Dinner is served daily between 5:30pm - 9:00pm (later on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays) and light fare is available from 4:00pm - 11:00pm. Our creative pastry chef prepares our homemade desserts. In addition to brewing our fine beers on the premises, we offer a carefully picked selection of beers and fine wines from around the world, and one of Baltimore's best selections of scotches and spirits.

The front of the building is a completely nondescript facade with a couple of heavy doors that one must pass through to get to the stained blonde wood door that serves as the entrance to this establishment. As you pass through the doorway, if you look back, you will see that it is a faux-Grecian temple archway. The bar is directly in front of you, with the huge picture window overlooking the street to your right. The bar is marble and behind it is a bas-relief sculpture, mirrors, and an operable marble fireplace. Another Grecian doorway to your left leads you into a lounge with comfy sofas, yet another marble fireplace, marble columns for supports(!), and a combination of squash and sunshine-yellow paint on the walls. It all feels very warm and relaxing, like being at home, in one person's opinion. The next room is a dining room with eggshell-white and dark-brown walls in a home library-type setting. The brewhouse is all the way aft in this room, visible through a couple of glassed-in doors. From here, you can use a stairway into the basement, which has a laquered bar, brick arched doorways, a subterranean entrance, wood slat benches and even a hidden back room. This place bespeaks Belgium in America in a way rivalled only by New Belgium BC in Fort Collins, CO. I rave about this place every time that it comes up in conversation and I am overjoyed that it exists in Charm City. I had an opportunity to visit yesterday on a bus trip from Mount Joy, PA and my enthusiasm was enough to cause a couple of people to choose here over Fells Point.
