Welcome

Meridian Pint was founded on the premise of environmental sustainability. Our strict focus on American craft beer allows us to eliminate the impact of Trans Atlantic shipping as well as maintain a locally based revenue stream. In addition, we serve mostly draft beer enabling us to reduce our impact on recycling resources. A large percentage of our Chef driven, seasonal menu is sourced from local and regional farms. Pairing great beer with unique dinners, cheeses or appetizers enables us to elevate the growing culture of craft beer here in Washington, DC.

Composting the bulk of our waste helps us reduce our impact on landfills to less than 10%. Furthermore, much of the equipment, furniture, construction materials and design elements have been recycled or reclaimed. Our energy source comes from wind mill farms in the way of green energy credits. Finally, 95% of our staff lives within walking distance helping to minimize parking problems, traffic flow and overall reduce our carbon foot print.

It is our hope to be environmental stewards to the community and hopefully convey a better way of doing business through the spirit of American craft beer. We hope you enjoy your experience.

—John Andrade, Owner

Beer

We focus 100% on American Craft Beer with a strong emphasis on local and regional brewers. While the international beer community has great history, culture and flavors we have found that American brewers are taking brewing to a unique artistic level that is taking the beer world by storm.

As Washington, DC continues to be the fastest growing craft beer market in the country we have found several of our local brewers to be creating some of the finest beers we've ever tasted. You will see many of these great beers on our draft and bottle menu. Cheers!

Food

In our continued efforts to maximize quality and sustainability we make every effort to source the highest quality of food we can. Whenever possible, we reach out to our local farming partners located in Virginia, Maryland and even right here in DC for everything from produce to meats. We do this so in an effort to provide you with the best and healthiest product at the most affordable price we can. Enjoy!

Whiskey

There is only one spirit that goes hand in hand with beer better than any other, Whiskey. That said, we truly enjoy offering a healthy collection of American Craft Whiskeys as well as some from abroad. The move towards craft distilleries in the States is growing at nearly the same pace as craft beer giving us the opportunity to explore a great variety of innovations from creative distillers as they happen. Cheers!
