I go to this place pretty much every time I go back to see the old folks, holidays and what have you. Before dealing with family, it is essential to get liquored up to ease the brutality of it all. This place is right near the border of DC toward Chevy Chase. Looks pretty standard inside until you get to the beer area. At that point you realize they gots what you need. Lots of great stuff from almost all breweries that see distribution in the area. Some mixed twelvers for your family members that need a bit of easing into the whole good beer thing. The service has not been the best when Iíve gone - most employees donít seem to know much about beer - but I hear thereís at least one guy who is somewhat knowledgeable. Not that I care being the worldís foremost beer expert. This is for your edification though. Anyway, nice place for all your northwestern DC beer needs, and hey, you might even get a couple of ticks out of it.

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.

Incredible selection, at least one very knowledgeable staff member for beer (Larry, with the big white beard), and pretty high prices. I love the hole-in-the-wall feel of this place, with bottles stacked to the ceiling.

Went there today as part of my absurdly long bike ride. Contrary to what many people are saying, I found the store to be reasonably well organized with a selection that does put most other stores I have seen in this area to shame. However, as many other people have noted, things are quite expensive. Rodmanís and Whole Foods have many of the same things for a dollar or so cheaper (especially some singles). The only thing that I noticed that was cheaper than Whole Foods was Bellís Third Coast Old Ale. Also, it is clear that a lot of the stuff sits there quite a while and they donít scour over it to find the bottles that have already expired (i.e. the ones that have the writing on the label). Frankly, a place like the Whole Foods on 14th and P is probably a better bet, if you donít care which beer you get that day, but this is still a good store with a good selection. One of the guys who works there will help you with your beer. He also is able to look up in his directory to tell you how long the beer has been sitting on the shelf, which is pretty cool.

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.

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.

Nice store, good selection of singles. A little on the small side, and I wasnít particularly impressed with the service, but the selection is pretty solid. A touch hard to navigate, as stuff isnít very well organized. Prices all over the map from great to crappy, better then Rockville prices though...

Visited on 2/3/2010 with Ben4321. Store is small, tucked away next to a CVS. Good parking in back. Lots of single beers, and many things available that arenít in Maryland where I live about 20 minutes away. Beers are kind of disorganized, with singles on shelves, an open fridge, then some stuff put anywhere they have space. Iíl definitely put this place as part of my rotation of beer stores. Maybe they have a guy who knows beer, but not today on a Wednesday.

Just found this little jem today as a recommendation from a friend. The beer selection was very good and you could buy them in singles. I picked up 8 microbrews for $20 and was happy with that. I live about 5 blocks down the street and will be going here ALOT. Most of my ratings in the next six months will come from beers that i will purchase at this fine establishment.

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.
