Briar Common Brewery + Eatery
This is a chic place with nice seating options: There's a ground-level restaurant/bar area and upstairs there's another bar with both indoor and outdoor patio seating. The beers here are divided into three categories (American, Belgian, and Rotating). No matter what you order among the beer and food menus, you realize that everything here is made with tender care and appreciation for subtlety and nuance. (Even the pickles and bread are made from scratch!) Briar Common is very good at advising you on how to pair the beer with the food. Their "Chef & Brewer Tasting Menu" gives you three courses, each paired carefully with a different beer.
Briar (Pale Ale), Thistle (IPA), Rochus (Porter), Joyce (Saison) and Lanham (Dubbel).
