My wife and I have been to Virtue Feed & Grain a few times for a beer, and went last night for Valentine’s Dinner. The atmosphere is quite nice. They take the theme to the next level with plenty of rustic decorations and items made from old grain sacks. Overall, it’s fairly dark and laid back in the place.

The service is a bit hit or miss. Everyone is always friendly, though the beer training isn’t the best. From the way the bartenders ask about what I’m planning on having, my guess is that a lot of the patrons don’t know very much about beer. That’s fine and all, but the bartenders should know a bit more about the product when it’s clear the customer is familiar with the selections.

The selection itself is decent. There are 20 taps and about 75 bottles and cans. Maybe 5 or so of the taps are dedicated to BMC-type products. A few of the others are dedicated to locals like Port City and DC Brau. Other than that, the rest were mostly-typical micros like Stone and Victory.

The food was decent, though not great. The calimari was a bit grainy, but was otherwise cooked well. I had a "Shaggers Pie," which was a Shepherd’s pie with lamb instead. The potatoes on top were quite nice, though the dish as a whole had too much rosemary. The prices for beer were fairly expensive, including $7 pints of local pale ale. The food wasn’t too bad.

Overall, it’s worth stopping in, as I really enjoyed the atmosphere. You can grab a quick beer as well, but I wouldn’t expect this to be a go-to place.

Housed in a late 1800s grain facility, this venue is friendly, has a decent beer selection and is architecturally beautiful..recommended to visit, even if just for the staff.. Excellent !!!

I was here for a special event as part of a conference, but the food was great and the service was good. They had several local brews on tap, which for a visitor from outside the DC area was great.
