I had my first legal beer (you had to be 18 years old then) at the Brickskellar 60 years ago; so on my latest trip to DC I wanted to return to my old haunt. The space is the same with the long bar with 100s of different beers, the reasonable - certainly not gourmet - bar food is similar,... More

Amazing beer selection, funky eclectic location and decor. So-so service and food. We didn't feel great after the chicken nachos and swear there was a food inspector when we were there. So definitely check it out - just don't order food!

I came here to try some beer with friends. We didnt get food but they were super nice about letting us have a table. The service was very good and I would go back to try the food. The beer selection though is the star. There are so many incredible beers to choose from, it is almost overwhelming. This is... More

Not far from Dupont Circle, this is an excellent bar. Great selection of beer, and the food is well presented, tasty and good value. The menu features burgers extensively, but there are other things. We enjoyed the beer and food so much we came back for a second time on our short visit to Washington.

Very happy to have discovered this place with friends. Lots of dark wood and a bit of a dive, ... but that just adds to the charm. Friendly, attentive staff and an amazing selection of beers.

Happen to walk past the Bier Baron on my way back to my hotel on Friday 4th November and dropped in for a drink and food. On entering the building, the bier baron is down a few steps to the right. These steps are carpeted and the carpet is filthy! The bar and dining area are quite dark but even... More

Being a Brit, I love to search down quirky local bars with a huge selection of real beers (or craft beers as Americans call it, as if it had just been invented). This place was perfect. Looks to be on a few levels with a hotel upstairs. The bar/restaurant where I plonked my butt was downstairs, so nice and dark.... More

I did not try the restaurant although I looked at the menu but no comments on that. I had some time to kill and wanted a good basic no-nonsense pub to do it in. This place filled the bill. The server (Dawson) was good and attentive. We chatted a bit but she overall left me alone which is what I... More
