Located on Conn Ave across the street from the Woodley Park metro stop. This place is pretty good; they look a little cheesy from the outside, especially with their scrolling lighted signs, but they are actually pretty quality.

Inside it's basically a long narrow hallway packed with stuff. there is a fantastic whiskey selection, and some really esoteric wine options for those who are interested. The beer takes up the back quarter of the store. It's mostly in the fridge, but there are some singles and bombers to be obtained warm. Be prepared to scoot around other people, as there is about 2 feet of room between shelves.

The selection is good, but not great. They have a solid selection of the major crafts available to the area, and even some that are a bit hard to find. I will say that my main complaint is that they don't rotate stock. I saw a couple of four packs of Founders Double Trouble from last year. If you want something that doesn't have a born on date, you are taking your chances. Bomber selection is pretty good for the space, as well.

The staff is super friendly and really helpful. There are only two guys, and they both know everything. They seem to actually enjoy their jobs and like talking shop to people. Pricing is about average for DC, so a good bit more expensive than Virginia.

2/25/15 Update - sad to say that both service and selection has been in decline, not to mention that they have started gouging more on limited releases. The old proprietors of the beer dept appear to be gone.
