One of my favorite places to hit up in the city since it's so close to Churchkey. It's always easy to swing by and get a bottle or two on the way to or from the bar.
Atmosphere isn't much to speak of. There's an aisle to the left when you walk into the store. Sometimes there'll be a few cases of things further into the deli section, like when they got New Belgium in. Service is good in terms of them answering whether they have things in, etc, though I've never really asked more-detailed questions than that.
Selection is a good sampling of pretty much all the breweries -- at least in terms of six-packs -- that are distributed here. Plenty of larger-format bottles as well. One irritating thing is that they're the only place to tape together two individual small bottles, e.g. Rochefort and Orval. I think this has to do with some D.C. regulation on size of to-go sales, but no one else seems to observe it.
Overall, a good spot in a nice location, though nothing mind-blowing. Worth a stop if you're looking for bottles and are heading to Churchkey anyhow.

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.
