Capitol City Brewing Co. opened its doors in 1992 as the first brewpub in our nation’s capitol since prohibition, giving its citizens – and its many visitors – the freedom to enjoy some of the finest hand-crafted beer in the country, brewed right on the premises. Operating as a traditional brewpub, they match brewhouse production with on-site bar consumption to serve the freshest beer possible to their customers, unlike large-scale production breweries or hybrids. With state of the art brewhouses located in each restaurant, Capitol City (known by the locals as ‘Cap City’) enables its brewers to closely monitor each phase of the brewing process and bring the beer to you within hours of completion. Fresh brewed from their tanks to your mouth. Can you imagine anything better?
Cap City prides themselves on using only the highest quality hops, fresh yeast and select malts to brew their distinctive ales, lagers and pilsners with aromas as intoxicating as the ABV! On this stop, you’ll also enjoy an excellent menu of regional cuisine cultivated in the Mid-Atlantic area and delivered fresh daily. All of the dishes were developed specifically with their beers in mind to enhance the flavors of both your grub and grain, so sit back, relax and eat and drink like a proud American in one of the brewpubs that started it all.

We highly recommend Capitol City Brewing as a great brewery to explore outside of the DC Brew Tour, as it is not currently on our itinerary.
