Take the Red Line to the upscale Dupont Circle neighborhood and you’ll find a plethora of restaurants and bars surrounding a fountain and park. As a spoke in the wheel that is this neighborhood, you can fan out from the park in just about any direction and find good beer.

While Dupont has been known for its nightlife for a while, in the past few years it has become a craft beer hotspot. Many of the city’s best beer bars can be found in or around Dupont Circle or Logan Circle, which we include here because of its close proximity. This area also is home to a number of great retail options for craft beer.
