The Brass Tap at National Harbor

Craft beers take center stage at The Brass Tap at National Harbor. The owners of the recently opened craft beer bar are excited about educating patrons about craft beer. “Craft beer is a huge culture shift for the DMV area,” said owners Sharon and Mark Ridley. He wants it to be the neighborhood bar, like “Cheers.” To that end, they offer discounts to National Harbor residents. But they also are aware that people from all over the world visit National Harbor.  By Nicole L. Gill

Our theme of craft beer is ideal and provides guests with 100+ options for beer.
