On the street parking which was a pain. Nice contemporary atmosphere. Selection was okay, but I came to have a bottle Allagash Century (it was listed as available on their website and on their paper menu) and was not available. The pretzel bites and butcher block pizza were just okay. Value was pretty good. The waiter didnít know much about beer. I just donít feel like this place was worth it.

Came here for dinner and sat outside. Decent food, albeit a limited menu, and some really good rare beers on tap. Would come back.

Big, comfortable, open, fairly upmarket restaurant. A little loud. Large range of beers: ~20 on tap and many more bottles - a large menu book. Pleasant and efficient service. Food was decent.

This is a regular stop for me when Iím in town because the hotel where I stay is just a few blocks away. It has an upscale but relaxed ambiance. I always sit at the bar and the bartenders have all been friendly and knowledgable. The draft and bottle selections are both pretty extensive and Iím usually able to find a few new hoppy ticks. Iíve never eaten there, but the food always looks great. Looking forward to a return visit this summer.

Pretty solid place. Busy on a Monday night, in part surely because the Skins were on MNF, but still. Bartendress was nice and knew her beer, but she was far more interested in the game than her customers. Pretty solid taplist, but it is a measure of my beer geekiness that I had rated about 25-30 of them already. Bottle list was pretty solid - two beers on my wants list were consumed. Pizza was good, not great. All in all a place I would go back to if I were in the area.

Definite upscale vibe which leads to a very mixed crowd. Service is generally friendly. Tap and bottle selection is very comparable to Church Key in my opinion. Prices are similarly inflated but thatís to be expected for the area. Having eaten here many times, the food ranges from mediocre to outstanding depending on what you order. The pizza is usually a pretty solid bet. To me this place is a pretty good alternative to Church Key minus some of the special events.

Wonderful beer selection much the same as Churchkey and the other Rustico. I probably prefer the Atmosphere of the Alexandria location though. Huge tap list, and prices on par with the others. Sample 4 oz pours available of everything. Didnít even look at the bottle list, as tap list had so much stuff I hadnít tried.

Stopped by during the SAVOR week festivities. Street parking, so I imagine that totally sucks after business hours, as there are several restaurants around here. Smart looking place, upscale, but not terribly interesting. Nicely shaded outdoor patio. The bartenders were nice enough despite being insanely busy. Those not working the bar were pretty friendly. World class draft list with rarities. Definitely American focused during my visit, but that was due to a takeover event and I imagine they have a more eclectic selection normally, as they did have some rarer foreign selections on tap. I didnít look at a bottle list, but they did have an extensive bottle selection in coolers behind the bar, and I did see another customer drinking Perennial Abraxas, which is neat. Prices are not terrible. 9 four ounce tasters cost me $31 but some of those were for some very rare selections. I did not try the food. It was so busy I didnít even try. Definitely a solid place to stop.

Nice option for food and drinks just a five or so minute walk from Ballston Metro. Visited during the Hardywood/Cigar City SAVOR event. Decent sized curved bar with tables around and a dining area. Service was ok, spotty at times. Food was good, tried the brisket cheesesteak with fries. Solid varied tap list, didnít check out the bottle list. Good option if happen to be around Ballston and want a solid bar to visit.
