Visited on a Tuesday evening starting about 8pm. The place was not busy the night we visited.

A - Open, clean, new, not too bright. A nice bar area, booths and tables. The booth we sat in seemed a bit tight - if there had been four of us instead of two, especiallly four men, the booth would have been too small and tight.

A - Beer served in the appropriate glass. No concerns over the quality of the beer.

S - Polite and knowledgeable waitstaff. Always close and available but not intrusive. Georgia and Wayne could have been a bit more energetic.

S - I have the Green Flash Red Rye, the Victory Hop Wallop and the Cuvée Van De Keizer Blauw (Blue). My friend drank bud light. A wide selection of craft beer on tap and in the bottle. Bombers and other large format bottles available.

F - We had chicken wings and a pizza with pepperoni and lamb sausage. I thought it was a fine pizza, but did not come away overly impressed either. Wings were average to above average. Willing to visit again and further explore the menu.

This is my one of my favorite Arlington bars. I don't go to bars that often but my wife and I come here pretty regularly. It can get pretty busy in the evening and at lunchtime but it is never deafening. They have a large and always changing selection which includes 2 casks and many bottles. Recent highlights for me have been Firestone Walker XVII, BCBS, Stone Enjoy By, and St Bernardus Christmas. They easy compete for best selection in Arlington and are bested by only a couple in DC.

The food is good but I come here more for the beer than the food. They have many different pizzas along with some sandwiches and pastas. The bartenders are great and knowledgeable but the waitstaff in the restaurant area can be hit or miss.

What I really appreciate is the effort the management has put into making this a beer destination. The brewery flags and general decor let you know what is most important here. Once a month they have multi course beer dinners with a selected brewery. They are also very good about announcing new beers and events though Facebook.

Pricing is reasonable when you get over the fact that DC is just expensive.
