If a beer connoisseur tried a different beer every day, it would take more than 13 years to sample every beer that RFD Washington has served. Since 1957, Regional Food and Drink (RFD) has slaked thirst with more than 5,000 types of beer, totaling a staggering 25 million total glasses served—a figure that earned it a Guinness World Record, among many other awards.
The sister bar to the Brickskeller restaurant, RFD taps more than 30 beers at any given time, including a rotating selection of rare beers and handcrafted brews from breweries such as Gouden Carolus, La Chouffe, and Tröegs. It also carries more than 300 varieties of bottled beer, as well as premium liquors, single malts, and small-batch bourbons. The food menu has no choice but to revolve around beer, with dishes such as the 12-ounce strip steak in a stout marinade, and the brew burger, a half-pound Angus beef patty marinated in black lager and grilled on top of a keg.
Inside RFD, flat-screen TVs line the running boards and refrigerators line the walls, proudly showcasing the cache of microbrews and handcrafted ales. Flags and banners dangle from the rafters, signaling to families and beer aficionados that they may have finally met their malted matches.
