I got the same idea man. The guys at West Sixth in Lexington have let me jump behind the scenes and I'm learning a ton. Best part time job I've ever had. Congrats!

Well - perhaps you will work your way up to a brewery with better beer ( I feel Capitol is a very corporate beer).

HOWEVER - congrats and well done and learn a lot.

Congrats! They make some good German Lagers with the exception of Supper Club. Capital and Leinie's were my gateway beer to craft beer. When are they open? I live right by there and have only gone to functions at the brewery.

NICE! I toured that brewery in college (yikes! close to 10 years ago) as I was becoming a beer snob. I still have the little beer mug shot glass they gave us.

Congrats! I like to drink some of their beer, particularly the Blonde Doppelbock.

Nice! Capitol makes some good beers, although I find the more commonly available ones (particularly Supper Club) to be a bit overrated.

You should use your influence (which I'm sure you've got tons of ) to get them to quit using screwtop bottles- the only reason I don't buy much of their beer anymore is because I can't recycle the bottles to fill with my own!
