I’ve realized in the last few years of writing about food, I’m only really truly snobby about two things: beer and pizza. And, Baltimore has plenty of excellent options for both. Soon, we’ll have one more in my ever-expanding smorgasbord of a neighborhood, Hampden. God, I love my hood.
A few of my friends are involved with a new craft brewery opening soon in the Hampden/Woodberry area this fall. Waverly Brewing Company is led by Brewmaster Roy Fisher, a longtime beer brewer here in Baltimore. His team gave me a little sneak peek tour of the space, which includes a tasting room, gallery-lounge space and, of course, brewing room. It is located near the corner of Union Avenue and Clipper Mill Road, just a stone’s throw from the also amazing Union Craft Brewing.
For food options, Waverly will be working with a small number of caterers (folks they know personally) who will set up shop outside. Not food trucks per se, but creative casual fare to go with the beers on tap inside.
This fall, the Brewers Association of Maryland will host the first ever Baltimore Craft Beer Festival at Canton Waterfront Park on October 24. Jess Mayhugh of Baltimore Magazine wrote a little something about that. I can’t wait!
