Recommend Some Beer Stops in The D.C. Metro, Please

Just a quick request for recommendations: I’m going to be traveling through both the Washington D.C. and Baltimore Metro areas (and everywhere in between) next week from Wednesday through Sunday visiting family. I already know of some of the on-premise places I plan to hit — The Brickskeller, Olney Ale House, and Franklin’s in Hyattsville — but it’s been awhile since I’ve done a beer trek through that neck of the woods so can any readers out there recommend some places (especially off-premise retail stores) to pick up some beers I can’t find ’round here? Any recommendations are greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

  1. Take a stroll over to the DC-Beer email list:
    http://www.dc-beer.org/mailman/listinfo/dc-beer

    It’s an incredible collection of people from the DC/Baltimore area who can tell you all that is going on.  Evidently there’s a few new places that are definitely worth stopping in.

    Also, if you shoot me an email I’ll forward you a listing of local events.

  2. Brewer’s Art in Baltimore!

    Try their Resurrection.

  3. Belga Cafe at #514 8th

    de Konninck
    Rodenbach
    Grimbergen (on tap) among others. 
    GREAT Belgian entrees and a nice atmosphere.

  4. Check out http://www.pubquest.com for every brewery and brewpub in the area (and in the U.S. and Canada)!

  5. Thank you all for the recommendations. However, as I said in the original post, I’m not looking for brewery, brewpub or even bar recommendations; I need to find a good LIQUOR STORE so I can bring beer back with me. Please recommend a retail shop instead, please

  6. According to BeerTravelers.com the following looks very promising:

    Chevy Chase Wine & Spirits, 5544 Connecticut Ave. N.W., 202-363-4000
    A small, narrow storefront, literally packed with beer, wine and liquor. Most of the beer kept cold. More than 850 available.

  7. http://www.chevychasewine.com
    According to their website…”Our Beer department is 2nd to none in the USA, being praised by Beer Aficionado magazines and newsletters. We carry a selection of over 1,200 Brands on display from around the globe.”

  8. Perfect Chris, exactly what I was looking for. Thank you!

  9. Chevy Chase Wine most likely has the largest selection in the area. If you are in Adams Morgan, stop by De
    Vinos (http://de-vinos.com/) on 18th Street. It’s a very cool, locally owned, wine and specialty beer shop
    with great service and a knowledgeable staff. I go there weekly to pick up Belgium beauties.

    Enjoy DC!

  10. i did a beer trip to d.c. myself just a couple of weeks ago. rick’s wine and gourmet at 3117 duke st across the river in alexandria was pretty solid. i found some of the local beers i was looking for and bell’s 2 hearted ale from mi. not sure it is worth going way out of your way, but if you are down there it is definitely worth a look. i’ll be at the festival this weekend so i may see you there. — josh
