Casual, Good Bar Menu after soccer match at RFK

I will be in town for the USA vs Jamaica match at RFK this weekend. The match should wrap up around 5-5:30 and wanted to grab a bite after the match for an early dinner.
Is there anywhere that fits the following criteria, either walking distance or close Metro proximity to RFK stadium?
- Excellent Bar Menu or Dining Room Menu you can order at the Bar.
- Solid Beer List or Cocktail program
- Casual so I wont be out of place in my Jamaica Jersey, Flip Flops and Shorts.
Any type of cuisine is fine, but "New American" or something along those lines would be preferable but any ethnic options would not be ignored either.
The only thing available around RFK will be food venders selling the usual game fair. The closest area with restaurant and bars will be H St NE take a cab or hop on the Metro to Penn/Quarter or Gallery Place Chinatown you won't be out of place with a Jamaica Jersey or flip flops
For the best beer list in town, catch the blue or orange line from the stadium to McPherson Square. Walk about 10 mins. up 14th St. to ChurchKey. The food there is OK, not really special, but there are a lot of excellent restaurants within a few blocks.
For an excellent, if pricey Belgian beer list, check out Brasserie Beck (a few blocks north of Metro Center). They have great mussels and frites.
PS7, a few blocks north of Gallery Place Metro, has wonderful cocktails and excellent food - don't miss their tuna sliders!

Another place along the lines of The Gibson - The Passenger, and its inner sanctum, The Columbia Room. I still haven't been, but it's gotten a lot of great buzz on this board - do a search for recs and info. I remember reading that The Passenger has great bar food too. Also, a prolific NYC hound visited DC and as I recall had great things to say about TCR.
