This place is a great place to enjoy some awesome beers, the food is good, i wouldn't say it is top of the line but it is far from the worst! Always a different selection of brews every time I am there! Big bar setting with separate dining area! Kids are welcome, ( at the dining room of course) which is good because i have 3 awesome kids! They sell growlers and other merchandise such as glassware and clothing and other items! Visit www.DuClaw.com to check out their online store! I think its cheaper if you buy your merchandise online and have it shipped to the Brewery and pick it up! They will ship to any location too!

My wife and I stopped in on the trip down to Baltimore. Easy to find and conveniently located about 2 miles from I-95 exit 77B. Located in a parking lot behind a Bob Evans, but still can be seen from the road. Upon entering the building you experience the warehouse feeling with the large ceilings and pipes, but there is plenty of glass to keep this place brightly lit. Hostess promptly seated us during a Friday lunchtime. The restaurant was nicely filled with a combo of families, suits, and construction workers enjoying lunch. Brewing kettles in the center of the place behind glass, and a large 30 seat bar, pool table and numerous TVs are located in the back. There was a second floor containing more tables.
There were 6 beers on tap - usual staples of Kangaroo Love, Bad Moon Porter, Venom Pale Ale, Bare Ass Blonde, and Misfit Red. The special beer was Naked Fish which was an exceptional raspberry stout nicely balanced and dessert-like. Also had a super fresh Venom Pale Ale and the Porter which were also very good.
The sandwiches we had were good, and the waitress service was very attentive during the crowded lunch hour.
This place is now on my list of must do's while doing any travelling down I-95 in Maryland area. This place is well worth the visit and deserves more attention than what it gets.

I actually went to te Hanover MD location. Service was very good with the waiter and bartenders being fairly knowledgeable. They brought out some special bottles they sold us from the back after my friend and I ordered the 17 yes 17 beer 5oz sampler to share. For the number of beers available I was highly impressed by the quality across the board. A wide variety of styles some uncommon with unique twists to many. May be the best variety of any place of its kind I have ever visited. The food menu was decent for variety and what I had was good. There is a normal seating area with an outdoor and separate bar area. It's located in a very busy shopping mall/ plaza. A must go when you are in the area.

This is the original location, nestled in the rear of the BelAir South Complex, but it still recieves top billing on the roadside business listing signage. It is a clean, well-lighted place for beer (thx, Papa), with its centerpiece a now-defunct brewhouse. I like the corrogated metal roof, exposed I-beams, and air ducts, all painted a cobalt blue. To the left of the entryway are dining booths and square four-person tables. Off to the right are round four-person tables and the bar. The bar is a huge affair, long and made of wood, with three server stations, each with its own set of eight taps(!). There is also a patio, fenced in with wrought iron, and accessible from behind the tables by the bar. Our group was seated up a flight of stairs with glass under the rails, I suppose to be able to see who was going up or down. It was kind of intriguing that they did this. Both upstairs and down have lots of breweriana on display, so do trip around the place when you stop in. We had a really good bell pepper cream-based soup and huge panini sandwiches for lunch. The waitstaff was quite friendly and patient with us, even when everybody ordered the beer sampler. Hey, we were on a bus trip to sample beer ... Plus, I am a Pest and I was the first to order, so I will take the blame. Definitely worth stopping back, especially once Lew Bryson's Mid-Atlantic book comes out.

Very bright, clean and spacious. A long winding bar - oddly shaped with an upstairs area. Ten beers on tap - nice variety. A couple video games and a pool table are off to the side of the bar.
Service was very friendly and attentive, though numbers were growing at the bar. Despite the growing crowd, the server (Shannon) was attentive and very friendly. She said that she was pretty new, and so if she didn't know an answer about a certain beer, asked the other bartender, who seemed very knowledgeable about the beers. (Even though she was "new", she still seemed pretty knowledgeable, herself.)
The prices included specials, such as a very long happy hour special price (of about half off)and $2.00 off Tuesdays. (Wine bottles of $30 or less half price on Sundays.)
There's a very good selection of rotating/seasonals included in the ten beers that were offered, with a wide variety of seasonals. The beers were generally good to very good, though a couple were a bit thin from low carbonation.
I only ate the Nachos appetizer, and it was good with a generous portion (though that's not enough to review the food.)
This place is certainly worth a visit, esp. if you're in the general area.

Took a road trip to Maryland to celebrate a friend getting a new job...this was our first stop, for dinner. Sat at the bar, and it was pretty crowded, but the bartenders were friendly and tried their best to get our drinks to us quickly. They had eight beers on tap, and I only tried too. My buddy had the brown ale and porter and enjoyed them both. I had the Sawtooth wit, and it was excellent, one of the best wits I've ever had. Great orange bite in that one. Also had the Serum DIPA, and it was OK...I've had better. As for the food, the buffalo dip was totally awesome and well worth the drive. The buffalo chicken panini was also very good, and loaded (two breasts!). Best part: during happy hour at the bar, all drinks are two bucks off...so I got two drinks for six bucks. Apps are also half price, so I paid I think 4.50 for my dip. Real great place, will definitely be back again

Hit the"new" risen from the ashes DuClaws in Bel Air for the release of Mad Bishop. Four of us hit the place around 430 and things were hoppng by then. They have a great happy "hour" really lasts from 3-7 and you get all regular drafts for $2 and a nice list of reasonable priced pub grub appetizers to choose. We all got some food to share (loaded nachos, calamari, mozzarella moons, wings and multiple orders of their homemade potato chips!!) and Dave treated us to our first round of nitro-poured Venom....not on the $2 list. The Venom on nitro was very nice.
Tried a few other beers....Euphoria (a toffee nut brown), CO2 poured Venom and their Bad Moon Porter...all were good or better.
The "new" place looks much like to old place...which is fine there wasnt anything wrong with the old place. I think they opened things up in the back area and now it has an airiness to the inside....nice.
At 7 PM the main event started and they had a 5 minute video presentation about various Bishop related things and a little skit from something by George Carlin portraying some Catholic Bishop...all very well done and fun, even had a promo for next months release of Dragon's Milk (barleywine). With all the hype though the Mad Bishop as a beer was a little disappointing....oh well we still had a very good time.
Our bartenders were very good and we rarely waited long to have a request taken care of or a drink refilled. The cheap standard taps and delicious happy hour food menu was great. All totaled the four of us got out of there for $20 each and that included a nice fat tip to the bar folk.
In addition if you are signed up to their email list you got a special coupon for a gift....a free Mad Bishop T-shirt....not a bad perk!
I will be back to DuClaws Bel Air for more special nights....even if the drive from I-83 to Bel Air is such a pain!

Took a trip to Maryland this past June and visited my wife's grandmother. Now being a beer geek that I am I research the closest brewery to where we are staying. I came across DuClaw! Not realizing it was part of a huge mall, and right next door to Buffalo wild wings. I walked in was unsure what to think. After looking at the beer list I tried the sampler of 8 different ones, all good but one stood out! their double IPA...called serum! it was fantastic! after two pints and dinner I was very satisfied. I bought a growler to take home! Food was off the hook too!

This was stop #256 on my quest to visit every quality, independent brewery/brewpub in North America.
A fancy property located in an otherwise pedestrian strip mall surrounded by chains. Was traveling most of the day and pretty hungry. Something smelled really good on the walk in from the lot.
Large, high-ceiling dining room on the left as you enter. The bar was proportionally spacious with a ton of well-positioned HD TV's. If the game's on, you have a great view in the bar.
All the servers seemed to be young, thin females. We actually joked that it might be a hiring requirement. Ours provided a competent layout of the beers and actually expressed an interest in what she liked and what was popular. We began with the bartenders best friend - the sampler.
When presented with the sampler, my first reaction was underwhelming due to lack of interest in most of the styles. A "light," and blond which I had no use for, an amber which was well done but not a favorite style, and a seasonal Scottish and Octoberfest which were very well done examples of two beers thank rank as my two least favorite styles. It's worth mentioning that they were both done well enough that I found myself drinking more of those samples than I ever imagined. The other seasonal was a brown which was well done. In fact, that pretty much sums up the experience, all beers were well done and true to style. They had their IPA on nitro so the sampler included the regular IPA and IPA nitro. I doubled down and had a full pint of the nitro IPA. If you're an IPA fan, this should do it for you. Low malt backbone, plenty of bitterness, with a moderate amount of hop flavor/aroma. The sampler also included an oatmeal stout which was true to style but I was hoping for a bit more richness.
My friend had the steak and I had the crabcake entrée. My food was excellent. Mostly crabmeat and served over delicious friend green tomatoes and a tomato bisque which complimented both items.
The bottom line is it may seem like an upscale chain but the food is very good and there were no flaws in the beer.

Writing this upon my first visit to the BelAir location.
Nice industrial atmosphere. The brewing equipment is centered in the restaurant. The layout is pretty cool, although I didn't make it up to check out the 2nd floor. Nice bar area, plenty of seating available.
Beers ranged from decent to downright good. No stinkers.
Service was generally fast and the bar staff was knowledgable about the beers.
Nice array of beers, with quite a variety of seasonals. More than you could try in one night, at least if you wanted to remeber all of them. I was suprised to see an 11.5 ABV barleywine and a 12% belgian on the tap list.
Nice variety of pub-style foods, with some nice entrees as well. A good selection of some tasty dishes. Everything we had was good.
Totally reasonable for a nice evening out. Beers were $3 or $3.50 depending on the beer, and a growler of the barleyine was only $7. I am already looking forward to my next visit.
