Why We Love It

Capital Ale House is Virginia's beer authority. Winner of Richmond's Best Bar and Richmond's Best Beer Selection for numerous years by Richmond Magazine Reader's Survey, Capital Ale House has also been ranked by Ratebeer as one of the 25 Best Places in the World to Drink a Beer. Beeradvocate ranks it as #8 in the world. The reason is that Capital Ale House pours more Virginia-brewed beers than anyone else, with almost 200 taps dedicated to the Commonwealth's finest.

100% Virginia owned and operated since opening in 2002, Capital Ale House has grown to 5 locations in Virginia, 3 of which are in the Richmond area. Their slow-growth model ensures that they don't sacrifice the quality that won them further accolades from All About Beer, Beverage Market Watch and Draft.

Old world-inspired meals and contemporary classics come together on Capital Ale House's enticing menu. Craft ale pairs nicely with their German dishes. A local favorite is their Stuffed Pretzel, a split-and-grilled kielbasa with melted Havarti cheese, sauerkraut and sweet mustard served between soft pretzel bread - to be tried with a German Heffeweizen.
