  1. Sounds promising, especially with an outdoor patio area.

    Metrocurean didn't mention anything about what beers they will be offering though.

      I'd imagine it would be the standard Bass/Harp/Guinness/Boddingtons with some local microbrews and ESBs in the mix. I really hope they carry Beamish as I much prefer it Guinness, the Budweiser of stouts. From the map, it looks like it's right on top of the Columbia Heights Metro. An excellent location, I'm sure they'll draw a lot of customers from U Street and Mount Pleasant.

    2. Pork pasties? Surely some mistake...
      Pork pies or Cornish pasties.

        I'd definitely eat either a Porkish Pastie or a Corn Pie if I'd had enough pints of bitter.
