Hey simps: welcome to Bawlmer:
1) Clipper city brewery, try their Heavy Seas series, very hoppy. Pick up a six pack.
2) Brewers Art Brewpub (mt. Vernon area): Slightly upscale(read:yuppie)excellent brews and very good food. Funky place with couches and such. Specializes in Belgium styles but has lots of others.
3) Wharf Rat(Fells Point and Inner Harbor) nice pale ales and cask conditioned beers. Urban Pub feel.
4) Ellicott Mills Brewing Co.(Old town Ellicott City) on the west side,Howard County. Typical pub feel, decent brews.
