“a pretty decent selection of craft beers for a great price (all beers are between $5-7).”

A reader reports:

“I stopped by the new Neal Place Tap+Garden yesterday and wanted to report that it is now open! They have been apparently open for close to 2 months, and even though I have stopped by there multiple times I did not see many people there so I assumed they were not open.

We walked in yesterday and talked with one of the employees. They have been open for about two months. It is open Thursday through Sunday each week (entirely sure on the hours for those days). Just thought it would be nice to send out another update on the blog to let people, who may not be quite as inquisitive as I was, know that the new beer garden is now open. They had a pretty decent selection of craft beers for a great price (all beers are between $5-7).”

    Any news on the beer garden south of Nationals Park? Hopefully they’ll get it together before the end of the season. Also, the building across from the stadium on Potomac Avenue looks like it’s getting close to being finished. The restaurant on the ground floor appears to be coming along nicely.

    They also have sun shades, which must not have been installed yet when this picture was taken. (Also bocce and cornhole, but sunshades would be my primary concern as someone making a snap decision based on this photo)

      especially this week!

  • Please tell me that’s an old photo? Otherwise it looks very uninviting…

    When I pay $5-7 for a beer, I expect much more of an atmosphere than what’s pictured above (I’m imagining sunshades). Nobody lives there quite yet and few people will go out of their way for the honor of drinking on a barren concrete lot. Guess they’ve figured this out by now…

    I was there this past weekend too. This picture was during construction. They now have a tented bar area (and an actual bar, with they didn’t have when this pic was taken!), sun shades, bocce and cornhole, and some decorative plants :)

      And fairy lights etc. It actually is a nice atmosphere, and we had fun!

    Very friendly staff – but one critique I have after visiting is that the ‘$5-$7’ beers are in 12oz flimsy plastic cups.

    The title ‘beer garden’ normally suggests 0.5L glasses are available, at the very least pint glasses (~16oz?).

    Not trying to sound gluttonous, but those cups just felt out of place in a ‘beer garden’.

      Seriously at least give me a 16oz cup in a beer garden!

    • Same thing at Canteen.

        Oh now that place is a real joke. NRG continues their slide toward mediocrity.

    Seeing zero “garden” here…still screams parking lot even with sunshades
