My first time at a satellite DFH location. Much more generic than Rehoboth, with a good variety, but no brewpub one-offs like the Delaware location does. Still, thereís not much else in this area, so itís worth a stop.

Alehouse 75, Festina Peche and Midas Touch on draft, thatís what I had during my visit. $1.50 off pints 4-7pm, discounted happy hour food as well. Service was great, friendly and flirty, quick to bring drinks and food. The atmosphere was average, the place is stuck out in a corporate park so thereís a lot of grinders who come here for cheap food and take up a 4-seat table with their fat butts, but otherwise it was enjoyable to have a few drinks here. Might come back if they put out a new beer or two. The hummus was decent but not superb, better than most supermarket brands, though.

I have finally visited all three DFH Alehouses with our stop here today. This one is two-story and could be disguised as an office building. We were seated promptly but unfortunately our server had many tables, so service was slow. The beers were fresh, though a bit cold, and the food was awesome (as it is at all their places).

Stopped in for lunch prior to a wedding. A large restaurant spice with dark wood accents throughout. Server we had was good if not particularly knowledgeable. There were a large number of Dogfish head beers available on tap and in bottles. Food was good but nothing to write home about. The prices were a bit steep IMO. A nice stop but nothing special.

Good food, service was fine, neat little bar (though we sat outside on the patio on a lovely day). But youíre not really there for any of those -- itís the beer, and the beerís DFH, so if you should be a very happy camper. At least, until you see the bill and realize the snifters of WWS and 90-minute were $9 each. Iíd also be happier if they offered up more stuff that you canít find elsewhere.

Not nearly as impressive as the Rehobeth location, but still a laid back, beachy feel that is difficult to achieve in the D.C. metro area. Cool decor, much like the stuff in rehobeth. Of course the selection of beer is rock solid. The green mussels and canary for one pizza were wonderful. Our waitress was friendly and attentive, but spread way too thin. Itís really all about the beer with me, so it was a pretty darn good experience overall. Iíll go again!

First trip to the Gaitherburg location. Small bar area that was packed for a Friday. The service was good though. The bartender was jokingly a dick to the non beer drinkers which is always appropriate in this sort of establishment. Beer was good and food was good but it is very expensive. I wasnít surprised but someone else may be. Worth a stop if you want some real beer.

Cozier than the other two area DFH brew houses with a nice outdoor seating area. Knowledgable bartender. Great pizza.

Like the place. A little nicer/upscale than I was expecting, but quite a nice large bar as well in addition to the patio and dining area. A fishing city kind of feel, although the mahi-mahi wasnít so hot on my ceasar salad, much like the dressing rather bland. My girlfriends burger was one of the best Iíve had in a long time, and the calamari was quite tastey. Waiter was new, had no idea what beers where and if they were availbile, it wasnt until my third attempt and his third trip to the bar before he brought a beer I asked for.

Great place, only drawback is that I would love a few more choices... Maybe just more seasonals in lieu of all of the real eclectic specialty brews and do something about the acoustics... Can be too loud to talk. Excellent food... Never disappointed in many visits. Value is decent, probably good for the area. Dogfish beer is consistently good and they have alehouse 75 on tap typically which is a favorite. Service is always good as well. Well done.
