Was looking for a bar Friday night during my visit to Baltimore last weekend and decided on Alewife because I thought I had heard something good about it at one point in time. I was pleasantly surprised upon walking in when I saw there were 40 beers on tap.
It was a Friday night so the place was full but definitely not crowded. The atmosphere was laid back and enjoyable. We were able to get seats at the bar almost immediately.
Both the draft and bottle selections were good. The service was also good. I didn't try any of the food.
I did feel that the prices were maybe a little high but I had a good experience and I would come back if in the area.

For a beer destination bar in Baltimore Alewife is up there. Great decor in an old style bank. The bar itself is beautiful. Bartenders are always on point and know their product. Don't leave without sampling the food menu. Burgers are bangin'. Conversation is easy and the crowd is pretty diverse from theatre crowd to University of Maryland medical grad student happy hours. Alewife is only 5 blocks north of Camden Yards so if you're a beer snob and want something nice before you go buy $8 Miller Lites at the ball game than hit this place up for sure.
Bring your wallet though. Those beers add up. You get what you pay for though.

My wife and I (from Boston) were on a sports trip to see Camden Yards and Ravens Stadium. We found Alewife advertised on Beer Advocate and made it a MUST destination. It ended up being 4 blocks from our hotel. We stopped in for lunch and we had a BALL! Great selection of brews and we struck up conversations with three or so employees. I believe our server was named Joe, and he knew about all the beers. Talked hockey with another server (awesome), and someone from the kitchen talked to us about REAL Baltimore crab cakes.
Go to Alewife if you are in Baltimore. Sit at the bar and tell them you came from Beer Advocate. It's a really cool building too. It was originally a bank and some of the vaults are now rooms.

Overall Alewife is fantastic, good beer, good food, interesting(but usually great) service. As a beer place alone its very good but the selection while expansive (40 or so taps) doesn't seem greatly balanced. also it seems like they are out of a lot of bottles on the menu. Don't get me wrong, I am stoked to have a bar like this around, but its just that sometimes the selection seems weighted too heavily towards one genre. The food is wonderful, great jazzed up versions of pub favorites. and they do a late night menu for stragglers.
Beautiful dark wood interior with lovely large windows, but you never know whether its going to be crowded with loud music or calm and quiet.
Honestly this is my go to bar, despite the fact I live moments from max's. Its got its warts but it rivals the brewers art as the best beer and meal place in town.
