This is the store that made me a beer nerd. Tons of different beers but often very cramped spaces. The one shaved-headed guy with the goatee seems like a jerk (I think heís the manager). The old guys are nice. One carried a case out to my car once and told me about his gambling addiction and how one guy got fired for showing up to work drunk. I used to work a couple blocks away and didnít even know this place existed.

Stopped by here with a friend. Itís always fun to go to a well-stocked shop in a different region of the country from your home turf. I was able to find some regionals that are unavailable to me up in Michigan. Tons of singles.

On my trip to DC, I was informed that this was the place to go for beer. I walked 4 miles from my hotel with a backpack in case I wanted to buy something. Didnít look like much from the outside, but the inside was nice. A small shop with really tall shelves. The beer is in the back. Tons of obscure rare stuff on the top shelves, and plenty of more common beers in the cooler. When I visited, Bob Tupper happend to be giving out free samples of his Hop Pocket Pils and Ale. I talked to him for a while (mentioned Ratebeer) and he provided me with a mixed six pack of his delicious beers. He also gave me a nice shaker glass with his logo on it. What a nice guy. I could have spent a ton of money in there, but alas, the small backpack and the 4 mile walk really limited my cargo capacity.

Good world selection, small shop. One of the better places to go in the area if you want to try world beers or are looking for some hard to find beers. Good service too.

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.

Nice shop! After driving nearly three hours to get here, we find that parking is a bitch! In the back is all of 15 spots. All of which were filled. My girlfriend dropped me off and then proceded to park way down on the street. Now to the positives. a TON of beer, I have never seen before. Got several Fantomes, a La Bavasienne, couple of Heavyweights, some LA TRAPPE Quadruppel (I couldnít believe it was there, though no telling how old it is). Didnít reallly have to interact with the staff except when I paid. They helped me carry the stuff out to the car as well. One minor negative was their price label. Essentially a sheet of paper with some sort of info they need. Problem is, they tape it to the cap and it usually covers the label, thus making you search more than necessary. Another minor quibble is the setup - itís scattershot, but I worked around it. Another positive is a huge selection from other countries. I picked up the Romanian and Ethiopian beers I saw, as I knew Iíd probably never see them anyplace else. Great store, despite my minor hangups with it. Well worth your time!

A very impressive store. You'd never know it was there from driving on Connecticut Avenue. Great beer list, ever-changing as well. Great service. Quite knowledgable, unfortunately it's about 40 minutes away or I'd go there more often.

I could not be a beer geek without this store in my area. It has a very nice selection of beers from every corner of the globe. Be sure to look on the top of the fridge case they usually have seasonals up there that you can ask them to get from the back.

Chevy Chase has a good selection of beers from all over the world. If you need to rate a beer from Romania it is a good bet that you find one at Chevy Chase. All beers are sold but the bottle or six-pack/case. This is a real boon to those of us who are always seeking out new beers to try. The staff is marginally knowledgeable and usually helpful. Some of the staff is much more helpful than others. While I have never gotten a skunked beer from them, I have gotten bottles that appear to be quite old. Overall visit to Chevy Chase is a worthwhile visit for the beer geek. Update - last time I went they had 6 different varieties of Fantome as well as some other rare belgians. You must go here if you are in teh area!

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.
