“Brilliant Birch & Barley”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014 via mobile

We had the tasting menus with match beer. Could not fault it. Delicious. Sumptuous. Clever. The matching beers were an eye opener too. We particularly liked that they used all locally sourced produce, some unfamiliar to our palate like ramps. We were very happy to go on the culinary journey.

“Great beer selection, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Enjoyed it all - the waitstaff can really help you navigate the beer list. Can be a little dark inside but that is a vibe I enjoy.

“Pretzels’, Biscuits, Kalamata Olive Rolls and Beer!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

To be honest, we were a little scared because the location of the restaurant is in a transitional neighborhood in D.C. It’s worth the trip! The menu changes frequently but the service was outstanding. Seating is limited so make a reservation. The bread plate was the best and we really enjoyed the pretzels’, old fashioned biscuits and kalamata olive rolls. The restaurant also features more beer choices than you can imagine. If you don’t know what to pick – just describe what you like to drink and they will guide you.

“I don't even like beer...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

But you have to be impressed by the beer selection. You can try 4oz tastes or regular glasses. If like me you don't drink beer but do like wine, you will be happy with the wine selection. The servings are a generous size. The flatbreads are good, and the charcuterie board has some unusual cuts of meat as they do their own butchering. The restaurant is nicely decorated. The lighting is low which creates a nice atmosphere. Will go back.

“Interesting Menu and Good Brews”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

The butcher board featured 3 tasty choices of meat and the scallops starter was delicious. The pork loin was very moist and flavorful and the sides enhanced the meat. The waiter was very helpful in selecting the accompanying beer. Trendy decor and busy. Enjoyable evening.
