After hearing good things about this place, once my meetings in the Dupont Circle area ended I headed over for a pint or two. Very neat and clean exterior, and it continues inside. Bright from all the windows, old rustic brick, and loads of light colored wood make this place feel comfortable. Open kitchen in the back, and there was an outdoor seating area.
The bar is small as it can seat about 10. There is a beer list on the wall and on menus. There are about 5 well stocked refridgerators behind the bar allowing you to see all the selections too. There were 12 drafts covering many styles. Anchor Bock, La Chouffe, Hitachino Red Rice Ale, Rabid Duck, Mahajara, Breckenridge 471 IPA, and Stillwater Debutante names a few. The beers were fresh that I had.
Service was prompt and knowledgable. Price were a bit pricey but not overly so for the area. Since i had lunch a bit earlier I was not hungry, but the pizzas did look very good. Overall this was a very pleasant experience.

Stopped in for a quick bite to eat and some good beer on a weekday. Sat at the bar.
Clean and upscale setting. Nothing pretentious, just nicely done. Good music. When I sat down they gave a small bowl of fancy olives. Quite tasty. Nice touch.
Bartender was attentive and knowledgeable. Not overly friendly, but that was fine.
I ordered a pizza. It came quite quickly. Very tasty.
Star of this show is the beer [as it should be]. Bottled beer menu is about 12 pages. Also had about 12 beers on tap. 1 cask ale was available, which is always impressive.
Overall, a very nice place to stop in for a bite to eat and some good beer.
