    Good service. Good beer. Anything else needed? They have a great selection of craft beer. If you like local, you should stop here for sure.

    Neighborhood Restaurant Group's brewery, along with The Arsenal, came on the scene with a whopping 20 new, ambitious beers and food to match, like fancy tater tots and beef heart tartare.

    Great beer selection and well paired dishes. The Mexican radio is my favorite along with the fried chick peas. Service can be a little slow but the food is consistently superb..can be a little pricey

    Massive brewery-restaurant from the team behind ChurchKey in the Navy Yards. Try the mac & cheese made using spent grains from the brewing process and topped with homemade Cheeze-Its.

    The Bifteki Burger is out of this world! A well-seasoned lamb & beef patty cooked to perfection and topped with pickled cucumbers, feta cheese, lolla rosa, and dill mayo with a side of fries.

    The beers are great!!! Excellent selection of IPA's and sours. We were there for the brunch menu and it offered some fine selections. Our server Natalie was exceptional and very helpful.

    VERY popular, before a Nats game, or after, or during, or even when the Nats aren't playing. Great atmosphere and their beer list has something for everyone.

    Everything at Bluejacket is incredible, but the Big Train Burger really cemented my love for the brewery. SUB FOR TATER TOTS. Their tots are a game changer

    A must-stop location before or after a Nats game, but it does get very crowded! Wide variety of beer styles and amazing food! I recommend the everything pretzel. Also a great place for brunch.

    Go for the tasting portions of beer - they're all great. Delicious veggie burger. You can "upgrade" your side of fries to smothered fries for $3.50. Do it!

    Come for the beer, stay for the beer, come back for the beer, tasting size makes trying them easy. Bar menu features some tasty snacks, especially the tots. Restaurant side/menu isn't as distinctive.

    Couldn't enjoy the beer here while I was in Washington, as I am pregnant but my boyfriend enjoyed them, and the food was quite good! Would go again if I am in the area in the future!

    There are a lot of interesting and unique variants on familiar styles, but to date they make one truly great beer: Mexican Radio.

    Built in an old hanger or warehouse this place is like most every other brewery I've experienced. Wide spaces to congregate and enough beer variety to quench the thirst of any beer connoisseur.

    Nitro tap Mexican Radio stout is delicious. Short walk from Nationals Park. Great spot for post game celebration (Nats win) / commiseration (Nats lose).

    A little pricier than I wish it was but it's brand new and located in up and coming real estate. Beers solid. Food is delicious. Porter was too smokey for me but loved the IPA

    Really unique beers! Food was pretty good (smothered tots, butternut squash, and the bacon apple pie), but not anything amazing. Love the vibe of this place.

    You'll find beers that are different than your other breweries and it has a nice outdoor patio. On weekends at select times the regular menu was not offered and it's pricey for what you got.

    Sampled like 7 beers all were good to great. Shrimp burger was awesome and weird. The interior is expertly designed and executed, service was knowledgable and nice but slow.

    Forget the burger (way too dry) and maybe try the cassoulet, which comes with a generous and delicious portion of lamb neck. Figure 8 beer was great

    Eat from the outside wood grill. It gives the meat a more authentic flavor. On Friday there's live jazz at 6:30. Kid & pet friendly.

    Love the James and the Giant and the Figure 8, but skip the cask on the latter-- the coffee and vanilla are overpowering.
