Stopped in here after a long day of drinking...wish I had done so earlier in the day. Wow, I have never seen a brewpub with such a vast selection of their own beers on tap. The menu looked like a menu for a beer bar. There were a lot, far too many to list...so, I won't even bother.

They did have a speciality listing of their own Coventry collection of beers on tap...I think these are newer.

They do have samplers, but apparently not available all the time, only up until certain hours (I think the beer menu said), and then you only get to try 4 or so of their offerings.

I had a stout, laced with a licorice flavor along with a Bier de garde...both were quite good. If I had the ability and the room inside of me, I would have stayed a lot longer and drank a lot more.

Went there on a Friday night...it is about a block between the Inner Harbor and Camden Yards. The drunken remnants of the happy hour crowd remained there...a bit loud and smokey, but that is fine. The bartender was very friendly...she struck up a conversation with us...knew we were tourists (was it that obvious?). She offered us tasting of the beers without even us having to ask. When I was considering the stout, she poured me a sample of one of their brown ales, just to try.

This is not a trendy spot...it is an old school style bar. There is a restaurant area and a decent sized section for outside drinking/eating, facing the Convention Center. There is another Wharf Rat in Fells Point, which apparently isn't as big and we didn't try.

Cool place. Nothing fancy, but decent beers...and a lot of them. Better than Capitol City, a few blocks away.

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.
