In case you missed it, Bardo(1200 Bladensburg Rd) is now serving their own beers. We haven't had a chance to try them, but these guys have been making their own beers for decades and have been known to make some very good stuff. A press release about their release of their first two specialty beers, which will be tapped tomorrow evening follows. If you haven't been to Bardo yet, a chance to try some of their brews for $3.45 a pint seems like great excuse to stop by and check them out. Bardo is open Tuesday through Friday starting at 6 pm and weekends starting at 1 pm. Bardo Brewpub releases first two specialty brews.
Just two weeks after the debut of their first five beers, Bardo is now introducing two cask conditioned specialty brews. A chestnut oak aged stout and a dry hopped pale ale will be tapped Wednesday, August 20th.
Bardo Rodeo operated in the 90's as the largest brewpub in the country. The 22000 sq. ft. former car dealership included 900 indoor & 700 outdoor seats as well as a 25-barrel brewhouse. As one of the first bars in the Clarendon neighborhood in Arlington VA, Bardo brewed 4000 kegs a year and enjoyed thousands of visitors each weekend.
The decision to put the brewery in storage for more than a decade proved a fortuitous one. Bardo head man, Bill Stewart, had been living overseas for years when his brother, Andrew, convinced him to come back stateside a start making beer again. "I didn't know craft brewing had become cool again. We rode the last wave, we decided to jump on this wave." Bill stated.
To commemorate the 20th anniversary of their first brew, Bardo is pricing all beers like it's 1994. For a limited time, you can enjoy $3.45 pints, $9.91 pitchers and $14.11 growler fills of Bardo brew.
