Not a bad bar, but not really a great beer destination. Not worth visiting when Meridian Pint nearby unless youíre going to dance, or take a date or something. They usually have a few IPAs on draft, mostly typical stuff you can find everywhere, and some German or Czech beers. Patio is nice outside. Has a lot of character as a bar.

Stopped in here during an evening of beery rambling with Travlr. Pretty hipster spot with a large patio. The beer selectionís not the main attraction, but there were a few solid options like Delirium Tremens and locals from Chocolate City. The service wasnít particularly great. The bartender had no idea what was available, so I had to read the tap handles myself to get an idea of what they had. Prices were fair for DC. Overall, itís the kind of place to hit during a crawl. Definitely not worth a detour.

Interesting place for brunch, dinner, or late night bar scene, this is all by itself in a neighborhood of Columbia Heights. Outdoor seating during the daytime. Interesting brunch menu with "Mac Ní Chesse Pancakes" on the menu, which I tried. Decent, fun to try. Skillets looked better. Larger menu with a litany of large plate food. Beer list leaned towards German macros and stuff like Delirium Tremens. They had DC Brau and Chocolate City on tap as well. Semi serious beer bar. Warning: They have "Blueberry Pancake Beer" on the beer list. This is not the Kuhnhenn beer. This is Wild Blue, one of the grossest beers on the planet. So do not order the Blueberry Pancake Beer no matter what you do. Our server was nice but forgot to pick up our check/cards for 15 minutes so we had to find him inside the building. Prices were fair. Without drinks, we ate brunch for $22 for the two of us.

Revisionist dive that manages to feel well-worn. Hipster as all get-out. Popular sidewalk terrace. Well-chosen dozen taps that leaned toward full-flavored imported and craft lagers. Which I dug. Nary an extreme beer to be found. Not hugely friendly, not chatty at all in fact, which I found oddly refreshing after a month in the Midwest.

This place has undergone a slow but steady yuppification in the last few years. Fortunately, the outdoor/sidewalk patio is still a decent place to hang out, especially when the weather is good. Itís worth stopping by on your way to/from Meridian Pint, but MP has a far better beer selection.

I LOVE THIS PLACE. For sluts. Not for beer. They just so happen to have a few decent brews at all times, mostly German. A proper skanky Saturday night binge spot. Itís tucked away in a residential area in the now-developing Columbia Heights. The crowd is a little on the hip side, so if that bothers you, go to RFD and shuv it up with the bros and biddies after a Caps game lets out. Or go to Churchkey and kick it with a bunch of suits. If you can hang, and youíre young anndddd you want to have fun, do visit.

A dance hall style bar that is dark and dingy. Sat at the top floor and asked for the oktoberfest that was on tap. There was a note above the tap later saying Dunkel that i didnt see until i got the beer, realized it was not an oktoberfest. I was not told by the waitress what it was. Not really a beer bar and iím sure they dont clean their lines.

Wonderlandís a bit of the beaten track, even for those of us with friends in Columbia Heights, but it has a half-decent selection of beers such Eggenberg Pils on draft and a beer garden. It also had some California pale ales that I hadnít seen elsewhere in DC (I donít know the Bricksellerís list off by heart). The jukebox is one of DCís best and they have DJs too.
