By far the LARGEST selection of beers you will find anywhere. They estimate the numbers as over one thousand different beers, Yes, No typo. That was a 1 followed by 3 zeros! It's an old tavern in the Dupont Circle section of DC. There is...More

OK, the Brickskiller is a legend. That doesn’t mean that it will be the best experience you’ve ever had, but if you are close, you HAVE to visit at least once. You will probably share molecules with a remnant of every past decade for hundreds...More

I loved the Brickskeller in 1963! I'll not forget my first Brickskeller bartender. The bar was pretty crowded and as I always did in Texas, I stood up with my beer and started to wander around! The bartender shouted to me to sit down! I...More

Our church's young adults group hosts a theology on tap event here monthly, with about 40-50 people on average. Bier Baron lets us host for free on Tuesdays - instead of for several hundred dollars at other places!! They have a $10 burger and draft...More

This place is old and pretty grungy, but it's full of character and history and HOLY CRAP a butt-load of beer. If you're a beer lover, you're going to think you've died and gone to hops-heaven!!! I've never tried the food, but I don't think...More

We went to the Bier Baron for dinner since a friend of mine was staying at the hotel upstairs. Let just say their food selection is on rather small scale, unlike their beer one. But they have a beer & burger special for $10. They...More
