Absolutely the premier craft brewery in Richmond. Their IPA is next-level good. Among the best I've had anywhere in the world. The line moves fast, and the staff is friendly. The bar is a great atmosphere for hanging around for a few pints. Veil is a real asset to Richmond, and to the wider craft brewing community. I can't recommend it strongly enough.

Great venue for recent tourism / chamber mixer. Great selection of beers (since my first visit many months ago). Enjoyed their pilsner and stout. They also have several available in the can, and many were being bought !!

Wow. In a town with so many breweries the Veil really stands out as the classy operation. Such an incredible atmosphere and the beers are totally on point.

Veil was really a cool brewery to visit. Very comfortable inside with a great selection of craft beer styles. All were done well and there was a really nice selection of styles. A food truck was parked outside with some tasty stuff. Locals were very friendly and we really enjoyed our visit. Cheers !!!

The love The Veil's beer - only when I'm drinking it away from The Veil. I find their taproom to be terribly laid out, people are standing everywhere because there's way too little seating, and I inevitably get bumped by someone and spill my beer. The decor is industrial with a hipster vibe, but there's nothing warm to welcome you in.

The staff act like you should know about their beer before you get there, so first timers or the casual beer drinker are pretty put off. Asking about their beer caused the bartender to sign and half heartedly explain that what I was about to get was a 'strong IPA'. That's it. After closing your check, there isn't so much as a 'thank you for coming'... they just expect you to keep coming back because they know you will.

There's very little seating at the bar, and you have to line up to get your beer. Where you go from there seems to not be their problem. There is so much wasted space that if they put in more seating, I would probably want to stay longer, rather than just getting a beer and leaving as soon as possible. Plus, the seating they do have there is super uncomfortable. It's just not a good situation.

Do we go back every time we go to Richmond? Yes, but reluctantly. Their beer is amazing, but it's not a place I enjoy going or would stay long.
