Imagine the Brewer’s Art as an aboveground neighborhood bar. It’s about the perfect place ever, right? Great beer, great food, familiar faces, and the vibe reset from “destination” to “home.” That’s the Hamilton Tavern, a cozy as hell outpost on Harford Road a little too far from any main drinking drag or any of Baltimore’s gentrified arteries to garner much of the weekend party-party crowd. It’s run by one of the guys from the Brewer’s Art, so that quality is pretty much a guarantee. In short, it’s the bar you wish you had in your ‘hood.
