Located in Georgetown, not far from the Exorcist stairs, this is the best beer bar in Washington DC. It is located in the basement of a very fine pizzeria. A Must Stop for beer trekkers.
My husband and I were spending the night in Georgetown and came across this happy little place. They have a great selection of excellent beers and their taps rotate frequently. I love it when people are not afraid to change up the taps! I highly recommend this place, especially if you like drinking superb beers in a cozy olde english style pub.
Note that you have to enter the pizza restaurant above and walk to the back and down the steps to the basement. It wasn’t terribly obvious to us how to get to the beer bar but after asking someone for directions, we managed.
Been going to this place for so long, beer wasn’t the focus when I started frequenting this spot. That being said, in despite the amazing beer program, go to this place for the pizza!

At the bar downstairs be sure to ask the guy for off-menu stuff, he often will age beers and then sell them for their original prices. I had I believe a 2005 hercules in 2008 here for the same price as the 2008 hercules. Also they make a yearly or so trip to three floyds and sell those guys. Make sure you sit at the bar and talk to the bartender.
Great place. Good pizza and good beer. Service was excellent. Bartender was cool and bar manager was cool. Solid tap list and a very nice ’special bottle’ list. I had an alpha king, gordon, and struiselensis, tsjeeses. I was even offered a 08 Darklord. Crazy good selection and a more enjoyable stop than the brickskeller. Hell, they even had New Glarus Belgian Red...good luck finding that anywhere outside of wi (good thing i live in wi).
