Breweries in DC to Check out With Your Crew

By Danielle Agugliaro | June 22, 2017 | Food & Drink

There’s no better time of year than summer to sit down with a refreshing glass of locally brewed beer. Grab a few friends and check out some of the great brews the Capitol has to offer.

Right Proper Brewing Company's Shaw Brewpub and Kitchen

This pub not only has its own great selection of beer, but also amazing southern-style food to go along with it. Plus, the eccentric murals painted on the walls create a fun ambiance for you and your friends' night out. 624 T St. NW, 202-607-2337

3 Stars Brewing Company

You’ll almost be able to tell this brewery was started by two longtime friends when you experience the casual, comfortable atmosphere in 3 Stars. They give tours of their award-winning brewery on-site every Saturday afternoon, so visit for a great start to happy hour. 6400 Chillum Place NW, 202-670-0333

Hellbender Brewing Company

This brewery, named after an endangered salamaner, uses sustainable processes to brew their beers and reduce the impact each brew has on the local community's natural resources. It's a great place to go with environmentally conscious friends and beer lovers alike. 5788 2nd St. NE, 202-827-8768


Built in an industrial complex in 1919, Bluejacket creates a unique atmosphere for diners. Grab a draft beer and a bite before heading over to Nationals Park for a baseball game. 300 Tingey St. SE, 202-524-4862

District Chop House & Brewery

At this buzzing brewery and steakhouse you can forget small plate pub food and instead opt for a house-crafted beer with a large plate of steak and potatoes. A perfect choice for a Friday night happy hour of dinner and drinks with great company. 509 7th St. NW, 202-347-3434
