Just want to let you know we have just signed a lease for a space in the Historic Distric of Fredericksburg, Va. It's an 11,000 square foot space at 917 East Caroline Street. The space resembles the Downtown Richmond location in that its 25' wide by 267' long.
Most of the building is pre-civil war and plans are to renovate it to the look and feel of our other locations, add 75 taps, 250+ in the bottle and we're planning on a 300 square foot temperature controlled beer cellar under the bar.
Hope to see everyone there for a beer later this year.
I know everyone's at the "we'll believe it when we see it" stage with the Midlothian location, but the signs are on the building there and things are starting to roll. It will be open soon.
Capital Ale House has two locations currently in the Richmond area with a third scheduled to open soon. This new, fourth, venue in Fredericksburg would be a significant addition to the craft beer scene in this area. The two current Capital Ale Houses have been rated among the top beer bars in America by BeerAdvocate. I'll post more information on the Fredericksburg opening as it becomes available.
Update, Jan 12: The Free Lance-Star has an article in today's Business section about the new restaurant. The author incorrectly calls Capital Ale House a "brew pub".
