I have been her on a few occasions on trips out to MD. The place is mostly a liquor and wine store, but beer gets quite a bit of cooler space here. The selection is mostly in singles, and you have to ask for a 6-pack or a case if you want one. There a quite a few bombers and 750's. Some of the breweries that come to mind are St. Bernardus, some Bells, Arcadia, Green Flash, Weyerbacher, Victory, Brooklyn, Avery, Rogue, Dogfish Head, Smuttynose, Troegs, Lagunitas, etc... The thing that caught my eye the most was an old empty bomber of Oberon they had on a shelf. The employees seemed to be bothered with people questions and were very slow in checking me out (I had 3 singles). I just felt like I was bothering them and like me giving them business was not worth their while (maybe because I look young...?). Needless to say, the parking sucks, the selection is some of the better in the area, and the employees seem like they have something better to be doing (I couldn't say what). Anyway, it's definitely worth visiting, but I don't know what the employees of a "fine" liquor store could possibly be annoyed by.

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.
