Beer Decision – July 30
The choice will be amongst four bars I haven’t been to, or haven’t been to in a long time.
This week’s competitors:
The Big Hunt
The Black Squirrel
In order for a bar to be included in this election, it needs to have a good beer selection. I’m not going to a bar where my options are 3 types of Bud and Miller Lite. I want options. Good options!
So, without further ado…
It’s been a long time since I’ve been to the Big Hunt, I’ve always enjoyed going though. It’s got a wild, slightly beat up interior that gives it a great hole-in-the-wall vibe. A fun comfortable place to visit.
The beer selection is great. A variety on tap, and a bunch of bottles. Not to mention they have Jolly Pumpkin right now, so that kinda forced Big Hunt to show up on the list. Is it time for a return visit?
This is a bar I haven’t had the pleasure of visiting yet. I’ve heard nothing but good things, but as I’ve grown older, my tendency to travel into Adams Morgan has faded away.
This shining star on 18th street has made me reconsider my position on Adams Morgan. They have a nice beer selection, and have that fun hole-in-the-wall vibe. (did I mention I like the hole-in-the-wall vibe? I’m not a classy bar kinda guy) Also, picklebacks?
Plus, recent beer additions are increasing my favoritism. Allagash Black, and Oak-Aged Mad Hatter. Maybe it’s time to make a trip into good ol’ Adams Morgan?
Surprisingly, I’ve never been here. I know, crazy, huh?
Brickskeller is known for their ridiculous beer selection. It’s one of those, you name it – they’ve got it kind of deals. Their beer list is frighteningly long (over 1000 beers), so finding something you like is almost guaranteed, however it may take a long time to find it.
This one’s a new comer. Recently opening in Columbia Heights and receiving some very exciting reviews, Meridian Pint has tossed it’s name into the hat full of DC bars with great beer.
A fun feature to the place is their taps at the tables. Personally, I’m not excited about it. I like to get a different beer every time, so being stuck with the same beer for the night disappoints me. But, the idea of not having to wait is enticing.
So… where should I go this Friday night? (Polls close at 4:30 on Friday, July 30th)
