Hops Inn: A Dundalk gem
If you're planning on doing a Dundalk bar tour, make Hops Inn (7002 Railway Ave.) one of your stops.
I went there a couple months ago and wrote about the family-owned bar. Here's a link to the story.
In it, I talked about the ridiculously cheap $3 shots of Johnny Walker Blue Label.
Sorry, lost myself there for a second.
Anyway, MS reader Lorraine went there last night and has some semi-sad news to report ...
Alas, they substituted JW Black for Blue. Lee's rationale is that the regulars couldn't see the sense of paying 3 bucks a shot for 'a shot of whiskey.' I ended up spending a mere 2 dollars for what had to be at least 2 jiggers worth of Jameson.
However the selection of brews on tap were superb. I had a Ying Ling Lager and a Killian's Red and their pepperoni pizza was better than many I've had at many a gen-u-ine parlor.
Oh well. Hops still ranks pretty high on my list of Dundalk bars.
