This brewpub is located on a neat little street with a few other restaurants and shops.

This brewpub had more of a prepy feel then most of the brewpubs I have been to. I ordered the sampler. The waiter told me what the beers were but did not tell me any thing about the beers or the styles. The beers were pretty good. The best beers in my opinion were the Pumpkinator, Capital Kolsch, Prohibition Porter. The Porter was the last beer I teried and the head had not diminished.

If in the area worth the stop to try the beer, I dont think you will be disapointed or Amazed.

Capitol City is located in a very nice area with plenty of food options around (I did not try their food). The place is a fairly good sized brewpub with a lot of selection on tap.

Good but noisy indoors with beer making equipment well displayed at this brewpub. Also outdoors tables in lovely Shirlington. I have experienced great service especially at bicycle group happy hour events. Food is less memorable but decent. Beer is solid - I ave tried Fuel stout and Amber Waves ale.

To me the beers tend to taste the same... Many have what I call the microbrew aftertaste which has gotten old...

Good atmosphere and the food is above average with a good selection.

Never had bad service - most of the staff know about the beers so it is not a guessing game.
