This brewery has been around for many years. In fact they paved the way for other breweries in the D.C. Metro area. Their beer is pretty good and they have an extensive menu. Service was excellent.

I only rated this establishment 3 stars because of the way I was first greeted upon entering. I was solo and the three hostesses were very unwelcoming and barely acknowledged me when I asked for a table. I've been there before and know the food...More

The happy hour here is great with $5 appetizers and cheap beer. Fun time if there are any games at the Verizon center because the place is crowded with fans

This is a great place to stop and grab a bite and few brews. The menu is eclectic, but sure to please everyone. Weather sitting at the bar or at a table, the service is great. Love the soft pretzels that are provided.

Capitol City Brewing Co. opened its doors in 1992 as the first brew pub in our nation's capitol since prohibition, thus giving its citizens and its many visitors the freedom to enjoy some of the finest hand-crafted beer in the country. On the front of our menu is the symbol of freedom, the Lady Liberty, a statue found atop our namesake, the United States Capitol.

Nestled in the heart of Washington's rejuvenated downtown, this location has become a local landmark for celebrating great beer and food with family and friends. We have always taken great pride in our beer so come in and enjoy a cold pint of our very best and match it to one of the many menu selections tailored to the brews we serve.
