Located in the vibrant Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, D.C., The Sovereign will feature 50 drafts and more than 200 bottles meticulously curated by Beer Director Greg Engert. From Trappist Monastic producers whose brewing history dates back hundreds of years to an up-and-coming new generation of Belgian brewers, as well as international and domestic producers of exceptional Belgian-style ales, The Sovereign will offer an expansive breadth of selections that illuminate the flavor-driven, craft-brewed complexity that is the trademark of the best Belgian beers.

Just as The Sovereign will champion brewers who use simple, true recipes and let technique and patience yield complex flavors, so too will our culinary team. Executive Chef Peter Smith will focus on rustic, ingredient-driven Belgian dishes, while also drawing on French, German and Dutch cooking traditions. Dutch-style mussels, braises and stews such as Lapin a la Kriek (Rabbit braised in Cherry Beer), Flammkuchen and Tartes Flambé and other classic regional dishes will serve as the core of Smith’s seasonally changing menu.
