Typical overpriced sports bar, saved only by a selection of a few good craft beers. House beers (Dempsey) are average. I am an O's fan so I am slightly biased here. Otherwise would rate as a typical sports bar.

Went here during the off-season for lunch on a random Sunday afternoon. Pretty cool setting and really neat that it's basically in the stadium, and high top tables with large glass windows look right into centerfield which is a nice touch.

Place was pretty much dead but the bartender was very attentive and cheerful. Looks like they brew 4 beers which are always on tap (doesn't seem to be any seasonal or special beers). Tried a flight of all 4 which only cost $3-4 for pretty decent sized pours. The beers are pretty average to be honest, but drinkable none the less. Full pints were also only $3.50 or so, but get as low as $2 during Happy Hour. Ordered some food which was above average, although I highly recommend the 'bacon on a stick'... it's exactly as awesome as it sounds and is served in an empty 6 pack of bottles. Apparently it's won several awards and bacon competitions as well.

Anyways, if in the area I'd definitely stop by and check it out.... there's plenty of TV's and cool Orioles swag around and gives you a chance to try some locally brewed beers, but nothing I'd go way out of my way for.

Was in town to catch a few ball games and stopped in here after the game because you could not get near the place before or during the game. Good beer selection as well as four brewed by Dempsey's. Their red ale was their best brew in my opinion. Food selection is paired down on game days but still good. Also as I was there after a game, Rick Dempsey showed up and took pictures with fans and signed autographs. Cool place.

Stopped in here on a non-baseball game day and the place was dead. The place has plenty of glass and has a nice view of the baseball stadium's upper deck, but you need to be out on Eutaw St to look at the field. Definte warehouse feel here but it is also bright and airy. Light woods and a lighter grey bartop create a decent atmosphere. Four decoritive brew tanks with the names of the four beers are at the end of the bar. Loads of TVs here as it does fit the sports theme well.

This place offers four house beers - an IPA, Red Ale, Wheat, and a Gold. Not too much variety but the place is relatively new. We had pints of IPA and Red Ale, and both were very dull and uninspired. The IPA sported some citrus tones but little hop presence and the Red Ale was one dimensional - but again this place is for Oriole game day, so for the masses they may feel these house beers are great. Some other standard macro beers were also available.

All in all this was a short stay after finishing a pints. Not really a true BA destination despite the fact they make some beers here.
