This is a solid beer store, and great since you can get some great food and then be able to look at great beer.

This place is very consistent in providing ample amounts of beers you'd expect in DC and then also throwing in some seasonal stuff, etc. but I don't think they ever have too much stuff that is really rare or remarkable. Heres the breweries for which they have at least a moderate selection of:

Great Lakes, Founders, Hoppin Frog, Goose Island, Victory, Sierra Nevada, DFH, Lagunitas, Green Flash, Duck Rabbit, Stone, Brooklyn, Great Divide, Bells, Oskar Blues, 21st Amendment, Heavy Seas, Ommegang, Avery, Troegs, Weyerbacher, Allagash, Rochefort, Unibroue, The Bruery, etc.

If you go in looking for staple beers from companies like that, you will probably find it. If you go in looking for really limited release stuff, you may be dissapointed but also may find it. Maybe I'm not hip to their beer guy and they keep things in the back, but from what I've seen there isn't that oh wow factor that happens at some smaller but thicker stores in this area.

Speaking of beer guys, I haven't met one if there is one here, which is somewhat dissapointing as I've surely been and studied the selection enough times that I should have met him/her by now. Oh well. Overall a solid place, but go beer shopping at other places I've reviewed before coming here for that purpose alone.

The growler bar is ok. The best part is that you can shop while drinking the drink from the bar! The beer selection is great. One of the best around--in part because I think Churchkey is so close. Randy is great at getting the rare beers. You have to follow twitter and get there early for the good stuff before it's gone.

This is a super market which is important to consider because I am reviewing the bar selection only. Went in to get my growler filled. Apparently they shut down the taps at 9 pm. Very unfortunate considering they close doors at 10:30.

Staff was friendly and courteous but informed me I would have to come back at noon tomorrow. The selection was very unique and summery, notably Evolution Summer Session, and I was hoping to get the delicious Ommegang Fleur de Houblon. They bar is tiny and could seat many 5 with their coffee or growlers. I will go back because $10 for a 32oz isn't amazing but some of the beers are hard to find and would be more than $5 for a 12oz anyways in other parts of DC, so its worth a shot on a few of them. It appeared these beers had been on draft for 6 days and the bartender didn't seem to think they were going to be changed tomorrow (Friday) as someone else reviewing this location indicated.
