Celiac Resturant Review: Capital Alehouse
Capital Alehouse is somewhat of a local restaurant, in that it was founded in Richmond area and only exists in Virginia. The fifth restaurant in the small chain opened in Harrisonburg this year, and it’s doing quite well in the old Cally’s space. 100 beers, 2 bars, and an outdoor deck certainly add to the draw. And it’s quite allergen friendly! They generally have at least one gluten-free beer (not on tap, which is safer, anyhow), a few ciders, and wine. The waitstaff gladly verifies the ingredient status of any menu item with the chef. I went on $2 burger night, and was also there in time to benefit from the 180 minutes of 1/2 price drinks. So, a very cheap meal, but great taste! I had a bun-less cheeseburger (cheddar, which is very low in lactose, tomato & lettuce) and a glass of Barboursville (Virginia!) wine. What a pleasure to eat out with friends, and actually EAT!
