the whole bottle of St. Bernardus Abt 12 into the glass. The Whole Bottle. I explained to her why she shouldnít do that and she apologized and asked me if i worked in the beer industry.
Regardless, the food was great, the beer selections was wonderful and included the prices for small glasses, large glasses, and growler fills. You canít beat that.

In Richmond for a three-day weekend, I stopped by for lunch each day. Everything was consistent; the beer selection excelled, the service (three different and attractive young ladies) was attentive; the food was hearty and tasty. Great place for a comfortable hangout following a day of history. Note: on Saturdays (11am-7pm) all American micros are priced at $2.00-$5.00. Not bad. There ia also live music venue on-site.

Went here during a business trip. Located downtown a few blocks from the major hotels, Capital Ale house has the decor of a traditional pub with lots of dark wood and many different seating layouts. There is a large party room, the main bar area that includes multiple 6 foot high bottle coolers behind the bar, a back room that smells like fish, and another party area with darts, photohunt, pool, and a patio. One of the coolest things is the frost runner built into the main bar that people rest their drinks on. Pretty solid selection (particularly locals) with many rotating taps and old vintages of lambics going back to the mid 90s. Didnít try the food but the prices were fair and the staff wasnít bad. One kid was a snarky weiner who I wanted to kick in the throat and our other waitress was a sexy Japanese broad with killer cheekbones.

This place has the best selection of bottles and drafts. The draft beer tastes pretty clean as though they take good care of their lines and draft system. Clean and inviting ambience. It now has a nice patio area out in the back adjacent to the game room. Even though it is down town parking is not an issue since they offer free parking at a deck around the corner.
