May 18, 2018

You can get the best locally made craft beer near these apartments in Silver Spring.

Denizens Brewing Co. is the neighborhood place of Silver Spring. Glowing online reviews are a testament to the quality of its food, drinks and service. A warm, friendly atmosphere and fun events top off the experience. And the best part? It’s less than a 10-minute drive from any of ROSS’ downtown apartments in Silver Spring.

This place is awesome!  Great vibe, great service, great beers!  I didn’t eat anything, but I will next time!  And there definitely will be a next time! It is a legit working brewery with all the awesome smells that go along with it!” says David R.

What to Eat

Oddly enough, the most recommended menu item at this hidden gem is the Crispy Brussel Sprouts. Crispy and flavorful yet light, they’re the perfect side to a more caloric entrée. The West Indian Wings and Chicken Tenders are well reviewed as well. And, no surprise here, the Parmesan Fries seasoned with rosemary are a total hit!

Meeting People (and Dogs)

Denizens is filled with friendly characters, from helpful bartenders and waiters who go the extra mile to “a surplus of adorable babies and dogs” as Jen R. put it. You can count on a good time and maybe meeting some new friends at Denizens. It’s a place that people go to connect with the community, not just get beer. “Our bartender was super friendly and inviting, in fact the whole staff seemed to be that way,” said Meagan P. Denizens’ servers are attentive to regulars and newbies alike, “plus, they are…dog and family friendly,” added Grace M.

Drinks to Try

Denizens brews a variety of delicious beers, from the darkest Russian Imperial Stout to a very pale Peach Berliner Weisse. Drink menu standouts include the Big Red Norm American Red Ale, the Third Party Belgian-Style Tripel, and the Born Bohemian Czech-Style Pilsner. In addition, Denizens carries wine, mead and cider that are produced locally in Maryland.

Hang Out Here

The rooftop beer garden is a popular spot during the summer. String lights hang above picnic tables, illuminating carefully chosen beer flights. Events usually take place here. Try Sunday morning yoga, Tuesday trivia night or enjoy some live music. If you’re just popping in for lunch, you can also use the ground-floor patio space.


In addition to in-house events, Denizens has been known to host special events for birthdays, anniversaries and the like. Consider this hidden gem for your next big party.
