Located in due north of the Metro Center metro stop, several blocks north of the National Mall. There is also a large public parking lot near the area. I've been to the location in Baltimore in the Inner Harbor (now closed), and this one was very similar to that location.

There is a good selection of beers - four regulars then five or six on a rotating release schedule. The Prohibition Porter is great, and the last time I tried fuel it was a good choice for anyone who loves stouts. The staff was friendly and had good knowledge of the beer (such as which beer compares well to Coors Light). The bartender named Mike even topped off my pint glass when I dorked it up and almost knocked the beer over.

There is a nice selection of food, a little better than the usual bar food selection, though a bit pricey (typical these days). In the middle of the place is an oval bar with plenty of seats, surrounded by tables and boothes in the rest of the place.

I've had my eye on this place for quite a while and I'm glad I stopped in. Good food, good beer, good atmosphere, and a good place overall.

Visited last week while visiting for the holidays. I was pumped to see a brewpub so close to my hotel

My visit was pretty late on a weeknight, so the bar was only about half-full. The atmosphere is pretty generic and open - nothing offensive, but bland. Lots of space occupied by booths and tables surrounding a large oval-shaped bar. TVs at the bar, tuned to hockey

Service was extremely prompt, and they worked together which I always appreciate. They had 4 standard beers and a seasonal - I ordered a sampler, which included the standards. My first beer was the kölsch, which was awful. The pale was decent but the other two were forgettable. With the beer being so meh, I decided to skip the seasonal. Nothing on the menu was very adventurous, all pretty approachable styles.

Prices were ok, though in the end I don't think I really feel he need to come back. Just an underwhelming "brewpub" overall.
