It serves up great cocktails and has some very tasty craft beer on tap.
The menu is reasonably priced, with a few craft beers on offer, including a lot of local beers.
It even has a good selection of craft beer, including some of our favorite local brews.
The Georgetown tap handles are a little more complex, and we love the choice of craft beers available.
But they’re not as cheap as the Georgetown taps, so you may have to spend a little extra to get something that tastes like the local beers you’re looking for.
The tap handles at these locations are:Bars and restaurants that serve craft beer:Lucky’s Bar & Lounge, 811 15th St., NW, (202) 973-1050Bars serving traditional American beers:Cafe & Barrel, 20 E Street NW, 202-832-7223Bar serving craft beer and local brewpub selections:Ginger’s Pub, 1002 14th St. NW, 201-847-0277Bars offering some of their local brew beers:Bar serving the freshest brews in town:The Tap House, 1317 17th St.; (202-543-9271)Bars that serve some of Washington’s finest craft brews:Drew’s Tavern, 3201 15th Street NW; (202)-541-0850Bar serving craft beers and local microbreweries:The Beer House, 1211 16th St, NW; 202-731-4550Barts offering some local brew options:Bar Serving the fresher brews of DC:Beer lovers should be aware that these taps are not as clean as the tap handles on the Georgetown and Georgetown tap hands.
The Tap House is one of the worst offenders, and it serves up an overabundance of beer that is not nearly as well-balanced as you might expect.
We have some suggestions for cleaning these taps:Bartenders at the Bar of the Stars: The Taphouse and Cafe & Barrel are two of the better bars in Washington and are a favorite of craft brewers.
The bartender there is extremely friendly and helpful, and he is knowledgeable about beer and serves some of it well.
However, you’ll have to pay a little bit more than other barkeepers to get the freshening you want from them.
The D.D. Tap Handle: There are a lot more taps in the district than you might think, and there are a couple of better ones.
The bar at the Capitol Hill restaurant is one, and the beer is always fresh and tasty.
You’ll find a few good local craft brew options, but this is a great place to get a taste of the District.
The Pub on Madison: This bar and restaurant on Madison is great for beer lovers looking for a nice, casual atmosphere.
The food is pretty decent and the service is fast and friendly.
The Tap Handle on Dupont Circle: Dupont is a neighborhood that has a lot to offer and this is the bar that is most likely to give you a great drink if you’re coming from out of town.
The place is fairly clean, and if you have an appetite for something a little different, this is definitely worth checking out.
