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 itís a little tough to get to).

The perfect setup; brewery, family restaurant with excellent food, growlers to go, five and dime style retro store full of toys, trinkets, glassware, beer, wine, etc. The family keep begging me to bring them back to this place (not normally the case with a brew-pub). Beer is good, food is too. Wish they were closer to my home. Pay parking M-Sat, but its pretty cheap (compared to surrounding areas).

This place is pretty awesome, its a store, brewery, and restaurant all in one. Store: very kitchy, lots of fun items to buy, including beers and make your own six packs. They sell their own beers, and many many others. Brewery: They make their own beers on site, lots of good ones. Restaurant: great value, very good. Pile of mussels for appetizers is a must, any pizza or burger will do. I tried the flight of 10 beers, for about $14. Awesome value.

Well worth the quick trip from DC! Quirky furnishings and exposed ductwork. Sort of family oriented, which Iím 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 theyíve done a great job with the place on the inside. The onion rings are to die for. Knowledgeable staff. Unique.

Travlr  (2123) Washington, Washington DC | November 26, 2011
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.

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 youíre nearby or on a DC brewery tour around DC Brau.

Great place, especially the store. In the latter thereís a great selection, with some odd Maryland stuff Iíve never heard of before. Lots of singles as well for tickers, and a bunch of discount old beers for sale. Some rare German/Belgian stuff as well. Friendly staff, both in store and restaurant. In the bar, the atmosphere is a little odd inside. Though it looks cool on the outside, inside is kind of like a glorified Dennyís - not a lot of character. Very friendly staff though. The beers were ok. I was expecting them to be a lot better as the ones they usually send to D.C. locations Iíve tried happened to be better. In any case itís a must visit if in the area.
