Interesting setup with a bar/cafe at the back of a bookshop. I propped up at the bar for a pint during happy hour. Easy transaction of a beer for exchange of cash with a friendly bartender. Chilled location. They serve snacks and plates of tacos, wings, lamb shank etc. Good vibes and convenient for a quick pint of beer.

Nice little restaurant in the back of the bookstore. Sat in the dining area which was pretty small. Service was okay, a bit slow even though it wasnít busy. Food was good but pricy for what you get. Beer prices were a bit pricy too. Better craft beer options in the area but a decent spot after some book browsing.

Nice place to grab a pint of craft while perusing a cool bookstore. Prices are fairly reasonable, and I caught them during the shutdown happy hour phase. Service was fine, didnít eat but food looked OK. Not a big beer destination, but worth a stop if youíre in the neighborhood.

In the back of the bookstore. Immediately next for to Connecticut street liquors. No real ambiance to speak of, but hey, beer in a bookstore! Decent taplist, good prices for lunch

Connected to Kramer Books in the middle of Dupont Circle. Nice greenhouse seating in the back with patio/outdoor seating in summer. Tables are small, seating is cramped. Food is on the expensive side for bistro fare. Quite the eclectic menu with some delicious stuff. Beer list is modest with a handful of bottles/cans and a pretty decent tap list with local beer options. But I canít really recommend this versus Paradiso or Scion which are walking distance. Selection included DC Brau, Chocolate City, Troegs, Founders, Victory, Brooklyn, Great Lakes, North Coast, Flying Dog. Pretty impressive. Glasses are $7-$8 for beer, a little pricey. Food was pricey.

Right off the north end of the Dupont metro, and right next to Connecticut Ave. Wine and Liquor. 15 or so taps, with things like Founderís Backwoods Bastard (which had just kicked when I got there; blast!) Really cool ambiance, with a local bookstore combined with a restaurant, coffeeshop, and bar. A fun place to spend an hour or two.

Been going to Kramerís more or less my whole life, and Iíve always had a fondness for the back spot as a brunch destination. But the sidecar bar is a winner as well, and itís nice to pore over your purchase if you can find a spot in the small narrow bar. Tap selection isnít hugely plentiful but thereís always solid to excellent stuff available, including great stuff from Brooklyn, Bells, and more.

Interesting place. Itís a bookstore and a bar. Itís a bar and a restaurant. Itís a hangout. OK, Iím not sure what it is. But I do know they had a dozen or so taps, and the 3 Stars brewers were there to promote their brand new beers, including a new collaboration with Olivers. because of this, the place was packed, and had a really good vibe. Beer geeks plus book geeks, what a combo! Worth trying.

A funky bookstore with this nice little bar and decent sized restaurant in the back. Food seems bistro meets BBQ joint, decent prizs, about 15 taps of decent beers, good service....opened 24 hours a day.

Where else can you find such good beer in a bookstore? A good selection, not mind blowing, but respectable. Reasonable prices for the area. Staff are knowledgeable.
