The next Fab Five Friday

We've talked about it.

Let's do it.

This week's Fab Five Friday is on the bars with the best beer selection. 

Max's Taphouse in Fells Point and the Brewer's Art in Mount Vernon will not be included in the list.

Whatcha got for me?

Do you mean on tap or overall selection including bottles?

Red Star has a constantly changing selection of unique beers in bottles and on tap. They always have specials on their featured brews. I've discovered quite a few gems more bonus, they DON'T charge 6 bucks for an Anchor Steam!

I also dig the creative draft combinations on the list at Dog Pub.

Souris' Saloon in Towson has an excellent selection of good beers on tap including BaltoMarzHon - one of my favorite local brews. I also hear that at Pur they have someone to scatter hops on the floor so as to make your lounging experience more enjoyable for the $20 you just shelled out to walk through the door. Or at least they should.

Mahaffey's in Canton. They usually have a cask of beer available and a great variety on tap.

I second the vote for Mahaffey's.

Third on the Mahaffey's boat.


Both bottles and tap selection.

metropolitan in fed hill

I second metropolitain. they have a beer tatsing event on thursdays that is always diverse and satisfying.
