This pair of beer-focused bars offer two opportunities to sample brews selected by expert Greg Engert—drafts are available in “taste” sizes so you can sample suds sorted into categories such as “crisp,” “hop,” and “smoke.” Food’s good, too (in Arlington, don’t miss Ritz-cracker-topped chili mac and cheese), and funky upholstered barstools are as comfortable as easy chairs. Insider tip: Rustico hosts special events such as holiday beer festivals and family-style dinner series. Ask what’s next. Arlington bar open daily. Alexandria bar open Tuesday through Sunday.
