There were interesting taps on today with a few good’uns amongst them from a previous nights Whisky and Beer pairing (yes, whisky barrel aged Impy Stouts). The 4 oz pours were welcomed to try a couple and they were generous pours too. BBQ available alas I didn’t eat this time around. Staff were attentive and clearly knowledgeable about their beer and whisky. I arrived bang on opening time so avoided any potential after work crowd (Friday).

rather big place with a nice taplist . Prices are alright , most things are available in small pours as well . Rather slow service though ( maybe just tonight ? ) . Would revisit .

Nice beer list and decent BBQ. 25 draft beers - all available in small pours of $2 to $4. Nice deal.

Good selection of regional brews, and great barbecue, if a little expensive.

Very cool bar that’s like Churchkey’s little brother, with a slightly smaller tap and bottle list that is no less good proportionately. Beers available in full pours or 4oz samples. Mostly a whiskey bar with an incredible list of bottles. Service here is great as well. Definitely a good place I wish I lived closer to.

Pretty standard BBQ joint in ambiance. Stained wood, a long bar with plenty of bourbon displayed. The tap list was pretty solid, though very expensive. Local beers weren’t in abundance on the menu. Tilquin gueuze was available on draft for a pretty eye-watering price, so I scrolled past. The food’s pretty mediocre, I would eat elsewhere. Overall, maybe worth a look if you’re in the area. Frankly, the prices are so high in DC that you might as well just go to Churchkey.

Nice two floor bar with mostly barbecue style food items. Good sized bar on the main floor with 24 taps and a decent amount of dining tables. Bottle menu looked pretty decent. Bottom floor (Bottom of the Barrel) is smaller than upstairs and only has 12 of the 24 taps, I suppose you could ask the downstairs bartender nicely for one of the drafts upstairs if it’s not too busy. Food is pretty good though I’m not big on their ribs. Prices seem about average and they have a few draft specials for happy hour.

I somehow had never made it to Smoke and Barrel until this past weekend. This is a long, but narrow place, with a main floor and a basement located on the outskirts of douche-filled Adams Morgan - where there’s at least three original/real/THE Jumbo Slice locations.

Draft list and bottle list were pretty good. Lots of solid things, with a number of hard-to-find local brews from the region that were a nice find. Big bottles were a bit pricy, but drafts and single-serving bottles were priced fine.

Food was quite tasty. Plenty of Bourbon and whiskey choices there too.
