The Matlida is also awesome.  I haven't had a bad beer from that brewery.

Funny, I was sitting at the "bar" at Whole Foods in Fairfax awhile ago and this beer geek was telling me about this great beer store he had happened upon up your way. He didn't remember the name, but he was trying to tell me directions. Now that I google map the Perfect Pour, I realize that's the place he was talking about.

So I'm having an online argument with my brother over which is a better beer town, Portland or San Diego.

Anybody have an opinion with some reasons?

Yes, the answer is Denver.

Compared to what?  DC?  VA? I guess so, but for MD it is about as good as it gets.

Corridor used to be gold standard in that area but PPour is better priced and the selection can't be beat.

Preferring wine much, much more to beer, this is the place that I'd like to check out sometime: Bin 66
Don't in the least expect anywhere 'best' in the country, or even near, but I'm sure they have some nice offerings. Beer selection looks crappy but their specialty is wine.

For beer and liquor... maybe even wine, when at the beach, try either Atlantic Liquors or Outlet Liquors, both on Rt. 1 (right side when going east) just before you reach the coast itself. Some I know prefer Atlantic Liqours but honestly can't say one is any better than the other.

Bonus points for being in Delaware: No sales tax! Of course, only significant if already at the beach or driving through.

compared to DC - specifically Magruders/Rodmans - then again I'm a bit of a cheapskate
