I really enjoyed the Dogfish Head Ale House in Fairfax, VA. After walking 2.7 miles to get there I was expecting some pretty good stuff and I was not disappointed. Awesome beer selection from the Dogfish Head collection of brews, great service, good food, and a nice atmosphere made the experience all worth the long walk from the hotel. I really enjoyed the hushpuppies but that is just me. The local folks were very nice and had a good knowledge of the Dogfish Head beer selections if I had any questions. Thanks again and I will be back!

Great location, on par with DFH in Rehoboth. Atmosphere is above the original position, maybe because the location is newer. DFH Rehoboth does have the edge on Vibe, since its located two blocks from the beach and your dog is always welcome on the deck. Food rocks, and is worthy of the high quality beer selections. You can always find the DF standard releases on tap, but their limited and seasonal releases are the best part. Too bad you can't get growler fills for the limited releases.

real fun place. food was decent beer selection was great, got to try a couple beers that are unavailable in my neck of the woods. only downside was the cost of to go beers. asking $20ish for beers like import, wws, and 120 i was expecting house beers to be a little more affordable but still a great place.
