Richmond, Virginia (RVA) is the host city and state for the 3rd Annual Capital Ale House National Beer Expo (CAHNBE) and has been experiencing a veritable explosion in the number of craft breweries opening the last several years. Nine new breweries are expected to open in RVA in 2016, including the massive Stone Brewery and another much anticipated brewery called The Veil Brewing.

We want to give you a special preview of what you’ll get to taste at the Expo by holding simultaneous brewery parties this Thursday evening, at various participating breweries throughout RVA and Virginia.  These events can range from beer release parties to beer and food pairings to tap takeovers.   The events are up to the participating breweries.

These events will be posted on this page periodically over the next several months as we get closer to the Expo, so please check back often!

Ticket Details:

You do not need to purchase a ticket from the event website to attend the brewery parties. However, each brewery may have their own tasting and/or food fees. 

Details on the parties will be gradually added to this page throughout the Spring.
