When I visited: Late September 2014.
What I had: Draft pint of Monocacy Humulus Lupulus Rex and an Insalata Paradiso for me, glass of sauvignon blanc and an Insalata Romana for my partner, Bosco Pizza to split.
What I liked: Casual, low-key atmosphere at lunch time, no trouble finding seats, had a nice view of the kitchen and wood oven from our table, scrumptious pizza that lives up to the hype, efficient service, solid bottle list, Iíll always remember this place since I proposed to my fiancť (girlfriend at the time) right after our meal.
What I disliked: Tap lineup wasnít nearly as good as I expected on our visit, waiter was quick to bring everything to the table but not all that friendly, with such a small bar and a clear focus on food I couldnít see myself coming here just to drink. That said, we enjoyed our experience here.
Would I go back? Most likely.
Overall Rating: 74
A family-friendly pizza restaurant just west of Dupont Circle. Just like the Georgetown location, thereís a very strong selection of beers available. In fact, about half of the people there during our Friday night visit seemed to be there to drink. The 15ish taps seemed to focus on stuff from outside of the US (Kiuchi, Trou du Diable) The bottle list is pretty large and impressive. I settled on a not inexpensive bottle of Tilquin Gueuze Squared and really enjoyed it. Service was great, prices were generally decent. I didnít eat, but Iíve tried the food at the other branch and can vouch for its quality. Overall, a great option if youíre looking to eat and drink at the same location. Recommended.
A cool place. Busy, but great fast service. Way too dark outside for me. Anyway, the pizza is small and expensive but worth it. A superb bottle list, and good drafts. Worth it just for the beer. Damn nice place.
Only been here around two times but have had a good experience on both visits. Small-ish bar area plus dining tables. Smaller beer list compared to other places though they have a nice bottle list. All the drafts have always been nicely selected. Flight of four 4 ounce taster pours for $12, not bad for the area. Pizzas are tasty and come in 8" and 12" sizes. Have only visited after lunchtime so I donít know how busy it gets before/after. Good service, friendly bartenders.
Great place in DC, especially with the mixed tasters. Smaller selection of taps than Churchkey, but always good stuff. Friendly atmosphere, and I like this one a little more than the Georgetown location. Definitely a must if in the area.

Visited on a Saturday lunchtime. Nice outside semi covered terrace area by the street. The tap menu was good with a very varied selection from local to international brews. Very impressed to find a BA Jw lees Harvest Ale on tap which Iíve never even seen back in UK. Certainly some gems in the bottle selection too. Food was great, a decent pizza with good craft beer. Winning formula! Wish there were more places like this back in Europe.

Visited July 2011.
Did a bit of a walking tour through DC and ended here. It just so happened to be during their IPA festival which made some people very happy. They were doing flights of four so I got to try a number of the Mikkeller single hop IPAs as well as a few other random beers. The downside was that since it was a themed tap lineup there wasnít much variety. The other ratings of this place make it look so good that I feel like I should come back on a regular night. The pizza was good, as it should be with a name like that. A bit pricey though. Service was attentive but didnít say much.
