Right Proper Brewing Company
What started in 2013 as a craft brew pub in Shaw has since expanded to include a dedicated production facility in Brookland and distribution throughout DC bars. A visit to Right Proper is hardly ever the same, whether you make a reservation for indoor dining or walk up to a patio table. Its selection of wild yeast ales rotate frequently and are brewed in small batches, so you never know what may be next on tap. The Shaw location offers a full restaurant with sandwiches, entrees, and comfort food (delivery, too), and the Brookland production house is pouring brews during the week.
Beers to try: The dry-hopped Raised by Wolves pale ale is the most recognizable around the city and a good place to start. For something stronger, be on the lookout for some Baron Corvo, a farmhouse “biere de garde” full of funk, fruit, and spice.
