Default Where to drink in DC?

Can anyone recommend a good bar in Washington, DC? I'm looking for a good variety of craft brews on tap. Good pub food is a plus since time is short and we can combine dinner with a few brews.

where will you be?

well it really doesn't matter

RFD is in Chinatown across from the MCI center.

they have 30 ish on tap, and a 1000 or so bottles....

it can be daunting when there is a caps game, but its the best! right now is Oktoberfest, they had 7 on tap!

Looks like I'll be staying 6-7 blocks from there and the website says they're having a weeklong Octoberfest the week I'm there. I'll give it a try - thanks!

No, the missus and I will fly in Oct 21 and then rent a car and drive the Blueridge Parkway on the 24th on the way to Roanoke for a few days.

+1 RFD.

Also, Pizzeria Paradiso.

Too bad Dr. Dremo's shut down.

The Brickskeller is a legend, but they only have about 1/4 of the beers on the menu, and the food isn't so good. There's a pizza joint not too far away. \

yes, they wanted to make money, so they opened RFD next to the stadium.
