Ah - Chevy Chase, the place i head to when I need a quick Bell's fix. The selection here is pretty darned good. I've spent a ton of time browsing their collection and have always been pleasantly surprised with what I've found. The stuff in here is mostly fresh, though i've spied a couple of year-old bottles of DFH Aprihop. As far as Belgians go, this place is one of the best in the area. Excellent selection here.

The single biggest plus is the fact that you can buy everything in singles.

CCWS is pricey and when you add the 10% DC sales tax, you can end up spending about 15% more than you would at, say, Norm's. However, i don't mind biting the bullet every once in a while because of their excellent singles selection

Larry, the beer manager, is great. Very helpful and an interesting person to talk to

Very friendly staff, clean and organized store. Decent selection though most beers are sold as singles. Prices are typical for DC. Will definitely go back if in the area.
Note : if making a special trip for something seen on their website call first to check availability.

I stopped in based on a BA search while visiting a friend in the area.

Feel is like a typical old school liquor store. Nothing special in the decor or presentation. But they clearly put a lot of work into it with each bottle individually labeled. The only down side to that is that it blocks your view of the bottle itself. They have a good selection of Belgian, British and German beers with the US supply leaning heavily to northeast breweries.

A nice local shop with a good commitment to craft beer.

Like everyone, I'd heard great things about CCW&S, but it didn't quite live up to my expectations. It's a bit cramped and the layout of the place (i.e. all singles with some broken sixers in the cooler) is a bit hard to navigate. The selection is very good, though, which is truly the main thing. They had a ton of Black Ops and a decent amount of BCBS (albeit for a limited time). The staff isnt particularly knowledgeable, with the exception of their "head beer guy", but if you've got a decent beer brain, you'll find your way around. The one big drawback is the price, though around DC, it doesn't get much cheaper, so you may as well avail yourself of the selection. It's not my favorite place around DC, but for Goose Island, Great Lakes and some of the smaller, northern breweries, Chevy Chase is necessary. It's definitely in my rotation around the area.
