There is a new beer guy, Hoppy Dave, who has made this the best bottle shop in the íhood (Northwest DC, Montgomery County, Maryland). Prices are better than Chevy Chase, and the attitude and vibe are better is too.
Went in this week and scored some of my favorite IPAs from all over Bellís Hopslam, Weyerbacher Double Simcoe, Stone Ruination, DF Head 60 Min, Troegs Nugget Nectar, etc.
Good selection of other styles, too - Belgians and others.
Good service, good prices there is always good beer on sale.
Hoppy Dave is not always on duty, but when heís in the house, he always has good recommendations and has yet to steer this hophead wrong.

Great place that I surprisingly had never been to while growing up in DC. I had a nice long talk with Dave and he kept pointing out supremely high quality brews, that I pretty much have had, but was pumped to see him talking up the good stuff and not pushing things that are highly priced. Saw new batch of Weyerbacher Riserva and a bunch of other cool stuff.

Who knew, during all those years accompanying my Dad on shopping trips to Rodmanís, that Iíd be buying craft beer here? Tucked away in a corner of this upscale grocery is a pretty damn good selection of beer. Cases piled high, 2 stuffed coolers, and some shelves with prime stuff. All your major micros are here: Stone, DFH, Bells, Southern Tier, JP, although no Brewers Art this time, alas. Also a fine selection of imported beers, with some especially nice Belgians. Good unintrusive service, always easy to find a bunch you want to take home.

A nice, tiny neighborhood grocery store with a fairly impressive beer selection, given its size. The aisles are tight, so do not pass gas or a bottle may fall off. Prices are reasonable, and they have the largest collection of Goose Island that I have seen in these parts.

Great beer store in the DC area -- which there are very few of. Wide selection with reasonable prices. The staff really know a lot about beer and are very enthusiastic about what they do. They also have a great selection of wines.

Went here to pick up a 5l mini keg of Bells two-hearted. Nice selection, no singles however. They have some nice beers, most prices are good some of them are outrageous though. Beer staff is helpful and parking is easy. Watch for old beer.

Two blocks south of the Friendship Heights metro station, across from the TV antenna on Wisconsin. The beer manager here actually knows his stuff, and they stock a mix of quality US micros with imports. The Belgian selection is nice, and this is the place I will be visiting when I want De Ranke, Liefmans, Hanssens and Saison Dupont. They have a number of strong dark Belgian ales, a lot of the new batch Stone 2007 RIS, as well as a couple of new beers I had not seen at Chevy Chase Wine - Arcadia Cocoa Loco and Malhuer Dark Brut. Plus, everything here is around $1-2 less than Chevy Chase. They donít carry Cantillon and they donít have a huge German selection, but for US and Belgain bottles this place is solid. If youíre wanting to collect some of the newest and rare bottles to hit DC, probably go to Chevy Chase Wine, but if you live around here and donít want to pay CCW prices for "regular" bottles like Gouden Carolus, Smuttynose Imperial Stout and Allagash Interlude ($4 cheaper here), this is the place.

A local gourmet grocery on Wisconsin Ave. accessible by the Friendship Heights metro. Was my local when I lived in the area. For a while they were without a beer buyer but the son of the owner seems to have taken over. Aside from running the most obnoxious twitter feed Iíve ever encountered he seems to know his stuff. Stocks all of the local favorites: Founders, Bellís, Green Flash, Troegs, Victory, plus a nice assortment of Belgians. They get in just about every special release that comes to the area. Prices are very good, probably the most reasonable in DC. Free parking, plus a full grocery at your disposal (including a pharmacy downstairs). Donít bother with the staff, theyíre all Ethopians who donít speak English.
