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.

This place is a diamond in the rough. From the outside youíd have no idea what lies inside. The restaurant/brewery is pretty sizable. They usually have 6 to 8 beers on tap, all of which are brewed on the premises. The food is pretty good, a step above your typical bar food. The service is always very good, the people are friendly and some are knowledgable about whatís on tap. If you stop in for lunch or to fill your growler, you have to check out their "general store". The beer selection is slightly below average, but I found a few gems I hadnít found anywhere else. They carry a selection of six packs in the cooler from various American micro breweries (approximately 40 different brands). The selection of dry singles is small and cluttered, but if you take your time to go through it thereís some good stuff. The prices were average. Franklins is unique, I wish there were more places like this out there. Stop in to have a good lunch, taste their selection, fill your growler and hit up the general store for some micros you might not have seen elsewhere.

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.

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 itís 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.

Like Jeff said, a semi-nice place in a fairly shady area. Inside is big and thereís actually quite a bit to do. Nice little bottleshop. Small bar to crawl up to. Big restaurant to eat in. Nice. The beers werenít hit or miss, lots of em though. The food was great. I think I had a reuben or something. Chris had huge balls.

Great place in a crappy crappy area. Casual place, mix of low key college students, professors/researchers, and families. The standard staple of beers are all solid nothing amazing but all pleasent and drinkable. There seasonals are a gamble I have had some that were great and some that were not so great. I love the food. The chili (they donít always have it) is some of the best that I have had, the thai fried ribs, the half chicken, there are many good options there. Great place to go for a meal and a few good beers.

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.

When I first went here last October the food was excellent, but since then I would rate it a notch lower. Itís very kid-friendly for a brewpub, and the shop next door has lots of interesting doo-dads as well as a good beer selection. The Anarchy Ale is my favorite, but everything Iíve tried has been good. I disagree with valejo on the Imperial Stout; it wasnít the best but I thought it was decent.

California Fusion in a dump like hyatteville. Not bad at all. Good beer selection, maybe 10 things they make with a few of them off tap at the moment. Happy hour on thursday night turns into college night so be warned. Starting to become comercial, hopeuflly not sacrificeing the beer too much.

I like this place a lot. Some of the beer is really good, but stay away from their Imperial Stout. I disagree with lamas, though: the food is excellent in my opinion. Try the Tai pizza or the spice-brushed ribs.
