Had after dinner drinks at this place after a recommendation from a friend. What a find! Bartender was extremely nice and had a strong knowledge of beers, recommending several styles that were all as he described. I plan to make this a regular spot going forward as the crowd was very friendly, service was speedy, and the bar itself just feels like home.

The Black Squirrel has now opened a basement bar that is exceptional. They have a huge white oak bar that seats about 50. There isn’t much other seating so if you are looking to eat or talk with a group of people the upstairs bars are probably a better bet. The downstairs is tap focused with 32 beers that are not available in the other areas. Changing my rating from an 80 to an 88.
The Black Squirrel is a beer bar in Adams Morgan. They have about 70 different beers and they are all of quality. The service is excellent. Paul and Scott are knowledgeable bartenders and beer enthusiasts. They are always willing to go out of their way to facilitate customer requests and tailor their bar to the patrons which is very genuine. They will be selling their own labeled beer soon and I am excited for them in that regard. If your looking for a nice quiet place to enjoy the game and a good brew this is the place to come in Adams Morgan. Oh and the food is excellent especially the duck spring rolls.

Visited on a Monday night to watch football while in town for work and I was the only customer on a slow night. The bartender was really friendly and seemed knowledgeable. I found this place by using this website and some of the other reviews seem a little harsh. Was reasonably priced and I would definitely go back. They had a better selection then I expected and I think it would be fun to see this place on a busy night.

Probably one of my favorite places in D.C. This has a cool atmosphere which lacks the pretense of some of the other D.C. beer locations and even others on the same street. Has a continually growing tap last it seems, now with something well over 30. Good burgers on Thursday night burger night for $5 - great deal. Try Chimay cheese. Only annoying thing is you have to choose between upstairs and downstairs, which have different tap lists. On a slow night the upstairs bartenders will go down and get stuff from downstairs for you though. Great service. My style of bar.

When I visited: Late September 2014.
What I had: Elysian Savant IPA, Perennial The Last Word, and Oakshire O’Dark:30 Cascadian Dark Ale on tap, can of Sun King Wee Mac Scottish Ale, draft sample of BrewDog & Oskar Blues Shipwrecker Circus, Bratwurst Platter to eat, some white wines and an entrée for my fiancé.
What I liked: Funky gastropub vibe, lively but not too loud, fast and engaging service from the Main Floor bartender, who was quite chatty and happy to provide samples, tasty and affordable food, I enjoyed most of my beers and my partner really liked her wine, we would come here often if we lived in the area.
What I disliked: Wish I had’ve known that the Tap Room has a much better draft selection than the Main Floor and Party Room *before* we visited (since we would’ve relocated), but that’s a minor quibble.
Would I go back? Absolutely.
Overall Rating: 86

Ive been here a few times, but wanted to spend a night here before putting up a review since I live so close.
I can strongly recomend the downstairs for beer drinking over the upstairs which is more of the restaurant/typical 19th street bar (though it isn’t the riff-raff like the rest of the street). Great bartender She was rocking the bar by herself on a very busy Saturday night and was a champ. She offered up suggestions that were good and she was very knowledgeable about the beer list. The beer list which was a good size (about 70 I hear) but all quality.
I like the old sports magazine covers on the walls.
It’s the best place to grab a beer if you are out in the zoo that is my neighborhood and home, Adams Morgan.

This was a nice find on my recent trip to Washington D.C. We had a party of 8 and called ahead for a Monday night. I was told there was WiFi and informed about the beer selection that was spot on. When we arrived, I was greeted with our table and given the Network Password. The bar was full but there was only about two or three other tables. I had a burger, which was their specialty, and it did not disappoint! Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the beers. I would like to see more on draft and be allowed to take a few bottles to go. Must be a D.C. law.

The Black Squirrel is a three level place - although the bottom "street level" is not directly connected to the top two levels(and so you cannot bring beers in between each, as they would have to go outside). Ate dinner on the mid level, food was better than expected. Decent draft list. The real deal is the basement, with about 20 drafts, some mid level beer geek stuff, a few super geek stuff, but all good choices. Easily the best draft list in Adam’s Morgan, I look forward to returning.
