A frequent lunchtime and otherwise all hours stop for me. Really enjoy the afternoon vibe in this place, particularly on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Service is always prompt with friendly, knowledgeable bartenders. The selection is pretty good on draft, and great in bottles. Pizza is fantastic. Not too expensive for where it is. A really great place with frequent events and a constantly-changing draft list. One of the few places in the District that I highly recommend.

Stopped in for lunch on a Sunday afternoon after the zoo. Was pleased to see it wasn’t packed (it was a nice day so the patio was open and full). We were seated immediately. Draft selection was all right. Lots of bottles though. I didn’t get to have more than one beer though because our waitress came to take our order then never again until the check. The pizza was excellent, but it’s pricey and not a huge food selection overall. Not a place for a picky eater. I’d like to go back and sit at the bar and enjoy a few more beers.

Visited this small (primarily) pizza joint on a recent visit to DC. They do not tack reservations and there was an hour wait upon arrival, so plan accordingly. The room had a small waiting area (many people waiting outside on the curb), a bar along the right hand side and tables on the left. Decorated with brick and paraphenalia. One of our party had not arrived yet, but they did seat us if we were able to order for the entire table. Service was fast and courteous. The beer selection was very good with several rarities on tap - but mostly leaned toward IPAs during our visit. The pizza was thin crusted in the middle and thick around the edges - very nice. Beers were a bit on the expensive side, but overall a good place to get pizza and beer in the Dupont Circle area.

Medium sized L-shaped bar. Well lit in daytime. Chalkboard with dozen draft beers by name, abv, pour size, and price. Rock/pop Music at conversation level. 8 2-top fables on sfreetside patio with shade umbrella. Happy hour 5-7 with half-priced drafts. Great craftbeer bottle selection. Unpadded wooden barstools and dining room chairs. No free WiFi. ;

Visited with some friend for lunch on vacation. I am the only beer geek in the group so it was nice that this place has amazing food to keep my wife and friend busy while I ogled the list. The waitress was a little curt, but hell it wasn’t a big deal. She made some suggestions, but didn’t know what the cask on tap was or if they still had some. I ended up trying a stout and the Southrn Tier IPA on tap. Both were great and served in appropriate glasses. Nice change from what i am used to in Arkansas.

A nice DC watering hole, and smaller than the other two locations, but the only one with an outdoor seating area. The service was great, with Greg (beer guy) bringing in some new NC beers from his recent trip south. The pizza was great as always and the prices are par for the course in DC.

Stopped by for lunch on a Friday. Sat at the bar, which wasn’t at all crowded. Great service from the bartender and a very good pizza. The draft selection is small but spot on, with La Folie and a local saison being the highlights for me when I visited. The bottle selection is impressive but a bit outside of my price range.

Really amazing pizza of traditional and modern styles and a comfortable restaurant though way too crowded bar area. Surprisingly, the bar tender was quick and engaging despite the rows of people. The list isn’t huge but it’s very well chosen and filled with relative rarities on both draft and bottle. For a restaurant I would go endlessly. Just for beer, only on off times.

My regular watering hole. Near the Dupont Circle North metro exit. Small, cramped restaurant. Selection is very good, about 10 rotating taps and they usually have 1-2 of each style. Usually more European stuff than the Georgetown location Very nice, if not pricey, bottle list as well. Happy hours on Tuesday/Wednesday from 5-7PM with half priced drafts, which is an excellent deal. Staff is among the friendliest and I often find myself chatting with the bartender when service is slow. Pizza and Apps are good as well although I would say I go for the beer and the pizza is an afterthought.

Pretty good looking place, but *small,* or at least the only part I saw was small. The building has a partition (or did earlier in 2011) that seperated the restaurant and bar sections. I can understand keeping the people standing around in one section, but it’s so tight and hard to move around on the bar side that Happy Hour can be a chore. Very good beer selection.
