Still no crab smashing but there's dinner to be had yet, so I'm holding out some hope. But first, one more brewpub, hooray!! Seemed closer than it actually was, so it's a good thing that we opted to drive, even though there were like only 3 parking places in all of Baltimore and we had secured one of them and were now giving it up. And as to securing another one, Ed doesn't have my Jedi parking spot skills, but I am in the car so things are promising...

Long, deep, collection of rooms. Up front, a 7 seat straight marble top bar, with a tower of 6 taps. 2 tiers of booze on the mantle of the marble fireplace barback, and booze and glassware to both sides over a center mirror there. A sprawling chandelier dangles from the ornate ceiling above and 3 framed paintings on the walls. 3 bar tables running the large front windows overlooking North Charles, plus a couch and giant guy seating. Through to a small room with pillars and leather couches around a side fireplace, and a few tables dotting the staircase down to the basement bar. And beyond, to a pair of rooms holding a dozen tables each with lavish ceilings, book shelves, psychedelic expansion prints (like you were looking through a kaleidoscope), and a brewroom behind glass to the rear. One of the rooms has a great Rodenbach print, and trophies, awards and books displayed. The lounges and dining rooms are nicely framed and arched, very polished and upscale.

Down-a-stairs, a "V" shaped basement bar seating a baker's dozen, with adjacent bar counters and a side cave nook through brick archways where lie benches and stools for a dozen plus, and 10 tables in a side room, and side side room. It's all brick and low lighting down there. 6 taps on a single tower, booze on the barback, and a large unit with glassware and wines off to one side.

Wall mounted lampage throughout, some beer signage here and there, a blackboard displaying tap selections, and 3 more with the bottled selections. Nearly 100 bottles listed, roughly 1/3 of them Belgian, another 1/3 of them Euro & UK, nearly 2 dozen US micro, including the Hammer & Lunacy (hooray!!), and the remainder being various beers of the world, ciders and N/A's.

6 house taps. The Ozzy, a Belgian Tripel, came in at 7.25%, a nice dry flavor, lightly carbonated and slightly hoppy; the Resurrection, an Abbey Dubbel at 7%, too damn sweet, but tasty though; the Beacon Ale, a session beer at 4.8%, a low hoppiness Pale Ale, nicely balanced; the Wein, their 9th Anniversary beer, ahhhh, dry, very nice; the Sluggo, a Summer session beer at 3.5%, was butterly awful; and the Wit Trash, 4%, with a good deal of orange peel, tasty, a very good Wit. I liked the Wein and the With Trash the best. I was kind of hoping for the Jeannie Trippelhorn Green Peppercorn Tripel but it was not to be.

Anyway, we did the sampler and it's beginning to get kind of crowded, plus there's crabs to be smashed one can hope, so...
