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!

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.
