Well I wasn’t expecting to hear this today! I spoke with the folks opening the tavern Dew Drop Inn coming to the upstairs space and they say it is unknown what will become of that space. It will be decided in the coming month or so – stay tuned on that front. Thanks to all who emailed – from Chocolate City Beer:

“After three and a half years in business, Chocolate City Beer will be closing its doors and turning off the lights on December 31st 2014. We want to give a heartfelt THANK YOU!!! to all our supporters, friends and family, to our neighbors in Brookland, Edgewood and to the greater DC/DMV region. It was our pleasure to be a part of the local craft beer renaissance since 2011.
We will remain open for our regular Growler Hours both Saturdays December, 20th and 27th, as well as a couple TBA weekday nights approaching New Years Eve.

Our latest and sadly, last brew is in the tank, a New Brew: a heavily hopped Black IPA named GoodBye.P.A.- w/ Citra and Galaxy Hops and a strong roasted malt backbone.

Be sure to swing by, say farewell, pick up some Growlers of the last Cornerstone Copper Ale, Cerveza Nacional Black Lager and our swan song GoodBye.P.A.”

Such an incredibly cool space begging for a bar. I’m very psyched to share this news from the owners of Wonderland (11th and Kenyon St, NW):

“Dew Drop Inn will have an American deli menu: sandwiches, soups, salads, bbq. And drinks. And a deck for trainspotting.”

If all goes well they plan on opening above Chocolate City Brewery (near the new Mess Hall) in late Spring/early Summer. Knock wood, knock wood! Stay tuned for tons of updates on this place because I’m beyond excited about the prospect.
