Walked here from the harbor. Lunchtime visit. Bar full of grads on our visit in may, makes sense as there was some sort of graduation near by. Seemed under staffed. Draft last was decent, more of a quantity over quality list, but I was able to find a couple new local ticks for the collection. Food was fine, but nothing special.
Parked a block away. Nice open place with high ceiling. More of an adult place compared to Max’s. service was good. Selection was quite a bit of taps, but nothing really special. Bar was half way full on a Wednesday evening. Pricing was pretty good. Nice place to come back to.
Visited on Fri Mar 11 and Sat Mar 12 in the afternoon. Place is about 5 blocks north of Camden Yards. Nice open space with about 40 beers on tap. Had a good selection of American crafts. Staff was very friendly. Changed the menu each afternoon so you always knew what was on. A great spot and highly recommended when in downtown Baltimore.
Very impressed. Alewife is a crackin’ pub in downtown and about a 10 block walk south of The Brewers Art. The tap selection was solid with a good mix of hoppy, stouts, sours and even a mead from B. Nektar. The lady tending the bar was great, really friendly and chatty. Food menu looked awesome however I didn’t eat this time. Attractive building with an inviting interior setting. Well worth a visit.
Popped in here on a Baltimore pub crawl. Newish looking, polished place with a good number of taps. Not quite as interesting a list as Max’s but some good stuff here. A little far from other good beer destinations and the street outside is a little on the sketchy side.
Been a few times while in Baltimore for events. Nice interior with a bunch of tables and a small bar, never too busy the times I’ve gone. Very nice draft list and a good bottle list. Decent prices. Food is mostly great. Bartenders are mostly friendly and attentive, though at times it can take a bit to get their attention. Definitely a spot I’d return to when I’m in the area.

Pleasant and comfortable atmosphere. 40 taps full of a good rotation of craft brews with a good regional selection. Service at the bar was excellent. Prices seemed a little high for the beers but not unreasonable. Went back a second time and ordered food. The menu was not extensive, but had some unique items and everything that was ordered by my group was excellent. Update Feb 1, 2015: I’ve been here about eight times now and this place always has at least 3 taps that I haven’t had before and the rotating food menu is absolutely outstanding. I’ve had a few servings of seafood items that are invasive species to the local area that tasted absolutely delicious and that seems like a great idea.
