This could be controversial. Today, I'm counting down the best beer selections in Columbia Heights.
Several factors came into consideration as I pondered this. Draft v. bottle ratio. Diversity. Price. Prettiness of the tap. Ok, maybe not the last one. Anyhow... here they are, COUNTDOWN Columbia Heights: Beer Selection. (I let a Mt. P locale slip in here after calculating its proximity to CH and determining it acceptably close.)
5. Tonic (beer list)
4. Red Derby (beer list)
3. Wonderland (menu)
2. Red Rocks (beer list)
1. Commonwealth (beer list)
And now, some justifications...
The Brits know their beer and Commonwealth always has good drafts in extra large sizes, specials, and even flights. Red Rocks frequently brings in an interesting new brew. Wonderland just had a lot of beer and for a dive bar their draft options are solid. Red Derby has great options, but the lack of drafts hurt them with me. And Tonic's list includes Bud Light. Your thoughts?
