I couldnt believe this place hasnt been reviewed!!!After being on my "gotta get there" list for 5 years or more I made it on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
Varied and extensive menu from pub grub to full blown meals(chops,seafood,steak,veggie).Enjoyed a wonderful British bitter and a nitro stout that was exceptional.Not to mention a killer "crab melt" that was loaded with crab meat topped with a fresh not previously frozen or hot house tomato.
I think the beers tend to rotate.The Rams Head is also a music venue for national acts in an intimate setting of about 300 seats.A place not to be missed when in the Annapolis/Baltimore/DC area!!!

This is one of the best places in Annapolis, and definetly the most popular. They've got an awesome atmosphere with options! The main floor - more open with tv's, views of the brewery, the main bar; a downstairs which is the orignal bar - old pub feel, and an outside beergarden.
Happy hour is a must... 2 dollar fordham drafts, and free snacks including roast beef, wings, it all depends on the day. I recommend the Tavern Ale; and other favorites are the Oyster and Genius Stouts, and the Copperhead. If you don't like the Fordham's they have a huge selection of beer's by the bottle, that would rival most great beer bars.
You can't go wrong with Ram's Head, and if you're only in Annapolis for one night, and looking for a bar, this is a good option.

I stopped by the Ramshead about 2 months ago when I was in the area for work. The place was awesome, free food and great beers. I lucked out and was able to make it there twice, once for the unveiling of their Hefe. I was traveling solo, but everyone was very friendly and I felt right at home. The layout of the place is interesting and I think there is a room to suit everyones taste. The bartenders were prompt and remembered where I was as I made my way through the taps. All of the house beers were very tasty, but for some reason I dont remember my favorite. The free food during happy hour was awesome, mussels one night and seared tuna the other. This food sustained me for both days I was there, so I didnt try anything off there menu. The free food and cheap beers allowed me to drink every house beer, some several times over, all for less then $20 per visit. Next time I am down there for work, Ill be pulling a stool up to their bar.

This location is my favorite of all of the Ram's Head locations. Its in a fun spot in downtown Annapolis. You get a unique variety of people from the local college kids to an older crowd as well. They have Fordham beers on tap which are all excellent. I like the Copperhead myself. The place has a unique layout that offers louder and more quiet areas depending on what mood you are in. They often have live music as well. The food is also excellent. I notice that had free food out during happy hour as well. A fun spot in a cool town to spend a day.

I still remember when I moved to the DC area way back in 2002 and played often with the Annapolis Symphony, this was the place I would always go with my friends.
Atmosphere: I only sat at the bar, but my wife walked through the place and was awed by its vastness. I'll take her word for it. It's in a really nice location in a rather awesome town.
Quality and Service: The service we had the night we went was pretty good and in terms of beer, the Fordham stuff was fine. Special shout out to the Serious Stout.
Selection: Lots of taps here, mostly brewed by Fordham, but a few from other local MD breweries. Nice.
Food: Didn't do any entrees, but both the onion rings and nachos were great.
Value: Nothing too offensive in this area.

I stopped in for brunch one Sunday afternoon. The place was pretty slow when we first got there, but by the time we left it was starting to fill up.
The building is nice from the outside. Walking in the doors, the bar is right there off to the right. There are tables all around with seating in the back. Old time brewing equipment is on display, to the left as you walk in. We actually sat at a table right next to the copper kettle.
Our waitress was very prompt with our drinks and our food came out rather quickly. She was knowledgeable about the beer menu and even pointed out the upcoming beer release.
The brunch menu was very nice with offerings from sandwiches, waffles, and eggs Benedict. I had the egg and chorizo tacos...three huge tacos with a side of home fries...talk about fulfilling. My girlfriend ordered the Belgian waffle with fresh fruit...the waffle was big and fluffy, but there was only two strawberries on talk.
As far as the beer selection, it was decent. There were no complaints on my part. Most of the selection was offerings from Fordham Brewing...the Tavern and Copperhead were solid. They also had a few Old Dominion beers. How can you go wrong Old Dominion Oak Barrel Stout?! There were other micros available as well.
Rams Head Tavern was an enjoyable place to have Sunday brunch. I would like to visit some of the other locations, but this location was perfect...downtown Annapolis.
