Wonderful place in Dupont Circle. Very nice selection both on tap and in bottles. Got a Cantillon Saint Lamvinus for a decidedly reasonable price ($40) and Stillwaterís Barrel Aged Stateside. Not the best pours by the waitress on either count, but I try not to be picky about that. Pizza is very very tasty. Definitely a must visit in the area.
Went here about three times, although the first time I was there, I didnít have an ID on me, so I didnít get beer. It is inside of an old Victorian mansion and the interiors are all redone and look a little rustic. Only downside to the interior is that it is usually packed and that the brick walls echo the sound, thus making the bar one of the louder places out there. Service is always excellent, with really attentive staff. Only one problem is that they will not seat you unless you have your WHOLE party with you. Selection on tap is always good with 12 taps of craft and import beer. Sometimes the beers seem to be chosen more because they are obscure than because they are legitimately good, but that is ok. Also, beers can be quite expensive here, but fortunately the happy hours cut those prices in half and make going there more palatable. Food is excellent. I have never had anything there that I didnít like. Good salad, dank free olives, crafty pizza, balliní bruschetta.An excellent place and well worth a visit. You can also very easily take non-beer-drinking people there and theyíll have no idea that you are in it for the beer.
great great place...like the G town location They have awesome drafts that constantly rotate and a killer bottle selection which takes advantage of DCís kickass import laws. In a year you will get stuff from just about every top tier brewery here, regardless of geography. This place is a little better cause itís easier to get there, plus they have the best bartender in the city. I always get great service there.
This place can get pretty loud on a Saturday night what with the exposed brick and the low ceilings. Fortunately I was able to elbow my way to a couple of stools at the bar. Besides the noise, the crowd tends to be in the 20ís. The people next to me were having a philsopohical discussion so inane it would embarass a 5 year old. Clearly this is a place that worships and loves beer. They had over a dozen taps, including a cask, and they were all solid. The pizza was fantastic and the bartender was very knowledgeable about beer although you get the sense that they get a lot of posers who like the scene but know nothing about beer. He kept warning me about the attributes of each beer. "Hey that Saison is kind of tart." "Fantastic! Canít wait to taste it." I did enjoy my experience there but Iím getting old so I think the next time I return it will be durning the day when itís less crowded and people are quieter.
Great selection of beers that I havenít seen any where else. The pizza was amazing. We sat at the bar. The bartender was awesome, He even knew how to pour a hefe properly, which is always cool to see. My only complaint are about the prices, but then again they are par for DC. The wait for a table was 30 minutes (its a small location) so be prepared to grab a pint and wait for a table. They have a happy hour Tues/Weds where drafts are 1/2 price.
This was my first meal in DC and I was very impressed. It was also my first introduction to DCís insane beer prices. A 750 here runs $30 and up quickly, so we stuck with the draft list. That said, our waiter was awesome, helpful, and responsive. The drafts were properly served and delicious. Not mentioned on the menu, it is possible to get half pours of their beers. On top of the good beer service, the food was incredible. We had an amazing salad and a really solid four cheese pizza, with crust how I like it. This will be a perennial stop in DC from now on.
Probably my favorite beer bar in DC. My value number is so high because of their insane Tuesday/Wednesday half off all taps happy hour. You wonít find that anywhere else in the city. Great beers, rare beers, great staff, great location. Love love love this place.
food was solid. good service. decent tap selection and an awesome bottle list. pizzeria atmosphere, but has a bar. pretty happy with the lunch i had here. went here around 2pm and it was empty, so not sure what the scene is like at other times. cantillon fixtures on the walls. can tell owners care about beer and italian food.
