I haven't reviewed this place? What did I do to forget doing this? Where are my marbles?

Basically after all this time and the breweries that have since come after DC Brau got established one thing still remains after sampling many beers.

These guys are hands down my favorite brewery in DC proper.

The atmosphere inside is rather simple, but it has a good inviting feel. A giant big red booth couch you could find in an old dinner, and some other seating. The bar and tap area is filled with stickers and the growler menu quickly written and the occasional humorous drawing.

Service here is real solid. In all my times I've been here, employees are cordial, welcoming, and they are always smiling. I mean it looks like they are just happy to work here.

Finally though it wouldn't be great if it weren't for the beers. Jeff Hancock is an extremely skilled brewer and it shows in his line up. Great to absolutely fantastic beers: The Corruption, The Public, Wings of Armageddon, Yonder Cities are just some of the real big highlights that I am very impressed are made here.

A very fun place to visit and drink some of the best beers that DC is making.

DC Brau was an awesome hang out environment, they were grilling brauts, tons of people hanging out having a good time, your get 4 free beer tickets. Good music playing, and they were not Nazi's with the beer tickets, very laid back feel. I came to try new solar abyss but they were out, then I wanted on the wings and they did not have it on tap, then I wanted corruption and they were out, my biggest down side s that they were out of everything I wanted to try. I bought a case of on the wings, gave myself a little tour walking around and all in all had a good time. It was a hard spot to find as it was in the back of down trodden shopping center... just follow the beer thirsty zombies heading to quench their palates. All in all a good experience but not up there is the top notch breweries.

Hard to find brewery (don't look for the sign because its in a strip mall and tucked around back). 4 beers on tap but besides the 4 free 4 ounce samples you get, you can't drink the growlers or cans on the premises. Staff was friendly and they even gave out free Synder's pretzels!
