Everyone around me was drinking Miller Lite and Bud Lite, except for the guy next to me who ordered a Guinness - even though they had a dry Irish stout brewed on premises. Do people know what a brewpub is? Or do they just let TV commercials make all their decisions for them? Holy shit, America! Get a clue!!! OK, now thats offmy chest, this place was similar to other SweetwTer locations, except they served their beer ice cold - I mean with actual bits of ice floating in it. Other than that, generic strip mall brewpub.

Ugh. Every one of these places has the same crowd - the boring office drones who come here for a night out of drinking, but in their safe little suburban way. It was crowded with these folks, but the bartenders were fantastic anyway - they have to be since these crowds usually tip well. So I sat there soaking in the atmosphere of this dead and boring crowd, wishing I was somewhere else. Drank my one beer in a quieted rush and got the heck out of there. Man, the WASPy suburban crowd just loves places like this.

A large, open brewpub in the DC Metro area with two sister pubs. The food is pretty good and reasonably priced. The service is efficient though uneducated. There are typically 5 or 6 house beers available. Even if they look busy, stop by because they turn over tables very quickly.

This is the second Sweetwater location that I’ve visited. It’s quite cozy inside, seating wise, but with high ceilings and a large window adding some light it seemed a bit more open. I showed up around lunchtime and the place was absolutely packed. There was a 20-30 minute wait for a table so I opted for the bar. The beers were solid, but none really stood out. The people here were exceptionally friendly, as they were at the Centreville location. Customer service must be a real emphasis at this company. I did not order food.

Only been once in the bar area but plenty of times in the dining area with family. Good amount of dining seating and a decent sized bar with three sides plus some outer seats. Fills up around happy hour and dinner rush. Only 5 of their house beers on tap with 2 staples and 3 rotating selections, I believe they have bottles of macros as well. House beers are average to good, occasionally a gem on tap. Food has always been top notch and the fish special is always a favorite of mine. No complaints with service, generally good and attentive. Come here with the food in mind and the beer mostly as a compliment.

Stopped in to try the beer. Food looked good, but I’d just eaten lunch. Good service at the bar - they try to make it friendly. Small amount of beer available, but of decent quality. Really liked the wit. Wouldn’t mind going back for a meal.

As others have written this place was packed. Service is good at the bar, slow at the tables. Typical American ice cream parlor flavored brewery. Beers were middle of the road. They change them too often to realy perfect them. Not a place to relax or talk in.

Happy hour time or so, before 6pm. Sat at the bar. Had a wonderful bartender. Other bartenders were nice as well, and had wonderful conversations with everyone. Gave advice on which beers he (the bartender) liked most, and let me sample some of them. Loved the decor, and thought that the atmosphere was fantastic. Like all other Great American resturants, the food is great.

Good food, ok beer with, as Dan noted, a very limited selection on any given visit. Good service, busy place.

Large open restaurant with booths surrounding central bar ( like Houston’s). Beer selection is mix of house drafts and big box crap. Service is team approach, which can get annoying. Food is pretty good, though. If wait is longer than 15 minutes, go elsewhere.
