Great service, good selection, iffy location pretty much sums up this store imo. The staff the 2-3 times I’ve been in have been more than helpful, downright chatty and cordial in fact. They often have a beer available for tasting as well. Having a tap in a ’store’ is pretty cool as well, nice intersting touch and get an an additional point for ambiance than the behind a stripmall location really warrents. They opened after I lived a few blocks away ... so it never really had the opportunity to be my regular, though it would have been.

Tucked away in a strip mall. You walk in and instantly are amazed. Lots of bottled beers to buy in 6 packs and singles, but also a couple beers on tap for sampling or pints. You can drink any beer there for a corking fee. The staff is very friendly and gave us samples of everything they had on tap. Prices were a bit high compared to other places. Nice fun place.

What a wonderful find! The owners know and respect craft beer and try to keep their shelves filled with it. All Dogfish Head beers can be had, along with several regional beers, such as Clipper City. Gillys is also a deli where one can avail themselves of tempting sandwiches and artisan cheeses. Don’t let the dreary strip mall location fool you. Check it out and keep it open. Rockville and the thirsty citizens need a place such as this.

I had to update my review. I wish I could politely communicate to their owns that this store has higher beer prices than anywhere I’ve ever seen in the continental United States, even in NYC proper. I like the food at this place, and treating it as a bar, especially on Thursdays when there is no bottling fee for singles, is great. Plus you can bring in food from Urban next door too. But I would never ever ever stock up on beer here. They have the absolute highest prices I’ve ever seen at any store anywhere in the United States, be it because of Montgomery County distributors, or their rent, I do not know. The owners are nice, but I can’t treat this place as more than just a bar where maybe I’d take a single or two home.

Not a bad little shop in a pinch. Pick up a beer on tap while you shop. They had Troegs Rugged on tap. They had just kicked a keg of 120 minute. Pretty decent selection. Nothing that was a surprise but you could easy find a few sixers or 750s to take home. Prices high, but that is Rockville for you. However, the cheese counter and sandwiches looked great. Picked up a few cheeses to take home with me. Few tables to sit at while you enjoy the beer. They will also open any beer in the store, but tack on another 2 bucks for that luxury. Over all not too bad a place. WOuld not go out of my way to go there, but if you are in the neighborhood, it has a nice selection. Funniest part: they had a case of 120 minute by the register. $9.99 a piece of $234.78 for the case. Who needs a case of 120 minute?

Recently opened little place. Kind of tucked behind the main strip on (the rockville pike), but definitely worth a visit. prices are about a dollar too high across the board, but the convenience and selection makes that okay. plus you can sample whatever they have on tap while you cruise the selection (only one brew at a time on tap, but they change it pretty regularly and it’s always something good). the owners are VERY nice and accommodating, just ask and you shall receive. their selection is really broad, everything from american micros to macros to high quality belgians. i saw DFH, Brooklyn, Ommegang, Victory, Urthel, Pilsener, Rogue, Chimay, Kwak, Gulden Draak, La Trappe. and really, if you don’t see it, ask them and they’ll try to help. also, they have pretty good sandwiches.

These guys just opened a little while back. Maybe 6 months to a year. The owners are very nice, and big fans of beer. They keep improving, they always have something to sample, and they are making an effort to bring craft beer to MoCo, where it is sorely, sorely under available. Prices are a little high, but not exorbitant. Selection is continually improving, and they now have beer on tap. They also serve food, thought I haven’t tried it.
**Update - I’ve had the food now (Meatball Monday!) and it was good and a nice price.

If you go here, be sure to go next door and try one of the best BBQ places in the D.C. region.
