RICHMOND, Va. -- Richmond is home to many craft breweries. So many, in fact, it can sometimes be overwhelming to not only decide where to go but also what to try when you get there.

Fortunately, there are people like Eric Jackson around to help.

Jackson is a beer experience curator.

He uses his social platforms Uncap Everything and Capsoul to demystify Richmond's craft brew scene for anyone who wants to learn more. He is also working to bridge the gap between Richmond breweries and Richmond's Black community.

"I think since we started Capsoul, I know there are more Black people in Richmond that are drinking beer. And not only drinking beer but going to the breweries because I think a lot of people are drinking beer but it's like I don't want to go there because I don't feel like I fit in or whatever the case may be. So our again, back to creating that experience around beer. That's what Capsol does, we do events at breweries and make that experience for people."

So which Richmond beers sit atop Eric's list? And what led him to Richmond in the first place? Listen to this week's "Eat It, Virginia!" podcast for those answers and so much more.
