Edgewater's Old Stein Inn (1143 Central Ave., Edgewater,  798-6807, oldstein-inn.com) is becoming a craft-beer destination after decades of being known as an authentic German restaurant with hard-to-get German beers. The restaurant celebrates the grand opening of its Bier Bär, with year-round outdoor communal tables, a haute cuisine menu of small plates, and more than 25 craft beers, on Nov. 6. Owner Mike Selinger said he plans to add 10 tap lines dedicated to craft beers in the next month. This will complement the restaurant's impressive 40-beer-strong German list. Though it shocks my conscience, it turns out not everyone loves German beer and giant portions of food. At Bier Bär, you can have all the fun of Oktoberfest every weekend but now with a hoppy IPA in hand. Its first and featured craft beer for the grand opening is Manor Hill's The Gathering, a wet-hopped IPA from Howard County.
