Brookland PintBrookland What it is: Another beer-slinging beauty from the guys behind Meridian Pint and Smoke & Barrel, located in a newly buzzed-about neighborhood. Why you should care: Sheer numbers. They have seven burgers, four tasty quesadillas, and dozens of craft brews on draft. Added bonuses: a dog-friendly patio, convenient places to charge your phone, a commitment to sustainability, vegetarian-friendly bar food, and a big mural displaying the Old Abe quote “Folks who have no vices have very few virtues.” Read the entire article HERE.

The newest addition to DC’s beer scene is now open: Brookland Pint, a bar/restaurant from Meridian Pint and Smoke & Barrel’s John Andrade, poured its first drafts for the public on Monday. The rustic, 118-seat watering hole lies close to the Brookland Metro station and Catholic University, and stands ready to serve the neighborhood with craft brews and an eclectic lineup of dishes from chef Rebecca Hassell. Here’s what you need to know.
The vibe: Casually hip (hey, it’s Brookland). Community tables are fashioned from wood reclaimed from Maryland tobacco barns, works from different local artists will rotate on the walls, and there’s a 48-seat patio for hanging with your four-legged friends.
The beer: Two dozen craft drafts, plus some unusual bottles. Familiar faces such as DC Brau and Flying Dog are joined by less common finds like AleSmith Speedway Stout. The rarest stuff can be sipped from large-format bottles, which are stocked in a glass-enclosed refrigeration unit for you to browse.
The connectivity: USB ports and electrical outlets adorn the bar and nearly every table, which will come in handy for lunching with your laptop when afternoon service begins (or documenting an epic evening). Rather connect face to face? The restaurant’s large windows open onto the patio, allowing those inside to chat with outdoor pals.
The food (vegan/vegetarian): Similar to Andrade’s other spots, the meat-free crowd have plenty of options when it comes to eating. The eclectic menu includes vegetarian and vegan items in nearly every category, from black bean and goat cheese quesadillas (available with vegan Daiya cheese) to veggie curry and lentil-barley burgers.
The food (animal-inspired): That said, beer goes pretty well with meat and cheese. Look for a number of Southern dishes, such as deviled eggs, barbecue pulled-pork sandwiches, and pimiento spread with toasted ciabatta. Less cohesive are a global range of items, from pita with marinated feta and grilled lamb kebabs to Puerto Rican mofongo (smashed plantains with optional crispy pork).
The happy hour: Dollar-off drafts, select wines, and house liquor from 5 to 7 Monday through Friday.
On the horizon: More time at Brookland Pint. Look for lunch and weekend brunch to start soon, as well as reservations.
Brookland Pint. 716 Monroe St., NE; 202-758-2757. Current hours: Monday to Thursday 5 to 2, Friday and Saturday 5 to 3, Sunday 5 to 2. Lunch and brunch coming soon.

D.C. Beer Week newsOkay, it’s not technically related to Beer Week, but Brookland Pint officially opens tonight at 5 p.m. Beer director Jace Gonnerman is tapping some very special beers for the occasion, including Firestone Walker’s Stickee Monkey Belgian quadruple ale, the 2012 Oxbow Oxtoberfest (a barrel aged saison, not an Oktoberfest), and a very rare keg of the Firestone Walker Parabajava, a version of the acclaimed Parabola Russian imperial stout infused with coffee. Here’s what you need to know about Brookland’s new beer bar.
Posted by Jessica Sidman on Aug. 18, 2014 at 11:36 amJust in time for D.C. Beer Week, Brookland Pint opens its doors in the Monroe Street Market development in Brookland today. The timing, however, is purely coincidental: “I was trying to get open months ago,” says owner John Andrade. The restaurant will have a lot of similarities to its sister establishment, Meridian Pint, in Columbia Heights: all American craft beers, a vegan- and vegetarian-friendly menu, and an emphasis on all things local and environmentally friendly. In fact, many of the staff and management of Meridian Pint are now at Brookland Pint. The bar has 24 beers on tap plus some large-format bottles. Look out for “No Sleep ‘Til Brookland,” a dry-hopped IPA brewed exclusively for Brookland Pint by Franklins brewery in Hyattsville. While you can expect various beer events at Brookland Pint, Andrade says it likely won’t be as much of a beer-nerd destination as Meridian Pint. “I don’t think anybody does it as well as Meridian Pint, and I don’t aspire to try to compete with that,” he says. (Because Brookland Pint is just opening, there will be no D.C. Beer Week-specific events there this week.) Chef and Brookland resident Rebecca Hassell is carrying over burgers and quesadillas from Meridian Pint, but you’ll also find dishes like kashmini curry, Puerto Rican mofongo, and fish and chips. Lunch and brunch will begin Sept. 1. One of the best perches in the restaurant is along the huge open windows where bar stools straddle a counter between the indoors and outdoor patio. The bar area has two long community tables made with wood beams from a southern Maryland tobacco farm, plus USB ports and outlets along the bar itself. The marble on the back bar and around the beer cooler come from a quarry in Vermont that also supplied marble to the Jefferson and Lincoln memorials. Turn the corner, and you’ll find two-tops and booths plus a banquet room in the back that can seat an additional 30 people. Andrade also believes that restrooms are one of the most important of the restaurant aesthetically. If they’re dirty, he says, it tells diners that those same (lack of) standards are applied to the rest of the restaurant. “This is probably one of the most hands on environments in a restaurant and often the most overlooked,” he says. At Brookland Pint, all the stalls are unisex, but men and women share the same hand-washing area. And if Andrade has his way, they better be clean. Check out more photos and the menus below. The private dining room called the Juniper Room. The tables are made from a Virginia Juniper tree that fell on Utah St. NW during the 2012 derecho. More seating: Outdoor seating:
