Capitol City Brewing Co.
This local microbrewery offers space, a copper bar and an awesome for happy hour. They offer five or so on-site brewed beers and the beer names are high on the ironic side; for example, “Prohibition Porter” is among one of the favorites of locals. This location definitely packs the house with a lot of Hill staffers, which makes for a much livelier crowd than at the New York Ave. location. You definitely should come thirsty and you can also make this a meeting place for your friends arriving at the nearby Union Station. Don't forget to try their complimentary pretzels with mustard sauce and their award winning chowder.
