Small liquor store between Dupont and Logan Circle. Decent selection of beer bombers and packs. Imagine it could get cramped with more people in the store, pretty small aisles to walk through. Felt a bit warm by the beer bombers so I donít know how it would fare for some of the beers sitting around for awhile.

An average liquor store with a slightly better than average selection of beers. Lots of the local favorites though no mix and match.

Small little place with a decent selection of specialty beers. They had what i was looking for in both liqour and beer, which was a nice surprise.

Small place with beer scattered in different locations - donít forget to look up. Solid selection of local and regional stuff included Port City and DC Brau when I stopped by. Prices were better than most in the area. Worth a stop.

SamGamgee  (182) down the whirlpool, California | February 22, 2009
Pretty good selection of American beer and British, with a modest Belgian, German and random worldly selection. Everything gets sold as singles if you want, but are usually rounded up a dollar from the six or four-pack price. Prices seem pretty standard for the area, and I havenít seen any good sales in the last month and a half of normal check-ins. THe selection is overall a bit weaker than the Whole Foods a couple blocks away, but the singles advantage and a few beers that Whole Foods doesnít have do make Cairo somewhat attractive. Very cramped inside, and a bit random with the layout, but itís small enough that you probably wonít miss anything. I thought that they would be prohibited from selling singles due to the new city ordinance, but either they donít care or got out of it. Worth a stop if you are in the neighborhood, but Chevy Chase has this one beat pretty good.

I wish I could give higher marks to what was my go-to joint when I lived on 17th and P. But itís basically just a solid neighborhood store where you can pick up a WaPo, some scratch tickets, and oh yeah, some Stone, Southern Tier, and a decent assortment of Belgians. Nostalgia stil clouds my judgment.

Thereís a reasonable selection here, which is disastrously organized. Seems to reliably have seasonal selections of most available east coast microbrewers, though not all are represented (only one bottle of Weyerbacher, no Southern Tier, etc.). All bottles available as singles. Belgian supply is a bit random (Westmalle Tripel, but no dubbel;Chimay Bleu but no blanche or rouge). Its one huge advantage is its accessibility to the metro. Quality service. Otherwise, Chevy Chase in a landside.

The outside is your normal DC liquor store but the real suprise awaits inside! The selection of beer is awesome. They sell singles and the service is very good. The owner was very helpful with my order. Great location! Fine selection of wine. I will visit again.

Looks like your typical urban liquor store from the outside and the first few steps in. Beer section is tucked into the back and cramped. Selection is good for a neighborhood liquor store with a nice selection of American micros and European labels. Very pricey compared to others. A bottle of Rogue Imperial Stout ran me $13.99 and Belhaven Wee Heavy was $4.79. Still worth a look if youíre in town and walking distance from many DC points.

Just one block over from where I stayed for RBSG. Doesnít look like much from the outside, but the selection is really good - and they sell singles out of six-packs, which is nice for the traveller. Though only the owner knew this, the employees seemed a bit confused.
