  • hopmonster: Food at the V has been good the few times I was there, but the beer is nothing interesting, less special

  • BJones: I have to say that The Beer Joint filing for bankruptcy does not surprise me.  I have never really been impressed with it or The V Eatery.  Everytime I have been to either, the service has been terrible and the beer merely acceptable.

  • hopmonster: So here is some news [link] AB buys Elysian. Really becoming a wild world. These guys are getting out and taking the cash, which I completely respect, but AB's moves continue to confound.

  • hopmonster: Because I am a grumpy old man, I never liked hanging out @ V50.
    January 23, 2015, 03:07:42 PM
  • scootertig: Oddly, the quotes in a number of the articles on the transition from V50 had Anthony saying that they wanted to be a place that "people would hang out" - to such a degree that it came across as somewhat desperate...

  • scootertig: Well, the weird thing is, they originally wore dirndls (not "German Kilts" as one of the articles called them), but the complaints led to a change of uniform.
    January 23, 2015, 02:57:27 PM
  • hopmonster: I like a review that slams them for false advertising because the uniforms were standard server fair. White shirt, black pants not a drindl. Claimed false advertising on the outfit and that the server would be attractive. The concept failed the concept, then there was the reality that it apparently stank regardless.

  • hopmonster: I never made it to TBJ. The concept was off putting. It did not seem like a place to spend an evening. Sort of a warped version of Hooters with a brewery by the looks of the website.

  • scootertig: I also get a kick out of this: "But the name change is what signals a new business and new concept, says Cavallo. If he kept the same name, “people would still be taking us as restaurant.”  ... Cavallo is already looking at franchising further west, into Purcellville, Winchester and Frederick, Md."

  • scootertig: "“The focus is socializing around beer,” says Anthony Cavallo, the owner and Vintage-to-Joint change-maker. “We’re not a restaurant.” "

  • scootertig: Heh, Googling for info on the Beer Joint, I came across this article from Northern Virginia Magazine ([link]) I think I spotted one of the major problems...

  • hopmonster: WTOP finally reported that the Beer Joint filed chapter 7 (liquidation). I guess the only change is that the filing hit versus that it stopped operating.

  • scootertig: Pizza place I'm at right now has 3 Hill Farmstead beers on draft. So far, so good!
