The Brig – Beer garden in the city

This is one of the newer beer gardens showing up in the city. But it’s my favorite. It’s located in the up-and-coming Navy Yard neighborhood, a couple of blocks from the beginning of Capital Hill neighborhood. I love this because there’s little argument about where to head to next afterwards.

I like coming here after work or for a quick 0.5L when friends come into town. They have great seasonal selection of beer on tap, a mix of local and German breweries.

They have traditional beer garden table seating, or you can sit at the bar. In the fall and winter they have glühwein along with heaters so you don’t have to worry about the unpredictable DC winters. Their food is great also. I love getting the pretzels with my liter of beer. Dogs are welcome, too!

The best way to get here is to take the green line to the Navy Yard.  Most beers are $8/0.5L, and food is reasonably priced.
