We ate lunch here while touring DC. We took the Big Bus around the city and got off at stop 19, walked up three blocks to the restaurant. Easy peasy. We were waiting when they opened at 11:30 am so of course the place wasn't crowded. Very nice decor, upscale rustic with a big city vibe. Good music playing not to loudly and the coolness felt great because it was a hot day out.Quality was excellent on all counts. We sat in the bar and the service was friendly and helpful. Food took a while but we did open the place. Beer selection was excellent, hubby had Samquanch and Brooklyn Blast and son had Kolsch, Mother Earth and the cask which was a stout from Fordham Brewery in DE. The food was fantastic, I had the ribeye beef dip on rye which sounded a bit odd but was delicious. Others had a burger reported to be delicious and the Korean tacos on the snack menu reported also to be delicious. Prices were a little high but it is the big city so expected. We would go back if ever in the area again.

Another great beer topia in Washington DC
Was only in for the brews, and they did not disappoint. Needed to charge the cell phone, and the very nice bartender, charged my phone behind the bar. One of the cooler things is the sampling sizes. You can get a full pint, but you can also just get a 4 ounce size or so to try. Still costs, but at least you don't end up trying something, not liking it, and having to finish it anyways.
I did not try the food, although the next time I am in DC I will be visiting for a meal and a few pints. It appears they do source foods, as well as brews, locally and responsibly.
If you are in DC, check this place out. They are in the discussion with best beer places around!
