The Washington, D.C. brewing scene has exploded in recent years. From Port City in Alexandria, Virginia to DC Brau in Bladensburg and Three Stars Brewing near Brightwood, this city is starting to gain credibility in the world of beer.
That trend is unlikely to stop, especially with the upcoming opening of Bluejacket Brewery down near Nationals Park . With all this new development going on in the District, it’s sometimes easy to forget the rich brewing history Washington, D.C. has.
When it comes to making beer, this city’s was churning out kegs well before the recent boom. And if you’ve ever wandered around south of Dupont Circle, you’ve walked right past the heart of it.
On the corner
A movement is afoot at local bars, and many establishments are moving their draft beer selections past the typical cheap triumvirate of Coors, Miller and Budweiser. Nowadays, restaurants stock their bars with kegs of craft brews coming from California to Colorado. But what if you want something with a decidedly local twist, something that’s brewed right here in the D.C. Metropolitan area? Well then, you are in luck, because a place like that just opened up this past summer in Falls Church.
