About the Brewery
A Family Friendly Brewpub Since 2002
How Our Beer Is Made
Our beers are brewed in house by our brewmaster Jeff Hancock on a 10-barrel Bohemian Brewing Company system (see our end-to-end brewing process here). We focus on brewing a wide variety of styles, and are extremely proud to have 18 beers on tap at a time, plus a house-made, caffeine- and gluten-free root beer. Our root beer is made with cane sugar and is nature-friendly too — we’ve partnered with the Anacostia Watershed Society to donate $0.10 for every root beer bottle returned. See the back of our bottle for details.
In addition, Franklins' beers are never pasteurized, nor are any chemical preservatives or additives used. Many of our beers are fit for vegan consumption and any product like lactose (milk sugar) or honey will be noted on the beer menu. Explore the full A-Z selection of our beers.
Awards and Recognition
Franklins has won over 180 awards at competitions like the Great British Beer Festival, the Great International Beer Competition, the United States Beer Tasting Championship, and the Maryland Craft Beer Competition.
