    I worked at Capitol City Brewing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great location and metropolitan area to work. Nice and friendly co-workers at multiple locations. Many events and opportunities to interact with other businesses in the brewing industry and others in the greater DC area. Established brewery with long history and recipes for its beers. Good place to start into the industry.

    Cons

    Not much enthusiasm from management or oversight of operations because the business is very spread out. Owner has multiple businesses and prefers to more or less show no interest in keeping the brewery updated from where it originally once years ago. Other breweries in the area have more contemporary facilities, appealing food, and just offer more of what consumers today want from this industry.

    Advice to Management

    Work conditions and customer appeal have simply been surpassed by competitors in the DC area. Although it is the first brewpub in the area, the upper management needs to recognize that using the brewery as a cash cow for other businesses is limiting their ability to stay relevant and will only become a bigger problem.
