Went here while in DC on a business trip. Bottle selection was pretty good, they had some Russian River bottles and even a couple bottle of Westvleteren Blonde, but I laughed out loud once I saw their prices. They were selling 12 oz. bottles of BCBS for $20 and dogfish head Worldwide Stout for $20 also! Single bottles of Devil Dancer were as much as the 4 packs back homes. They had a few of the Goose Island "sister" bombers and they wanted $40 buck apiece. Virtually every bomber in the store was at least $8 to $20 more than I have spent elsewhere. Although pretty rare, I still think $50 for one bottle of Westvleteren Blonde is crazy. This is easily the highest price beer store that I have been to in the country. Don't waste your time!

Decided to kill five minutes in here during a walk around DuPont and was not disappointed with the selection of beer or spirits (funny enough, I bought no beer but a bottle of absinthe that I can get cheaper in Manhattan but decided what the ----). That being said, I had a "doorman" watching me at the beers and then when I walked to the liquor section I had a second guy asking me what I wanted and he will walk me to there (which he did and was nice about it so I can't really knock the service). The only thing that prevented me from splurging (OK, the one bottle of absinthe was a splurge but I live in Va Beach so I can't just somewhere close to home to find good stuff) was the price on everything. They had bottles of beer that I can't get anywhere else not only in sunlight/high temps but priced so high that sticker shock was my first reaction. I guess it's worth going at least once if you're an out of towner like me.

Nice selection of beers but that's probably due to the fact that they charge 20% or more compared to other places so you will find hard to find bottles but who knows how long they've been sitting on the shelf for. They're all about making the sale so you can't just browse around without getting hounded. If you are in a desparate need to find something like I was, then give them a try. Otherwise, I think they are just too overpriced.

I stumbled upon this store while walking through Dupont Circle. I was hoping to find a 6pk of OTWOA, but they had sold out. They still had BCBS and also had it on tap for growler fills (2012). The prices are outrageous, but the staff is very friendly and willing to help. I'd only hit this place for beer if I was in a pinch. Still enjoyed visiting and saw Russian River Supplication there crazily enough.
