The store is just on the edge of a rather nice area (at least it looks nice). The best way to get to this place from the metro is to get off at Foggy Bottom and walk north up New Hampshire to M Street. It's right next to the Chinese restaurant, and not too far from Pizzeria Paradiso (Dupont Circle). Also, if you keep walking west on M Street, you will reach the Georgetown Pizzeria Paradiso.

The beers are at the left side of the store, with some refrigerated coolers and a few shelves off the good stuff. There are also six packs stacked around the middle of the store. I didn't explore the entire place, but looked like that was the extent of the beer selection. I was able to grab a couple bottles of some rare stuff (Ola Dubh 16 and Bourbon County Stout). The selection isn't the greatest, as Chevy Chase up in Chevy Chase seems to have every beer that's delivered to the Potomac Region.

Service seemed good enough for those looking for wine, I didn't ask for help, as I rarely do. Everyone seemed friendly though. The prices seemed to be about what they should be.

Not a bad place to stop if you pass by it. If you're like me, this is probably a good place to go that has a good selection of beers that aren't available in Northern Virginia. Recommended.
