While in the area, i was excited to give this place a try. It is pretty big. They have a pub area, dining area, patio and even a downstairs pub. Next door to the restaurant is a spot they host concerts (pretty big names play there as well) and they even have a store for Fordham Brewing gear.

They serve all of the Fordham beers plus several unexciting guest beers, mostly macros like Guiness, Hoegarten, etc. I didn't see the bottled selection, but I believe they have a large selection of these.

Started with a sampler. Everything was good. A lite lager...the copper ale and tavern ale were quite similiar (both amber and a bit hoppy)...the oak barrel stout was the real gem. It had a hint of vanilla and bourbon, but was incredibly smooth to drink. Their summer seasonal was a pleasant tasting and refreshing hefe.

A great location, a block off main street. A decent menu. My club sandwich was good.

My only real complaint was the staff. As we sat in the bar area, a bartender initially brought us our sampler. He plunked the glasses down and raced from the table.

Our waitress started off okay, but she took forever to bring over our beers (we could see them sitting on the bar just waiting to be picked up while she was standing around). She forgot a side we ordered. When I asked for a hefe, she had no idea until I called it by its nickname, the "summer" something or other. When I was trying to buy a pint glass at the store, the kid at the desk sent me up to the crowded bar to buy one because he was out (instead of going and getting more himself). It was a young staff. Nothing awful, just a few little things added together.

Overall, regardless of little staff issues, really good beers. A cool location. You can eat out front as well. A must stop for beer loves in Annapolis.

The best of the bunch, RMT is one of my favorite places to see some great live music. Seating is intimate and the place has been smoke free well before MD banned indoor smoking. One of the craptacular parts is that the beer menu is different between the concert side and the bar/restaurant side, with the better beer being among the ladder of the two. The basement remains one of the cooler spots to grab some food and enjoy a good beer. It is VERY SMALL however and will get crowded at a certain point, regardless of the night of the week. Live music (down below) also adds to the character of this place. This place has it all as far as dining preference ranging from large party, outdoor-well-designed-intimate-patio style to old Annapolis pub feel.
