Located neatly by New York Ave, and the NoMa-Galludet metro stop on the red line a couple blocks.

Store is well organized and contains of course primarily Bruery beers and their Off Shoot brand. It is nicely laid out and actually quite well organized and colorful. The selection is however of course almost all Bruery/Terreux/Off Shoot related, but there are occasionally other breweries who show up such as Commonwealth, The Veil, Rare Barrel and a few others.

Staff are extremely helpful and nice. They are also very knowledgeable of the product and it's diversity. The store is even in better shape now that the cut a skylight in the ceiling, which brings more light and even better, cell phone reception!

I've been a reserve society member in the past, and that is a nice discount when you purchase other things in the store on occasion. They also have crowler fills, and those are also a nice added selection as they have often been some of their more obscure beers available.

If you are into the Bruery you will not be disappointed here, and they still make world class brews.

Headed up to DC to pick up Hoarders allocations. Place is located in a bit of a gnarly part of DC. Small store. Pretty decent bottle selection. Nice for locals to be able to get their Bruery fix.

Crowler station with some fairly rare stuff that is brewery only like the Bruesicles. Nice to be able to get these in crowler form.

Service was great. Had 6 cases of beer to pick up and they had it all ready to go. No problems with that at all. Nice guys working the place.

Glad to be able to drive and pick up my stuff instead of having to ship across the country. Well done.

Stopped by on the way to a nearby attraction, just went in as it opened, the place filled up pretty quick, a few beers on tap and a great selection of some of their better beers, including some from other breweries.

Yikes, this place is located in a beat up and run down part of town. We never would have found the place if it wasnt for the random chalk board side walk sign they had placed on the corner.

While everything outside looks bad, the inside of this place is immaculate. Very nice bottle selection with some cans and crowlers also available. My buddies who were with me were disappointed in the lack of merchandise. They wanted to buy shirts, sweatshirts and hats but left empty handed as the selection was very minimal.

Tons of beer to pick from but even with my member discount, its pricey. A couple of vintage anniversary old ales were on the shelf with a +$6 premium.

I ordered a crowler and to my surprise, they did not fill it fresh, it was prefilled in the back. After they rung me up, I didnt want it would have been nice to advertise the price instead of the surprise $35 or whatever it was.

Visited on a Friday afternoon, just after lunch. The store has been open a month. Parking can be a bit difficult. Located in a section of the city that's on an uptick.

V - Its a store, albeit a store devoted solely to Bruery beers, so align your expectations appropriately. Its a brand new refurbished store, so don't let the area or surround stores dissuade you. Lots of non-beer items as well. 3.75

Q - They received monthly shipments and store all beer under proper conditions. 4.75

Ser - Excellent service. Some of the employees are brand new to The Bruery, so if the first can't answer your question find one of the veterans. 4.5

Sel - Not a full selection, but a good choice. Storage is limited, so what they do have might run out fast. 4.25
