One of my favorite places to enjoy a top quality beer. The draft (14 taps) list is always varied and interesting, with local,out of state and international brews. The rotation is great and the quality is always exceptional.
The staff are really friendly and enthusiastic and always keen to help and suggest. Paradiso does regular tastings and tap takeovers with meet and greet sessions to boot. The pizzas are great and there is always a special one made to be paired with a beer. Great place for beer loving parents with pizza loving kids. A beer heaven in Old Town.

Good location in Alexandria. Interior design is on the cheesy side. Ambiance is sorely lacking, but that is why I think I like it. Sitting in the bar area, it is so easy to ignore everyone around you and just pick up loads of dank beer.
The food is of high quality. They focus on using a minimum number of ingredients and choosing those of the best quality. Complimentary olives are pretty great too.
The Beer. The beer is expensive on not happy hour, but is cheap during happy hour. Half price. That means I can get awesome Belgian beers on tap for 5 bucks. American beers during happy hour will be even cheaper. The tap changes enough to keep things interesting. I went twice in one month and only one beer was the same. Cask beers are pretty cool as well. The best thing about this location is that there are more happy hour days than in in the Dupont location.
The people who work there are mad chill and know what a beer is.

Nice place in the heart of Old Town Alexandria. Friendly staff, great locals. of course, the usual well-chosen beer list from Greg Jasgur. This one has a better bar space that the Dupont location, but not quite as good as the Georgetown location. Definitely the top beer location in Alexandria,, and possibly in Virginia.

Stopped by for lunch and had some excellent beers on draft The pizza was also quite good. Four 4 oz flights for $12 seemed pretty reasonable and provided a way to taste a broad selection without getting snockered.

Pretty standard restaurant vibe. Every employee i dealt with was extremely friendly and helpful. Decent sized tap list with great variety. Large bottle list. Food is solid. Prices are very high but not necessarily exhorbiant for the area. Worth a stop if youíre in Old Town.

They do get some good stuff on draft here -- was pleased to get Founders Breakfast Stout right from the keg. For a small place the bottle list is good. Old Town is great neighborhood, but it always presents challenges in terms of parking and its a bit of a hike from the metro. I havenít tried the food, but Iím rating it based on what Iíve heard from others -- so take my opinion there with a grain of salt.

Good beer selection on draft and bottle, and it always seems to have a cask on tap. If you have kids get there and order before 6 and they eat free :-)

This is a pretty well placed restaurant located in downtown Old Town Alexandria. Parked a few blocks away, walked there. The place was packed - both the bar and the front part of the restaurant. Friends had a table so didnít have to wait through that mess.
Iíve just been here for happy hour, so I havenít had any of the food - I suspect itís as good as it looks. Beer selection was very nice, though both their beer menu and their board was woefully out of date (and neither matched) when I went there on Veterans Day.

A nice, open place in Old Town, though it can be very loud when they are busy; there is nothing to absorb the sound. The pizzas are good, and the choices varied, though the crust is a bit brittle. The beer selection is solid, and rotates regularly. Service is great, with everyone being attentive and caring about your experience.
