On a business trip and wanted to stop in a cool Gastropub. Great location - right outside of the Convention Center and not far from Camden Yards. Had a real nice selection of craft beers, both local and out of town. To eat, had the crabcake/chicken sandwich. Cool creation and really enjoyed it. Staff was really nice but something did not click. There was a good amount of staff but always felt I needed to wait on everything. Wait for beer order, wait for beer, wait for meal, and wait for check (10-15 minutes after I asked for it). Really were not overly busy to justify. I would go back.

The bar tender was not the level of kindness I anticipate when leaving New York, but I try not to generalize. I don't want to deduct too much for that. I didn't order any food but I did have a couple beers. I had low expectations considering the sporty nature of the decor and the assumption that this place was mostly frequented by tourists after an Orioles game. However, I was pleasantly surprised with the first brew, "Sea of Spears," which was apparently a Red Wheat Ale. It smelt very hoppy and was more reminiscent of an IPA than any wheat beer I had, but it was actually a very good beer. This gave me high expectations for my next choice, an actual IPA, Draft Punk. This was not a good beer t didn't even have a scent. I didn't finish it. This was the kind of brew I've come to expect from run-of-the-mill brew pubs. Didn't feel a need to continue on after that and play the guessing game on what may be good or bad. This was a great choice because we then went to Max's Taphouse, which is my new favorite bar, hands down. If you're main goal is to find quality beer, skip here and go straight to Max's. They have an unbelievable selection.

New to the city so have been checking out all the new beer places... this place popped up on a Living Social deal so decided to check it out.

Went on a Wednesday night, patio and outside were chock full of people, bar was mostly empty... hey I'm good with that. Service was really quick and pretty friendly, with a nice beer menu provided. There was something like 10 or so house drafts, 5 house seasonal drafts, a few macro drafts (yuengling, bud light, sam adams), and 3 beers on cask at the time. Big variety of beers, but a lot of them in the "good, not great" category... but everything from cherry beers to imperial stouts. Typical bar food menu with burgers and sandwiches from $10-15 with a heaping side of fries. Pints ranged from $5-6, not bad for being brewed in house and some of the beers nearing 10% ABV.

Kind of in a touristy location near Camden Yards and the convention center, but definitely worth checking out.
