Any Bardo from over the centuries does not fit into a category. I rate it here (resulting in a low score) but the categories or the standards do not apply to a Stewart-run drinking establishment.

An outside beer garden. Low-tech with good beer. Dog friendly. No pretense and no bells and whistles.

You must go to understand it. Some will love it others will hate it.

This brewpub is outdoors, underneath the Potomac Street Bridge which crosses over the Anacostia River. They have numerous, maybe ten, beers on tap. The outdoor area has many long, unfinished wood planks for tables. The atmosphere is friendly with people partaking in corn-hole and conversations. The brewery itself is painted shipping containers and large stainless silo tanks. Fumes from a helicopter originating from the city police helicopter landing zone unfortunately wafted over the river. The service was friendly and fairly knowledgeable. They replaced a beer that I considered undrinkable free of charge after allowing me to sample two others.
