Brickskeller recently closed on Dec. 18th at 1523 22nd St NW. When I stopped by on Sunday the awning was taken down and signs were up announcing the new name and opening date. WTOP got a bit of background:
“We found that the name Bier Baron rolled off the tongue and was easy to remember,” Merrifield says.
When the bar opens, there will be 350 different kinds of beers left over from the Brickskeller. Those beers will be part of a special “Brickskeller blowout” menu.
Five hundred other new beers have already been ordered as well.
And they say the new awning should be up by Friday. Looking forward to see/hear if the new incarnation will win back some old fans.
