Small place with a great vibe. Friendliest and most welcoming local beer lovers I have ever met, some of whom even chipped in to serve when the place got busy. Food was classy pub fare, good stuff. Beer list was big enough, and obviously put together by a guy who cares a lot about beers. Definitely worth going out of your way to visit - if I ever move to Baltimore, I want to live in this neighborhood and be part of the scene!

This is a nice, rather small place in Baltimore that does 3 10oz beers for $5 during Happy Hour. This includes nearly all their tap selections, and there is "no crap on tap" here; they relegate that to bottles. The taps were mostly Maryland brewers, though there were others. I highly recommend the crab dip and buffalo wings. This place could become my regular watering hole.

Dropped by on the evening of 22/05/12. Our B&B was 4 or 5 blocks away, so rude not too! Fairly quiet but those who were there made for a decent enough atmosphere. Bar tender was first rate, happy to give advice, samples etc. Decent selection, largely east coast on tap. Paid little attention to the bottle menu tbh. Well worth popping by.

Kind of an ideal neighborhood bar. The guys werer middle aged plus, the music a little too rock for them or anywhere. Around for 5 years, and Babe Ruth’s reincarnation at the bar. COmpetitive 3 pints for $5. About a dozen taps, mostly craft with a decent assortment. ABelgium, a stout, a Rogue. I was amused. Fresh beer, perfect pours. Nothing to blow me away, but a large friendly bar, home away from home in a rvived port area.

Rowhome sized bar just a few blocks off the square in canton. Narrow, but rarely overcrowded and most don’t know about the extra seating upstairs. The stars here are the staff and the "3-fers" (3 10oz beers for just $5). Limited number of taps, but they’re all craft beer along with 1 cask choice. Each weekday has it’s own associated food special and there’s a modest food menu if the special doesn’t interest you. Definitely recommend going on Monday with the 3-for-$5 special extending to 10pm along with $1 sliders and Alice working the bar.

Small and long bar, located by the safeway. Pretty good draft selection with good happy hour prices.

Exactly the type of place you would like to visit for great beer and friendly atmosphere. Owner and staff will win you over instantly. Selection is limited by the number of taps (18 + a hand pull) but constanty turn and are always fresh. Occasional firkin. Bottle selection is diverse, large and continues to grow. They have a "beer club" and sponser numerous tastings and pint nights year round. Hit and miss food selection, limited to standard pub grub. Should be included on any beer tour you might be planning in Baltimore. Short drive from the Inner Harbor and just around the corner from the Fells Point area of the city. Canton Square is a block away if you want to further indulge in local ambience.

The best beer bar in Canton and one of the best in Baltimore. Mahaffey’s is tucked away on a side street between Canton square and the Safeway. Warm pub ambience with tin ceilings, lots of dark wood, and a mural in the back. Wayne and his staff know their beer. Taps change as the keg kicks and Wayne stocks only premium bottles that rotate often as well. Food is well done pub grub. Gets a little crowded and busy on karaoke nights, but is usually just fine.

Dude, seriously, you’d be crazy not to visit this place when in Baldimur. I’m proud to be from Maryland, and I love Baltimore! I used the GPS on my iPhone to get me here after leaving Max’s on a too crowded Sat. night. There is no sign for this place(at least not that I saw) so it just added to the local neighborhood feel. VERY friendly bartender and knowledgeable too! Don’t remember what I had, but I was not left wanting. DO IT!

Visited with Travlr. Nice cozy 2 room bar with plenty of the locals hanging around. The staff is friendly, if not constantly busy. Music is not too loud - a plus in my book.
