Who isn’t looking for that perfect place to call their home away from home? Well, you’re in luck! Such a place exists at Capital Ale House


Not only will you be welcomed with open arms, but you’ll be served the finest craft beers and local cuisine while listening to some of the best live music in town! Capital Ale House has a little something for everyone – so pull up a chair, pick your pour and make some memories.


Richmond is widely known for its extensive variety of restaurants that offer amazing food and robust wine lists. It’s come a long way, but in years past, many beer selections at restaurants resembled that of your corner 7-Eleven, a fact which did not go unnoticed by Matt Simmons & Chris Holder. Thus, the notion of Capital Ale House was born.



Inspired by the beer culture celebrated in places such as Germany, Matt and Chris sought to provide their own community with a place where you can pull up a chair and not only be served good food, but great beer as well. Putting their own spin on it and tapping into Virginia’s local market, the Cap Ale Team loves to share that, “their beef was born and raised right here” or that, “your beer was brewed just across the river.”



It’s places like Capital Ale House where you’re encouraged to create great memories in the company of good people and that make us loyal to local.
