I've been to Pizzeria Paradiso a number of times and always find something interesting on tap. In July 2014 the restaurant had July PA Festival with nearly all IPAs on tap out of 13 taps. Waitstaff are knowledgeable but seem a bit rushed during busier times. Nothing much to speak of for atmosphere and it can be quite load during evenings. Free small plate of olives for munching is different.

I live in Alexandria and this is my go-to bar. What I like about Pizza Paradiso is their ever revolving tap selection. Other beer bars have standard year-round selections and rotate some of their taps. Paradiso rotates all of their taps so that each time I go, there is a completely different tap menu. They sometimes do themes depending on season or have tap takeovers.

Also very kid friendly if you want table service, and there is an expanded bar area where they have good happy hour specials.

I personally prefer this to other the Alexandria beer bar, Rustico, mainly because the food is better and also it is easier to get a seat and more conveniently located in the heart of Old Town (so I can walk/stumble home).

This Old Town location is a nice lower-key, lower-volume alternative to the Dupont Circle experience. The attention to a quality beer experience is consistent across this local chain, with variety and solid presentation here in Alexandria. Servers are not enthusiastic, but still useful and knowledgable. The food, being of a single type, limits pairing experiences, but it is tasty. And considering the location and surrounding culture, it's not a bad overall value. I'd certainly return.
