Nice place. Only had beer and dessert and both were great. Flight at the time had ten beers. Nice environment and friendly staff. Worth the stop and one of the better "larger" breweries I visited in DC.

Stopped in here with the family, when visiting DC for a meeting. Atmosphere is great - itís a corner restaurant with big glass windows facing the street, central bar and some different levels of seating. The beer, however, borders somewhere between average and bad (and we tried 6-7 offerings). Their amber, which is supposedly good, ran out. The food was above average and the service was average.

3/10/15 - Good food, great free pretzels, service hit or miss (sometimes excellent, sometimes poor - depends on the luck of the draw). Crowded during happy hour, folks file out afterward. Beer isnít very good.

A huge place downtown that was packed when I went around 7. They have a few average beers on tap that are adequate though nothing crazy. The pale ales are pretty decent. Clientele is a little too much on the business banker side for my liking. Service is good, and the free pretzels are a nice touch.

Its always a little of a bummer when you canít "sample" all of the beers at brewpubs. The keep most of their seasonals as full pours only. The pub itself is downtown surrounded by office buildings and caters to the sports crowd. The beers are pretty decent.

A nice brewpub in downtown DC (although technically not a brewpub as the beer is brewed elsewhere). A nice open restaurant, lots of seating, lots of TVs. They had around 8 taps on. The tap list definitely included some interesting beers - when I was there, I got to try a barrel aged imperial stout, Belgian golden ale with peaches, and low-alcohol IPA and all were excellent. I didnít have any of the food, but mostly it is standard pub fare. I thought the beers were great, they definitely have some interesting seasonals and are worth a stop.

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.
