But all will be forgiven if you are legit. Wet Dog Tavern looked super close to opening back in November. Their last Facebook update was written Dec. 7th:

“…We have a great relationship with our PA brewery and they’re willing to craft and customize great beers for us. We love their product and are looking forward to introducing another great brand to the city. We are prideful neighbors, we are DC lifers… and, we are frequent travelers. We do plan to carry a few locals, since of course, who wouldn’t?! Our plan, however is to not JUST carry local beers or base the majority of our list on them. Over the past 2-3 years of dining and drinking around the city, especially the U St. & 14th St. corridor, we tend to find the same 4-5 local brews on beer lists/taps, which for some people is great, but we at Wet Dog would like to offer a little more.

On a few recent trips around the states, we were quite pleased to find 1 or 2 of our DMV area beers included in a few of the multi-state/microbrew beer lists. This drove our desire to represent “home”, wherever patrons may feel that is . With less than half of the residents of our beloved city actually being from DC, we love the idea of giving people a little taste of their past and/or future. All I’m saying is that at the end of the day, Wet Dog Tavern is located in our nation’s capital… we just want to rep the little guys of our great nation!
Hope this helps clarify and hope to meet you soon!

Stay warm!
Wet Dog”
