Solid brewpub in downtown. Stopped in on a Sunday while they had their brunch buffet going on, didnít partake but it looked/sounded pretty good. Free parking in the lots scattered around the area, I used the parking garage across the street which is free on weekends and after 5 PM on weekdays. Standard brewpub look/feel. Friendly and prompt service. Only 4 of their house beers are available but they have a nice assortment of guest beers, a mix of macro and micro. A little pricey for a flight of the 4 house beers, $8.50 after tax. Solid stop if youíre in the area, would like to return to try the food if Iím ever back in the area.

Westminster is a cozy little town tucked away northwest of Baltimore whose prime time seems to have been thirty to forty years ago. Johanssonís isnít located near the exact center of town of a busy corner and in a well maintained building of yesteryear. There are multiple entrances depending on whether you plan to visit the Dining House, Down Under bar or Two-Headed Pheasant Draught House. The Dining House was our choice this particular Sunday afternoon. Inside is a hostess stand to the left and a bar to the right just beyond a banister. There was no one at the hostess stand upon our arrival and after a couple minutes of waiting and being ignored by the bartender, I decided to find someone who would seat us. We were finally sat in an area that seemed like a converted patio; painted red brick exterior walls to the interior and a newer wall now forming the exterior. We ordered drinks and food, and held patient conversation while we waited. The beers arrived and there was a seasonal, Colonial Ale. I inquired with the server about its intended style, which was promptly met with a "let me ask the bartender." She returned to say that it was like a brown... The beer was straw colored and had a certain note of sorghum; I was not satisfied with the answer so I questioned the bartender during our exit, though he had no better answer. Noticing a slip of paper describing it as having been produced for the íHops for Historyí project, I asked if that, coupled with its name indicated a historical re-creation. Finally, "yes", he said. In short, the staff is uneducated about the beer they produce. There are a few guest taps of good variety and quality to compliment the house selections. They are average beers served alongside better than average food.

Smack in the middle of town, street parking right out front was easy on a Saturday afternoon. Very traditional interior with lots of wood, and a bar thatís about a mile long. Staff is really nice, and very generous with the samples. An actual sampler flight of all four beers on tap (usually they have five, but they were out of the popular IPA). They had a dozen or so mostly interesting guest taps as well. Food is tasty. A worthwhile stop.

Stopped in last week while in town on business. A couple of their own brews on tap with a decent, if limited, selection of other brews on tap. I can imagine this place, and the bar downstairs, get quite busy being in the middle of a college town. The local beer was good if not exceptional. Their food is pretty good also, though it focuses mostly on sandwiches. People in the bar and working behind the bar seem fairly friendly. Not a bad establishment for being in the middle of nowhere.

Quaint old building in the center of Westminster, not too far from where the Ravens practice. This place used to be an antique store, and it looks like they might have kept a lot of the fixtures. Gives the place a nice, warm feeling. Service at the bar was very attentive. Food was standard issue and well prepared. They have a Sunday Brunch that is very popular. Taps have expanded to 20, of which 5 or so are dedicated to the house brews. Their cask conditioned Fall Porter stood out for us. They also have a downstairs bar but it was closed when we visited. A good choice if you are in the area. OíLordanís Irish Pub is right across the street if you want a change of pace.

I liked this place. Old British brown bar feel, high ceilings, dark, old wood panelling, and a freakiní awesome horizontal ceiling fan that looks like a bunch of canoe paddles. On Fridayís 4-7pm they have 25 cent oysters, which go so well with their cask stout. Beer was decent enough, service was curt and to the point, reminded me of beer wenches in Germany, but I enjoyed my visit otherwise.

Downstairs bar very dark with load music, upstairs bar small with medium noise, but not that much room. 4 beers of their own, and the bar had 3 guest taps. Their own beers ranged from poor to good. Dining room very beutifully decorated, set in an old building and very well restored, even the brewhouse fits in with the old setting. The food is quite pricy - pretty upscale. But even with the high prices my side dish of salad was really disappointing - even for US standards, which are well below the level you get in Denmark. The service was friendly, but didnít seem to know that much about the beers. Go here to get four ticks.
