Visited during vacation in November. Ran across it by mistake after seeing beer signs in the window. Walked in and was surpirsed by the beer selection. Place was busy on a Friday and bar area kinda cramped but once we got a seat it was all good. Great beer selection and the first time I had Breakfast Stout, bonus that it was on tap. Bartenders were friendly and knowledgable. Had a great time and went back twice before leaving back home. Did not try the food so cannot say much about it. Menu did look great though.

Small narrow place in Adams Morgan. They do food (didnít eat) but this is unmistakeably a bar rather than a restaurant. Comfortable and welcoming, although I can imagine it being a bit of a crush at weekends. Slightly alternative feel. The beer list isnít huge but has some decent quality offerings. Service was efficient, friendly and very knowledgeable. The female bartender had been to a Brewlab brewing course in Sunderland (UK) and they are planning a brewery in the basement. Watch this space.

Ive been here a few times, but wanted to spend a night here before putting up a review since I live so close.
Iíve still only been downstairs though. 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.
Itís 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.

Small place, long and narrow. Dozen barstools, 8 or so tables. Nice selection for a small place, very well-chosen with some hard to find surprises. Staff was very knowledgeable about the beer and the food (and the hard liquor - including absinthe and a rare regional gin!). their recommendations were spot on. A good addition to the area, and to the DC beer scene in general.

a chance find during a week long stay in the area. small place on a street full of bars. Got a bit crowded but getting to the bar was still manageable and the bar tenders seemed to know how to pour drinks properly. Tried one of the house beers and it was decent. Tried food once and they seemed to have good upper scale bar fare. A absolute try if you are in the Adams Morgan area.

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.

narrow, cozy bar. Small selection of draught beers and a large selection of bottles. Staff was friendly. I didnít eat there - canít comment on that. They didnít offer me a glass with my bottled beer, but otherwise a really nice beer bar. Iíll be back when Iím back in DC.

The Black Squirrel has now opened a basement bar that is exceptional. They have a huge white oak bar that seats about 50. There isnít 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.
