Stopped in on a Saturday in the middle of the afternoon. Street parking only. There is a bit of a sports bar feel to the place, but with a lot of woodwork. The most impressive part about this place was the whiskey selection. Pappy 23 on the shelf. The beer wasnít great, but I got a sampler to try as many as I could. The barrel aged stout was nice. Pricing was decent. I got out for about $12. Didnít order food.

(backlogged in abstinence) Visited 09/2012. Sportsbar feel on the main downtown drag, nearly empty just around/after happy hour. Nice inside/outside bar sitting made less relevant by forgettable brewpub brews and so-so student service (had a sampler of 5 and 2 pints, all down the drain of oblivion). (on par with the DC Capitol City Brewing franchise).

This is a nice location for the BBC but its biggest drawback is that Against the Grain, Doc Crowes, and Haymarket arenít too far away either. If you are at the theater and desperate for some craft beer it might serve you well enough. Just lower your expectations regarding the quality of the beers which can be hit or miss.

If you want the full BBC experience make the trip out to St Matthews and visit the original brewpub. Despite its own parking issues they have a better selection and happy hour prices let you try a few beers to find out that is palatable.

One of the downtown BBC locations on the touristy Fourth St. A sports pub-esque feel. They had 4-5 regulars and 2 seasonals on tap. The particular beers I tried (a smoked alt and esb) were decent, but not great. Iíve also been to the tap room location, which has a cozier atmosphere, but the two are similar. I am just not a big fan of their beer, so I would maybe recommend stopping by for a pint just to check them out, but not make this a destination spot.

Nice location right across from the Brown. Very pleasantly surprised with the food here. We had a group of 11 and everyone enjoyed their meals and the service was great. Multiple taps and beers to go. Seasonal selections. We would go again.

Stopped by for a sampler and appetizer. Typical looking brewpub, fairly nice and clean. Service was really good and friendly. Selection was pretty lacking, just the regular line up with a seasonal Wit beer. Prices were good but the sampler seemed overprices for quality and quantity of beer. If youíre in the area maybe stop by, otherwise Iíd skip it.

Stopped in for a beer. Located in an older building with a nice large wooden bar with a few tvs. Bartender was helpful and quick. Only about 6 beers on tap when I visited. Didnít do food during my visit. Prices were good but not great. Nothing special here especially with the other places around town.

Pretty good place. Brewpub with half a dozen to a dozen brews on draft. Pretty good beer, but nothing spectacular.
