DC BRAU - Washington DC's First Brewery Since 1956

There are several like-minded brewers and breweries out there, who share our passion for creating great brews.

The Brewer's Art (Baltimore, MD)
The Brewer's Art is a Baltimore, Maryland brewpub and restaurant. Opened on Friday, September 13, 1996. In 2008, it was named by Esquire magazine as the #1 Best Bar in America. The establishment covers two floors: the ground level floor contains a bar and dining room, and the lower level floor contains a smaller bar serving drinks and pub fare as well as multiple small cavernous rooms with tables for eating. It is currently the largest brewer of beer in the city of Baltimore, effectively taking that title upon its opening from the National Brewing Company which closed its doors during the late 1970's.
