Just opened in the high rise apartment zone in downtown Silver Spring. The address is the actual address of an apartment complex and Scion is part of the apartment complex with entrance facing East West highway. Park across the street in the parking deck. Probably will need to pay a meter.
Ambiance off the bat is more spacious than the Dupont location, larger bar area is welcome, and about 20 tables. Quick, friendly service. Tap list was impressive for opening day: Bruery, Elysian, Flying Dog In De Wildemann, Port City, Lagunitas. Solid. Food as with the other location is where it is at: Wagyu beef burger with fried pickles was divine, lobster mac n cheese with jalapenos surprisingly good albiet bizarre. We were disappointed with the spring rolls- nothing better than normal Chinese take out egg rolls. We were expecting Vietname rice paper spring rolls. Happy hour special got you half price all drafts until 7pm. But they do 4oz tasters here, which is great. We had dinner and spent $100 for five people: pretty solid. I hope this place does well as they deserve it and Silver Spring desperately needs an alternative to Quarry House Tavern for beer.

This place is in a bit of an odd location, surrounded by the generic high rises of suburbia. There is a covered public/pay parking garage across the street, but you can park for free in the Giant parking lot just around the corner. The beer manager knows his stuff, and does a good job populating the list with interesting local and regional tidbits. They are also starting to hold tap takeovers and other events. A welcome addition to a sparse neighborhood.

Solid place in Silver Spring for some beers and food. Not exactly a "beer destination", but they do a good job at the one in DC along with Crios(the neighboring restaurant they run in DC).
