This place boggles the mind with the sheer number of beers available, whether its American micro, Belgian, Czech, or English.
Any serious beer lover in the DC area must check this place out. This is the place for mind-blowing selection. It's like beer vertigo. You should go in there with a plan or alot of money; otherwise its easy to just get bewildered.

This is the only place in the DC metro area where I have found Deschutes beers (for example), which are not distributed east of the Mississippi as I understand it. The guy at this place told me they make a trip to the Northwest and bring the stuff back on their own.

On a quick junket to DC, I actually lucked out and picked this store first. Unfortunately, I wanted one of the two beers in the world that they couldn't get. But I do not fault them, and, truly, THIS PLACE IS AMAZING!!!!!!!! They have one of everything on the walls with little tags telling you all the breakdown prices. All the beer is cold stored, so you have to point and get service.

This place is part beer Mecca, part beer library--as curious things, such as a Michelob Pale Ale (which I've never seen nor heard of before) sit on the shelves next to the Rachbiers, Ales out the a**, and lagers from all corners of the world.

Interestingly enough, the store is like your typical neighborhood main-street hardware store, with an ample parking lot in back, and the venerable-old, greasy-glass-doors back entrance, which harken back to the shopping days of yore. I felt like a kid again, going to the candy store!

PS - I visited about five other stores in DC that day, and they all wound up pointing me back to Chevy Chase Liquors. This place has its props! If they don't have it, it isn't within a hundered miles of them (which I proved to myself later that week)--unless, of course, you head to the Brickskellar (west shot off DuPont), where you have to eat your beer on site.
