Capitol City Brewing Co. opened its doors in 1992 as the first brew pub in our nation’s capitol since prohibition, thus giving its citizens and its many visitors the freedom to enjoy some of the finest hand-crafted beer in the country. On the front of our menu is the symbol of freedom, the Lady Liberty, a statue found atop our namesake, the United States Capitol.
Our dedicated brewers identify and use only the highest quality hops, fresh yeast and select malt to brew many of the world’s great ales, lagers and pilsners. Our state of the art brew-houses located in each restaurant enable our brewers to closely monitor each phase of the brewing process and bring the beer to you within hours of completion, fresher than you ever thought possible. We gladly give tours of the brewery upon request.
We have always taken great pride in our beer so come in and enjoy a cold pint of our very best and match it to one of the many menu selections tailored to the brews we serve. Our Chefs have developed and excellent menu of regional cuisine using ingredients cultivated in the Mid-Atlantic area and delivered fresh daily. Many of the items were developed specifically with our beer in mind and our imaginative Chefs have used our beer in many of the dishes in ways sure to delight.
We invite you to sample both of our unique locations in the Washington area. Our Virginia location offers a spacious view of the pedestrian promenade of the Village at Shirlington and a large patio to enjoy whenever the weather permits. Discover where it all started and stop by the original Capitol City Brewing Co. location at the corner of 11th and H St. NW.
