I try to stop by this place every time I am visiting my parents in the DC area. This place has fantastic brews. They have beers that I had only read about.

Parking is pretty great for DC - they had tons around the back. When you walk in the back entrance, you can see a pretty huge cooler and shelf upon shelf of quality brews. The selection is really phenomenal - they had tons of regional East Coast brews, really great Belgians, and a bunch of non-regional stuff, all of superior quality and many are extremely rare.

The prices were decent - you get what you pay for. They weren't too far off from what I pay for comparable brews in this area. It wasn't too extravagant, but you will find that you will pay more than you originally intended, just because of the great beer that you throw in cart adds up pretty quickly.

The service is kinda crappy. But the guys who weren't in charge were great. They really tried to help me out when I had questions. The guy who was in charge that day was a prick. He was condescending when I asked questions, and he didn't seen that interested in helping customers. There was a customer in front of me in the checkout line that was about to buy $500 dollars worth of wine and champagne, but didn't like the attitude of the guy in charge - they exchanged some heated words and only bought half as much as he would have. The guy (I can only assume that he was the manager) didn't seem interested in helping me, until he saw the amount of beer I was buying, then he changed his attitude - slightly.

If you are in the area, you should stop by this store - it is awesome. They have amazing beers and lots of them. Just don't expect friendly service.

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.
