Twenty-eight tap lines dispense craft suds at this bi-level beer hall, an outpost of Alewife Baltimore. Take a seat at the zinc-topped bar and choose from Belgian (De Ranke XX Bitter), German (Schlenkerla Helles) and American (High & Mighty Beer of the Gods) drafts. On the second level, you can lounge by the fireplace on tufted gray leather couches or sit at a table and order gastropub bites. The menu includes dishes like pork-belly meatballs with tomato compote and a Parmesan crisp; jalapeño mac and cheese made with smoked cheddar; and a short-rib-and-brisket burger on a brioche bun, served with truffle-salt fries.
