Interesting place. The first reaction to this place could either be that it is a nice cozy location, like a real tavern, or it could be a reaction that the place is just a little "run down". I move toward the former.
Service was not too bad, and the staff was friendly.
Suprisingly they have a pretty good selection for what youíd expect. Didnít have time to catch a bite to eat, but probably would have if not for the movie I had to catch.
Its a cozy hole in the wall. Not a great beer selection but you should always be able to get at least a few good local brews. Very good burgers and sandwiches. Nothing at all fancy but a nice place if you are a local or have some time to kill in Silver Spring.

I had a great time here. Lotís of great beer on tap, much of it local, which is a big plus with me. A very extensive bottled collection as well, categorized by country - changes regularly. Definitely lives up to its reputation of the best beer selection in Montgomery County. Pretty decent bar food as well, specialize in tater tots, fried pickles are great with a hot dog. This place is a nice basement dive bar with themes avery day of the week. Nice music venue on thursdays.
