I live down the road from this place, but had not visited until recently. I will be spending a lot of time here. Sure, the prices reflect the MoCo location, but they are surprisingly good given that fact. What's more, the tap/growler prices are actually pretty good, and the selection and rotation are top notch. What really sets this place apart is the apparent love for beer. Most of the workers really enjoy talking about brews, and that coupled with the layout of the place, the great music playing over the speakers, and the frequent tasting events from craft brewer's big and small makes this not just the best spot in the county for craft brew lovers, but indeed a worthwhile spot for anyone in the D.C. area.

As has been stated in other reviews, this is hands down the best place to get beer in Montgomery County. Of course, residents know that Montgomery County is (I think) the only county in the nation where the Department of Liquor Control needs to purchase the beer first and then it can be acquired by independent stores. This results in higher prices and very few decent places that sell a variety of quality beer because it's easier for these stores to establish themselves in bordering counties, DC, or VA.

That said, this place offers a phenomenal selection and the prices aren't too bad all things considered. They also have a nice draft selection which utilizes a digital beer display and about 20 rotating brews. This is on my way home from work, so I can easily envision myself making a habit of stopping here to grab a fresh beer and browse their latest haul. Staff is also very friendly and knowledgeable, this is the only place you need to bother going in Montgomery County.

This place is awesome, bets place in Montgomery County to buy beer period. The staff is always extremely friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. Have 12 taps so the ability to grab growlers is awesome as well. Being that this is located 5 minutes from office, frequent trips are made here.

Excellent draft and beer selection. Wine selection looks good too, but I do not drink it. They offer ~12 drafts that are constantly rotating. You can follow them on FB and see what is on tap. They offer 2-4 oz pours too!!!

Pretty nice selection for Montgomery County, but the prices to match. Has mix-a-6 of most of the beers they carry. Both a beer and wine bar. Better than most in the area.
