You may not notice it, but you pass it every time you ride the GUTS bus to Dupont Circle. The mere existence of that free lift (and the three nearby bus routes that run past the university) make ignoring this bar pure foolishness.
The Brickskeller, located at 22nd and P St., carries a wider variety of beers than you could possibly imagine. Some are expensive, some are not. Either way, it’s a chance to experiment with new brews from a vast array of countries (from Venezuela to Sri Lanka).
The atmosphere of the bar is acceptable, though the music playing on the jukebox is really hit or miss. Seating is ample. Try the Gouden Caroulis Tripel, it’s worth your time and certainly easier than flipping through their dozen-page beer menu.
