This 50-year-old Dupont Circle institution draws beer drinkers eager to explore its thick menu, which has more than 1,000 bottled beers (though the bar is often out of some of them). The downstairs bar is a warren of small rooms lined with tables. An airier upstairs bar hosts the Brickskeller’s famed beer tastings, which happen about once a month. A no-standing policy both upstairs and down keeps crowds to a minimum—but also means you may have to wait for a table.
