For brewpubs, try DogFish Head in Seven Corners (my favorite) or Dominion Brewery out near Dulles/Sterling.
Dogfishhead is awesome!!!! Try the Raison d-Etre.

Even though RFD advertised quite a few drafts they always seem to have issues with equipment being broken, or so they say. I have been to sweetwater tavern and was not impressed with their beers. They do have a sampler of their homemade brews.
Both RFD & Brickskeller have an impressive selection, though not all is draft (and not all are available every night). They both have current tap and specialty lists when you go, so I just stick to those since it's more likely that it'll be in stock. Otherwise, just don't get your heart set on one specific beer.

RFD's bigger, so it can be easier to get a table, however you can also make reservations at Brickskeller.

Yup, Lost Dog has a huge selection...probably more than 200 beers at least, but most are in bottles.

Brasserie Beck is one of my favorites too - for Belgian beer selection, they are imo the #1 place in the entire DC metro area. It's a more upscale place, but def a great atmosphere for enjoying a few Belgian brews.
