Yeah! I get to write the first reveiw for this establishment. As we all know, Gordon Biersch is a national chain that specializes in German lagers -- with a Czech pilsner thrown in. Beer-wise, this location, which has opened recently in the Harbor East area, is no different from the others. The brews are brewed on-site and fresh if unremarkable. So, after a few hours luxuriating at Max's< I stopped in to check it out. There is a very active patio alive with tourists and locals. The interior is somewhat dark and minimalist. There is a large open bar area that opens onto the patio. The large dining room is dispersed with tables and busy with scurrying servers, with more than a few bringing GB's signature garlic fries (which I usually avoid as they overwhelm the palate and render it useless in tasting beer); that said, their Southwest Egg Rolls are excellent. They have a decent Happy Hour, so it should go gently on the wallet.
Look, Baltimore is a Beer Town, so there was going to come a time when the chains start opening here - in any case, I've been the rare Beer Advocate who has supported them, so long as brewers are given individuality. I suppose a Rock Bottom is not that far behind. It will never replace Max's, Mahaffey, Brewer's Art or Alewife, but then it is not supposed to.
