envisioned the old Joe's Record Paradise/Champion Billiards building as a brewery. The good news for Silver Spring is that their vision is becoming reality: Astrolabe Brewing is taking over the space. In addition to the retail brewery function Streetsense imagined would take advantage of the building's high ceilings, Astrolabe also plans to operate a rooftop deck seven nights a week.
Astrolabe's owners, Emma Whalen and Matt Cronin, say they plan to represent both their international backgrounds, and the Silver Spring community, in their products.
