Richmond Taps the Oberon

Bells Oberon tappings are happening nationwide today, March 26th.  Richmond is no different. In fact, I know of at least three places around town where you’ll be able to snag some of this beer: 

Whole Foods Short Pump
11173 W. Broad St.
Glen Allen, VA23060
(804) 364-4050

Cary St Cafe

Capital Ale Anniversary Beer: Month 2

Capital Ale House continues their tenth anniversary celebration with another exclusive beer.  This time the beer is from a relatively unknown brewery, Wild Wolf Brewing.  They will gifting Cap Ale their 3 Legged Scotsman.  I haven’t been able to find out much about the style of this beer but I’m guessing a scotch ale or maybe a bourbon barrell stout.  Head out to the nearest Cap Ale location for the tapping at 6pm.  Fredericksburg, I hope to be stopping your way.
