RVA Homepage Beer        It's Craft Beer Month!   



The Richmond region has always had history, for about 400 years. But, unless you've stopped by the Capital of the South recently, you might not know that there's been another revolution. There's been a craft beer revolution, a food revolution, a fashion revolution and an arts revolution. Come see us and find out why we're a Travel + Leisure Top Destination and National Geographic said we're a place to travel for food.

We've got over 18 craft breweries, some of the best restaurants in the country, homegrown start ups, murals and street art all over our buildings and walls. We've also got the only class III & IV urban rapids in the entire country, and you can swim in our mighty James River. Ready to take another look?
