Very friendly staff, large comfortable bar, lots of TVs. Decent food, nothing special. Rotating selection of brews, most are good. More cozy and friendly than the Capitol area location, but not as impressive interior.

Ehh... beer is ok, never terrible but rarely stellar. Food is kinda crappy due to a new manager. Crowd is blah. Youíll find some new beers to rate but for this local itís not a place I like to go.

Visited July 2011.
First beer place visited in DC and (I think) my first beers sampled made in DC though these may not count as DC-=brewed anymore. This place is large with plenty of tables surrounding a bar. I sat at the bar and ordered the flight. This was just before the dinner rush so service was prompt and fairly friendly. Most of the beers were regular styles but I did get to try a keller pils which was pretty good. The rest were OK. Itís an easy stop from the subway so I would probably stop in for some ticks the next time in DC but thatís about it. Canít comment on the food. The prices were OK.

(Visited 08/2009): This Capitol City location is right downtown on the corner of New York and 11th. There are pay lots nearby which is what we used, but there is surely public transportation nearby as it is close to Union Station.
The outside kind of looks like a 50ís diner with all the chrome and neon. The interior is spacious with windows nearly floor to ceiling. Hand-painted murals adorn the wall and the bar is U-shaped and near the entrance. The rest of the main floor is split level table seating, and it looked like there was an upstairs as well. They also have a lot of kegs up near the ceiling for decorations(?).
The beer selection is decent, although I was bummed this location did not actually brew beer on site. They have around 7 taps and the beers are available in a sampler. They range from an Organic Wit to a Smoked Porter, with everything in the middle being more or less standard brewpub fare.
Service was good on a weekday lunch. Both the server and manager stopped by several times and were happy to chat about beer.
The food at Capitol City is good. I had a crab cake sandwich that was solid. Good fries too.
Overall this spot is worth visiting between tourist attractions if you are hiking around downtown.

The set up is a little different from the other two locations in that there are no brew tanks at the bar. Otherwise, everything else is the same. The servers were running all over the place, but there were only two bartenders attempting to serve a packed bar and all restaurant drink requests. There were three seasonal on tap at my visit.

Very large, high ceilinged room. Lots of bright light. Unfortunately, loaded with TVs as well. Very friendly wait staff and the food was decent, if somewhat uninspired. The beers were better than average and the prices were fair. Canít complain about it, but I wouldnít seek it out either.

Located in an extremely boring part of DC surrounded by hotels and office buildings- no city vibe. More like an Applebeeís food and drink wise. Waitstaff is clueless about beer, the beer served is very low quality. Usually served frozen cold without head formation. All had some brewing flaws. Food was substandard. Depressing venue and decor. Drab, cheap, and outdated. An anachronism from when DC was clueless about craft beer.

Have visited this venue a couple of time, originally in í05 and most recently in June í11.
Large open plan modern looking brewpub, lots of glass, metal etc with the bar centrally located.
Service was decent and I was offered some samples.
House beers are ok/nothing special although amongst the pale ales and European style imitations they did have (wasnít ticking/rating at this particular point in time so no notes) a decent 10% ish coffee imperial stout on!

Visited this location on April 14th, 2008. The pub is huge and well decorated, very typical chain decor. The beer was good, no default, albeit the sampler was a bit expansive. I did manage to substitute a crap beer by the Fuel imperial stout. Monday to Friday, they have an half price appetizer and 2.50$ pint Happy Hour from 4 to 7PM, which is really worth it. Looking forward to my trip here.

A high cealinged room, quite modernly decorated with large windows and big bar area - seemed like a good place to go for an after work beer in Your suit - but not that cozy. 7 beers on when I visited - though only 2 different from the Hill location. The service was OK, but didnít excel.
