Capital Ale House has an extensive list of beers, draft, bottles, and cans - with a good number from the many local breweries. The wait staff & bar staff are knowledgeable and friendly. And the food is quite good as well.

Had a wonderful table for eight away from everyone else so we could hear each other talk. Wait staff was very attentive, answering questions about the meals and beer list - brought us some samples to help us choose, which we really appreciated.
