Concierge.com's insider take:
A wildly popular watering hole for 20-something night crawlers, this Fells Point tavern caters to a classier postcollege crowd with pressed-tin ceilings and hardwood floors, and Maryland's largest selection of suds. There are 80 beers on tap and more than 1,000 by the bottle, heavily weighted to rare imports and obscure microbrews: Try the Ottersan, a Japanese-style amber, or Cantillon, a Cognac-casked Belgian. There are tables, but for service it's best to make yourself seen at the bar and heard over the '60s soundtrack.
Open daily 11 am to 2 am.
