Bar
$$
“Brewery/restaurant making the best beer and some really great food. You don't really see the brewery part...but the restaurant is beautiful. The basement is one of the coolest hangs in Baltimore. You'll need to drive/uber there. You can get off on the cheap there (two beers and their rosemary fries gets you out for $20 after tip), but you can also rack up a bill with some of their $30 entrees.”
