I was thinking about taking the Red Line out the the DFH Ale House in Gaithersburg if I couldn't find anything in DC.
It's a pretty good place and the happy hour is handy, but it gets jam packed with all the big company's nearby. Food is usually good too. I was just working down there and still have an apt stumbling distance away. The bottle prices are exorbitant though. Bottle of Red & White was like $25, which is ridiculous cause its $13 at a nearby bottle shop. Palo Santo on tap is worth it though.
There's also a brewpub in old Gaithersburg called Growlers which makes some pretty good beers.
I'd hit up ChurchKey in DC, maybe The Brickskeller for beer bars. District ChopHouse and Gordon Biersch are right by to each other.
Fermenting: Flanders Red Ale
