I have been to this beautiful place three times now and never have I ever been disappointed. You know why? Because Jenny is there. She is a whirling dervish of magic.
8 standards on tap, last time i was there they had an imperial ipa, this time they had a tripel, a quad, and a barleywine (15%) which was shocking. the barleywine wasn't bad, the quad and trip both pretty good, but no ipa on tap this time. sad, but i can forgive them this once.
large outdoor patio in the summer, large open space inside, little smoking room to the side of the bar. the beer quality is alright. i have heard to never eat the food though. The kitchen does look a little gross.
We were enjoying the Jenny show when my friend FB went to use the facilities. When he arrived in the bathroom, he found a man slumped against the wall, nearly on his knees, kneeling over the urinal and peeing. FB said "Hello" The gentleman blurted "Is everyone alright?" FB said "Yeah, I think everyone's alright out there." But it was the way he said it that made it so beautiful, as if he were talking to his wife on the phone, and he was late again for supper, cold macaroni on the table, kids in bed. He then returned to the bar and drank from his mug. Oh, yeah, did I mention they have a mug club?

I remember standing in the alley just outside the tasting room, because there only like 12 seats in the tasting room. Legend was my first beer love in richmond. From those humble beginnings Legend morphed into what you see today. A very nice restaurant upstairs and a nice beer vibe. The Legend brown and IPA were always a mainstay, my favorite was the porter until Tom the owner made the master brewer change the recipe to make it more mainstream. This is the only brewery where I retain a mug the "Beerslayer", the barley wine is my new favorite. There has been constancy issues with food and beer over the years. But I still recommend everyone try a Legend brew. They were the first good craft brewery in Richmond and have stuck around. We all owe Legend our beer respect.

I am a native Richmonder and have never really cared for this establishment at all. The service is slow and the host/waitstaff is curt at best. Unless you are a regular the bartenders will barely give you the time of day. The food is bland and really bad. Beer selection is decent, but then again their beers aren't all that great. The best beer they had was the Porter which is now retired.

If you plan on going make sure you do not overdo it or have a DD with you so you do not have to leave your vehicle overnight. The last time I went to Legend was for a birthday party and we left the car there and took a cab home. The next day we came back to find the back window smashed in and the car had been rifled through. The brewery is in a bad part of town and they have basically zero security (not even cameras). Haven't been back since.
