Surprising little joint. Some really interesting beers on the shelf...I found some Avery...which hasn’t been distro’d here in MD for a few years. (I seen several brews that were on the shelf for years) The selection is pretty respectable. Place was mostly frequented by lower-income types just scoring some hooch. I explored an unmarked area that apparently was suppose to be cordoned off.....they didn’t implictly ask me to get out of there but I was approached by three different employees all of whom I sure thought I was about to steal something? Ghetto? Yes. Risky? Sure, don’t know how old the beer is unless it’s clearly marked. Pricey? Hell no, great prices! Worth the trip? If you’re looking for a particular beer in the area and have tried total wine and Perfect Pour and your local joints? Sure, or give um a call to see if they’ve got what you’re looking for. 10% case discount.

visited to find fresh beer and walked into a store that was about 77 F with almost all of the beer out warm. way to take care of your products. I wouldn’t even risk a $5 purchase from this shop.

A small, cramped liquor store near the University of Maryland. The selection is pretty good and the service better. A nice store inside the Beltway.

Tons of decent beers are squeezed into this place, lots of singles and 750s, plus a back room of sixers. Good selection of local stuff, including the largest selection of Bruery I have seen, if that appeals to you. Worth the short trip from the district, or a good detour enroute to Baltimore.

Nice, unassuming gas station looking liquor store. Large wine selection and moderate Scotch selection. Focus is half and half craft beer and wine. Lots of American microbrews in six-packs with occasional bombers from DuClaw and Heavy Seas. Lots of singles from Weyerbacher, The Bruery, Jolly Pumpkin. Prices are pretty reasonable coming from DC. I think it’s definitely worth stopping by. They have BrewDog Sink the Bismark and Tactical Nuclear Penguin for a pretty penny but just FYI. Not bad. Agree with Ryan, staff won’t ask to help you and may not be interested. But that’s better in my book than being harassed every second like 1 West Dupont Circle.

Best place to buy beer in the area. Chevy Chase has a better selection but is a little pricier and is in DC so traffic is worse. Perfect Pour has a better selection but is MUCH pricier. Corridor Spirits in Laurel is comparable but I like the beer selection (and prices) here.

This is your must hit beer stop in College Park. Stays pretty up to date with most new East Coast brews, though a few may slip through the cracks. Solid international selection as well. Best prices in town, typically a dollar or so less than it’s underachieving peers. A lot of my beer knowledge was gained from purchases here.

Decent bottle selection. Best selection in the College Park area. Some slightly rare local stuff. Good micro selection and not much wasted on the macros.
