Since 1992, Capitol City Brewing Company restaurants have served more than 15 million pints and brewed over 200 different styles of beer. Over the last twenty years, the local brewpub has used four million pounds of grain and more than 50 thousand pounds of hops to brew nearly 5,000 batches of beer. Capitol City Brewing Co. is the Washington region's first brewpub since Prohibition and has served approximately one million free pretzels to its customers -- a restaurant perk and one of Washington’s best-kept secrets.
