With its media party last Thursday evening, the long awaited opening ofÂ Brookland PintÂ happens: TODAY, Monday, August 18th. In case you are wondering “where is Brookland?” (which has been on the forefront of cool hoods in which to live, dine, drink, work, and play) it is the “neighborhood in the Northeast quadrant of Washington, D.C., historically centered along 12th Street NE. Brookland is bounded by 9th Street NE to the west, Rhode Island Avenue NE to the south, and South Dakota Avenue to the east. Michigan Avenue is the northern boundary between 9th and 14th Streets.”
Considered a “quietly trending” versus “booming” area byÂ Curbed, visitors and residents alike will be thrilled atÂ John Andrade’sÂ (owner ofÂ Meridian PintÂ andÂ Smoke & Barrel)Â American craft beer and American casual cuisine-type restaurant in the heart of the community. Designed with historical significance in mind, Brookland Pint seeks to promote a festive environment that can both stand the test of time as well as encourage environmental sustainability. Nearly every aspect of the dÃ©cor has a story and connects with the history of America, some rather indicative of the 30â€™s and 40â€™s, especially the celebration of women and womenâ€™s empowerment. The unique atmosphere of Brookland Pint is made complete with individual USB/electrical plugs situated along the bar and at nearly every table! Brookland Pint offers a vast array of 24 craft beers with an inviting indoor/outdoor atmosphere.
The all-American restaurant & bar, which will seat 118 people indoors and 48 on the patio, will feature local grown and harvested foods that range from southern comfort dishes to American classics. Neighborhood chef,Â Rebecca Hassell, has delighted the DC area with her talents at several favorite restaurants and has since helped create an extensive menu that displays foods that embrace the melting pot that is America.
Upon stepping through the doors of Brookland Pint, you will notice the primary focal point: the bar. Crafted entirely from some of Marylandâ€™s finest reclaimed wood, which was acquired from Southern Maryland tobacco barns. This wood was also used for the community table as well as trim throughout the restaurant. The bar is stocked with 24 all-American craft beers and sits adjacent to a white Vermont marble and glass enclosed beer tap and refrigeration unit which houses all of the high end, large format beer bottles.
Brookland Pintâ€™s banquet room, called the Juniper Room, is named after the Virginia Juniper tree that was reclaimed after it fell on Utah Street, NW during the Derechio of 2012. The banquet room tables are made of this wood and exemplify the clear ties to history and community owner Andrade is looking to establish.
Brookland Pint will be open for brunch, lunch and dinner 7 days a week and will stay open until 2am Sunday â€“ Thursday and 3am Friday and Saturday. For the first few weeks Brookland Pint will open at 5pm.
