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.

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 little brewpub in downtown Annapolis. Selection was kind of weak as far as taps. 7 House beers, 3 Dominion, and 10 or so other craft beers including Hop Devil, GI IPA, and Hoegarden. Had the fish and chips was decent, but kind of disappointing based on region of country. Reasonable prices. Worth a stop.

I had high hopes for this place, but I just canít give Ramís Head too much praise. The service has never been great, especially if you are sitting outside. The beer list is decent but not stellar. They have too many mediocre options on the World Beer Tour. Do you really want to have to drink Miller Light, Bud Light and other major American macro brews on the beer tour? The biggest thing for me is the overall vibe, maybe this is a problem that I have with Annapolis in general. It just doesnít have that ďwarmĒ feeling you want from a neighborhood bar. I think a bar needs that hard to define vibe that makes you want to sit down and chill for the evening. I have tried hard to be pro Ramís Head, but I just canít give it my support.

beer tour 09/20/08Ordered beer sampler, 6 beers, 5 Fordham, one Old Dominion. Light lager was surprisingly good, some hop taste and mild malt. Helles was similar in taste and nature. Copperhead was OK. Tavern ale had strong hoppiness, very good. Old Dominion stout was well done also. Food (Fish+Chips) was OK, lots of batter , not as much fish. My wifeís crab melt was pretty good. Outdoor location was very nice, and a beautiful night for it as well. Hostess was busy with several tables, but kept up with all of us. A pretty good value....

Visited with two other couple on a busy Saturday night, drinking at both the bar and with our dinners in the dining room. The beers, well, they all taste the same. The food well, it was just OK. The service was good at first, then steadily faded. Iím sorry, but I expect the wait staff in a brewpub to know beer, at least in basic terms. Instead, when my friend said she liked pilsners, our waitress recommended the Tavern Ale, probably their ONLY beer with any flavor, and a NW hoppiness, over a light beer and a lager. Unbelievable. What sealed it for me was the waitress reaching her arm thru my burrito to place someone elseís plate. Gross. Not that good, overall. A squandered location and beautiful brick building.

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.

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

Spent a few hours in the nice outdoor beer garden. The beer was very good, and the waitress was knowledgeable. Food was very tasty as well. The atmosphere is great, nice relaxed and friendly. A great place to have a beer.

The beer was decent, but nothing great. We went between lunch and dinner, so there were very few people and we only stopped in for a beer and didnít sample the food.
