Great place, especially the store. In the latter thereís a great selection, with some odd Maryland stuff Iíve never heard of before. Lots of singles as well for tickers, and a bunch of discount old beers for sale. Some rare German/Belgian stuff as well. Friendly staff, both in store and restaurant. In the bar, the atmosphere is a little odd inside. Though it looks cool on the outside, inside is kind of like a glorified Dennyís - not a lot of character. Very friendly staff though. The beers were ok. I was expecting them to be a lot better as the ones they usually send to D.C. locations Iíve tried happened to be better. In any case itís a must visit if in the area.

The perfect setup; brewery, family restaurant with excellent food, growlers to go, five and dime style retro store full of toys, trinkets, glassware, beer, wine, etc. The family keep begging me to bring them back to this place (not normally the case with a brew-pub). Beer is good, food is too. Wish they were closer to my home. Pay parking M-Sat, but its pretty cheap (compared to surrounding areas).

This place is pretty awesome, its a store, brewery, and restaurant all in one. Store: very kitchy, lots of fun items to buy, including beers and make your own six packs. They sell their own beers, and many many others. Brewery: They make their own beers on site, lots of good ones. Restaurant: great value, very good. Pile of mussels for appetizers is a must, any pizza or burger will do. I tried the flight of 10 beers, for about $14. Awesome value.

Funky place. Pubby upstairs, restaurant downstairs, connected to a kitschy general store with above-average bottle selection. In-house beers are not very good. But their flights are priced at $1.25 per sample, which is crazy cheap for DC area.

Location is not in the most beautiful part of the DC metro area but the place was quite pleasant. The bar upstairs had ample seating. Around a dozen of their own beers on tap, all were decent, none were extraordinary. The food we ordered was very good -- definetly way better than ordinary brewpub fare. The shop in the same buiilding was a fun diversion. It had the biggest selection of hot sauces I have ever seen.

kraddel  (206) some beerplace , Belgium | February 14, 2015
Hard to rate all this in one rating . Upside , there is a brewery with mediocer beers, highway-restaurant feeling, good service and good prices . Food was nice as well . Recomended to pass by . Downstairs , there was a big shop , with some beers ( some ones I though were pretty nice to find ) , cider ( and Ice cider, which I havenít found anywhere around ) , wine, etc . prices downstairs were on the high side of honoust, especially given the location . Good place though

Finally, my 50th brewpub rating. Trekked over here down US1/Baltimore Ave through University of Maryland. Traffic is always heavy. Thankfully, this place is off the campus main area and has its own parking lot that you pay digitally for 25 cents an hour- super cheap. Interior is cavernous with odd lawn art decor. Funky/quirky vibe. Server was in a great mood, upbeat. Food was larger plate, lots of soups/salads/sandwiches for good prices some more expensive entrees like salmon that didnít look as interesting. The Mediterranean "thingy" was very good though not sure how to eat it as the pita wasnít big enough to eat as a gyro and not cut up so as to eat it in little morsels. Cole slaw actually very good. Beer was about 9+ taps of house beers only with a good dose of specialties and seasonals. Quality was average to above average. Their funky sour mash beer was very good, much better than the hoppy stuff. Pumpkin stout was disappointing. Flight of 4 samples was 5 and you can tack on more 3oz samplers for Iím guessing $1.25 each. So good value, good service, okay beer. Just out of the way unless you are around College Park a lot.

Well worth the quick trip from DC! Quirky furnishings and exposed ductwork. Sort of family oriented, which Iím not so much into, but mid day durig the week this place is chill. The seasonal and specialty one offs are usually awesome, including their scotch ale and Van Damme Belgian strong. As a vegetarian, the menu offers some options, my favorite of which is the veggie pot pie. Serving sizes are massive, making the pricing seem a bit less salty.
