From a press release:
“Atlas Brew Works announced today that Markus Smith will lead the charge as general manager of the brewery’s second location, opening across from Nationals Park in Capitol Riverfront this spring.
“We are extremely pleased for Markus to join the Atlas team and lead our Half Street Brewery & Tap Room,” said Atlas Brew Works Founder & CEO Justin Cox. “Markus is a consummate industry professional; his experience and hospitality philosophy is an exciting addition to Atlas’ management team. We’re looking forward to him leading the charge to make sure our customers at our new ballpark location have the wonderful local craft beer experience Atlas has come to be known for.”
Markus was an integral part in opening Rocket Bar, a Chinatown staple and home to Washington Capitals and Wizards fans’ pre- and post-game celebrations. He later became general manager of Iron Horse Tap Room, leading team members and overseeing the bar’s heralded craft beer program.
Now, Markus is excited to entertain Washington Nationals and DC United fans at Atlas Brew Works’ forthcoming Half Street location. In this new role, Markus will oversee the brewery’s tap room operations, while maintaining a strong, positive employee culture, focused on growth and development.”
