This is Shelly with Main Line Brewery in Richmond. We would love to be added to your list of brewery and band destinations. We have bands every Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We have an indoor stage as well as a covered outside stage. Starting in July we will also have bands on Thursday evenings through August.
How can you not have Old Busthead on the list. I have noticed that not many places get listed if they are in or close to northern Virginia.
