For someone who cant get founders, bells or great lakes in my area (Baltimore) this is a great find. a little bit of a drive but their hours allow for the drive to be a little more tolerable.

Prices seemed right on point, the service was okay. I had to ask for help but im not too bothered by that. once i did, they were really helpful.

The selection was great. Ive been trying tpo trade for stuff from bell and founders for a while (with no luck, doesnt matter now) and now that i know its an hr away (less without damn silver spring traffic), this will be a shop i visit whenever i get the itch for some breakfast stout...waiting to see if they will be carrying hop slam and KBS next year.

Tucked away right on the border between Maryland an DC on Easter Avenue sits Morris Miller.

When you first walk in you feel the selection is going to be big but is actually the smallest in the store. This is primarily a wine place however two shelves are set for beer, you could miss them.

Selection is slightly better than average but not by much. You can find the usual things here, Victory, plenty of Sam Adams products, Heavy Seas, Flying Dog, Brooklyn, Bells and so forth. However you wont find any bombers and there foreign selection is very small and basic. Prices here though are actually very reasonable.

Good selection of bottles here. Going from memory they had the following craft beers: Bell's, Smuttynose, Harpoon, Unibroue, Allagash, Dominion, Hook & Ladder, Oskar Blues, Saranac, Butternuts, Brooklyn, Dogfish Head, Troegs, and many others I can't remember. The beer is kind of spread out through the store. They have a cooler full of 12 packs (lots of Sam Adams), which is to the right as you walk in. Then there is another cooler with mostly BMC, and an aisle just filled with 12 packs. The store is pretty large, but most of it is wine. The section with really good beers is not really in plain view from how you enter the store and I almost walked out before noticing it! There are about 3 rows worth of good beers (read: not BMC) in 6 and 12 packs. One of the is imports, the other two are American.

Prices were decent; maybe a little bit high. $10 for six packs of Dale's Pale Ale, for example. No mixed six packs allowed, and I didn't notice any bombers, but it's still definitely the best beer store I've found in bike-able distance from my new home in Silver Spring. And I have been looking. Most places around here only one like one cooler with BMCs and an occasional pack of Boston Lager, so this was a pleasant surprise. I will definitely be returning to this place.
