Dupont Circle, Washington, DC –
A spacious basement pub with more than five hundred bottled beers and fifty more on tap, Bier Baron Tavern – located under the Bier Baron Hotel – draws a mix of beer connoisseurs, college students, and after-work politicos eager to get down to some serious drinking in this hops and barley heaven.
Walls covered in vintage tin beer signs, goblets, and cans set the beer-centric tone, overshadowed only by the massive refrigerators showcasing all the options at the bar.
Those looking to pair their pints with some hearty fare need only duck through the brick archway and into the dining room, where office buddies flip through an eleven-plus-page drink menu and scruffy international backpackers enjoy a hefty pile of bratwurst with their specialty brew.
Fridays and Saturdays feature local bands playing mostly acoustic music from a small nook on the second level, while very popular monthly beer tastings bring in large groups of friends and curious couples to sample a limited edition brewski or two…or three.
Given the option to sleep it off at the upstairs hotel, rowdier college kids sometimes get carried away working through the menu, forgetting that it could easily take a year to sample every beer at Bier Baron Tavern.
Mix of college students, young professionals, embassy workers, international travelers, and beer connoisseurs, early 20s to late 30s+.
Live music ranging from acoustic jams and one-man band sessions to rock hits mixed with funky loops. Jukebox.
Pub menu including bratwurst, hamburgers, fish and chips, and authentic Polish pierogi. Happy Hour Su–Th 4:45–7pm.
Brunch menu $15–$17, appetizers $4–$9, salads $6–$10, entrées $9–$12, weekly specials $10–$20. Beer $5–$13/bottle or $4–$13/draft, 1985 Thomas Hardy $200/bottle, wine $7–$13/glass or $35–$45/bottle, cocktails $4–$10.
Anything goes: jeans and t-shirts to business attire.
Fridays and Saturdays for live music and a lively crowd, or any day to relax with a rare beer.
Buffalo Billiards (1330 19th Street NW) offers forty HD TVs tuned to sports, pool and shuffleboard tables, dart boards, and Skeeball.
