Atmosphere is pretty good, w/ a big open area for seating. It can get pretty crazy on the weekends, as this seems to be a 'pre-going out' hang for a lot of younger adults. The quality of brews ranges from passable to pretty good. Nothing world class here, but nothing horrible either. The service has been hit or miss with me. Sometimes it's been great, other times horrible- depends on who you get I guess. The selection of beers is usually pretty good- 5-8 beers on tap at any given time, with some standards always on draft. Food is usually pretty good, and standard bar food. Nothing outstanding. Cap City used to be a good place for me, but as my tastes evolved, this is a fairly mediocre beer place now. Still, if you're looking for a place to hang, and you're in the neighborhood... It's probably worth a trip.

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.
