Visited on 09/20/10.
It's a very non-descript place inside a suburban sprawl shopping area. The area outside the place has plenty of sidewalks and parking, but otherwise from the outside of the place you'd never guess that this was a brewpub.
Atmosphere: Big open seating place - nothing special on the atmosphere of the place. The brew kettles and brewing operation is visible from the entrance, but other than this, there isn't much that distinguishes this place from any other general restaurant and bar.
Quality: Beer quality is above average - nothing special. There are the 5 normal beers on tap and for the night I was there, two other specials - a Hefe and one other one at the end of the keg (Gunpowder pale ale if I remember correctly - I didn't try it).
Service: The server was good and attentive - as was the other staff in place. No complaints here.
Selection: As mentioned - there are 5 normal beers covered and two rotational beers available on tap when I was there. Okay for a small beer joint.
Food: The food was indeed good. The appetizer of crab cakes was tasty (as it should be in Maryland - any place with bad Crab Cakes in MD is to be avoided at all costs) and I was happy with the meal (stout marinaded sirloin sliders with sweet potato fries). Everyone else at the table was pleased with what they got.
Overall - nothing special, but okay.

I arrived fairly early in the day, just a few minutes before noon; and was greeted at the door, showed to the bar and told where the bathroom was. When I sat at the bar it was only a short amount of time before the bartender was over. She was courteous and and explain the specials, the beers on tap and grabbing a menu and utensils. I ordered a buffalo chicken wrap which came quickly. It was very under impressive, but very inexpensive. Almost all lettuce, and only a few pieces of chicken and tomato. The beer was great, and the other customers in the bar were almost all funny older gentleman (all characters!). I got a pint glass to go which was wrapped extremely well in brown paper and in a bag, most places just toss you a glass and not breaking it is up you. I walked away very happy but only to go back for beer and give them a second chance with a dinner entree. The other lunches I saw around me looked unimpressive but everyone deserves a second chance.

This seems like more of a casual dining restaurant than a brewpub, but we stopped by anyway for a drink. It was jammed on a Wednesday night at 7 PM, which was a little weird...but whatever. The bartenders were very friendly and took care of us very well. We each got one beer....one friend got their stout, which had the mouthfeel of Guinness, but with flavor. My other friend got their blueberry seasonal, which looked a little odd from when I saw the bartender getting it...it seemed like she just took their light beer, put some blueberry syrup and blueberries in it, and served it. They may have done the same thing for my watermelon ale, which had a HUGE watermelon garnish on it. Regardless, it was solid....even if the flavor was just from the garnish as opposed to the beer itself. I'd like to come back again to try more beers and see what exactly is going on here.

This is my regular place, I love RBS.
A- Average restaurant atmosphere with a fire station sort-of theme. Lots of open space, not really my style but it's still nice.
Q- See selection.
S- Sitting at the bar theres never an issue, table service in the bar area can be slow if it's busy. Never sat in the regular dining room.
These guys get a 5 for service because they give great deals on kegs for my kegerator, and just treat regular customers very well.
S- Average only because, being a microbrewery, they only serve what's made on-site and a few "guest" beers. But thought the selection is less, the quality of what they serve is very good.
F- I LITERALLY have never gotten a single menu item here that I did not like, and only a couple of times have gotten something I didn't think was awesome. This isn't standard pub-grub, everything is good. Highly recommend the beer-battered chicken tenders, red-hot burger, and bread pudding or banana creme brulee.

Went there last night to meet up with some friends, one of which was celebrating his birthday. RBS is located in a high end mall area with plenty of parking though you might not get a spot near the pub.
I haven't been here in 5 years (when I first moved to MD) but upon entering you pick up a firehouse theme, a large bar, and large eating area. There's also a patio area with tables.
We sat at the bar and I ordered a beer sampler @ $6.00 that came with seven 4 ounce beers all placed on a "map" which described each beer. All the beer was low in ABV one was around 3.6 and the highest was 6.1. All in all the beer was good and I went with a stout.
We all split four different appetizers which came out quickly and were quite good and reasonably priced. The main dish (fish and chips) was great as well and went for $13 but a generous serving.
After 10pm beers are only $2 but having to work the next morning we decided to pass. It was a great experience and if I find myself at the mall or shops again I will certainly stop by.

Visited the first time back in March of 2008 and again on Monday. I definitely preferred the first visit due to the beer selection. I seem to recall a barleywine and an oak-aged stout back then, and a watermelon lager and a blueberry lager this time around. The beer is generally competent, and in some cases flirts with excellence, when the good ones are on tap.
Other than that, it's a typical place in a suburban mall parking lot. Expect atmosphere, food, and service on par with your local Applebee's. That's not to say it's bad in the slightest... it's just not going to be hugely original or different.
While other places in the Baltimore area probably stand out better in terms of their beer and their atmosphere and overall experience, this place is still worth a visit. I'd aim for sometime other than summer, though, unless you're a fan of the fruit beers.

This place is in the middle of urban-sprawl-central... which is not my cup of tea. This place is heavily trafficked by tourists and non-beer people. All this takes the atmosphere down a lot for me.
Now the beer. Despite the initial impressions of atmosphere, the beer is actually quite good here! You're not going to find any high-octane Imperial brews here, but if you appreciate high-quality lower alcohol craft beers, then this place is for you. The Brewer here seems to always deliver big, bold flavor and a full mouthfeel, while still managing to keep the alcohol at a manageable level. One I got past my prejudices on the location, I found that this is a place that I can always rely on for some of the best beer in Baltimore!
Occasionally you will find another beer geek bellied up to the bar... which is nice. The food is pretty good, which is also a plus.
The bottom line for me- this is a must-do... and if locals give it a fair shot, they'll find that it can consistently deliver great beer at a great price.

It had been years since my last visit here, so when I found myself right there at the mall I made sure to stop in. Decent place with lots of seating, both inside and outside. Good size bar with with over two dozen seats and some tables in that area as well. Dining room is has another 30 tables or so. Fire house theme that isn't overbearing...as a matter of fact it's not really prominent at all. Service is good and quick and seemed to know the beers fairly well. The food was good, also. The burger was a little small, but the fish and chips is enough for two people. The beer was above average. I had their IPA and a Dunkle Weizen. Both were tasty, however, I felt their IPA could use a little more oomph. I would visit here again if I am in the area with family.

Red Brick Station/White Marsh Brewing is a brewpub with firehouse inspired theming, even though the place is just in a modern strip mall area known as "The Avenue". The place is split into both a bar area and dining room as well as an outdoor patio section. Each place can hold a good amount of people, the bar alone around 30. Parking is free, though sometimes difficult to get a spot close to the restaurant.
Besides a few Domestic bottles, the place also has around 7 of their own brews on-tap at all times; 5 staple beers ranging from a light lager to an IPA to a stout. 2 of the taps are seasonals that vary throughout the year. I've had several of them, most of them are pretty average, but better than most domestic bottled offerings.
Food-wise the place has a wide range of offerings, and lots of them are appealing. From sandwiches, wraps, and salads to burgers, BBQ, steaks, seafood, and pasta, there is definitely something for everyone to enjoy. Prices are very reasonable, and service is good.
While not a place I rush to every month, it's definitely an enjoyable place for dinner and beers at least a few times a year when I find myself in the area. It may not have the most extreme beers on the planet, but it's a good place to meet up with friends who aren't "that" into the whole microbrew scene yet.

Only about 1 mile from I-95 exit 67B. It is located in one of those upscale shopping malls. There is plenty of outdoor seating for the warmer months, but inside there is a large pub area and a seperate dining area to the right. The pub area had a large rectangular bar that could seat upwards of 30 people. Nice open view with plenty of glass overlooking the shopping area. Loads of firemans gear is used for decoration here.
Beer wise they had 7 on tap, 5 of the house beers (IPA, Golden Ale, Light, Red, and a Stout) with a special high hopped Amber and a Scotch Ale. The beers we sampled were fresh and of decent quality. Beers won't blow you away here, but are solid for the experience.
Food was really good, especially the fish and chips. The bartender was prompt, friendly, and knew the beers.
The wife and I were very happy with the break from the drive on I-95 to enjoy a nice lunch and a few pints. We'll definitely stop here again next road trip.
