Traditionally has the best selection of Non-Virginia craft beers. They regularly carry the very highly rated ones. Wide variety and a large number of taps. Food is above average. Beertenders are above average on knowledge. Large curved bar. Outdoor dining. Fun place at happy hour and the evening. Good lunch spot as well.

Stopped here while staying downtown. They had a great selection on tap and good bottles too. We sat outside but the bar area looked like it was a good place to be too. The railway station exterior is pretty neat. Our server was friendly and attentive. The food was good. No complaints about pricing. They had some good deals on their happy hour menu (hard to beat $4 Grapefruit Sculpin!).

Highly recommended

Finally hit this place on one of my not enough infrequent visits to the capital. Went on a Saturday afternoon so place wasn't crowded at all and found a nice place at the bar. Servers were not only quick/attentive but friendly and willing to BS; food was right up to par as well (maybe you could say expensive but I think the quality justified prices). As for selection, hits the mark for both quantity and quality of American craft beers (only knock that I have, and it's a petty one, is the lack of an expansive international selection). Definitely worth checking out when you're in Richmond.

I have been to this place many times since discovering it about six months ago. It is a nice place right by the canal. Street parking is difficult to find, but there are nearby parking lots. The atmosphere is pleasant with a large craft tap selection where one is bound to find at least a few beers in styles one will enjoy. There are two bars inside, one quite large, and seating both inside and out.

This place is evidence that the Richmond beer scene is on the upswing. The beers are mostly US craft brewers and they always have Richmond area and Virginia beers available on tap. They also have mass-produced beer available in bottles.

The food menu has a good selection of appetizers and burgers, and entrees. Entrees are moderately expensive for what you get, but the appetizers, especially Happy Hour pricing, are a good value, like just about anywhere else, but better tasting.

This is one of my go-to places for Fridays after work.
