Regardless of the city, this is a top-notch beer bar and worth a stop for any BA visiting the area. Made the trip there to have some good beers and watch the NFL playoff game before heading to a concert at the 9:30 club.

There are two levels in the place, so if you visit and you prefer more of the pub scene, definitely make sure to head downstairs. The upstairs has a gorgeous, wide, wooden bar – but the majority of the floor is set-up like a restaurant, while the downstairs is seemingly the livelier pub area. Downstairs there is another large bar, with booths set-up with their own taps (charge per oz) which seems to be more of a novelty thing…

It should be emphasized that the manager and the bar-tenders are all extremely knowledge about beer (read: cicerones) and are happy to talk all things beer. I was able to take a peek at their cellar and the kegs they have aging are just as fantastic as the cases of beer they have. I had a few local DC Brau beers, a Founders Porter (I don’t get Founders in MD, sadly), and then an Anchor Old Foghorn the manager had been aging for 3 years and highly recommended. Delicious. Prices are comparable with other DC bars, but they also offer sample-size pours for all drafts which is helpful.

The food is upscale pub-grub. I split some tasty fries as well as a Pork BBQ nachos. Fresh guac and juicy pork (they take bbq seriously). Good stuff.

Last thing worth mentioning is this an American Craft Beer bar - that's their focus and they do it well. That being said, for certain events they gladly serve Imported beer … so it’s not like they never have it.

Fantastic spot and 100% worth a trip.

Good Beer Sometimes a Bit Pretentious.

I have been to this place a couple times now so it is time for a review. I will start with the atmosphere which is actually very good. Not too big that you get lost and has a nice downstairs. The service has been good all the times I have been there. Friendly and responsive.
The food is good. Good build your own sandwich/burger ability.
Beer selection is very good. I would prefer more regular bottles to choose from as opposed to bombers.
Overall, a very good place in DC for beer.
