Notes

Visited: July 5, 1994

Opened: 1992

Annual Production: 1,530 bbl

Contributor: Logan Perkins

Demand for Capitol City's beers outstripped the cramped brewery's ability to supply them, so this location stopped brewing in November 2002. The restaurant remains open, with beer supplied by Capitol City's Arlington, Virginia brewery.

I'm told that this brewery is back in production as of 2018.
