Upscale strip mall style, but pleasant enough. Emphasis is clearly on the food, at least in the restaurant portion, and the entrees did not disappoint. Impressive beer list, more than a dozen on draught, seven or so additional pages of bottles. Classifications were not helpful, but maybe that is quibbling. Worth trying.

Nicely designed, faux high class type building in a somewhat out of place gentrified section of a neighborhood. Inside is low lightning, open, high ceilings, modern wood and metal but not ultra modern (WTF does that mean?). Tap selection is good, definitely serious about their beer, and occasionally they’ll have something uber rare, such as the Scherlenkerla Festbier. Prices are outrageously expensive if you don’t get 1/2 price drafts during happy hour, and food prices are also ridiculously expensive, with no happy hour food specials. Pizza will be $10-15, entrees are $20+ mostly, and draft prices are $6-10. For these prices I can go eat and drink at Brasserie Beck instead. Caveat emptor.

Located in a newish development outside of Alexandria. It was a very comfortable bar space with very nice chairs and bathrooms close to the staging area. Obviously there was a lot of thought to mood and the drinking experience. They had 25-30 taps plus 2 on cask. The prices were typical of the DC area although the price on the JW Lees Harvest Ale was very reasonable. I’ll definitely be back.

Nice place in Alexandria with a pretty good beer selections. Two cask ales rotate through, along with many bottled beers, some rather expensive. The food is plentiful and very tasty, fresh. The service is quite attentive.

Same owners as Churchkey, Neighborhood Restaurant Group, and comes across at Churchkey Lite with a big focus on beer but smaller tap list and smaller bottle list, but still huge compared to most beer bars. Interior is spacious, more like a corporate design inside rather than custom like CK. Tap list had much less bizzare stuff, only perhaps 1 or 2 beers I had never had before. Offers small pours of tap beers, which is nice. Pizzas were very nice. Loved the Greek pizza. Took my grandfather here actually and he enjoyed his pizza as well. Quick service. I liked it. Excellent place to stop by especially if picking up or dropping off someone at Reagan National that is only about a mile away. Only qualm is that the full menu is not available under 5pm or something so you are having the ’bar menu’ which is mostly sandwiches and pizzas. Thankfully the food was all very good.

I would say that this place is somewhat over-rated. The beer selection is very solid however, pales in comparison to Churchkey. however, they make up for with decent food and solid service. I had a burger and it was pretty tasty. Pretty modern decor at the corner of an up and coming neighborhood in Alexandria. Decent place but there are much better in the DC area.

Very modern and trendy restaurant bar. Crowd is mixed, but seems to be heavy on the 25-35 young professionals. I stopped in two nights in a row. The first night, I caught the tail end of a DFH tasting and a buzzed Sam Caglione was still there. In fact, he was blocking the path to the pisser ignored me when I said "excuse me." The second night (wednesday) was a little slower and not as noisy, which is more my speed. They have one engine and a nice rotating tap list. Bottle selection covers a broad spectrum. Prices are a tad high (at least what I am used to), as a standard 12 ounce bottle of micro starts at $5. I did not eat, but the Pizzas looked delicious. I do have one gripe. I tried calling them to see how late they would be open and to get directions around the construction. What do I get? An answering machine that directs me to the web site. Uh- it’s hard to surf the web while driving. You have a phone line- answer it! All in all, this is a very nice place to have a beer. Alexandria badly needed a place like this. If you are staying in the area, I highly recommend you stop by. It is much easier than going into DC.

Open and airy place with a modern feel, despite the name. Good pizza and other grub, with the diverse and interesting beer list we’ve come to expect from Greg Engert & Co. I appreciate the well-chosen mix of American craft and interesting imports. Wish it were more convenient to the Metro line, but it is walkable in fair weather.

Was back here last night, and I have to say that my original score was way too low. Excellent draft/cask/bottle list, and outstanding food. Our server was also very attentive (and knowledgeable) without getting in the way. The only "complaint" is that the place isn’t a bargain, but I certainly can’t say it’s overpriced either (FWIW, the HH beer discounts improve the price significantly).
(7/1/06) New place in Alexandria with good tap selections (Duchess, DFH, Left Hand, Dominion, Victory, etc.) and extensive bottle selection (nothing rare, but plenty of good stuff). Food was decent, and service was friendly though a bit slow (sat in the bar section). Beers are reasonably priced. Modern decor.

Nice restaurant with a good beer selection. about 20 taps with high quality and regional drafts. Extensive bottle list. prices are on the high side on par with the area. Food is very very good. More worthwhile visit for the food, but have a solid beer collection. It is not really near old town which is where all the other bars and restaurants are, unfortunately.
