Capitol City Brewing Company
What I found was a decent bar atmosphere--not exactly warm and cozy, but adequate, bustling and supplemented by a pretty good menu. They had a handful of brews on tap, spanning the colours of the brewing rainbow. I did my best to review them all, but I'm just one man. I had a sample flight of five small portions, a full pint of their Irish red and, for good measure, another sample for the road, all washed down with a plate of beef sliders.
Apart from the location I visited in downtown D.C., the Capitol City Brewing Co. has another location in Arlington, Virginia. That's where the actual brewing is done. They have a main roster of four signature beers that are available year-round: a kölsch, an amber ale, a pale ale, and a porter. Additionally, they have a variety of seasonal brews.
Stay tuned--over the next few days, I'll be posting reviews of each of the brews I tried.
