Birreria Paradiso is actually the downstairs section of Pizzeria Paradiso's Georgetown location. The restaurant is located in an area with lots of high price shops in a nice neighborhood in D.C. My recommended path (if taking the subway) is to get off at the orange line Foggy Bottom-GWU stop, take a left, go around the rotary to Pennsylvania Ave then walk to M street, and continue until you find BP on the left.

The downstairs bar is a very cozy area (I'm stealing that from several reviews, but it fits perfectly) with a small bar area that seats 10-12 people. There is seating in the same area, along with stacks of wood, but not for the fire (it's gas). Next to the fireplace are some comfy lounge chairs. If you can grab these then you're in the best spot. Beer swag covers the walls.

There is a good selection of draft beer, ranging from lighter drinkable beers to heavy stouts and DIPAs. Each draft beer is described on a sheet, along with a little booklet of beers available from a bottle. The beers are a bit pricey, mostly from the area that they are located in (D.C.), but there appears to be a slight mark-up.

There staff is knowledgeable, some more than others. Usually the bartender will know exactly what to get you, while some may not be as familiar with the selection. Either way, it's good service.

All in all, a great place to visit. Best beer place in Georgetown, one of the top places in D.C. It's certainly my favorite place to go in D.C./NoVA. It may not have the most taps in D.C., but it certainly has the best atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Pizza here is good, but not as good as some other places in DC, see 2 Amys. That said the beer selection is always very well curated which makes up for lack of size compared to places like Churchkey. Especially good is the half price happy hour on weekdays. 5$ lambickx? Yes please. 3.50$ Mean Old Tom, why thank you! And the list goes on...
