Franklin’s Brewery

Franklin’s Brewery Located in the heart of historic Hyattsville MD, Franklins is Prince Georges County’s first microbrewery, and the only combination restaurant, brewery, and toy store in the world. Franklins is a gathering place with deep roots in the Hyattsville community. In 1992, Mike and Debra Franklin purchased the former Hyattsville Hardware Co, a Hyattsville institution located on a dying strip of route 1, and opened Franklins General Store & deli, helping to recapture the spirit of bustling community activity. The deli soon became a popular lunch spot, and eventually outgrew its limited space. In 2002, Franklins closed the deli portion of the store, and opened a 200 seat brewpub, and doubled the size of the store.
