This was an excellent place to visit while touring DC. We did a brewmasters tour which included samples from local breweries. The tour of the house, history, and brewing information were all fantastic. It was a fun event, highly entertaining, and very informational. Highly recommend!

Wonderful tour of an amazing home. Be sure to register for a docent led tour for a history of beer in DC and the House. If you done all the big DC stuff then try this tour for a wonderful experience.

I went on the tour alone, arrived early. 6 older ladies arrived at 5 min after the tour start time. The guide talked so fast, you had to interrupt to ask any questions. He got very annoyed with one woman and it was uncomfortable.

Before seeing this house, I had just watched Ken Burns' historic series on Prohibition, which gave me a whole different perspective while visiting this house. I imagined what this family must have endured during the anti-German WWI era. Mr. Heinrich owned a brewery in the...More
