Always rate places relative to the local beer scene. Gillys is IT. Very local place but welcoming to the outsider. Both consecutive nights I was there it was clear that all others were local and known by the bar staff. This did not stop one bar tender from answering one of my beer questions by getting a bottle and pouring me a sample. Sure, they all do this from the tap but how many open bottles? Great service the following night when the bar keep happily broke a sixer to allow me to take a local back to the hotel. I'll be back for sure

Unreal how much more they charge then their neighbors. Iím pissed I used to buy beer here. Iíve gotten old ass singles and all of them were over priced. Screw you Gillys.

One of the few places to grab craft beer in the Rockville area, behind the main drag on Rockville Pike. This is very close to the Twinbrook metro stop. Next door to Urban BBQ. Place is pretty cramped, lots of beers on high shelves throughout the store. A good amount of beer in fridges. Decent Belgian selection with Scottish, English beers. Can find some interesting stuff here. Only problem is the price level here, which is out of this world. Completely off the wall, 70-100% higher prices than normal. Laughable. Will never need to come back. If you are buying beer here, you are getting ripped off.

Stopped in while in Rockville for other reasons. Ambiance is pretty good, part small deli with good food, part bar with taps, part bottle shop. Selection was above average. Prices are INSANEly high for the most part. Some domestic things line Weyerbacher seemed in line or within a buck or two of my typical price. But, and I hope this was worse case scenario, Allagash Four 750ml - $27.49. Are you serious? I pay about $18-19 a bottle FULL RETAIL, and as little as $15-16 per bottle when buying a 6-bottle case (under $100). So congrats, I didn't buy much if anything. Had something to eat, drank a beer on tap, bought a mix six pack. Unlikely to shop here much but may stop in from time to time for a bite as it's across from Guitar Center.

Points deducted because itís in Montgomery County, so there are some things they canít control. Amazing selection and amazing food. Prices are high, but see above for reason.

Great selection for a county controlled area but a bit expensive. Seems to always smell like old french fry grease. Love that you can enjoy a beverage while you shop.

Hereís the deal with this place...they have a good beer selection, kickass sandwiches, and itís easy to get to. The bad side...to go beers cost a ton, craft drafts are pretty high. The best thing to do there is grab a groupon or, and this is really the best thing to do, get there on Thursday night when thereís no corking fee for bottles. You can get out of the house, have a couple good craft beers at 2-4 bucks a piece. That is a sweet deal.

A nice deli meets beer store in a nondescript Rockvillle, MD strip mall. The selection is decent, prices a tad high, but singles available, a few taps for those who want to grab a pint, and Italian style sandwich. Next door is Urban BBQ, a great BBQ joint for those close to the Twinbrook Metro. Visited Sept 2010.

Small place. Selection is decent, but wonít knock your socks off. Prices are a little higher than average. What I like about this place: taps on site--have a pint while you browse; the food is pretty good--I recommend the brie and ham sandwich with maple syrup, itís ridiculous; the staff is super friendly, conversational, and knowledgeable, and they are happy to break a sixer for you if you just want to take a single; finally, you can sign up for a very handy email newsletter that keeps you posted on new arrivals and rarities, and in-store events like tastings. Very enjoyable.

Smallish place with a lot of beer, including a bunch of interesting stuff. 3 taps when I visited, a handful of tables, deli sandwiches. Nice BBQ place next door. Could make an afternoon of this place very easily. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Prices are very high, even considering the area.
