Brickhaus

From bank to brothel and now a beergarden - under the helm of Tony Wagner, Brickhaus is a local watering hole unlike any other on Columbia Pike (or in Arlington for that matter). Born in Berlin, Tony pays homage to his homeland with four German beers at the bar and many local beers from regional breweries. If beer is not your thing, their mixologists can accommodate with mixed drinks. The warmth of the exposed beams and a roaring fireplace will likely make you want to linger and enjoy a bite to eat. Want to drink wine? Stop by his other location, Twisted Vines, and enjoy your favorite bottle at the beergarden (a small cork fee applies).

When asked why he chose the Pike for Brickhaus' home, Tony gives several reasons. A German beergarden serves the local brew (you'll find 20 local beers on tap), "it's just what the Pike needed," and he's seen the support with many locals from the neighborhood walking to Brickhaus. Plus, what's not to like about sipping a local brew at the oldest establishment along the Pike? Not being along the Metro hasn't hindered folks from visiting, Tony says since there are other draws such as across-the-street neighbor, Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse. But the car-free attitude isn't just with the clientele. Tony says that close to 90% of his staff walks and bikes to work.

Tony and his family live in Arlington and are active in the local community. Each June, Brickhaus participates in the Columbia Pike Blues Festival and he plans to partner with Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse to participate in a "Piketoberfest" and several scheduled "tap takeovers." Plan to visit Brickhaus car free and enjoy responsibly. Here's how:
