vibe: 4.5 | quality: 4 | service: 4 | selection: 5

visited on a rainy October Saturday, early evening, after a frustrating bout with directions, traffic, and parking

atmosphere: entry is through the upstairs restaurant (the Pizzeria), on the left side in the back is a set of stairs leading to the downstairs bar (the Bierria), wonderfully warm down here after a walk in the cold rain, only a few folks seated at the bar, all the 10 or so tables were open though they filled over the course of my stay, as well as a couple pleather chairs by the gas fireplace where we chose to make our spot, cozy and relaxed like some sort of bar/basement/living room

quality: the cask ale was served in a standard pint at proper temperature, my imperial stout was served way too cold but at least it was in a snifter (and full)

service: complimentary olives were almost immediately placed on the table (used to hate them, but after some determined experimentation I'm kinda fond of the green ones), we had two servers over the course of a 2 hour stay, one was quite good and friendly, the other cold and dull but still quick with the service, I'll average this out to "good" for now but expect it to grow in the future

selection: phenominal selection, by leaps and bounds the best I've seen in the Metro area, 17 taps on the day of my initial visit with a bottle list stylized and spread over 10 or so pages (about half Belgian) and a full page devoted to seasonals, check the website for currents, big props for the Bell's Amber on cask (had one, good stuff), what the hell is Three Floyds Behemoth Blonde doing here?, was interested in the Cape Ann Pumpkin Stout and Avery Kaiser but the Bell's Expedition was too fitting by the fire on this cold and wet day, enough here to satisfy anybody in any mood

food: I can hardly give the place a food score based only on this, but the Antipasto appetizer of cured meats and cheese over Italian bread was a great pre-dinner snack

Pizza here is good, but not as good as some other places in DC, see 2 Amys. That said the beer selection is always very well curated which makes up for lack of size compared to places like Churchkey. Especially good is the half price happy hour on weekdays. 5$ lambickx? Yes please. 3.50$ Mean Old Tom, why thank you! And the list goes on...
