Capital Ale House Project Virginia

Capital Ale House President Matthew Simmons recently announced a new commitment to support Virginia products. Simmons says Project Virginia is the Ale House's "plan of company goals and commitments to our guests, communities and State." The project's goals include an emphasis on Virginia beer and other alcoholic beverages.
Capital Ale House will make an increased commitment to the State of Virginia by setting a goal, July 2009 through June 2010, to purchase a minimum of $1,500,000 of services by Virginians and products grown, raised, caught, distilled, brewed and fermented in the State of Virginia.

Virginia Beer: We will stock and sell every available micro-brewed beer produced in the State of Virginia. We will strive to add more Virginia beer related events and greatly expand the upcoming 2nd Annual Virginia Beer Festival later this summer.

Virginia Wine: We will commit a minimum 30% of our wine list to Virginia wines and offer these wines by the glass as house pours.

Virginia Spirits: We have recently changed from the Russian made Stolichnaya Vodka as our house pour to the Gold Medal winning Cirrus Vodka. Not only is this vodka better, it’s made here in Richmond. We hope more premium spirits made in Virginia will be presented to us in the future.

Virginia Foods: Each of our restaurants will feature a daily 100 Mile Special. The main ingredient in these specials will have been produced, raised or caught by Virginians. We will, whenever possible, choose Virginia products first.

The focus on Virginia-produced beers is a great way to introduce more people to the many fine Virginia breweries. Capital Ale House will also be contributing to local charities with both monetary donations and by supporting Ale House employees who wish to devote time to community service projects. Kudos to Capital Ale House for their efforts to support the local economy.
