I went last month during a weekday and this place is totally cool. A beer store and brewery combo! Not much in the way of food (bag of chips and tub of salsa basically---it's right next to VA BBQ if you're hungry), but you can watch them brew in the fishbowl-style room in the back, and the hoppy smell permeates throughout the building when they're working.

A lot of the beers are kinda rough but Venus Rising is one of the best beers I've ever had on the "RVA Brew Trail." I took a 32-oz crowler to go for like $9! Super laid back place that I very much recommend.

A homebrew shop with a little bar setup so not really a place designed to be a beer bar but more of a place you kill an hour or two during the afternoon (or to have something to drink while shopping for homebrew supplies). Service is adequate and friendly so can't complain, and while the beer selection is just eight of their own beers I must admit they make some good beers and the prices aren't bad at all. Worth the stop if you have free time and are in area.

Not as friendly as some other locations in town, but certainly a good get in / get out place. Enough of a selection to get you through the weekend boil with no problems.

This is my go to LHBS. From all grain to extract, this store has everything you need, even if you've never brewed before and want to get into it. The owner, Tony, is very knowledgable and easy going. He will take the time to answer any questions you may have and doesn't talk down to you like i've seen at other shops. We are lucky to have a store like this in Richmond. Also, it's nice to buy local instead or ordering online. Keep the money in the community!
