A very cramped place near Dupont Circle, and by very cramped, I mean that a fart would knock a beer off the shelves. The beer selection is rather good and there are some downstairs, but you have to ask for them. I was able to score a Cantillon Saint Lamvinus this way. The prices are average for the area.

Randomly stopped in one day after seeing Three Floyds boxes in the window (a good way to draw customers for sure). No Three Floyds inside, but they do have Russian River, Lost Abbey, and Cigar City, which are not to be found in any other DC shop (Churchkey has some Russian River hanging out but...). In any case, this all sounds fine and dandy, until you read the price tags. Economies of scale and this place is the only place buying. LA Serpentís Stout costs $23; RR Damnation cost $15. That being said, some things are reasonably priced. I picked up a Mikkeller Single Hop for a mere $5, which is the cheapest Iíve ever seen and I got a De Dolle for $6, which is $.40 more than the cheapest Iíve seen. If you poke around you can find a deal. If you donít care what you pay for your beer, this is the place for you (if you are in that latter category, then buy me some beer please; I could use it).

Tiny little place one block north of Dupont Circle, on the right side of Connecticut. Street parking is usually available in front or in the next block north. Mostly wine and spirits, with a row of about 5 coolers and two racks of shelves housing singles. A relatively small selection of beers, but there is a TON of stuff here I couldnít find anywhere else in DC or MD: lots of Stillwater, Mikkeller, Lost Abbey, etc. Thereís also a great selection of more widely available brewers, such as Unibroue, Sierra Nevada, and Dogfish. The beer buyer, Al, said he likes to stock the craft beers that he loves, and will often try to get that hard to find stuff. He is definitely amenable to placing an order for you, and he once held a six-pack of Colette for me for several days. He also has an emailing list. Prices were surprisingly average for DC. All in all, a worthwhile place to stop by if you are looking for something hard to find, or not readily available in the area. Great service, too.

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.

How many billion times have I passed this joint in my life? Only on a recent visit home did I actually act on reviews and stop in for some beverage. Nice selection of regional and national craft, with DC Brau, Alewerks, Stillwater, and others well represented. Not a vast selection by any means, but quality for sure.

These guys donít have as many beers as say, Chevy Chase or even U Street Beer but what they get is usually very good. They have a great mix of the Belgian trappist classics and some cool imported stuff from Nogne, Italian breweries and others like Mikkieller and Evil Twin. Stuff is pricey though, as itís good. Good location near Pizzeria Paradiso Dupont.

ya know, i wasnt that impressed with this place. I know they get some rare stuff here like heady topper and Surly stuff however, its very small and crowded. Service is pretty strict and prices are out of this world. Surly cans for $7 a piece? i know its hard to get there but dont need that much price gouging!

Nice bottle shop with good selection of wines and beers. They have good stuff including Russian River and 3 Floyds. Small but high-quality selection

Decent little liquor shop a few steps from the Dupont Circle metro station. Some coolers with refrigerated beer and a small corner of non-chilled beers. Decent liquor selection though Iíve never paid much attention, have seen some stuff like Buffalo Trace. They used to have out of market beers for sale but Iíve heard theyíve stopped doing that. Occasionally there will be some craft beer gems that pop up. Prices are reasonable to a tad pricey depending on the beer. The beer buyer Al is helpful and friendly.

Nice little liqour store with two shelves of beer and two six pack coolers. Nothing that blew my mind in comparison to some other places but it was a good beer store. There are a few more in the area that have a similar selection and they dont have quite the ratings, so i dont know what gives. Maybe the place went downhill or doesnt have as much of a selection as it did before but i find that hard to imagine as it is very tiny as it is.
