First, i'd like to thank everyone that posted suggestions in here, very helpful, especially 24 hours before we were leaving.

We did Good Dog Bar in Phialdelphia and we really enjoyed this place. We delayed our departure for Washington also to taste more bottles at Good Dog.

In Washington we went at Ben's Chili restaurant which was pretty decent and crowded. Then there's a nice beer store on U street between 13th and 14th with good selection of beers that we went. Then headed to ChurchKey
I have to say a special thanks to markm2151 for this place! That was awesome. We got there, outside the bar, waiting in line. Then we entered, climbed up the stairs and that was SO crowded! I was like meh... theres no place, and with our backpacks... but we gave it a try, we walked all the way to the back and then surprise...! an empty table, lots of place for the 3 of us! I thought we would have to buy a champagne bottle to stay there but nop, the waiter came with 3 glass of water and beer menus! Beer selections is insane, extraordinary quality and a cheap bill. We all enjoyed this place. We took many 4oz to try as much as we could. We left at 1 A.M., our bus for New York was leaving at 2 a.m. BTW, we forgot to visit the White House and all the other things that you should see when you go to Washington DC... funny...

7h a.m., New York City. Visited a bit, shopped a bit. We went at 2 differents beer store, 1 was really bad, no selection, 2 guys that doesnt know much about beer (or dont give a f***)... not that good price. Growler station in greenwich Village.
The other one was fabulous. New Beer Distributors, 167 Chrystie St. They had a large selection of beer, at a reasonable price with knowledgable staff. They even have lots of specials beers from Quebec, Canada, where we come from. Bought many bottles at this place.

We ended the afternoon at the Blind Tiger Pub. Really nice place as well. I tasted Ballast Point - Victory at sea, Imperial porter which became one of my favorite! Onctuous, chocolate, coffee, malty, bready. Took lots of other good beer too, very impressive.

That was a short fast trip, I really enjoyed the places you told me to go. Ill come back for sure, I didnt had the time to try everything! Missed Peculier Pub, Iron monkey, and others.

Thanks again! Here's few pictures of the trip. I'm the guy with the "VEGA" t-shirt and headphones around the neck and others are friends.
