The general store is a hoot, with tons of bizarre stuff (turkey leg hat anyone?) jam packed into a large-ish space. The beer selection is incredible, and rarities abound. Of course, they also do growler sales of all 10 beers on tap, and a few that have just kicked. Food in the restaurant was average. Beers are mostly pretty tasty, and you can do samplers in multiple sizes. Worth the quick zip from DC.

A neat place. Set up like a flashy BBQ joint, the general store is next door and is a thing to see. Lots of tourist items, toys for the kids, and the beer and wine selection is for real. I picked up a sampled pack from a Virginia brewery. Only beer I had while dining was the imperial stout, which was solid, and the BBQ was decent enough to satisfy me and my picky BBQ tastes. It doesn’t touch true Oklahoma and Texas BBQ, but it wasn’t an imitation like so many other places in the north offer.

Overall, a neat idea of having a brewery with the General Store. The beers were good and there was a variety of styles. I tried no food, but what I saw looked good. The wait staff seem very busy but do not seem to produce much.

Dinner stop while avoiding the conference dinner hell. Pretty interesting place with a two floor restaurant and a little kitch store wiht a number of bottles for sale. Food was solid, beers were pretty Meh from what I had. Service good though. Pay parking available, cheap and takes credit cards.

Located right downtown with a cheap parking lot immediately adjacent. Kind of a cool vibe. The menu was expansive and cheap, pub food, but I’m glad I didn’t eat given the fact the beer absolutely sucked and from what I saw, they didn’t seem to see the need to keep perishables cold. Bartender and hostess both seemed preoccupied. On the bright side, the store is cool, and is quite a nice bottle shop. I got several bottles including some that were out of stock elsewhere. They were on the pricy side. Overall it’s an interesting place, but not one I’ll probably be making again.

Finally, my 50th brewpub rating. Trekked over here down US1/Baltimore Ave through University of Maryland. Traffic is always heavy. Thankfully, this place is off the campus main area and has its own parking lot that you pay digitally for 25 cents an hour- super cheap. Interior is cavernous with odd lawn art decor. Funky/quirky vibe. Server was in a great mood, upbeat. Food was larger plate, lots of soups/salads/sandwiches for good prices some more expensive entrees like salmon that didn’t look as interesting. The Mediterranean "thingy" was very good though not sure how to eat it as the pita wasn’t big enough to eat as a gyro and not cut up so as to eat it in little morsels. Cole slaw actually very good. Beer was about 9+ taps of house beers only with a good dose of specialties and seasonals. Quality was average to above average. Their funky sour mash beer was very good, much better than the hoppy stuff. Pumpkin stout was disappointing. Flight of 4 samples was 5 and you can tack on more 3oz samplers for I’m guessing $1.25 each. So good value, good service, okay beer. Just out of the way unless you are around College Park a lot.

Pretty interesting place, takes me back, I use to love this place in College, but I hadn’t been here in years until I went this past weekend. Their beers are pretty solid, and the food is pretty good too. Hyattsville is not exactly a beer mecca (or a food mecca for that matter), but this place is pretty good. Don’t expect the employees to be very knowledgeable, but they try. I remember once the bouncer looked at my ID when I had been 21 for at least 5 months, and then argued with me for about 5 minutes that I wasn’t 21. As I tried to explain to him that my DOB was over 21 years ago I realized he wasn’t exactly a math scholar... Anyway, I have a soft spot for the place, as it was the only place within miles of the UMD Campus where you could get a decent beer.

As for the general store next to the restaurant, imaging a cross between the store at a Cracker Barrel and a pretty decent beer/wine shop. Yes, it is a weird combination, but it works.

Located in an old warehouse - and that goes for both the surroundings and the interior - both seems somewhat run down - in a run down part of town. Maybe the parking prices tells it all: 25 cents for 2 hours!!! why bother with a parking meter?!? But it’s a nice place for a train spotter, since the trains run right back of the bulding and they are visible from a lot of the tables. I found the service quite slow, and the food edible, but nothing special (were there for lunch). 9 beers on at my visit - many of them quite tasty.

Interesting place here. Restaurant vibe on main lever with sort of brewpub feel at the upstairs bar. General store was pretty nice with nice bottle selection including Brewdog Tokyo and some other nice brews. Had the Fish and Chips at the bar upstairs which was pretty good. Had a 8 beer sampler which was a hell of a deal for $8 when each sample was at least 4oz. The beers were pretty mediocre overall. They were out of the DIPA and IPA which was a little disappointing. Worth a stop.

Finally got to check this place out thanks to Travlr! Street parking along with a paid lot next door. Combination restaurant/bar with a general/gift store, pretty unique. Sat upstairs at the bar, pretty good and friendly service. Solid selection of a dozen or so house beers available in tasters and pints. Above average beers with a few nice gems. Tasty brewpub food with burgers, sandwiches, pizzas, etc. Pizza is solid and the fried chicken sandwich was fantastic. General store has a small but solid selection of craft beer to go, both bottled house beers and other craft beer. Pretty good value all around. Well worth a stop if you’re nearby or on a DC brewery tour around DC Brau.
