Typical operating brewery/tasting room set up, with the brewing equipment taking up a large portion of the space inside. Five draft options (with a sampler option), with cans/bottles/growler fills for take away. A few picnic tables up front and a corn hold set-up as well. Family and dog friendly; probably a pretty chill spot to hang out for locals. In the hierarchy of beer spots in DC, this is behind Bluejacket/Right Proper/Churchkey, especially given the fact that itís a bit out of the way. So not a "must visit" place compared to some of the other options available. But if youíre visiting and have the time, you can grab an Uber out here and hit both Atlas and DC Brau, which are about a 10-15 walk from one to the other.

Great small specialty brewery. This place was built to make great local beer not to impress the visitors. Industrial set-up in an industrial neighborhood. The beer is great, the people are friendly, the atmosphere is authentic.Welcome addition to the tri-state area.

I liked this a little less than Chocolate City, which has a more earthy, less pretentious vibe to it. Heavy on hipster quotient here, but there are fun activities like bean bag throwing and such for those who come for that. There were only three taps on when I was there, and nothing you canít find easily around town. Service takes a while, but itís free on Saturday tastings so who cares.

Went there a few weeks ago after headed to DC Brau and Union Market. Tucked away in an industrial park, like all other area breweries. Best parking is somewhere on the streets, no parking lot as far as Iím aware. Some sketchy looking establishments along the way.
Place seems smaller than I expected - low celings, but wide and deep. Itís one big room. Acoustics are terrible, so the tour might be a bit hard to hear if thereís a lot of people in the group. Samplers per current (as of May 2014) DC Law. Theyíre getting good exposure around town, so itís not exactly a necessity to visit if youíve had their beers. As they grow, I imagine that will change.

I have been to Atlas a few times to fill growlers. Industrial block of DC with street parking. Not really metro accessible. You could probably get over here by bus though. Fairly raw space, which I personally like. Tasting bar is nice though, comfortably fits probably 20 at the bar with standing room for many more. Always four beers on tap for tasters. No pints (DC law). Staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. Fairly good value on growlers and merch. I will definitely swing through when they have new items and when I tire of the line ups with the other DC breweries. Maybe a 10min drive from DC Brau, so definitely worth checking out.

Great set-up inside, interesting neighborhood outside. No pints, per DC law, but samples available and the service was great and the growler fills were very quick. They use counter pressure fillers so the un-opened growlers stay fresher for longer.

Atlas is what I call my little home brew operation, so I was disappointed to see a commercial brewery open up with that name. I visited anyway, parking on the street alongside the brewery. IDs were being checked as we walked up, but that only slowed us to our samples by a minute, and it was a worthy cause. There were three solid house beers on, leaving me wanting for their next selections.

Always nice to see a new brewery in the district! i visited on opening day, first customer, first tasters, first growler they had tons of staff on hand, always a good thing when you donít know what kind of a crowd to expect all three of their beers were on offer, as tasters and as growler fills, with a nice growler fill station the tasting area is a bar next to the cooler on one side of the brewery, so you drink amongst the barrels and FVs all three beers were very tasty so theyíre off to a nice start! This place will definitely be added to my regular Saturday brewery rounds. Best of luck!
