So much like a church of beer that they have a bound-beer bible with their hundreds of beers listed and described in aching detail. This shelter secured a spot right across from the Verizon Center, and is a safe haven for that area, indeed. So much so that you may never want to leave, and you don't really ever have to, since there is a 43 room hotel attached to the bar that's been there for something like a hundred years. Or sleep off your Saturday in good company. Either way.
