Home Visiting the Brewery

About the Brewery

Welcome to DC Brau! Located in Northeast DC, the brewery spans more than 48,500 square-feet of warehouse space off of Bladensburg Road. Our tasting room is open for growler fills and on site consumption with specials and events planned throughout the week, including Half Priced Pints on Fridays. Since the brewery is an active production and manufacturing facility, we only offer complimentary tours to the public on Saturdays. Don’t forget your government-issued photo ID!

  • Bring your own growler to fill* – it doesn’t matter if it’s one of ours or a growler from another brewery – we can fill “standard” 64oz or “half” sized 32oz bottles. Screw-top or Flip-top: it’s all good with us!
  • Don’t have a growler? We sell DC Brau-branded growlers on-site in both sizes
  • We also have 32-oz Crowlers for one-time fills
  • Important: Filled growlers are for take-home only, and may NOT be consumed on-premises.


We love groups! For information on reserving tables for parties of 16 or less, please contact us in advance.

Parking is available in our private lot.**

We encourage you to designate a driver or take a taxi or car service to the brewery. The closest Metro stop is Brookland-CUA (red line) approximately 2 miles away.

* Our staff reserves the right to determine if a container is suitable or not for filling.

** DC Brau, its staff, and our property owners and management company are not responsible for accidents or vehicle damage incurred on site or in the lot.



  • FREE tours are held only on Saturdays from 1 to 4pm
  • No reservation required for small parties; participation is first-come, first-served
  • For your personal safety and for the safety of your fellow brewery guests, visitors planning to participate in the brewery tour or who plan on walking around the interior of the brewery MUST wear closed-toe shoes (i.e. boots or sneakers, no flip flops or sandals). No exceptions!

The Tasting Room

The taproom is open 4 days a week for your tasting enjoyment. We’re closed Monday – Wednesday. In addition to growler fills & six packs to go, we also sell pints and tasters to be consumed on site. While we regularly have a visiting food truck in the lot on Saturdays & sell a selection of locally-produced snacks, you’re welcome to bring in outside food to enjoy with your beer!

Fridays | Half-Priced Pint Night on Flagship Beers All Night Long!
