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.

I inadvertently showed up the day of the Armageddon can release so it was really packed. Decent space and employees were all friendly. Decent selection. Some solid collabs. Will have to go back on a normal Saturday and take a tour.

Checked this place out yesterday (1/19/13). Very hidden, in a alley behind a post office. Inside struck me as almost "college like", graffiti art adorned the place with sitting tables placed around. Very open. Busy place that day, tour came with 4 free samples. Tour itself was straight forward. Learned that they will be expanding distribution to MD early 2013 so good news for me. Left with some 6 packs, a bomber and a t-shirt. Enjoyed the visit, I wish them the best!

Visited the Saturday after Thanksgiving and there was a comfortable crowd of cooler DC people. For a brewery this place had a good really good vibe. Just the right amount and kind of attitude. And most importantly their beer rocks. Definitely one of the best newer small breweries on the East Coast. I wish they had more options pouring though. The flagship stuff was well priced. The specials were expensive...but that goes with the territory. Awesome brewery.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Small brewery packed away in the back of a light-industrial park. Pretty busy and cramped inside, but everyone was friendly.

Missed the tour because I was waiting in the super-long line for my growler fill. Thereís a lot of room to grow in this place. If you come later, the selection to try is pretty paltry - They only had The Public on tap and for growler fills by 3:30. They donít serve the food, but they seem to have a rotating number of vendors/restaurants that come to serve up some food.

Update: Been to this place more times than I can count. Theyíre expanding into the space next to them and their beer selection has gone up. They almost always have the standards canned each week with them virtually always on tap along with a rotating number of specialty brews available both on draft and in bombers.
