New Challenger for Best Beer Joint In Ballston

Arlington beer lovers rejoice. Rustico, the suds-centric eatery on Slaters Lane in Alexandria, is coming to Ballston this summer.

The new Rustico is currently under construction on the ground floor of the Liberty Center Two building (4075 Wilson Blvd) near Ballston Common Mall. We’re told the owners are hoping to open in early July.

Rustico Ballston will have as many as 40 beers on draft, according to the YFGF beer blog. According to a Rustico employee we spoke to, it will also have a “huge” two-sided sidewalk patio, featuring more outdoor seating than the Alexandria location. See the photos below to get an idea of where the sidewalk seats will go.

We’re thinking Rustico will give Ballston’s existing beer bars (nearby Rock Bottom comes to mind) a major run for their money, especially on good weather days.
