The Pike District isn’t only about the new; there’s also the historic. Hank Dietle’s Tavern on Rockville Pike is celebrating its 100 year anniversary this year. Dietle’s opened in 1916 as Offutt’s, a general store and filling station. Hank Dietle took over in the 1950s when the tavern served as a pit stop for drivers making their way down Rockville Pike. Deitle’s received the first beer and wine license ever issued in Montgomery County.
Washingtonian Magazine wrote a terrific feature about Dietle’s Tavern that you can read here.
