The Wharf Rat is located on South Ann St. in the Fell`s Point section of Baltimore. When I was there, they had 10 or so regular draught lines and 2 cask offerings. Half of these beers were from Oliver`s Brewing, which I believe used to owned by the owner of this establishment, but was sold off some time ago. Guinness, Bud Light, Hoegaarden, and others were also on tap. They also have small bottle list. The room is dark with a lot of bric-a-brac on the walls and graffiti covering the bathroom walls. A relaxed and unpretentious environment that serves up a good selection of Olivers and a small selection of guest beers. If you have never had an Oliver`s before, I would stop by The Wharf Rat.

Anyplace in the US that has four active beer engines is outstanding for me. The Wharf Rat had a delicious English IPA (which had a nice American hop kick), a quaffable red and pale, and a winter warmer that was spot-on--no lame spices, just the right mix of malt and hop. I enjoyed these four cask ales so much I didn't bother with the food--which if it looked better I might have. Not that it looked bad, and not that the staff didn't work very hard on the pizzas I saw made, but it just didn't look worth the distraction from the great beer. The service was outstanding as well, which we all know can make or break a place. Sean made sure I had plenty of water to "stay hydrated", was well-informed, and made the place feel warm and welcoming.
