This place is the first brewpub in Washington DC since prohibition, and the beers they offered were delicious - a great variety of home brewed beers. The only thing I couldn’t see was a sort of tasting menu that I’ve seen done in many bars...More

This has the potential to be a decent bar and burger place but it was grubby and service was slow. A shame as the burger was ok and beer selection decent. But if they don’t clean counters after the previous guest and it takes three...More

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.
