I've been going to Chevy Chase for about nine years and have always been impressed with their beer selection, which encompasses difficult to find and eclectic foreign labels as well as small production domestic craft brews. And they make a point of getting anything they don't have. The store itself has three different areas where beer is stored, and it's not necessarily clear where to look if you have something specific in mind. To that end, the best way to browse their selection is sometimes online. Then go there and ask where it is. The store occasionally offers beer tastings on Fridays and Saturdays, although the selection is usually at the discretion of the distributor rather than management. It would be nice if they did some focused/educational beer tastings.

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.
