Neat bar that delivers a cozy atmosphere with soft lighting, exposed brick and a long wooden bar. There’s also a few tables suited for a date night. The beer is of course mostly Stillwater on tap with half a dozen or so guests. Food was very tasty however portions were on the smaller side. Friendly staff. Overall had an enjoyable visit. This is another great Baltimore beer establishment.
Awesome place that Brian opened in Brewer’s Hill across the street from the old Natty Boh brewery. The menu will soon change to add more variety, but the food is very good, artisinal just like the beers poured. The staff is quite knowledgeable and friendly, and Brian is around as long as he is not gypsy brewing elsewhere in the world.
Very cool place enjoyed in the company of biggirlpanties, EricE, BrainLair, MrChopin. Ambiance is excellent- smaller, not cramped, no gaudy decor. Very simple exposed brick, nice lighting, wide tables and bars. You sit and drink communally. Service was top notch, quick, attentive, friendly. Tap list is large, featuring a good mix of beers. About 1/3 house beers from Stillwater, and 2/3 Belgian and German beers. Also had Victory Braumeister Pils on tap- a world class, hard to find Czech style pils. Food was excellent, not too expensive, came out quickly. Burgers on the croissants were delicious and the sous vide steak frites were out of this world. Really loved this place. Bottle list was smaller but well thought out though pricey. BA Cellar Door and BA Folklore 750s were $35. Most taps were $7-8. Best deal was $18 32oz pitchers of Stillwater Premium. Unfortunately no pitchers were allowed of Table Beer, which seems like an oxymoron. Between Stillwater Premium and Table Beer on tap, this is already a top beer place for me. Both were outstanding.
In an older, somewhat dingy, but obviously gentrifying area of town - small, sparsely decorated, but homey pub - a bit cramped for my tastes, as I like s pub where I can stretch out and read a book, but cozy enough - low lighting, dark hardwood, hip music playing at a moderate volume - quite a mix in the crowd of patrons, from young hipsters, to 30 something yuppies, to aging business types - small but creative menu with unique twists on some standard staples - sadly, I did not get to try the food because I had just gourged myself on crab cakes downtown and then pounded a few pints at Max’s beforehand - 20 beer taps, plus two draft wines - the majority of brews were from Stillwater (a mix of the standards and quite a few specialty brews), plus a few Evil Twin beers (for obvious reasons), as well as a handful of well selected locals and imports (Schlenkerla Fastenbier, fuck yea!) - small but well-selected bottle list as well, comprised mostly of imports - prices on the brews are rather high (from 7-9 bucks), which I would normally complain about, but given the quality of what you are getting, I will not bitch - however, that does make this more of a special occasion spot than a regular watering hole (for a guy like me, anyway) - servers were attentive, despite how busy they were, and, more importantly, they were very knowledgeable about the beers they were serving - certainly a must stop in Baltimore and, compared to the other places I have been in this town over the years, probably the best beer spot in town - if you are in (or even near) Baltimore, make a point to try to stop here.
Walked into Of Love & Regret after ten on a Thursday night. Dark and inviting with a lot of dark wood throughout and some framed poster sized Stillwater labels on the wall. Not a huge crowd at that time of night so we sat at the bar and perused the menus. Turns out we had missed the kitchen being open, and not by much, but the menu did look nice. Current menus are available on their website, but the majority of it was sort of classed up pub fare with a gastro pub twist, featuring starters like mac & cheese with smoked pork butt, duck tongues, beef tartare, crispy pig ears and moving into entrees such as sou vide steak, chicken two ways, and various fancy burgers and sandwiches. The draft list was the reason to be here however as six of the twenty taps were various Stillwater beers, ranging from the more common stuff like Stateside and Premium, to somewhat harder to find this like Kapoostje, As Follows, and the Mikkeller collaboration. The remaining taps ran a gamut from Anderson Valley, Victory, and Smuttynose to more obscure beers from Evil Twin and The Perfect Crime. Prices on pours do come off as a touch high with some of 10 ounce pours coming in between $7-9, but pints of the less rare things (Victory Braumeister, Schneider Original) were $6-7 which is fairly common now. There are also some Stillwater bottles on the menu, including some hard to come by things, but prices seemed a bit high for me. Service was excellent and the bartender while we were there (Ryan) was incredible. As it was relatively slow he had plenty of time to chat about beer and that man is quite knowledgeable and very passionate. Overall a great experience and I’d certainly stop in again the next time I’m in Baltimore.
Nice little bar and restaurant in Canton. Decent sized bar with a long table and some pretty small 2 seating tables. Bar staff were all very friendly, prompt, and knowledgeable about the beers. Sat down and was served a water without having to ask which is always a plus in my book, good eye on water refills. Half pours available on all the drafts which is nice. Went on Saturday right when they opened with brunch going, just a handful of people came in while I was there until almost 1 PM. Nice selection of drafts, mostly Stillwater beers/collabs and foreign selections. Drafts are a bit pricey but not super expensive. Had the Brewer’s Breakfast for food which was tasty but a bit pricey for the portions. Second floor has a very small bottle shop with some normally available Stillwater beers as well as some harder to find Stillwater bottles. Also a decent selection of foreign beers and a few Evil Twin beers. Looked like they have a third floor though I didn’t take a look. Very nice place, can see myself coming back when I have time and am in the area.
Narrow place with two floors and too few tables packed in. Only annoyance was that it was too crowded, but I can’t blame them for coming. The beer list has plenty of interest, and not just from a variety of Stillwaters. We were about to give up on finally getting a table when one appeared at the last moment. Had a tasty burger; croissant was gimmicky but good ingredients showed through. Impressions: The place is not quite sure how pretentious to be. It will settle down a bit, relax, and get better.
Great place to catch up on all your Stillwater needs. There were some great, uncommon beers on their list during my visit. Classy enough place to make non-beer drinking girlfriends happy. The food is very good. The store upstairs had a few Stillwater rarities. Good friendly service. Just wish it was closer to downtown.
Outside looked like we were initially in the wrong place, like a building from the 1950s that you’d expect to be incredibly dusty and full of old former union dock workers who are clasping their 35 degree cold fizzy yellow beer.
Wrong. The inside is a nice (though low-light) establishment, with a nice long bar and a huge community table. We were seated there. Plenty of room, so we weren’t smashed up against each couple on either side of us. Service was quick, waiter was very nice. Beers were good, and food was quite excellent.
