Since we found out that Right Proper Brewing Company was opening a brewing operation and tasting room in Brookland about a year ago, we have been tracking their progress. We were happy to see this recent story in the City Paper with sneak peek pictures and additional details. From the story:
The current equipment setup will allow Right Proper to grow from brewing 1,000 barrels a year at the brewpub to up to 15,000 barrels per year at the new brewery, with room to add more tanks to expand beyond that. Cheston predicts they’ll make 3,500 barrels in the new brewery’s first year of operation. The expansion means you’ll start seeing Right Proper’s brews at restaurants and retailers around town.
The tasting room, adorned with rich cherry wood, will have 12 draft lines and two high-tech growler fillers that can pour beer from any of the 12 lines. The bar and tables seat about 45 and are made from wood sourced from a single fallen tree from co-owner John Snedden’s back yard.
Hours will be Thursday and Friday from 5:00 to 9:00 pm and Saturday and Sunday from 1:00 to 9:00 pm. Right Proper will be located at 920 Girard St. NE and should open sometime in December.
