We are a brewery and restaurant located in an early 20th century townhouse, in the heart of Baltimore's historic Mt. Vernon district. Since opening our doors in 1996, we have become one of Baltimore's most beloved destinations for well-crafted beers and outstanding cuisine in a unique and relaxing atmosphere. Whether you prefer a hidden corner in the cavernous basement, a seat in the window overlooking bustling Charles Street, or a table in the beautiful dining rooms, we welcome you to relax and enjoy yourself.
