The place is really nice with a lot of places So even in large groups you can fit in. The variety of beers is really good
Baltimore was once a thriving beer town. Could it be one again? When it comes to beer, Baltimore's thousand or so residents can't be wrong.
It is one of those architectural oddities that lend the Baltimore skyline more than a little distinction, while at the same time arousing the curiosity of those who appreciate offbeat buildings. Standing on a hill in the block of North Gay Street, the abandoned American Brewery rises up from the street, a massive red brick structure grown dingy and weary with age, its pagoda-like tower visible for miles. Placed on the National Register of Historic Places inthe former brewery has served as a backdrop for movies and this season even figured in an episode of "Homicide.
Back in the days when Baltimore was a manufacturing center, neighborhood bars were gathering places for the blue collar workers that worked in the industries. Their thirsts were quenched by the local breweries that produced beer for working men and women and even some high quality brews.

A large number of the local breweries also felt the impact of the prohibition era and closed their doors.

I remember first seeing the building in the early 's from a distance, and when I finally pulled in front of the building, I was amazed to see such a wild old building still standing in Baltimore. The building is in a area of Baltimore not considered too safe these days, and with property values not high in the area, the building has escaped the " let's tear it down " attention so many other buildings in Baltimore have gotten over the years.
The rise of the craft beer movement of course occurred across the nation, starting a few decades back. Here, the rebirth of locally-brewed beers has had a special poignance. English colonists brought beer to America, of course.
It is currently the headquarters of Humanim Inc. At its peak, the brewery employed 61 workers: 16 in brewery work, 17 drivers, 14 in the bottling house, 8 garage men, and 6 office workers.
