Opened November 23, 1993.
Brewer: Brian Cofresi.
300 bbl annual capacity.
Not to be confused with the River City Brewing Company of Jacksonville FL, nor the one in Wichita KS. OK beers and good - but pricey - food here. Try the "Cowboy Pasta".
Directions: Find the Macy's on L Street, then find the nearby parking garage. Park there, go into the attached mall, and you're there.
