City-State Brewing Coming to Ivy City in 2019

City-State Brewing, [Twitter, website, Instagram] which has had a name, a concept, a brewer, and some home-brewed beers since at least October 2016, has signed a lease to open in Ivy City in spring/summer 2019. City-State, which comes from James Warner, is slated to open in the Hecht’s warehouse development from Douglas Properties. Eater (Warren Rojas) reported in April 2017 that the brewery has been looking for a 30-barrel, 10,000 square foot facility.

According to its website, City-State claims to be the first all-bottle lineup in DC (though surely will sell draft beer via kegs) with 11.2 oz. Steinie bottles to differentiate from competition. The line-up is slated to have at least 5 different beers: an Abbey Dubbel, Dark Wheat, IPA, Saison, and a Maibox (all with great names and labels)

Warner has partnered with Mothersauce Partners and Nick Freshman, who co-owns Spider Kelly’s in Ballston and has partnered to open up the new The Eleanor in Noma.

As mentioned above, this spot has been in the works for a couple years as Warner and partners (some awkward back-story here) have looked for investors.

Once this spot opens a year or so from now, City-State will join DC’s other production breweries with sales off-site, after DC Brau, Atlas, 3 Stars, Hellbender, Right Proper, Bluejacket, and likely the new Red Bear coming to the old Uline Arena in NoMa (now known for REI), RIP Chocolate City!
