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.

Stopped here before a concert at the Royal Farms Arena. Really good vibe, with pretty good food... Service was just so-so. Thinking I caught them on an off night with service. Probably the go-to spot if your heading down to the arena

Not a bad place to drink if you are in the Baltimore area. Service was a little slow when I was there but the bar was packed. The selection is decent and the food was pretty good. Worth a stop in if you have time to kill.

Watch out for bronies! A My Little Pony convention that was happening across the street sure added a little oomph to the area, and indeed the Pratt Street Ale House. Tables spilling out onto the street, and nearly all tables full. The ale house is large, and there is a second floor which me and my brother were taken to. Even on the second level, multiple rooms were found, giving each area its own feel rather than a single large potluck of drunks. There was even a small bar near us! Great activity going on inside and outside, and it looks like little has changed with the cosmetics since its opening.

I knew that I was coming for a good time based on its beer menu. Many of the beers are based on the British tradition, and there were 14 listed (but out of two). It's hard enough to find mild ale or bitter, so I was thrilled to find both styles being brewed here. In addition, there was an Irish Red, English Porter, English Strong Ale, and Oatmeal Stout brewed in house. I had the mild and bitter, and both light ales had enough flavor to keep me drinking without bloating me. To top it off, several guest taps were welcome to the scene (Bells, Unibroue, Yards, Southern Tier, DC Brau).

Crab mac n' cheese....yum. It came in a very generous portion too. Matching the food was the service, which came at a good pace, and plenty of checking up on our statuses.

Well, that was worth the hour drive from northern Virginia, now let's go back. But wait, there's more of Baltimore to see!

This place was pretty good, but it made it difficult to enjoy their beers because they were out of 6 of the dozen or so that they offer. Luckily I was able to try the Ironman Pale Ale, which was pretty tasty. Wish I could have tried their Draft Punk IPA though, or the Wheat Ale they offer.
