Mango Island Brewery

Originally when we opened we were going to brew our own beer, but as in a lot of good intentions, it never happened. Luckily we know some guys who are opening a brew pub and they can put this never used equipment to work. Look for their operation, xxxx in DC early Spring.

No easy task as the equipment being stainless steel is very heavy and we literally built part of Mango Mike's around the equipment. We had to remove door frames and a complete window assembly to remove the brew stuff from the buildind.

Congratulations Craig & Erica

Craig Mark and Erica Arturi happened to meet at Mango Mike's Alexandria over 3 years ago. Thursday, Craig contacted us to let us know he needed our help. He was planning to propose to Erica on Friday at our bar, the same place they first meet. At 8PM sharp Craig and Erica showed up grabbed a few cocktails, at the same bar stools as three years ago, and five minutes later Craig was on one knee... she said yes.
