    Well's is solid. Of Love and Regret has a bunch of rare / weird imports and locals in the upstairs lounge. I live in Baltimore but outside of those two I usually drive outside the city.

    Max's in Fell' Point has one of the largest selections in MD. Pricey but there is a to go discount.

    Nothing great downtown. Wine source in Hampden and Bo Brooks in Canton are the best in the city.

    Did you drive down from NY? If so, on your way home, stop at State Line Liquors in Elkton, MD just off of I-95. Great selection. Mix a six. Growlers.

    Instead of creating a new thread, I'll just post in this one.

    I'll be in Bmore for work tomorrow night through Saturday morning. I'm staying at Arundel Mills near DuClaw. I was hoping to have time to grab some bottles to bring back. The problem is that I won't be renting a car, so I'd like to keep it as close as possible unless there are viable public transit options.

    Any recommendations?

    Also, what specifically should I be looking to snag? I'm a fan of all styles.

    Are you driving from NY, if so State Line Liquors right off 95. You can google map it and there is a way to avoid the toll at the MD/DE border. Plus they do growler fills now and have a great selection.

    The Perfect Pour, which has one of the best selections in the area, especially for domestics, has a well earned reputation for price gouging on whales. Prices are just a bit elevated on the regular hard to find stuff.
    That being said, it's the closest and bestest to Arundel Mills, around 4-5 miles away.

    Methinks your only shot at Cantillon is in DC, that's within 45 minutes and you could take the train down. Phone numbers are available in the 'Places' search here on BA:

    Kicking myself because I was in Vermont last weekend and hit up a craft shop but overlooked Drie Fonteinen Oude Geuze on the shelf. Shazbot.

    Max's would likely be your best bet. They usually have some Cantillon stuff on hand (especially with 72 hours of Belgium coming up in February), and while they're a beer bar, you can buy beer to go as well. Granted, you'll be paying beer bar prices for the stuff, but in the past their mark-up on Cantillon beers hasn't been too outrageous, so the cost shouldn't be too dear for a bottle.

    Thanks, everyone. It was a short trip, and I went to DuClaw both nights since it was walking distance from my hotel. I thoroughly enjoyed their beers, especially Serum and Hellrazer. Venom on nitro was also pretty tasty. I also made it to Perfect Pour last night and picked up a few bottles we don't get down here. Although their prices seemed to be about 10% higher than I'm used to, I know it's a higher cost if living area with different taxes. The staff was super friendly and knowledgeable.

    Baltimore is alright with me, even if I couldn't get any Westbrook or Bell's.
