Stopped in on a warm Baltimore day for an afternoon beer; the AC had the building down to maybe the low sixties and it was rather uncomfortably cold for people wearing summer clothes. The vibe of the bar is a tidy, old-time English pub with lots of brass and black, while the back dining room is a cold, dim white tablecloth setting. The food menu is upscale European fare, with possibly the highest prices and displayed culinary ambition Ive ever seen in a brewpub environment. A small handful of house beers on tap, somewhat eclectic and leaning toward Belgian styles; good quality if not outstanding. More impressive is the compact, high-quality bottles list where top flight breweries such as De Dolle, Schlenkerla and De la Senne are represented for reasonable prices. Somewhat scattershot, but well-meaning service during a seemingly unexpectedly busy afternoon happy hour. If a little disjointed of a concept, this is for sure a top place for beer in Baltimore.
We came here 14.4.2017. Small brewpub and a separated restaurant area, decorated with a lot of art. The small brewhouse is behind a glass door at the end of the restaurant. Own beers are mediocre, no beer flaws but not a lot of taste. Really liked the very original tap handles, symbolizing the different beer names (e.g a wooden birdhouse for the beer with the same name). They have a quite interesting bottle beer selection: Mahr’s, Schlenkerla, Celebrator, ... Service is quite robotic, not a lot of beer emotions.
Beautiful building with the upstairs bar area elegantly decorated and slick looking. The beers are staple Belgian style ales that are well brewed. I was after half pours but being happy hour it worked out a full glass for the same price...so yeah good deal. The bartender provided great service and it helped that there was only a few folks gathered before the after work rush. Enjoyed my time and a must in Baltimore.
Very cool brewpub with a mainfloor and basement near the train station. Lots of local flavor here and a good atmosphere. Only six of their beers on tap, but a flight is cheap at $6.50. Great place to pop into.
Great place, but not my cup of tea. Building is incredible. Good lighting upstairs. Tok dark in the basement. Hip and loud. Exactely what I try to avoid. If you are in to that, giv e it a shot. The food is good. The prices are reasonable. The beers are goodand they have a good sselection of guest taps.
Artsy brewpub serving mostly Belgians. The beer is quite good - definitely better than average for a brewpub. Food is a bit expensive and fancy. More of a place to take a date than to drink casually with a meal. Food can be quite expensive as well.
After hitting Union we stopped by here for some mid-afternoon drinks. The outside is interesting, just a huge window with a doorway to the side. Upstairs threw us off a bit, we got there before dinner service began. Longue area and bar area - taps are theirs, but they have a huge amount of liquor, promimently displayed, which isn’t normally something I see at a brewpub. Staff were attentive and numerous. Downtstairs opened at 5, but we had already gotten a seat at the upstairs bar. We snagged a peak of the downstairs and it looked pretty cool. Reminding me a bit of the Brickseller/Beer Baron in DC. Didn’t eat there, just a few drinks and then we were off. They have samplers, but didn’t advertise them on their menu (we were just about done drinking their beers when we noticed the tasting trays).
