The weekend means brunch and in honor of Oktoberfest, here are 5 places beer and brunch go hand in hand.
Meridian Pint features an extensive brunch menu featuring various vegetarian options as well as a variety of local beers, Meridian Pint can brighten even the roughest mornings.
“Chances are you were here the previous evening and nursing a hangover. I cannot think of a better way to shrug off that headache than to revisit the scene of the crime and grab a great, local beer (enter: hair of the dog) and comparably awesome meal. I am a huge fan of the Curried Tofu Scramble and more often than not, I might just opt to skip the breakfast portion and hop on over to the lunch — after all, “-unch” is in the word “brunch”. When I audible with this maneuver, I spring for the Homemade Lentil-Barley Burger with Sweet Potato Wedges.” Featured in Best DC Brunch 2014.
An little piece of Germany here in DC featuring authentic food options as well as good beer. It’s always Oktoberfest here.
“An H Street staple since its inception, Biergarten Haus offers a massive outdoor beer garden behind its deceptively small indoor space. With 16 German beers available as well as a selection of authentic German food including smoked and cured fish, fresh pretzel rolls, spatzle, shnitzel, and other filling carb-y goodness, Biergarten Haus is your best bet for a true Deutsche beer garden experience.” Featured in the DC Beer Garden Guide.
From house brined corned beef hash to fried chicken and waffles, Birch and Barley features a variety of brunch options. Just make sure you as for their draft list.
“Kyle Bailey’s dishes are what classy yet comforting brunch dreams are made of (house brined hash with duck eggs, kale caesar salads and more) but Tiffany MacIsaac’s pastries are absolutely worth blowing all your and your Mother’s diet resolutions on: the warm brioche sticky buns (see photo by Jeff Martin below) with brown sugar caramel, pecans and cream cheese are in particular to die for.” Featured in Best DC Brunch 2014.
Home of the “Bloody Beer,” and other interesting cocktails as well as a whole section of the menu featuring waffles.
“The Belgian newcomer/sister restaurant to Belga on 14th street boasts a sturdy brunch menu (braised pork cheeks! skillet of eggs WITH LOBSTER!) and some truly great brunch cocktails, including a BLOODY BEER.” Check out B Too and other great DC brunch spots with Best DC Brunch 2014.
Bottomless Mimosas, a Bloody Mary Bar and Craft Beer…the perfect weekend morning.
“Craft beer is, quite simply, the backbone of City Tap House. There are kegs and microbrews stocked behind a glass barrier, which you can find next to a large banquet table. Behind the bar, there’s somewhat of a tasting room where guests can perch privately from the rest of the crowd, while still receiving service directly from the bartender.” Check it out here.
