Neat place. Decent location. Their beers are OK. Itís definitely not the first or second place Iíd choose to go to to get beer. But anyway, food is good, and they brew their own beer. Plus itís downtown at the Metro Center METRO station. So itís convenient.

Eight taps with a pretty standard brewpub template to the styles. Very large open space. Loud sports bar atmosphere. Service at the bar was fine, but the hostess ignored me for awhile before coming to seat me. Good location downtown, but not worth going out of your way for.

Nice ambience and in walking distance from the JW Marriott. Staff was friendly and accommodated a group of ten easily. They had four of their normal beers on tap with an additional five rotating. Beers are average, food is good. Price is good for the DC area.

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.
