No. 11 -- Down the Hatch( Sam Sessa, Baltimore Sun / October 12, 2010 )
This could be the only Baltimore bar where bottles of Miller Lite ($2) cost more than frozen mugs of Clipper City Gold ($1.25). That's not a typo: At Down the Hatch (or "downy hatch," if you will), drafts of Magic Hat #9 and Clipper City Gold are only a dollar and change. Now, if you want to pay with a credit card, you have to spend at least $10. With prices that low, it's not easy. --Sam Sessa
