This place has been staring me down for a few years.

Baltimore hosts Firehouse EXPO annually and I have been going for several years and always pass this place since it is right across from the convention center.

So finally we decided to hit it up for lunch. Overall it was not that bad, however the smell inside was so strong with the brewing being done on the premesis. It also made the inside very hot which was already a HOT baltimore day.

Overall the beers and food were average I hade the Blonde ale and it was good nothing special just a good beer. I also had the buffalo chicken sliders which again was good not great.

Overall I would go there again just not with kids.

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.
