Always great to see a new brewery in the district. This one is in a tight warehouse space, but is set to expand production enough to have a steady supply beyond just pub distro, hopefully this fall. Very compact canning line. Handful of barrels, always a welcome sight. Brews are tasty with good potential. Open on Saturdays for growler fills (and cans of just the pale ale for now). Staff hooked me up with a case on a day they were closed, and even showed me around - canít beat that for good service!

Not crazy on a Sunday visit with only a few folks in the taproom having beers. It was cool to check out the facility and working space. A few of the core beers on tap along with the new Oskar Blues collaboration. Tasters available for a few bucks. Crowler fills here. I can only imagine how hectic it gets other times due to the popularity of the brewery.

DC Brau is a fun but quite crowded tap room just inside the Districtís borders. The crew make your visit as enjoyable as possible despite the masses, and the food vendor du jour is worth the patronage. Treat yourself to a visit on any fine Saturday afternoon.

Yes you can go here to try the beer thatís on tap, then get growler fills, but they were only filling/tapping 4 different beers, 3 of which were their core series. So really only one beer of interest on tap. DC Brau cans and bottles their core series, so I donít see the need to get growler fills on those. Crowded for tours, a lot of people here and Iím trying to find out why. Only open on Saturday for 3 hours, so call ahead to see if anything of interest in available. There is nothing nearby to stay occupied so it is quite the journey for only one special beer on tap. Ambiance inside is cramped, loud. Plus side is that DC Brau is very popular and makes good beer, and Iím happy to see it is expanding and will probably last awhile. Sadly, I do not think the same thing for 3 Stars and Chocolate City.

Definitely a warehouse brewery. Parking seemed ample. Employees were friendly. Being open 3 hours a week, this place was PACKED. A mish-mash of couches, tables and chairs were scattered about a tasting room into the brewery. 4 pours were available, of ample size, and four beers were available. Beers were available to go as well. All of the beers were quite good, as has held true during my albeit limited experience with these guys. Growler fills were $10, $6 for glass and I did see them filling other breweriesí growlers. $10 for six packs. They only had one six-pack option when I was there, but DC is thirsty and these guys are seeing high demand. Which is good because I got a chance to talk to one of the brewers at length back in June, got to know that these are a cool bunch of people, so I really want them to succeed.

Visited 14/02/15. Standard industrial park location thatís a decent hike from the rest of DCís attractions. Plenty of parking options are available. All visitors get coupons for a couple of sample pours. Pints, growlers, and swagís also available for purchase. My visit coincided with a brewery tour, so the place was rammed. Luckily, the staff was pretty organized and I never had to queue too long to get a beer etc. DC Brau doesnít churn out a lot of new ticks, so regional power raters probably wonít find new things to try. Still, itís worth it to re-visit the core offerings from this brewery. Overall, worth a stop if youíre in the area and have access to a car.

Really wierd location, in the hood behind a Post office on the lower floor. Cool vibe, very metal/punk thing going on with graffiti everywhere! 4 free samples once you get in the door and they had OTWOA in cans as well. Can get crowded at times, but for Dcís only brewery, thats to be expected. Very cool place but hard to get to if you want to take public transport.

Been a bunch of times and always enjoy visiting. Once you show your ID to the door person, you get 4 tickets good for a beer sample each. Around 1-2 oz per sample. They arenít able to serve pints yet, but Red Apron at Union Market is a short drive and usually has DC Brau if youíre looking to enjoy a glass. Prices are reasonable for growler fills and canned selections. Bunch of merchandise including glasses, shirts, hats, growlers. Usually a food truck outside for growler hours. Pretty easy to get canned Wings here. Iíve only driven as metro is quite a long walk. Ample parking, place can be easy to miss as thereís no signage out front of the shopping strip. Just drive down the alley to the right of the post office.
Returned on 4/12/2015. No more free tasters, but you can get 3-4 oz pours for $2 a piece, or three for $5. Pints also available now. Havenít seen their expanded space yet. Other than that, itís about the same as my previous visits. Pretty low-key on Sunday at opening with no more than 5-10 customers during my stay.

Located in an industrial park in NE DC -- not yet gentrified. Decor is cinder block moderne. Nice murals though. Two free tasters just for showing up. Good deal for some good beers.

You go here for the beer. Whether youíre into the crowded scene of folks in search of free samples or a good food truck really is secondary to the great growlers you can take home at a fairly reasonable price. For me, itís try the beer then buy the beer, and I leave a happy customer.
