What else to say about this place that hasn't already been said. Super selection, worth a trip from either the Baltimore area or DC. From beyond, an easy stop off of I-95, though I was surprised there isn't better signing in the strip mall it's located in (I never would have known the name of the place if I had stumbled upon it...even some people who shop there don't know the name), With the high prices, they certainly could afford a sign. Even seasonals from last fall are barely discounted, but it is Howard Co. so I guess they get away with it. At least most prices are visible, and I always appreciate that. If you're looking for something specific or you enjoy ogling beer eyecandy like I do go to Perfect Pour. Service has been friendly upon entering and at the register, but I haven't been approached otherwise--no biggie, I do fine on my own. If you plan of going, sign up for emails with occasional coupons. They'll also let you know about tastings.

I thought this place was amazing. The European beer offerings especially I found to be a wider selection than anywhere else I've been. Some complain about prices, but I found them reasonably priced and comparable to most bottle shops that sell singles over in Frederick, MD.

The selection here is beyond compare (at least in Maryland). Everyone who works there is extremely knowledgeable and eager to help. Maybe a little too eager. You won't get out of there without being asked if you need anything about 10 times. That can be kind of annoying, but they do know their stuff and are everywhere. The Growler station has 12 beers on tap at all times. The only reason this place doesn't get a 5 is that their prices are higher than other places. Cindy's, also in Elkridge, has a good selection (but not as good) with better prices.

The beer staff is knowledgeable and eager to help. Great group. Even the wine side will try to help, and are not completely lost on the beer side.

The selection of beers cannot be beat. I have yet to find a beer store, coast to coast, that compares, let alone beats this store. You pay for the selection, however. For commonly available beers, you can probably go around the corner and save a dollar or more per six-pack. In my opinion, this is totally worth it. I'll take selection over bargains any day of the week.

My only complaint is that the wine side seems to be growing as of early 2014, and encroaching on the beer side. It certainly hasn't hurt their selection, and the current American beer scene will keep new things constantly coming in.

Great place, and I'll keep coming back.

when it comes tothe best selection in MD where else you gonna go ? PP always has the latest new releases as well as the staples that you need. While i often find fresher IPA's elsewhere, noone can touch their overall selection. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly although the prices are very high. New growler section is second to none from Baltimore to philly and they will exchange any old growler for a new PP one.
