National Beer Expo

1500 East Main Street
Richmond, VA 23219


The Capital Ale House National Beer Expo (NBE) is a national destination event celebrating artisan-made American craft beer and the Richmond region's culinary, brewing and cultural excellence.

Set in the middle of summer during Virginia's rich harvest season, the NBE reflects the changing landscape of America's beer industry. This premiere event reflects the continuing drive on the part of America's craft brewing entrepreneurs to make unique beers that offer extraordinary flavors and complexity and that taste good either on their own or with great food. Thus, the Expo offers a collection of premium events that explore the astounding quality of American craft beer and how those beers pair with a wide range of gourmet, farm-to-table and ethnic cuisines. 

The Expo is intended to enlighten, educate and enrich both the palate and the intellect, whether the attendee be a novice craft beer drinker, foodie or a home or aspiring "pro" craft brewer.
