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.

Pretty convenient to convention center and associated hotels. Nice selection of local craft, larger regionals and imports. decent prices as well, but didnt get much help form the staff.

Great selection, excellent prices, and when Randy is around you'll get the finest service you can ask for. Getting through to him is the problem. Now that I live in MD I rarely get a chance to visit but when I do it's well worth it.

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.
