What does it say about Richmond that the best beer list award goes not to a taphouse or brewery but to a Vietnamese restaurant? It says that beer lovers are savvy enough to appreciate owner An Bui's long-time laser focus on all things hop-related. If you're looking to meet other home brewers, up your beer cred or widen your beer-geek circle, showing up at Mekong is all it takes. With its multi-page beer menu, Capital Ale House never fails to get fans in the door, not to mention the steal the glass nights, cask tastings or brews and blues. Sedona Taphouse hasn't been around as long but its free Sunday craft beer tastings and seminars have turned into a popular and informative way to spend an afternoon.
