Had dinner here with the family. It was a decent mall restaurant as far as decor. The beer sampler was 16 strong with many rarities and IPAs/IIPAs. The food was well above average, the service was outstanding, and the overall experience was top notch. One of the best brewpub experiences I have ever had.

This is one of my favorite places to come. They have a full sampler which lets you sample 12 of their beers in 4oz. glasses for only around $15! Their food and beers are both delicious.

This place is situated in a local mall south of Baltimore in the Baltimore-DC corridor. Was traveling through the area on my way to Maine. Itís a rather typical brewpub with a patio and bar. I got there right when they opened. Didnít have much time so I took the recommendation of the bartender on which ones to order. Due to his knowledge and excellent customer service I ended up getting a few growlers to go. They were rather pricey but given the area, itís understandable. Iíd go back again if Iím back in the area.

Always a great experience. The food is very good. The selection of beers just keeps getting better; especially the seasonals. The release parties are always great fun. Service is fast and friendly. Staff is fairly knowledgeable. Sometimes too noisy and too crowded. Indoor and outdoor seating. Itís located at a HUGE mall and I hate malls, but thatís life. You go where you gotta go.

I tried the location out at Arundel Mills mall. Next to the theatre, parking is a pain. The beers on tap are all very good, solid beers. I really enjoyed the Venom Pale Ale, the stout, and the belgian quad. I just missed the Devilís Milk barleywine by two days. Darn! Decor is contemporary industrial, and the bar is separate from the restaurant...nice. Decent food and good happy hour specials. Happy hour all day and all night on tuesday, and itís PACKED. Only three miles from BWI rental car return, so itís easy to stop in before catching a flight.

Well I was stuck at BWI for a night and said why the hell not get some rating in. This place was above my expectations. They had 10 beer sampler, plus one also on nitro. The prices were what I would expect from a mall brewpub chain. The server was awesome, Kristy who normally works in the bar part took care of me. She also found time to sit down and chat about the beers. Iím not saying women donít know about the beers they serve, but she was outstanding. I suggest asking if she is working, plus sheís been there 7 yrs. The beers were alright, many winter styles still on tap in Feb. The bar was packed and I was eating so I ate in the spacious dinning area. I would recommend this place if your stuck anytime!

I donít normally even try these mall brewpubs. Itís not really snobbery so much as several previous bad experiences with them. The beer is often terrible, the atmosphere is that of a Cheesecake Factory, and the servers know beer like I know nuclear physics.
But DuClaw seems to be the exception on this and Iím really glad I went. I stopped by just before returning my rental car. The rental car center for BWI is actually just a couple of miles from here. Arundel Mills is one those sprawling messes of a suburban shopping mall, with a ring road, complex access points and ridiculous parking lot. DuClaw is on the northeast side of the mall by the googlaplex cinema.
Interior features a restaurant area and a smaller (but still relatively large) bar area off to the right. A sign alludes to smoking only in the bar area, but I believe smoking is no longer allowed at all. Bar area has TVs everywhere and features a nice patio area and big windows.
Twelve taps when I went, all of them very interesting. The bartender was very friendly and knowledgeable about most of the beers, being able to articulately describe them and compare them to beers from other breweries. They do samplers of six for $9 or of all 12 for $19. If you do math on that one, it doesnít come out, but most of the beers were too high gravity for me to dwell too long, so I got six of the more interesting ones.
The Sawtooth, I think, was the most interesting. Described as an Imperial Wit, it had a much stronger body than I would have expected. Serum (double IPA) was excellent, and everything else I had that day was very good. I wish I had known about this place earlier.
Whatís really cool is that they have custom coasters for each of their beers, even their seasonals or specialties. Each coaster has an artist design on it, mirroring whatís on the tap.
The sampler price was a little high, but pints were reasonable, going anywhere from $4 to $6 for the higher gravity beers. But they do a weekday happy hour from 3-7pm, where they take $2 off the beers. Something to check out, certainly. I wish I had know that before I came at 2pm.

Just like my local DuClaw but in a mall and with much better service. The rest here is just copied from my rating of the "Bel Air" (really Abingdon) location....
DuClaw beer is typically solid with a few worth getting excited about and a few duds; pretty typical brewpub stuff and some experimentation with the big beers. Always a good variety. Regular new releases keep it interesting (and release events always include a freebie), but none of the beers are location specific since none of the beers are brewed in house, I guess.The menu is very typical brewpub, focusing on meat, cheese, and fat, but done fairly well. Most prices are high Cheese is on nearly everything and if youíre vegetarian I hope you like salad.

Sat at the bar & had a sampler on Christmas weekend in the afternoon. Wasnít what you would call a beer geek crowd, a lot of tired shoppers so it didnít get much of an ambiance score from me. Got some funny looks from others who didnít even realize such a thing was available, although one woman ordered one after she saw mine. Beers were quite good as was the price-$6.60 for 7 beers. You get to try everything on tap in their sampler so sometimes you may get 10-12! Food choices looked good but did not eat. Service was very good, bartenders very patient explaining things to a non-beer crowd, even when they had to do it a few times in a row f/new patrons. Had an outdoor area for warm weather, but it overlooked the mall parking lot!! I will definatly go back for a beer event here, or try one of their other locations at a better time w/the atmosphere might be a little more happening!*******Rerate*******Been back here several time since 1st visit & have always had a good experence, just donít go during a busy time @ the Mall! Nice place in the evening after things quiet down a bit, although I still like their other locations better. They seem to have more of a local feel to them.
