In Edgewater there aren't many options for beer stores, though a few are in the area. Hollywood has a pretty great selection for a neighborhood bodega store.

The location is situated on the corner of Hollywood and Ridge, with a sign depicting actors portraits from the classic golden age of Hollywood. Inside there's a bank of coolers to the left that stretch the length of the store. First up is a fairly eclectic mix of bombers and 750s, including Evil Twin, Alpha Klaus, Rodenbach Grand Cru, Goudenband, and more. Further back is slew of sixers, including 13 varieties of Bells. More from FFF, Founders, Summit, Great Lakes, Northwoods (?), Uinta, and more. Fairly good array of mixed cases on the lower cooler shelves... Sam Adams, Magic Hat, 2x Flying Dog, Central Waters. In the back corner were many cans from Half Acre, Wild Onion, Avery, Uncommon Brewers, 2 Bros Outlaw, Finch's Secret Stache. Picked up a Lagunitas Cappucino Stout and Evil Twin Soft DK here.

Register guy was friendly and said hello when I walked in, chatted about the beer selection. Overall a good shop for the area, though not a destination really. Recommended in Edgewater/Andersonville.
