A cozy and friendly establishment. Located on the back side of a business park/strip mall lookinng area. Cannot see the place from Blandensburg Rd. Has a small office area that serves as both tasting room, retail area and business office. Did not get chance to take a tour. Disappointed that they had no stickers the day of my visit. I look forward to makinig another visit to take a tour. I like the fact that they post updates on Facebook. A heads up allowed me to make a run on a Wednesday around lunch to pick up fresh canned OTWOA. (536 characters)

I was really looking forward to the drive down to DC brau to check out their taproom and grab some OTWOA... Really glad I grabbed the OTWOA, but the taproom is nothing to write home about. Great beer, great people working there, taproom could use some work. Want to head back down to tour the brewery. (301 characters)

As far as breweries go, this certainly wasn't the coolest but we got there right after open on a Sunday. Service was fine and the beer tasted super fresh. That's what I'm looking for when I hit a brewery. I'd go back for sure. (229 characters)

I really enjoyed my visit to this brewery. It's located in a shopping center and the entrance is in the back, so it is easy to miss. It feels like you are entering a small private club. Just inside the door is the tasting room that was air-conditioned (thank you) and well decorated. They have t-shirts hanging on the wall, stickers, artwork, awards and plenty of seating. You immediately feel the vibe, which is laid back and relaxed. It sort of feels like a private club. The bartender was super nice and had a smile, which made you feel welcomed. I enjoyed a 3 beer sampler, but they had plenty more on tap. I really enjoyed the scotch ale and the citrocity was good too. Definitely worth a visit. (700 characters)

Visited DC Brau from Florida. Great down to earth warehouse brewery/taproom with a fantastic crew. Reminds me a lot like Due South down here.

Crab, Mike, and crew gave us a great tour of the place and we drank every beer they had. Great flagship lineup.

This brewery is a "must visit" place when in the DC area. (315 characters)

DC Brau was tucked away directly behind the post office. They seemed to have all of their beers available on tap, except for Smells Like Freedom, which was available in cans. The taproom was pretty small, but the friendly employees made up for it. We quickly had a pint of On The Wings Of Armageddon, which was delicious. There was a good truck in the parking lot, and people were taking brewery tours.

Most of their beers were available in cans for take out. Almost everyone there was taking home either OTWOA or Smells Like Freedom.

I wouldn't drive too far to visit, but if you are in the area, it's definitely worth the stop. (633 characters)
