Been a few times, nice dive bar. I enjoy the ambiance even though Iíve never been in while itís busy. Have only sat at the bar on the main floor. Small-ish bar with some TVs and tables around. Jukebox by the bar for music. Pretty nice tap list, mostly local and stuff from around the states. Havenít tried the food other than some Jerkface jerky that the beer director makes, pretty good jerky. Nice spot around Dupont for some craft beer.

Some decent beers on tap but their sample size pours are very expensive. Better to go as a dive bar, for which the atmosphere is appropriate. My style of place and a few good drafts even make it someone decent for craft beer.

Dive bar. Very divey, very bar. Really good beer program though -- I almost always find things here that I didnít know about. The food is terrible. The volume level makes it impossible to have a conversation. But the beer list is good.

Stopped in for a bite to eat and a beer while in the area. 30 or so drafts, mostly craft selections from some of the larger breweries like Allagash, Stone, Schlafly, Oskar Blues. The cask was not working, so no go for any cask ales. Bar food was pretty good. I had a cheeseburger and fries. Dimly lit and a bit of a dive appearance. Staff was friendly and service was fine. A decent bar, but I donít feel compelled to return.

Went here on 9-5-13 to try the new Atlas Brew Works. Really enjoyed the place. Itís a dark hole in the wall. Kind of narrow. I didnít check out the patio or basement. The service was decent. Good selection of beer. Varity of microbrews and local brews. Had a half price burger and fries. Both were tasty. Nice spot.

Stopped in around 4:30 to try some special Allagash beers. Initial impression is a dive but despite the dark atmosphere (light and music), the place grew on me. The waitress was super nice. I counted 34 drafts, only about 5 of which had throw away mass market beers. The rest were an interesting mix of local beers and other US microbrews (with a token so-called Danish beer from Evil Twin. Food menu is your basic bar food. Beers not offered in smaller taster sizes, which sadly limits the amount of beers a normal person can sample.

Didnít try any food. Stopped in for a few pints on a rainy Friday afternoon. Had a cool grungy bar look, but the people were more hipster than dive. A large handful of quality beers on tap. Service was just ok, bit slow. I found the beers a bit pricey, but overall it was a solid spot.

Man I hated this place. The staff was quite pushy and the menu pretty thin. Only went here because it was across from my hotel.

Several visits in 2009. This place screams dive bar, but the beer was always cold and they always offered a decent selection for a cheap price, with something for everyone. Keep an eye out for their special events- we went to a "Sausage, Cheese, and Beer" pairing event which was reasonably priced and lots of fun. Tried to go during my last visit in 2011 around mid afternoon, was disappointed that they didnít open until 4.

Classic DC craft beer/dive bar. Located near the South Dupont Circle metro exit on Conn. ave next to Madhatter. Fairily unassuming exterior and interior is pretty divetastic. Nice copper plated bar though. Service is okay - bartenders are attentive and fast, wait staff is likely to forget your order or get it wrong and complain if you sit at a table with a beer already in your hand. Selection is usually good - focus is usually more local stuff but occasionally they get in some real gems (CBS, KBS, local one-offs). Prices are about average for DC. Food is perfectly average for a bar. Jam packed on weekends but a very chill happy hour spot.
