The Washington Business Journal reports details on Joe Englert's latest venture that combines beer, coffee, and bouldering...and is next to Mt. Olivet Cemetery. The property is at 1240 Mt. Olivet Road and is the former home of Strauss Photo Technical Service. This is on the Ivy City side of Mt. Olivet Road (pretty much across the street from Kovak's). A beer garden at this location is sure to draw the attention of ANC 5D Commissioners, but please note that it is actually located in ANC 5C04 (Jackie Manning's SMD). Proximity alone will almost certainly mean we'll soon see Joe Englert (or someone else from the venture) presenting in front of ANC 5D.
