A very cool place to visit in DC. They have a very good draft list and bottle list. And they'll let you try samples.

The food was phenomenal and well prepared. For the place, the food was excellent. They source alot of items locally and seasonally and the burgers are what stand out.

The beers are great. They have several local and regional selections you would not otherwise be able to get your hands on.

Definitely a place to visit when out for a stroll in DC.

I've been to The Black Squirrel many times. They've always got interesting beers to try (depending on which level of the building you're in), and the burgers are outstanding. It's never really crowded, though it can get a little busy late on weekend nights.

The trick with The Black Squirrel, though, is checking their website before you decide to go. Because every so often, it seems, there's a perfect storm of fantastic, whale-ish beers that appear simultaneously on tap. For example, the last time I went there, I had GL Blackout stout, Parabola, Bourbon County, Cigar City barleywine, Tactical Nuclear Penguin (bottled), and Utopias (also bottled, obviously). And then some absinthe, of which they have many kinds. I left very drunk, but very happy.

If you go without having an idea what's there, you may be a bit disappointed (though honestly, the burgers are really outstanding). But if you look ahead on their website and notice something interesting on tap, you may be pleasantly surprised when you get there.
