Large place with a generous bar area, dining area, and a separate bar area perfect for hosting events. During the warmer months, thereís a large seating area out front, which is nice even if the view is mostly Baltimore traffic. Inside glass walls provide views of the brewing area downstairs which includes some nice vintage equipment. Beer selection is love it or hate it based upon your feelings towards the Olivers/Pratt St house beers, which make up the majority of the offerings. Some are featured on nitro or hand-pumped casks. Food is solid with good burgers and thin-crust pizzas. Tensd to only get crowded when there are events across the street at the convention center.

Been here a few times now, each certifying my luke-warm feelings more than the last. Heavy brick vibe, plenty of walls break place into bar, restaurant, museum(?). The beer always disappoints and Iíve never gotten past rampant faults like DMS, diacetyl, autolysis rampant. Ate only once, so-so suburban crab pretzel. Thankfully offer a ton of seasonals, but no small-size pours. And service is weird, servers juggling us all over despite never leaving bar area. Will invariably return, but my mind is made up.

Stopped in here with a few ratebeer people for our guys night our pub crawl. Service was odd, we had three to four different servers. Decently knowledgable about the beer on tap. Big minus for the place was that you cannot order sample sizes/small pours of their seasonal and specialty beers, only of their preset "light" and "dark" 4x4oz tasting flights. Food was large plate, upgraded Chiliís style. Had a stuffed cheese bagel with cream cheese and lump crab meat. Filling, heavy. Beers on tap were aplenty, maybe 20+ different house beers. But the quality of said beers was extremely low. Nearly every one was undrinkable, very chemical and almost toxic tasting with a few that even tasted like super glue. Some of the worst beer Iíve ever had in my life...and 15 in a row at that. Needs to hire a new brewmaster. Ambiance is typical English/Irish pub. TV/sports bar almost. Biggest plus was that it was mad cheap, $25 for trying 11 beers or so.

Came here a total of three times throughout a weekend that my wife where my wife, sister-in-law, and I came down to Baltimore. As they were doing Otakon and I was not, it left plenty of free time to explore Baltimoreís beer scene. And as a result I started the main chunk of my time at Pratt after dropping everyone off. My initial bartender was a bit ill-informed as I asked if they did samplers and was told no, but they did double halves of two beers for something something. So I ordered small pours, and then got a more competent bartender (one of the nice things about the place is that because of the large space and crowds, there never seemed to be less than three bartenders on at a time, and all will service you if you catch their eye). So I eventually switched over to doing sampler flights of 4x4ozs at a time (reasonably priced) and made my way through the tap list. In terms of food itís a step above (but not the largest step) the typical bar/brewpub fare. I got the daily starter of a local heirloom tomato salad and coupled that with a quesadilla. The salad was decent enough, but nothing to write home about, which is a touch sad given the greatness of farmerís market heirloom tomatoes at that time of year. Overall though, service is pretty solid, food is good, and beers (with 16 on tap and a cask or so) run the gamut style wise and offer a good variety. While this might not be the reason to go to Baltimore, itís definitely a place to visit once youíre there.

Probably my favourite place to drink during my weekend in Baltimore. Very nice beer, superb service and a chilled relaxing atmosphere. Great place to drink beer and watch the game, they even put on the Liverpool match for me, which was much appreciated. Heartily recommend this place.

Nice location in the inner harbor - typical American brewpub - faux British pub - large televisions on all the walls - menu of standard pub fare of middling quality - fairly good selection of mostly British-style ales - they seem to excel at the session styles - servers left no impression one way or the other - attentive enough - prices were fair - worth a stop if in the inner harbor.

Nice selection of beers, and very happy they have several cask ales. The presence of nitro-poured beers is a pretty neat bonus as well. The food Iíve had has always been pretty good, though like many places downtown theyíre a tad pricey. Service from the wait staff is typically well above average, and most servers seem well versed on the beers. Only one bad experience w) staff, and that was when a young female hostess made it obvious that she considered seating my wife and I a terrible, bothersome task. Looking forward to their Spring Real Ale Festival!

This is an old, historic building in Baltimore with loads of history. Steve and Derek still brew in a brick-walled kettle with ceiling beams well below 6í. The interior is fairly open with a large bar and many taps. There are usually 3 hand pump beers, a few nitro beers along with the typical CO2 delivered beers. The servers are helpful and friendly. The food was pretty good and well-priced.

Nice little spot right on Pratt St near inner harbor. Sat outside. Service was decent. Nice selection of beer, but the only two I really enjoyed were the Red and the IPA. Food was average, although there was a lot of choices on their menu. I wont rush to go back, but I wont be staying away either.

Spent a couple hours here on a recent visit with some esteemed colleagues who also enjoy the kiss of the hops. Kind of an unassuming atmosphere, typical bar you might see just about anywhere (though if youíre traveling, this oneís right next door to convention-land, as is Alewife). But the Olivers offerings I had were very satisfying in general, with a good range of session beers, casks, seasonals, and the like. Pretty good joint that doesnít seem to get a lot of run.
