Capital Wheel Lunch


Finally made it to the Capital Wheel at the National Harbor, MD recently.

Went on a cold day, which meant the line was non-existent.  Great views all around.  After the ride, checked out a restaurant in the area, Granite City.

They brew their own beer so opted for a sampler.  The four brews on the taster were The Prairie Vixen, The Northern, the Cran Gose and the Smith & Forge.

The Prairie was a Hef with mild banana and clove, bubble gum, hints of citrus and mild spiciness.  It was not that exciting and actually way too banana-y for me. The Northern was an American Lager that was mild, crisp and had mild bitterness.  Very good, a true Lager. The Cran Gose  tasted like toothpaste to me.  The Smith & Forge was solid.

The menu was a normal brewery menu and based on the location, quite expensive.  They had a traditional MD crab soup so I opted for that and a salad.  My friend went for a bowl of chili and caesar.

Once we finally got the food…it was fine.  It took nearly 45 minutes to get the stuff, and you can tell all it really takes it a couple ladles and putting lettuce on a plate.  Nothing that exciting and there are many other places at National Harbor I’d rather check out.
