Iíd never been here before, passing it often on my way between Adams Morgan and Dupont. Finally stopped in during SAVOR week. The downstairs bar looks spacious, with very nice decor. The Upstairs is a semi-open air bar during nice weather. Nice tap lineup and good bourbon and whiskey to boot. Tasty cocktails.
Didnít eat, but the food coming out looked real good.
Only word of warning is that youíll probably get some douchy guy in an expensive suit smoking a cigar as big as your forearm.

Solid taps, but youíd be doing a disservice to yourself if you were only here to drink beer. The downstairs areaís walls are entirely lined by bottles of whiskey. Itís pretty fun to sit at the bar and inspect all of the bottles on display as you drink. As mentioned, the beer list is pretty good. The 20ish taps had plenty of locals as well as stuff like Bourbon County Stout. The whiskey list was awesome, expansive. Staff were more than happy to make patiently make recommendations and provide samples. Overall, an absolute must-visit if youíre into the harder stuff. Even if youíre only interested in beer, itís still worth a look.

No offense to their beers, but you donít come here for the beers, you come here for the largest selection of whiskey in the western hemisphere).
That is the end of the rating as far as any serious drinker should be concerned.
But Iíll give it an actual rating because Iíve lived within walking distance for years now and have been dozens of times (always focusing on the whiskey and bourbons like you should!), although Iíve never eaten more than bar snacks here so Iíll not rate on that.
It can get WAY too crowded. It can also get quite douchey or bro-y. But on a weekday, a colder day etc. the bar is great. Ambiance is a tough one here. Douchey get minus points, crowded gets minuw points, but asthetics, rooftop patio, decor, changing the priorities of the street all get major pluses in ambiance. So I have to give it a 4 for all of those pluses.
Service score drops because of how crowded it gets.

So I have very mixed feelings about this bar. The first floor is an incredible whisky bar, and if I was into that scene, I would salivate each time I am within a mile of this place. The beer selection is well-chosen and quite respectable. I managed to find a number of beers I have never had before, so I am happy. The downstairs is pleasant and chill. The upstairs is like every other garbage bar in DC. It is horribly loud, with the most obnoxious pop music you can imagine. I didnít mind the smokiness, but that would irk some. Unfortunately, I started my experience on the top floor and my experience at this bar became sullied. If this bar just had the chill downstairs, I would rate it higher.

This place is more famous for its whiskey and wine list than for it beer list. That said, the beers they do have are usually exceptional. This is a must-see bar in DC. Great food, great drinks. Expensive, but becomes reasonable during happy hours.

Stopped in at 5pm for a rare beer event. Exceptional draft list on this visit. Not much in bottles and cans. Nice modernistic ambiance. Friendly and knowledgable staff. Full pours only but half price between 5 and 6.

Jack Rose has a solid draft list of beers you donít see all the time. Good service, good selection of liquors. Didnít have the food. Pricing is not great.

I can only opine previous comments which allude to a Scotch Library. I must have been the twentieth little bastard who asked the bartended how many they had on that Sunday evening, but he still replied courteously they had 800 single malts and 500 other whiskeys, bragging this was the largest selection in the Western Hemisphere. If I recall my geography correctly, this includes Scotland and I suppose that makes it impressive. Being surrounded by such riches can only make for a more than decent atmosphere albeit we found it rather loud despite the place being half empty. Oh, youíre here for the beer? Perhaps you should not have come, but still, you will find ten draught offerings or so of good quality, locals taking half the board. We have not eaten, but the menu seemed to have quite a few attractive options.
