Obviously not the beer stockist it was, the selection was reasonable but nothing great. Some nice rarities hidden between some 75cl bottles and Belgian beers. Not many rarities (I did get Maine Beer Zoe and Founders Devil Racer TIPA) and not wide selection. However, if wine and liquor are your thing then you've come to the right place!

Dragged my girlfriend all the way across the city to this place with the promise that they would have a good selection of rare beers and stuff I cant find around the area.
I was extremely let down. They didn't have ANY Founder's or Bell's. Nothing that interesting there and no traces of any of the other rare beers that have been mentioned in other reviews.
Good for a quick six pack of beer if you're in the neighborhood, but overall, a waste of time.

I stopped by the store on a day off today to see what was available. They didn't have all of the brands mentioned in earlier reviews of the shop (no RR, cigar city, floyds) but I still call what they had 5/5. Long gone from other stores Evil Twin, bunch of Surly, awesome Oude/ Gueze selection. Of the stuff they had that I 'know the going rate for' for available Bruery, Firestone, etc I thought their prices were more than fair.
It was a weds morning so I didn't get (or request) much by way of service, as they was only a security type guy and the cashier but both friendly and helpful.
I'd say they wine selection appeared great if you're a >$50 a bottle type shopper. Not many places put $80 Burgundies on 50% off closeout but I guess space is tight. Also one of the more extensive vintage champagne selections I've seen.
I'll definitely make this place one of my stops in DC especially if I'm hitting the P St WFM, as a nice parking spot is appropriate for both. Fun old city neighborhood (at least during the day) with old book stores etc taboot.
