Not a bad brewpub to check out, especially since it's so close to where both the Orioles and the Ravens play. It's in a fairly old looking building, that has a semi-antique interior with old beer bottles, cans, and glasses on several shelves. There are separate bar and restaurant areas. I dined in the restaurant section, and enjoyed a crabcake sandwich with my brews. It was very delicious. The beers I had were both of their cask beer selections, which were both solid. They had about 8-9 other of their own brews on the beer menu, as well as some good microbrew and import selections. The service wasn't too bad, except I had to wait a few minutes for another beer though, with our waitress just sitting there twiddling her thumbs ten feet away. The food came out very quickly, even for how empty the place was (we had an early dinner). I really liked this place, and I look forward to going back and trying some of their other beers.

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.
