4.4/5  rDev +2.8%
vibe: 4 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4.5 | selection: 4.5 | food: 4 | $$$

Stopped by for the first time the other night.

Located on the corner of Park and 11th Street, the MP is a fairly sizeable pub, with a comfortable vibe... lots of wood and not too bright, exactly what I was in the mood for after a long week of work related training. As one comes in the door from Park Street, the pub dining area extends fairly far back, with a moderate size bar area on the left, holding 15 or 20 seats (I would guess). The beer selection here is quite good, consisting of roughly 25 beers on draft (including a cask of the recently released Oliver's harvest ale with citra hops), and then another 100 beers on the bottle list. Quality is also pretty high... the draft list included things like Bear Republic NorCal ale, cafe racer 15, FW union jack and SN beer camp oatmeal stout, while the bottle list included a wide range of Bruery and Stillwater beers (including the Stillwater Pappy Van Winkle project for $32 as I recall), as well as FW sucabas and the XV. The bottle list is really pretty solid here, with a number of bottle selections I have not seen too many other places.

Service was also quite excellent. My bartender (the manager I believe ) was very knowledgeable about the beers on offer (and generally about the local beer scene), and service was fast and efficient. I also ordered a couple of items off the food menu (as I was here for dinner), and was quite pleased and satisfied with the cerviche appetizer and arugula duck confit salad I got. The cerviche was actually prepared in a style that wasn't my favorite, but it was hard to complain, given the amount of fresh seafood in the dish. Seems like this place takes its food nearly as seriously as they do their beer. I would also add that this place has a very good whiskey/bourbon selection as well, and so I concluded my evening with a shot of pappy van winkle 13.

This being DC, prices were high of course, but were less than what I've paid at some other places in the area (like the smoke and barrel for instance). The MP offers happy hour prices from 5-7 pm during the week, so my pint of Union Jack cost just $6 insteaad of the usual $7. Prices seemed to top out around $9 a glass for some of the more limited and rare items on the menu.

This is a very solid place and one I will try to revisit during the rest of my 4 week stay in town (they're having a Ballast Point market entry event on Monday, and so will have sculpin on tap for the first time). Definitely glad I stopped by....
