If you’re looking for original Victorian architecture, this historical home has it. We took the brew tasting tour which provided 4 oz samples of local craft brews whilst touring the home. Our selected tour was in the evening and a small group of 6 was provided with an excellent tour. The docent was knowledgeable, friendly, and open addressing everyone’s questions. The tour went a little over the allotted time, but well worth it.

This was an excellent place to visit while touring DC. We did a brewmasters tour which included samples from local breweries. The tour of the house, history, and brewing information were all fantastic. It was a fun event, highly entertaining, and very informational. Highly recommend!

Wonderful tour of an amazing home. Be sure to register for a docent led tour for a history of beer in DC and the House. If you done all the big DC stuff then try this tour for a wonderful experience.

I went on the tour alone, arrived early. 6 older ladies arrived at 5 min after the tour start time. The guide talked so fast, you had to interrupt to ask any questions. He got very annoyed with one woman and it was uncomfortable.

This house is a beauty, with nearly all of it's original elements and furnishings. Amazing the craftsmanship and details. Not much of the furniture looked very comfortable, but there were certainly many beautiful items. The staff was great, and our Docent led tour provided us with.tons of interesting information. Makes me want to learn more about this interesting man. Thank you!
