Fantastic Belgian beers, and Volker Stewart, the founder, is great too. The main dining room is fancy and a little expensive but the front and downstairs bars serve tasty and more reasonably priced fare, although they tend to be packed most weekends. Be warned, the basement bar feels a bit (okay, a lot) like a cave. If the pub is too busy, you can find their flagship Resurrection in cans, and they're often pouring at First Thursday concerts in the park and other community / charity events. Street parking in the neighborhood can be tough but there are a handful of lots and garages fairly close by.

If you like Belgian style beers, this is definitely a place to check out. Not the easiest place to find. It is an old restored office building and the sign on the outside is not very large. There is entry upstairs to the main restraurant and downstairs for the tavern.

The restaurant was white table cloth and definitely appeared to be a higher quality of food than a normal brewpub. I just had an appetizer, the rosemary fries were definitely good.

The beers were all belgian style variations. As someone that likes some hop to the beer, this beer focused much more the malt variants, so these were not my favorite styles. That being said, the Collaberateur and Proletariat were both tasty darker belgains. Resurrection apparantly is their best seller, but I did not find if particularly interesting. They had 6 of their beers available, and then about 50 other beers, mostly imports in bottles.

This person needs 3 or more reviews on the site for their scores to start counting.

The restaurant has a cozy and fancy first floor that we skipped over for the candlelight cellar bar with brick walls and archways. The three of us shared one of each of their house beers that were all titled with great names (Dan's favorite title was Wit Trash). I was surprised that my favorite beer was a seriously dark beer called Proletary Ale (named so because it is their "beer for the people!") that was just amazingly smooth and delicious. Our least favorite was the Cerberus Tripel, which we all agreed tasted like bad beer with a shot of vodka. Aside from the Tripel, all the beers were outstanding and the three of us felt in great spirits for what the evening had to bring.

The low score for service was given because the bartender that night was very impatient and rude--but we didn't let that spoil the evening!

Just re-visited this one over the weekend - it never fails to please. Had the Ozzy (which is about as smooth a Belgian as you're going to find) and a Cerberus Trippel (powerful, but the higher alcohol content does not overwhelm you). The food is fantastic and varied. I had an exquisite cheeseburger and rosemary fries, while my wife had pork belly. We started out with mussels in wine sauce that were also outstanding.

The interior of the brewpub is great, as well: a formal area for dining, a bar area that is a little louder, a socializing area in between with open sofas and 'comfy' chairs, and a lower level 'cave' for distancing oneself from time-of-day completely.

This is arguably the best brewery in Baltimore, depending on which styles are your favorites. The Brewer's Art is a Belgian style brewery-restaurant, and the quality has been consistently among the finest you'll find in all my visits in the last decade-plus. The food is always good, and the atmosphere first rate. In the colder months, they often have a fire in the beautiful fireplace of the parlor just off the upstairs bar. Dinner in the formal dining room at the back is enhanced by the view of the brewhouse. If you're a first time visitor to Baltimore, this is among the 3 musts, including the Pratt Street Alehouse (brewpub) and Max's on Broadway (taproom). Resurection and Ozzy are to of the main house beers that I go back and forth on whether I like one or the other. There's always an interesting seasonal or two as well. Check out the TBA's funky basement bar too. The garlic rosemary fries are an added treat not to be missed.
