Dawson's, simply put, has the best selection of beer in Maryland. Not to mention an awesome and well priced American whiskey and other liquors selection. I've never really talked beer with any of the employees but they are always there patrolling the store and asking you if you need any help. You can tell whoever runs the beer section knows their beer, there are always awesome new releases to be found there. Recent examples are FF exit 16 and GI Night Stalker.

Dawson's has a mix of east coast and west coast craft and everything in between. They have some hard to find items too. For example I found some Firestone-Walker there the other week which I did'nt even know was distributed to Maryland.

Which leads me too the one thing I don't like about Dawson's. Some of the beer on their shelves is old. That Firestone-Walker I was so excited about was over a year old. I also managed to find some nearly two year old DFH Palo Santo there which was quite good though.

So if your're looking for something hard to find chances are you will find it at Dawson's. But, when you go, check the dates if you're after anything where freshness matters.

Edit: Just wanted to add that this is really the best beer store in MD. Blows Chevy Chase wine and spirits away.

Danny, Matt, Nick, and the whole staff have always been extremely helpful - willing to walk through the store with me and discuss beer styles. They are always willing to make recommendations - and I have always appreciated and agreed with their choices. The store selection is very good, as I like to stock up on bombers to allow more variety in my samplings. They also run a beer club in conjunction with a local restaurant and host dinners paired with beer selections several times a year at another local restaurant.

I have lived in Severna Park for the past 20 years, and Dawson's is by far the best place to get good beer (and wine, for that matter). The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and don't hesitate to recommend beers to you, especially if you're a regular and they know the beer styles that you like (for me, it is high-gravity, hoppy ales). They have a huge selection of micro brews from across the nation (Stone, Lagunitas, Rogue, Sierra Nevada, Southern Tier, Blue Point, Oscar Blues, to name a few). They also host a monthly beer tasting at Lures restaurant in Crownsville, as well as some less frequent beer and/or wine tastings at Cafe Bretton restaurant in Severna Park. I attended the Stone beer tasting they hosted at Cafe Bretton last year, and it was fantastic. If you're in the area, be sure to check Dawson's out.

Dawson's has by far the best selection of domestic and import beers in the area and a great staff as well. Floor-to-ceiling racks are filled with domestic 22-ouncers, and other racks feature large import singles and Belgians/lambics/etc. A wall is devoted to six-packs, and several coolers offer the same refrigerated. Stacked six-packs and cases fill the floor of the beer section. The selection changes regularly; they usually have the new seasonals. In addition, Danny and the beer staff are very knowledgable and passionate about beer. My only gripe is I spend too much money there.
