I visited this place during a trip to DC with my family for a vacation. On a particularly hot day, after visiting the Spy Museum, we stopped in here for a brew and sodas for the kids. The location, in a hotel, is convenient, and there was a small happy hour crowd watching the World Cup. The ceilings are high, and large windows give it an open feeling. Brew tanks are located in the back, far from the bar. The service was great: prompt, knowledgeable, and attentive. I had a marzen, which was well-made and tasty. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

I stumbled on this location when I was staying at a hotel next door in DC. We got in fast, the service was very good. The food was fine and the beer selection was good. I tried the Blonde Bock and the Marzen - preferred the latter. Overall a good experience and I'd go back while in DC.

Been here a few times now. It's a pretty large restaurant with a bar area to the right when you walk in.
Atmosphere is pretty good; they get a lot of Capitals and Wizards fans before and after games as it is only a block from the Verizon Center, and there is no dress code, so it is pretty laid back and casual.
Service has always been good and their food is probably the best thing about the place. They offer entrees ranging in price from $12-40, and have things ranging from burgers and sandwiches to Mexican food, seafood, and steaks.
Most importantly, onto the beer. They normally have 6 beers on tap, all brewed on location. Every time I go it seems that they have a pilsener, a marzen, a schwarzbier, a hefeweizen, and 2 others. While none of their beers are outstanding, they are all pretty solid, and I found the marzen and schwarzbier both pretty good.
Overall I would say it is a good restaurant with above average food. The beer is solid and the spices and location are great; I'd definitely go back.

A- It's in a pretty cool building near a lot of the action, so it's a pretty good place to grab a beer and watch people. They also have a couple televisions. Relatively large with lots of natural light at the bar.
Q- Beer was served cold, but not too cold, and was generally good.
Ser- The service is decent, but has never struck me as above average. A little bit slow, but not egregiously so.
Sel- It's pretty cool to see Americans brew traditional German styles. That being said, they only have about 5 or 6 taps. Good beer, but not much to choose from.
It's a bit spendy all things considered, but given it's D.C., it was only a little offputting.
