Outstanding wine and beer bar in the Lafayette Square neighborhood. Quite a modern look to it, and quite a hip crowd on a Saturday night. If you intend to have a conversation, try a less busy time, or the patio out back. As I've visited more, I've really settled in here, and find it a wonderfully relaxing, convivial place. Completely non-smoking which was a big plus in my book. Food is an increasingly interesting selection of cheeses, crackers and cured meats.
Closed Sunday and Monday.

Beer is available for both on-premises consumption and take-away. The take-away prices are very fair, and the drink-in prices reasonable as well, though the mark-ups on wine are even more reasonable. Beer has become a co-primary focus with wine over the years, and the owner, Jake, is quite passionate about beer. Jake has recently turned the reigns of the beer selection over to Dylan, who is an excellent homebrewer, and very much a beer guy.

The beer list has grown to about 100 selections, versus several hundred wine selections, but there is not a dud on the list, and the selection rotates. Plenty of Belgians, Bell's, British, and German, with a focus on frequent rotation with the seasons. All beer kept in dark, temperature-controlled storage so it's condition is impeccable. In addition, 33 now sports 6 taps, which rotate frequently through a selection of really interesting craft selections, and B.United and Shelton imports.

Lots of folks drink beer here, and Jake and his staff are as happy to pontificate on a $4 bottle of beer as they are on a $40 bottle of wine. Definitely a place that recognizes that taking care of customers with personal, thoughtful service is a key to long-term success. My highest recommendation.

2 sommeliers work here including the owner

James was very knowledgable and very engaged with us as it was not very crowded.
We ordered plenty of wine and got to pour some rare beers.
