A solid spot for a beer and appeared to be pretty calm and down to earth for 6pm on a Friday. An OK taplist but nothing that really jumped out on my visit, although I didnít check both bars this time. Friendly and efficient bartender. 4oz pours available.

When I visited: Late September 2014. What I had: Elysian Savant IPA, Perennial The Last Word, and Oakshire OíDark:30 Cascadian Dark Ale on tap, can of Sun King Wee Mac Scottish Ale, draft sample of BrewDog & Oskar Blues Shipwrecker Circus, Bratwurst Platter to eat, some white wines and an entrťe for my fiancť. What I liked: Funky gastropub vibe, lively but not too loud, fast and engaging service from the Main Floor bartender, who was quite chatty and happy to provide samples, tasty and affordable food, I enjoyed most of my beers and my partner really liked her wine, we would come here often if we lived in the area. What I disliked: Wish I hadíve known that the Tap Room has a much better draft selection than the Main Floor and Party Room *before* we visited (since we wouldíve relocated), but thatís a minor quibble. Would I go back? Absolutely. Overall Rating: 86

Probably one of my favorite places in D.C. This has a cool atmosphere which lacks the pretense of some of the other D.C. beer locations and even others on the same street. Has a continually growing tap last it seems, now with something well over 30. Good burgers on Thursday night burger night for $5 - great deal. Try Chimay cheese. Only annoying thing is you have to choose between upstairs and downstairs, which have different tap lists. On a slow night the upstairs bartenders will go down and get stuff from downstairs for you though. Great service. My style of bar.

Solid three floor beer bar in Adams Morgan. The few times Iíve been only two floors have been open. Solid beer list, donít know if you can order different beer between the main and bottom floors but itís not too bad if itís not busy and you donít mind moving floors. Some uncommon and rare beers every now and then. Main floor bar can be cramped when it gets busier, not a whole lot of room with the stools and servers/food runners moving back and forth. Had the poutine and one of their burgers, both tasty though I think the burger made me sick so Iíve stuck to the beer list since.

I didnít have food here, but there beer selection was really nice. One of the longest bars Iíve ever seen. Gets really hip at night, but its a fun spot in Adams Morgan.

I only visited the upstairs bar. Really anonymous ambiance. The crowd seemed pretty typical for the Adams Morgan area. Beers on tap numbered about 20. Decent selection, but nothing was available that you canít buy elsewhere. I had a Nugget Nectar and found it to be in decent condition. The bartender was a bit of a cow. She wasnít in a great mood and was lazily underfilling every beer she poured. Her attitude miraculously improved as she was preparing my bill. The value was in line with other places in DC (itís expensive). Overall, I have no desire to return.

Visited on a Monday night to watch football while in town for work and I was the only customer on a slow night. The bartender was really friendly and seemed knowledgeable. I found this place by using this website and some of the other reviews seem a little harsh. Was reasonably priced and I would definitely go back. They had a better selection then I expected and I think it would be fun to see this place on a busy night.
