“Enjoyed the beer”
Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

We were hoping to enjoy the live music but got a loud thunderstorm instead. The pacifier was the great beer and I look forward to returning another time. It was crowded with cyclist's, maybe more so because of the storm, and they were serving pulled pork sandwiches that smelled amazing.

“Amezing place to hang out”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

We liked the lighter beers better. They have very old traditional bar which gives you very different feeling. Its small cozy place inside but the best part was live music they had at bar on Fri and it was just amazing. They dont have any made to order food sold at the bar, so be ready for "full liquid diet" :-) They also have open area outside where you can sit and enjoy. Unfortunately I couldn't be there when this beer garden opens. But otherwise too you can sit out there and have fun.

They also do paid tour on Fri / sat / sun in evening I guess 4 till 6 which starts at hr and goes around 30-40 mins. You get 4 samplers of your choice and souvenir glass as part of this guided tour. If you have been to such tour earlier you may not enjoy it too much for first timers its surely a good informative tour.

Overall we liked sitting at the bar more and would visit again for sure !!

“Great Beer and Great Fun!”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

Capital Brewery has great beer and a great place to sit outside and drink it!

Capital also has events year round including the infamous Bockfest where they release their two bock beers and throw an outdoor party in the middle of winter. It's like the Polar Bear challenge -- with delicious beer!

Would definitely recommend!

“Good Beer, Mediocre Tour”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

Staff is very friendly and helpful. The tour doesn't compare to other tours we have been on. But in their defense, the canning and bottling is done elsewhere, they only fill kegs at this location. The guide was very informative and funny but limited regarding the manufacturing end of the process! My wife and I enjoyed the beer tasting and liked the "Supper Club" and "Pumkinator". Would go back to the bar, would skip the tour !
