Nice spot in Falls Church with house brewed craft beers. Plenty of free parking in the adjacent parking garage. Good sized bar with comfortable bar seats and a community table in front of the bar. Decent amount of tables and booths for groups. Bar service is normally pretty good, table service can be hit or miss from my experience. Nice amount of draft beers along with three casks, their kolsch is almost always available along with at least one IPA. Half pints available, just ask. Growler fills available for most if not all drafts, plus 1/2 off for Tuesdayís tapping special. Most of the food is fantastic, the bitterballen, pizzas, and Bacon Jam burger are a few of my favorites. Carryout is also available for pizza and possibly other items.

Visited for brunch. Massive place also with some outdoor seating. Flights available of the fairly good Mad Fox brews. Good service and good food.
Modern styled brewpub with a large bar and plenty of tables and booths filling out the interior. Large place, so it definitely isnít cramped inside. Always plenty of rotating house beers to try with a few regulars that stay on. Everything Iíve had here has been solid, but I canít say Iíve had anything really great either. Great food menu to compliment the beers with some great pizza choices. Free garage parking is another definite plus. Solid place and worth a visit.
Nice wood bar but it feels a little contrived. 11 house taps this day. Service was okay. Didnít eat.

Cavernous space, nondescript. Usually have 8-10 in- house beers on tap. Food has improved, and now holds its own.

Nice food selection. 12 or so qualityhouse beers on tap.
Update January 2013: went to the Burnís night dinner and the food was nothing short of spectacular -- way superior to any other brewpub or bar food -- and would hold its own against many fine restaurants.
Modern, if almost cookie cutter corporate chain looking brewery cum restaurant interior. Thankfully the food and beer are much higher quality than Capitol City Brewing or the likes. Service was much better as well. Very courteous, attentive, allowed us to stay in the main dining room until almost 11pm with no hassle. Could get $1.50 samples of everything on tap so I just went buck wild. Some great beers here. The Oaked Ivan was insanely good as well as their Dingo IPA and Two hemispheres IPA. Some of the beers tapped werenít on the beer menu yet so make sure to ask the server. The ífricklesí or fried pickles were awesome. Fig and balsamic white pizza was excellent. We spent about $50 for two people including tip. So a bit higher end, dress code is causal, interior is slightly more formal looking. Nice patio seating. Parking garage inside the complex is free, a first in the DC area. Had a great time.
August 2011. Went early on a Saturday and was sorely disappointed to find out that many of their kegs had kicked the night before and had not been replaced. They were also out of a food item that we had wanted to order, but I canít recall what it is now. Their pizzas were very tasty, and creatively topped. I would give this place another shot just for the food. The beer was tasty, the saison was well liked by our group, and I was a fan of the wee heavy.
Massive space located in an upscale development though it feels more like a movie set of a brewpub than an actual brewpub. Itís oddly designed. For examples they have this massive bar area and this massive dining area but the only bathrooms were behind the conditioning tanks. I hate bars that have bathrooms that are far from the staging area. We visited on a busy Sunday night and for some reason they only had one bartender so service was rushed and stressful. The beers I had were fairly solid so I might try those again but the food was not good. The pizza continues DCís reputation for dodgy pizza. I had hoped this was going to be a better experience so Iím a bit disappointed it wasnít.
Very much the sleek brew pub as Travlr pointed out. The beers that I tried are average, if a bit boring. Itís still a young pub, so hopefully with time the beer will become more adventurous. The pretzel bites were great but the pizza crust was hard and difficult to chew. I would come back to try it again.

Sleek and modern brewpub with some brightening tanks plunked down in the middle. Three handpulls, although only one was on during my visit. Beers are OK, available in 4 four ounce pours fir six bucks. No complaints.
