Large bar with plenty of seating that was open either behind a long bar or near it. A few bottles coolers littered with assorted awesome beer and a tap list that was without question phenomenal. They were just coming off a Belgian fest so many of the beers were Belgian or Belgian style. Service was quick and knowledgable but not necessarily super friendly. Got the impression that itís a locals bar and thatís the way they like it. Staff were having long conversations with various regulars. Nothing wrong with that, just isnít the greatest experience when you arenít one of the regulars. I had a shrimp quesadilla which I expected to be sub par for some reason but actually was fantastic. Overall a good bar

Great Beer selection! Best I have ever experienced. Music was way too loud though....but the beer was worth stopping by

This is great bar as far as the quantity and quality of beer goes. Thereís not much to say good or bad on the atmosphere, and honestly, there isnít much to say about this place that hasnít been said already. It is a must stop when in Baltimore.

Well worn ambiance with lots of character. Great beer menu and a knowledgable bartender. Food was nothing special.

Visited to have a few beers while in the area and they do not disappoint. Extensive draft selection with great choices -- main limitation is most likely because of Maryland. Bar service was great -- very prompt and helpful. Pricing is fair for the area and the ambiance is appropriate for a good beer bar.

Interesting crowd on a Friday night. Lots of blue collar and "bro" type people were here - middle-aged union dock-worker/firefighter/retired police guy hitting on out-of-towners next to me.

Draft list was pretty good - about on par with some of the best places in DC. Bottles in fridges look pretty good, but I didnít see a bottle list. It sounds like this place is a huge hit during beer events. Gets pretty packed in the front bar - took a little bit of time to find a nice, not-so-loud spot to order from and enjoy our beers.

Great place. The next best thing to Churchkey in the Baltimore-D.C. area. Tons of taps with all kinds of stuff on. Sample sizes are very cheap here too, with Mikkeller tasters for under $4 - a better deal than Churchkey. Screens all over to watch the World Cup on. Tons of bottles too but I didnít even get to that list. Good service. Definitely a must-hit in Baltimore, in a cool neighbourhood.

Drove up here from College Park, Maryland because it was the top rated place in the state. And yes, they have 140 taps. The beer list looked longer than a sushi menu. This is one of the few places I have failed to try every new beer on tap for me. This was in part because everything was kind of expensive, though. Tasters are priced at around half of what a full pour goes for, and this adds up fast. I had about 13 tastes and a (delicious!) sandwich, and paid about $60. I could not afford to do that 3 more times. Service was solid, very friendly and professional. Cool looking place, pretty spacious, long bar, with a pub-like feel to it. Driving through Baltimore to get to the location was hell. Found free parking in a residential area a few blocks away (had to move the car every 2 hours though). A pretty impressive place overall, but my wallet was crying as I left. Also, driving through Baltimore is just awful.

Been here a few times at the bar and have always had a great time. Two floors though Iíve only sat at the bar on the main floor. Tables around and service is all through the bar. Always been able to snag a seat even when itís a bit busier, though I havenít been around when itís super busy. Service has always been great, bartenders are great at coming by when they see my beer getting low without me needing to get their attention. Lots of varied drafts and happy hour specials on 32 oz beers. Havenít looked at the bottle list but looked like a nice selection from the coolers. Only (very) minor gripe is most beers are served in standard pint glasses. Think they do taster pours though itís not advertised on the list so Iíve never thought to ask. Food is good and ranges from average to great, mostly your normal pub fare. Definitely be back when Iím around, probably my favorite bar in Baltimore.
