This place is located right off of Dunlop circle right across from the metro stop. Itís a really steep escalator so I prefer taking the elevator. Itís a posh street so the shop fits in with the vibe. They donít have a lot of beer just three coolers and a couple of bookshelves. I scored some Surly which Iíve never seen around here. They also had some 3 Floydí, Russian river, and some Fantome. So in short they donít have a ton but what they have is of quality and some rare for the region or the country. Of course it ainít cheap but where are are you going to score Surly around here?

A small liquor, wine and beer shop in the heart of DC with an extraordinary beer selection - quality not quantity. Thanks top liberal liquor control laws in DC, the get some beers not distributed in the region, e.g., Three Floyds, Russian River and Cigar City.

One of my favorite stops. The selection isnít tremendous but the quality of the selection is great. Iíve been here a few times while in D.C. and they seem to always get a few bucks from me. The service isnít great. You always have to ask your questions to the clerk behind the register because there are customers constantly checking out. This limits the guy behind the counter to help each and every browser. The prices are market up on things that are not typically found in D.C. and that makes sense to me. Iíve been to a lot of places and this is a place worth going.

As the others say, make up in quality for what it lacks in quantity. Based on the "beers available" this place must rotate selection constantly as they did not have most of the stuff on the list. I did pick up a Jai Alai and a Juliet, however, and was pretty happy.

Solid stop in DC that gets rare stuff due to DCís awesome import rules, ie occasional Alesmith, Russian River, Anchorage..although the prices for those are higher.

small bottle shop / deli - a few coolers with six packs and bombers plus a few shelves of imports and bombers. the pricing on the stuff normally found in DC is average, but the grey market stuff (AleSmith, RR, etc) is very expensive. They had some Speedway Stout and AleSmith IPA as well as a few other rarities. I got a FW Sucaba for ~$17 - not bad.

I was visiting from out of town and made a special trip to come here based on the ratings. I was disappointed and found it did not live up to its hype. The fridge selection was inferior to that of even the Whole Foods in Foggy bottom, and while there were some more unique offerings (Mikkeller) a lot of the supposedly grey market offerings (Russian River) were nowhere to be found. A lot of the specialty stuff that was there was room temperature and looked pretty much picked over, with the remaining items looking like they were near or past their sell by date.
On the plus side, the gentleman working there was very helpful -- looks like getting on a email list will get you a heads up of new arrivals, which appear to fly out of the place fairly quickly. So, if you live nearby in the Dupont Circle area, the higher ratings are probably warranted. I did pick up a nice item from Deschutes which is next to impossible to find on the east coast.

Small shop right next to the Dupont Circle North metro station. A small selection of six packs: Founderís, Bellís, Flying Dog, plus other locals. They seem to get the most of the grey market stuff: Deschutes, Russian River, DDC, Surly, Cigar City, pretty much whatever you can think of at a hefty markup. The staff is usually friendly although the beer guy lied to my face the other day about a special release. Definitely the place to go if you have money to burn though.

The south entrance of the Dupont Circle Metro stop will be closed for most of 2012. This convenience store is located to the east and just south of the north Metro station entrance. 750s of Tilquin 375s of Girardin. Host of american and local beers in a small space. Russian River, Founders, Lost Abbey and Bells. Wish I could remember if they closed at 9 or 10pm on a weeknight. Either way it was earlier than it should be given the activity on the street and the number of people in the shop. A man walked up to me and asked if I had tried the Tilquin geuze. I thought he had simply walked in off of the street and asked me this question because he did not look like he worked there. I was in a transitionary state of thinking during the encounter, as I was in the process of figuring out he did work at the convenience store, but since I had not figured this out completely during the brief encounter, I gave him quite a strange look.
