Denizens Brewing Co.
There are many reasons to make a trip to this woman-owned brewery located just across the DC line. The core lineup sticks to tried-and-true styles, including a hazy IPA and a Czech-style pilsner. Both its Silver Spring and Riverdale Park (near Hyattsville) beer gardens have plenty of room to hang out over a pint or flight of beer while enjoying pub grub like pretzel bread with dipping cheese or a plate of fish and chips.
Beers to try: 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. Denizens also makes MoCo hard seltzer, which comes in vacation-y flavors like pina colada, key lime, and strawberry cucumber.
