Silver Spring and Riverdale Park
There are many reasons to make a trip to this women-owned brewery located just across the DC line. Its Silver Spring barrel house and beer garden has lots of room to hang out over a pint or flight of beer. There’s happy hour weekdays from 4-6 pm, trivia on Tuesdays, and plenty more programming throughout the year. Plus, after maxing out capacity at its original location, Denizens opened up a production house and taproom near Hyattsville this past spring in order to keep up with the demand of its year-round Southside Rye IPA, Born Bohemian Pilsner, and Lowest Lord ESB. They must be doing something right.
The beer you shouldn’t skip: As the name suggests, Denizen’s Third Party Belgian-style tripel is a strong, slightly sweet take on a classic that’s sure to please any beer lover.
