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 didn’t 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.

Another favorite haunt just on the edge of the old neighborhood. Many fond memories over the years of stopping in for a Tuppers Hop Pocket or Wild Goose, something along those lines. Black paint lining the walls, nice old red leather booths, usually a pretty decent music selection too. Food has always been pretty average, but there’s plenty of places for a nosh around goodness knows. Always been a mix of bike messengers, Dischord folk, 9 to 5ers. And oh yes, aside from the pleasant atmosphere, the beer selection has been consistently solid in all the years I’ve been popping in.

True, it is a dive bar but they have one of best selections in DC and always a chill atmosphere.

Dive bar, usually jam packed with locals. Friendly and helpful staff. OK food. Interesting stuff on tap from time to time, but you hafta like crowds. Hint: you CAN escape from the back door in the far room, even though it looks like it’s blocked or alarmed. Just in case you think it might take you an hour to reach the front door.

I love this place, because I get left alone and get to drink good beer. Food mostly sucks, but the new tacos are pretty decent. Place looks like crap, but they have great beer, at good prices, good variety, and it’s not overpacked.

This is a solid, comfortable dive bar! Love it! It made me feel at home while in DC. Reminded me a little of The Dive Bar in Worcester MA.

Big Hunt...well Big Hunt is a very cool place and has some sort of love affair with Founders. I’m serious. The owners of Founders Brewing love Big Hunt and vice-versa. They have Founders events here all the time and expect KBS and even CBS to be on tap here occasionally (though Pizzeria Paradiso also gets these from time to time). Big Hunt is a crazy dive bar on Thurs-Sat nights but is much tamer (if you can believe it) than bars in the area such as Mad Hatter, which is a riotous shit storm that I would avoid at all costs. Big Hunt has some decent food that was pretty decent but unremarkable. The bar is actually split between two rooms. One is your normal dive bar and the other is made to look like you are inside the belly of a whale. Yes. A small tap list here is not a bad thing since there will probably something that catches your eye. I know there is a bottle list...but I’ve never gotten something off of it. Stick to the taps and soak up the atmosphere, which is a local crowded dive bar. Most people there are not beer nerds. Big Hunt has the fortune of being a regular DC going out bar that happens to have a serious craft beer selection.
