The house seasonals are some of the best in the region, especially the Wisteria Wheat and the Calvinator. Other seasonal wheats are also top quality. My favorite year-round house beers are the Helles, Blue Oyster Stout and Tavern Ale. Locals prefer the Stale (youíll have to ask). Nothing beats a Wisteria Wheat with an order of calamari and everything nachos in the beer garden. This place has something for everyone. Outside dining, friendly bar atmosphere, "dungeon" bar, restaurant dining and an intimate live music venue featuring internationally recognized acts. Great happy hour deals and local music outside on the weekends and in the basement later in the evening. One of my favorites.

Thought I had rated this already. The outdoor area is gorgeous, with great plantlife and vines all over the place, and nice low level lighting also. The beer selection was 5-6 strong, ranging from average to very good. The food was outstanding. I got seafood pasta that was just loaded with seafood. Well worth a trip.

My hometown brewpub. This has a very nice beer garden in the back with overhanging vines providing shade in the summer. They also have outdoor heaters when it is cooler. The basement bar is dark, old and perfect for winter drinking days. Lots of great, very old German beer coasters line the ceiling. The house beer can be tremendous. The Helles is wonderful--expect much better than you get from the bottle version, as the bottle is pasteurized. In the draft version, you will see some real genius. Their seasonals can be remarkable as well--the Calvinator, Maibock and the Pils are especially tasty. They also have bottles, but the variety hews close to the popular good imports (Ayinger, Youngs, etc). This is a place I can take my young daughters during the day as well as a great place for a night out alone with my wife.

Decent place to stop buy if you happen to be in the Annapolis area. Decent bar style food, live music every night, and a good selection of beers.

Nice place with good service and great prices. Very few people there on a monday night, even though they had happy hour and live music. 7 of there own beers was on tap and they where pretty good.

Pretty cool bar in the Annapolis historic area that is quite the local hangout. Lots of taps- probably about 15 taps but lots of duplicates so really only about 8-10 beers on tap at any given time. This is the place to try a lot of the Old Dominion / Fordham beers, which are pretty hit or miss. Iím not sure on how frequently they rotate kegs but there seemed to be some seasonals and oddities on tap when I was there. Food is very nice- family style restaurant with some good stuff. Bottle list is existent, but didnít see anything of tremendous interest. 200 bottles on the list is really pushing it- not sure who put that there. 50 tops. No way 200 lol. This place is not expensive, especially compared to places in the area. If you are looking for a local hangout with pretty much only local beers on tap, this is really the place to go in Annapolis.

Annapolis is very fortunate to have the Rams Head Tavern, thereís nothing else like it here. Itís located in the historic downtown area in an interesting, and large, building that is actually a stop on the walking ghost tour of Annapolis. There are several parts to this pub and is the largest in town. Their beer(Fordham) is OK / Decent (I have not had all of their brews) and they have a pretty good selection of beers from around the world(over 100). Check out the beer garden out back itís a neat spot. Also try the basement pub, cramped but friendly. The food is generally great and a little pricey too. I like their crab dip and crab melt sandwich. You can get growlers to go here because they do some brewing on site. DEFINATELY the first, and probably the only, place you need to go to drink good beer in Naptown

Good selection of beers, not extremely rare or anything, but much more than you can find at a typical bar. House beers are decent, plus many bottled internationals. Good food.
