Mad Fox Brewing Company has set Monday, August 17 as the opening date for its second location in the Glover Park neighborhood of Washington, D.C., the News-Press confirmed Wednesday.

Officially Mad Fox Brewing Company Tap Room, the new D.C. restaurant will be smaller than its Little City space with seating for about 120 compared to close to 400 in Falls Church. While there will be no brewing onsite, the Glover Park joint will have 32 independent draft lines, split evenly between its main bar and a smaller bar on the second level plus three cask engines available downstairs.

A smaller menu comes with the smaller space as the D.C. lineup will be free of pizza and offer significantly fewer entrees. However, there will be a large selection of shareable items or what Mad Fox Executive chef Travis Weiss affectionately calls “communal grub.” “This is a social environment,” Weiss says. “Plates are meant to be passed around, shared and enjoyed together.” The new menu also includes a sandwich tribute to the neighborhood called The Glover Park with grilled pork belly, green tomato jam, fried egg, basil and smoked garlic aioli. Also on tap, a rotating trio of chef plates available in surf, turf and vegetarian options. And good news, burger lovers: Mad Fox’s famous “Epic Burgers” will be served at Glover Park every Wednesday, just like in F.C.

Chef Brandon Moser will lead the new kitchen while Weiss will oversee both restaurants.
