vibe: 3.75 | quality: 3.75 | service: 4 | selection: 3.5 | food: 4.5

I really like the food at this place. Great wood fired pizza with a unique twist here and there.

V - Not a beer vibe, but more busy bistro. Well lit. Tables are a bit crowded. Family atmosphere. 3.75

Q - This place serves as much wine as beer. Not sure how attentive they are to their lines, etc. and how often the kegs turnover. 3.75

S - Generally good, friendly, helpful service, but when they are busy it can be almost impossible to find your server. The wait staff is hit or miss with respect to their beer knowledge and even the beers on tap. 4

S - Limited, but decent. 3.5

F - Great pizza. The food makes up for the other deficiencies. 4.5

Not sure how this place got listed on beer advocate, but the key is it is the best pizza joint in the DC area, and thats coupled with a pretty legit beer list.

Atmosphere is that of a fast paced restaurant, focus is on the extended bar which rolls into the kitchen where the centerpiece volcanic pizza oven is. The menu and the beer list is small, but its all great great stuff. I had some Left Hand Milk Stout and 400 Monkeys, hard to find on the east coast. This place wins on the unbelievable quality of its pizza, the best of DC in my opinion, and a lot of folks will agree. I appreciate their beer efforts, but without the big selection, this is more of an average beer bar, with incredible food.
