Valor Brewpub is a Veteran-inspired bar, restaurant and brewery. Located just across the street from Washington’s 8th and I Street Marine Barracks on Barracks Row, Valor makes it a point to employ Veterans, use Veteran-owned products and support Veteran causes, donating 10% each time a Veteran organization or non-profit hosts an event there.
