Default Good beer around Washington DC

We'll be in Washington DC for week this summer for my 6th graders trip. Anyways I always like to try good beers. Anything around DC (beer-wise) that I should check out?

in the city? Capitol City Brewing for brew pub and Church Key for the biggest selection

outside the city? depends on location

out here by Dulles, we have Lost Rhino brew pub and a Dogfish Head Alehouse

also, there are several Sweetwater Taverns that brew and they make a dang tasty Black IPA

i'm not really sure of the hotel yet so I'm not sure what part of town. if it's good, I'd be willing to travel a little.

Capitol City is pretty centrally located, within walking distance of the National Mall, the White House, Verizon Center, Convention Center, Chinatown and two Metro Rail stations.

Grand Hyatt is stumble-back-to-the-hotel close

Rock Bottom is in Rosslyn, VA, right across the river and is a good choice if you're visiting Arlington National Cemetary &/or the Marine Corps Iwo Jima memorial

Hyatt Dulles... that's my 'hood

take your pick; Lost Rhino, Dogfish Head Alehouse and Sweetwater Tavern are all very close by

Hyatt Fair Lakes is not far from the same places, even closer to DFH than Dulles
