Located in Old Town Alexandria. Filled with people who love their dogs, middle aged people, and old buildings. It's not close to any metro stop, but a nice walk through the brick sidewalks toward the Potomac river makes it an enjoyable destination. From the right spots along the river the Capitol Building can be seen. The location is along Union Street, a revolving door entrance greets you with a U shaped bar and plenty of booth seating. The stools are interesting as they seems to cradle your ass beautifully - but they don't have backs.

At about 5pm on a Saturday night it seemed pleasant, not too noisy, but it's shoulder to shoulder on the weekend night from what I hear.

The selections is somewhat slim, but with some local selections like Starr Hill and Virginia Native (I don't know much about this brewery, but the Red was decent). I also had a Harpoon IPA on tap. Never got a chance to inspect the bottle selection. All I saw in the bottle was Bud Light.

The food was okay, I wasn't impressed by it. If you like oysters then this place will probably suit you. I've never had the pleasure of enjoying an oyster, and I doubt I ever will, but they seem to be good enough to be able to consume all 5 or 10 in your ice bucket plate thing.

Not the best beer destination in NoVA but it's certainly worth a visit. At least they have the local microbrews in tap, which is usually the minimum expectation I have for any place worth visiting. Old town Alexandria is nice, a good place to visit, and this is one of the better destinations. Recommended.
