Great selection, fairly well-organized. Not all staff are knowledgeable about the beer, but the beer guy knows his stuff. Park or taxi. Should be your first stop for beers in DC.

Good store but sometimes cold service. Selection is high quality, bottles are put on shelves and in coolers seemingly at random, but overall you can find some really nice things at this store. I live within walking distance and visit about twice per week, and Iíve got to be honest, sometimes the service from this one person is bad. The rest are great. I think this guy is the manager, the younger guy, and every time I go in heís so cold. One time he just stood at the front of the store not talking to or helping anyone, and I had to actually help a customer try to find a beer similar to Urthel. The guy seems like he takes a lot of pride in his store, but maybe too much - maybe he feels beer is only his thing? One time in the cooler I saw a 6-pack holder with only two bottles of beer in it, and this was the 6-pack shelf, not the singles shelf. So I took the two bottles out and started filling up the holder with singles of other stuff, the guy jumps on me about needing his 6-pack holder back. What exactly was he going to do with a 1/3 full six pack? The other thing that bugs me is they want you to use their little shopping carts, like the ones you carry at the grocery store. So you guys want me to put 6-10 bottles into a cart and have them all clang around and fall over? Have you thought this out??? Other than that - good store.

The selection here is a little better than Rodmanís (which has the advantage of being cheaper and metro accessible). The atmosphere here reminds me of a haunted house and the staff could be fill-ins for the ride as well. Prices are stupid expensive and make no sense. Itís sort of a creepy place to visit. I hate going here and have gone about three to four times and have never bought anything. Mostly because they donít have anything worth buying (6 month old DIPAs anyone? $30 DuClaw Colossus?) Donít waste your time jaunting over to this place which is not metro accessible. Donít believe the website, which says itís like in the Top 10 of ____. Lie.

Nondescript looking place. Kind of a shotgun layout. Lots of wine, liquor and beer. Lots of foreign and American selections, with some rarities. Prices are OK, and the staff was very nice. Nice decor with a cool bottle selection. Very nice stop.

While the beers seemed to be compacted into a small area the entire store is a bit small so itís still a sizable offering. The guy behind the counter was quite knowledgeable and happy to chat about beers and such. Prices seemed reasonable to rather good - picked up a few bottles for less than I get them for at cost back home. Canít argue with that.

From the outside. This does not look like a store I would walk into off of the street. The area is busy, but there is free parking in the back. The inside is the textbook example of an old mom and pop wine store. Narrow with old weathered wooden floors. There are tons of empty old, dusty beer bottles on the high shelves. They are short on space, so you need to look in every nook and cranny. Tons of shelftags so that you know how much the beers cost. Nice selection of domestics, european, and belgian beers. I walked out a very happy man with some Russian River. Prices are a tad high, but not rediculous. Maybe 10% higher than Whole Foods in Vienna. But if I donít have to cross the Wilson Bridge, its worth it.

Visited here in April of 2004. It is not close to a metro stop as some have suggested! It is a good mile or so walk from the Friendship Heights Metro stop - and thatís a long way in the rain! Anyway, a great selection of bottles and all are available in singles and catergorized by country if I remember correctly. Even have a &quo;bargain&quo; bin with a few bottles available for less than $2.00. A must stop if in the D.C. area.

Lots of beer but randomly sorted. Found some god stuff from all over the nation and plenty of stuff Iíd never seen before. About half of it is kept cold, which is nice. The most expensive of the stores Iíve been to since getting to the Baltimore/DC area, though. I would go back for the hard to find stuff, but the prices would keep me away from being a regular.

Definitely a must-visit if youíre in from out of town as they have a lot of local/regional beers you canít get elsewhere. Itís a little bit out of the way and there arenít any Metro stations that are very close. If you donít have a car, you will probably have to hail a cab, as I did, after shopping. They offer lots of singles and have a fairly large selection of 750ml and 22oz bottles to choose from.

One of the two best package stores in the area -- lots of good micros, including a goodly amount of seasonals, but more focused on having beers from all over the world, including the less obvious places. One drawback is that the stock stays until it's gone -- I've had a number of times when they've brought me a beer from the back with a "best by" date at least one year earlier.
