You go here for the beer. Whether you’re 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, it’s try the beer then buy the beer, and I leave a happy customer.

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. There’s 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 don’t 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. They’re 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.

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 breweries’ 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.

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 - can’t beat that for good service!
