This was our first stop on a visit to Baltimore for a Bachelor party. We were on our way to a ballgame at Camden Yards which is like 3 blocks away. There is a fair amount of "patio" seating but we strolled inside and grabbed a table near the bar. The bar is english pub decor and feel. Dark wood, wooden stools, breweriana scattered around. The bar is about 15 stools long with maybe 12 tap handles and 3!! hand pumps! Very cool to see that much cask brew.
Service was a little slow as no one came over to our table to see what we needed, and it wasnt jampacked either, but the bar was 5 feet away and the bartenders were cool.
The beers were on the mild side in terms of ABV, which is even more true to England. WE didnt try any food, but the menu was pub grub from across the pond, shepards pie, etc. I had a tasty dark mild ale, and also a nice porter. tasted a strong ale and some others. All beers were very enjoyable. Only drawback was plastic cups, but I think that was due to gameday. They do sell growlers which is always a bonus. This is a must stop if going to a game!

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.
