Saw this place from across the street on the way to dinner and had to stop in on the way back to our hotel. The atmosphere is very nice, clean, and classy. Brewery is on the left as you walk in, bar is on the right. High ceilings, nice marble floors, and a big door connecting to a Marriott Courtyard hotel (which apparently uses GB as their room service kitchen).
Six or seven house brews available on draft, all German-style lagers. I tried the marzen, hefeweizen, and schwarzbier, all of which were good. Even though the place was far from busy, the bartender wasn't very attentive. I never had an empty beer glass in front of me, but my water glass sat empty for quite a while. Didn't try the food, but the garlic fries looked good. Everything else appeared to be the same as all other links in the GB chain.
Pints run at $4.75, almost cheap for DC. A nice place to hang out on a quiet Sunday evening.

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.
