Great Bars 2011: Black Squirrel

With hard-to-find craft labels such as Lost Abbey and Fat Tire, this Adams Morgan pub is a place for serious beer drinkers. There are 17 seasonal taps—and plans to add 32 more—plus about 100 bottled options. If you feel overwhelmed, bartenders can help you decide, or you can find recommendations in the menu’s “staff picks” section. With three specialty beer cocktails, mixed-drink fiends aren’t left out. And neither are those with wheat allergies—gluten-free beer and cider are available.
