These guys are growing, and you gotta appreciate their approach, they produce excellent saisons and are striving to be a major player in a fledgling DC beer scene. The tasting room bartender was very knowledgeable and friendly and they don't charge admission and offer free tastings of whatever they are currently brewing. Their brewing approach coupled with their artistic endeavors provide a unique and home grown approach to industry that is now become investor driven. I wish them well and recommend a visit

One time I got there early to get the ebony & ivory that they announced on twitter. After getting there, they decided not to tap it. I was so disappointed. The xmas party/beer bash was great. I'm not giving up on them & hope this 250 person club is worth it. To be determined...

The area is on the knife edge between ghetto and gentrification.

The food rating is based on the truck they use for the tastings. The guy is really trying, but the brisket and pork is okay, and the peanut soup is spicy without flavor. The guy is so nice I feel a little bad writing this.

The bartender for the tasting is not nice. The tasting is free, and the beers are good. Four on tap, but they have a wide and changing range of beers.

The tour is nice because the guys are great. They have a nice explanation of how they got started and brewing, capping with a canned 1 minute fifty speech on following your work dreams.

The place is filthy, and the equipment is used and beat up. The tasting area and bathroom is clean as heck.

The brewing supplies are overpriced.

Free tasting and tours.

Growler fills can be purchased, and are overpriced.

Small brewery in DC area run by charismatic and enthusiastic brewers. They offered free samples of their current beers which were very tasty (especially the Casked IPA and the Imperial Brown) but the growlers were a bit pricey. The tour was well done and detailed their history and growth, but they also answered questions about technique whenever asked. They had a great message about "following your passions." Their beers and the food truck next door made for a great lunch - we'll keep our eyes on this brewery and will be back for another visit!

great people and vibe. very welcoming. industrial area, as expected given their location and it is DC. not a huge selection but I thought quite acceptable. And they don't charge. so I can't complain. Food truck outside - bonus. Thought the growlers were a bit pricey, but they were high abv brews, expected? will visit again.
