I never knew this place existed. About 4 miles from College Park, they have plenty of dirt cheap parking in the adjacent lot (25 cents and hour). Colorful comtemporary interior, with two levels. I drank at the upstairs bar. Nice happy hour from 4 -6:30pm, with $1off pints and discounted food. I had a $3 quesadilla that was decent. All the beers are above average, and they had a nice selection when I visited. Impy Stout, Barleywine, IPA, 2 strong ales, Red, Coffee Stout, and a few others. The crowd was mostly regulars and business travelers when I stopped by. Worth a visit.

Unique place - restaurant / bar with large "general store" that sells novelites, candies, beer / wine. Food was very good, service at the table was also good. I was surprised that for a small place they had 10 of their own beers on tap. Samples were only $1 for 4oz. I tried 6 beers and really enjoyed all but 1. That was my first visit and a very good experience... will come back (even though it’s a little tough to get to).

Well worth the quick trip from DC! Quirky furnishings and exposed ductwork. Sort of family oriented, which I’m not so much into, but mid day durig the week this place is chill. The seasonal and specialty one offs are usually awesome, including their scotch ale and Van Damme Belgian strong. As a vegetarian, the menu offers some options, my favorite of which is the veggie pot pie. Serving sizes are massive, making the pricing seem a bit less salty.

Jeffin7 took me here. We ate upstairs at the bar. THey had a nice selection of beer - about 10 on tap (ok, one was just the stout served on nitro). The chicken satay appetizer was nice and spicy. Cool building - felt like a converted warehouse or small factory.

Hyattsville sucks, but if you can get past that, the place is excellent. Always terrific seasonals and special brews. They love to experiment and brew big beers. I think they’ve done a great job with the place on the inside. The onion rings are to die for. Knowledgeable staff. Unique.

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.

Cool place in a historic building. They had nine beers on tap, with a tenth being a nitro version of the regular porter, although they were out of one of the regular taps. Pretty good variety of styles offered as well. Food was good and so was the service. Definitely worth stopping by.

Like Jeff said, a semi-nice place in a fairly shady area. Inside is big and there’s actually quite a bit to do. Nice little bottleshop. Small bar to crawl up to. Big restaurant to eat in. Nice. The beers weren’t hit or miss, lots of em though. The food was great. I think I had a reuben or something. Chris had huge balls.

Made it there for the first time last Saturday. Was greeted by some very happy employees. Found a seat at the bar - happy hour prices on quesadillas. Pretty decent selection of their house brews, also liked that you can get pre-filled bottles downstairs in the general store (some bottles aren’t on tap), as well as growler fills.

definitely worth the short drive from DC if you’re in the area. casual and comfortable atmosphere with friendly staff. the food was very good and the beer was solid. visited here on a Friday evening and even though the place was busy, we only had a 20 minute wait to be seated.
