Located in the heart of Chevy Chase, just south of the circle, lies one of the best beer selections in the whole region. Chevy Chase W & S offers over 1200 (I didn't count) varieties of beer, mostly in individual bottles. Each one is tagged, telling the price of the individual bottle or 6-pack. Needless to say, there are micros and imports that you won't find anywhere else nearby. There are plenty of Belgians, bombers, and offbeat offerings. Staff was helpful and knew their stuff. Give it a try...it's worth negotiating the traffic.
