Brewer's Cask is finally open; here's the beer list

The Baltimore Sun

Brewer's Cask, the new Federal Hill beer outpost, is finally open.

Owner Jason Stevens said the bar opened last Thursday, the same morning the bar got its liquor license. But some of its amenities weren't immediately fully operational. The registers were only taking cash and the kegs hadn't arrived.

Everything's up and running now, Stevens said.

Last Fall, Brewer's took over the space where Muggsys's had been until June, when owner Danny Young closed because the bar had been struggling financially. He blamed competition from neighborhood bars, like The Abbey and Metropolitan.

Brewer's is pursuing a clientele of beer snobs. The beer list - posted below - has 20 brands on draft and up to 50 by the bottle, including Troeg's, 21st Amendment, and Oskar Blues. All drafts are under $5.50; bottles average that price, but some of the Belgians are $9 and $12.

As its name implies, it will also carry cask-conditioned ales, which are increasingly popular in Baltimore. Liam Flynn's Ale House, Frisco Tap House, the upcoming Heavy Seas joint will all carry casks.

The bar is also pushing its lunch hours - it aims to open at 11 a.m. six days a week - and promises a lunch in 30 minutes or less.
