Went here for an after work gathering unsure what to expect. This place was very clean, almost new in apperance. the layout was nice and the open concept is always good. the front was all windows, allowed a lot of light in.

We ate off the gazers portion of the menu that was 1/2 off until 5 pm. The wings and nachos where pretty good.

The beer selection was decent. not only do they carry their house beers, but also have a good selection of your standard bar rail beers.

Service was with a smile, we had a waitress change during our time there, no one told us.

Overall, the beer and bar where nice, would go again!

While on a bus tour my wife and I were let loose for lunch on our own, and this was the closest craft brewery so we came here. The place is in a storefront setting near Byward Market and among other retail businesses and restaurants. The interior has nice vibe as if it were a large neighborhood bar and restaurant. A patio is located at the front, and another outdoor space is at the rear. It was a slow day, maybe because the tourist season is over, and the place was not busy at all. We chose to sit indoors. Service was very good.

There were 7 house beers on tap (plus 9 guest beers and two ciders) so we chose a sampler flight of all seven. Each of them was brewed in excess of its respective style, and we gave an overall grade of a B-minus/C+ to them. The one that we liked best was the Kolsch, and close behind were Wishart's Bitter and the Clocktower Red. We noted that the beers were generally low in abv, ranging from 4.4% to 5.3%. Flavor usually suffers when lower amounts of malts are used, but these beers were respectable in that regard.

The food menu had some nice choices for a brewpub, and we enjoyed our selections very much. The food actually outscored the beers. There is a full bar, and presumably wine is also available. This place has decent beers and good food and is worthy of a visit.
