Private Party Facilities:
The Brewer's Art is a restaurant and microbrewery located in a nineteenth century townhouse in historic Mount Vernon in Baltimore. After many customer requests, we began offering limited in-house catering services a few years ago. Our elegant space, freshly prepared contemporary continental cuisine, award-winning house-made ales and excellent wine list, combined with very reasonable prices, have made us a popular spot for everything from rehearsal dinners to business meetings and holiday parties. Due to certain physical limitations of our unique space, we are unable to offer private rooms for parties, although our back dining room will seat a maximum of 40 for a sit down dinner. Fees vary according to the season, but are based on average sales for that day of the week and time of the year.

The Brewer's Art Ratings and Reviews
The service was pretty bad when we were there. It wasn't that busy, I think they were simply understaffed and it may have just been an off day. The brunch menu was okay, small portions and not many healthy options. The house brew beer is good and the ambiance is great. I think for dinner/lunch the food would be better. It's worth it!
Great dining. We went to celebrate my husband’s birthday and he is a crafter of beer and excited to try their beer. Enjoyed the beer, ambience and unique food choices. Food was delivered hot and they were able to accommodate my celiac disease with no problem. Wait staff was educated and attentive. The staff seemed to be a well cohesive team. I would definitely go back!
Strange difficult menu and the food was just ok. I had the rib eye and it was blah, certainly no steakhouse quality rib eye for the price. the fries were a mess, all bits and pieces, not fresh whole looking fries.
The others entrees were well liked, a pasta dish and two apps.
Server was good but, without good food, its hard to like
Would not rush back
Good winter time spot. The menu is geared to the season with Lots of rich flavors; decor has a warm feel. Everything was good, with the exception of the crab dip which was kind of meh,
but the waiter took it off. The service was on point. Attentive and we didn't have to wait long for anything. Recommended.
I've had better meals there last time I dined there about 4 years ago. Lamb neck was way to fatty. Long lapse between apps (ok seasonal salad)til when mains were served. Partners cod was tasty though warm potato leek vichysois base it was served on tasted more like a turnip soup. Beers served with dinner though where award winning Lovely dining rooms
Brewer's Art provides its own excellent brews (from the brewery adjacent and below) and a wide assortment of bottled beers, as well as first class cuisine, in an old world setting that can't be beat. The interior is just what you might expect from the grand Victorian entrance. The bars are a bit noisy, but who cares given the great drinks and food! The dining rooms are quieter, though they fill up quickly, so reservations are a must. The food is superb: try the crispy duck leg confit and the very generous helping of mussels in crab butter sauce. Truly an Old World Baltimore gem.
Dinner before a show at the Lyric, which is a ten minute walk away. Only problems we had were the limited menu and they did not offer any bread - should not have to ask for it with a $120 total bill with tip. Food was good but should offer scaled down items for customers who have limited time because of an event.
I love coming here for special occasions. The food always exceeds expectations, the menu has something for everyone, and the service is always phenomenal. The ambience is intimate and great for conversation. The three-course Wednesday Beer Dinner is probably the best value in the city, so make sure to check that out.
The hard surfaces and too close tables make conversation impossible. We usually overlook that because the food is good, but this time the food was just odd. Too much dressing on a caesar salad, some weird little mushroom pieces and corn sludge detracting from otherwise nice tuna. The filet in the steak frites required a steak knife, and it had a funny-tasting sauce on the side -- definitely not bearnaise. Disappointing. The chocolate torte was wonderful.
We went to The Brewers Art, because we were attending a Meyerhoff event that evening. What a great surprise. The food was excellent, and the service was excellent. Great selection of beer and wine. The environment is upscale...very nice. We will definitely be back...
The food was excellent but took quite a while to come to the table. Our waiter was attentive, nonetheless, and it was overall an enjoyable night out. We were also surprised at the food choices a bit... we were of the impression that it was more burgers and every day fare. The menu we were given was more upscale, but you can ask for the "bar" menu for burgers etc.
WENT FOR RESTAURANT WEEK - WAS A GREAT VALUE! The place is really nice, food was really good and the service was also good. They lost our order, we notice the people next to us who came in after us got their main dish before us, but our waitress came right over explained the problem (they lost our order) and our main course was out in less than 5 mins. It was really not a long wait, but they comped us - picked up our drinks . The manger came our and apologized and gave us a gift card. They went way above and beyond! We will definitely go back for the food and service. You can not beat their customer service!! Beer was good too - lots of choices next time we will get the beer flight. You can not beat their customer service!!
Ashamed to admit I'd never been to Brewer's Art! Took advantage of Baltimore Restaurant Week to give it a try. I'm not a huge beer drinker (kind of a paradox given the whole point of the restaurant) but I ordered a beer called "Choptank'd" and became a convert to the point I can't stop thinking about it! Probably the best beer I've ever had.
The RW menu offered several interesting choices. I played it safe with a Caesar salad which was delicious. The Parmesan frico was a nice touch. (One starter was watermelon with pork belly. Um, no.) My culotte steak frites was delicious and done medium rare as requested. The only oddball thing was that the meal also had a green salad on the plate. I love salad but I'd rather have had a real vegetable. Dessert was a homemade peach sour cream pound cake. Light and lovely!
Our server was friendly and timed his visits to the table well. The setting is beautiful. We'll be back!
Came with a group of 10 and asked for both a kids table (5 middle school aged) and an adult table. Our waiter was awesome- treated the kids like any other customers. The meal was fantastic and service was superbly attentive and responsive. Kids were a bit bummed that the deserts were a bit misaligned with their palette and there was no ice cream to be had but he did a wonderful job working with them to accommodate them. Knowing this isn't really a place designed for kids, it was so very much appreciated.
