This is a great little pub in Federal Hill. Their beer selection is nice, and the price is nicer. They have 2 for $3 all the time. No mixing like at The Wharf Rat, but who cares. The staff is always friendly, and the service is quick. I go there for the beer special and their pizza. I cannot begin to describe how good this pizza is. You have to try it to believe it. The pizza selection is incredible, and I have not had one yet that has not blown me away. To top it off, you get 2 beers for $3, and good beer. They have a good Brown, Red, Porter, and a GREAT Hop Dog beer. They also mix the "flavors" for delicious creations. Plus, you can take your best friend with you. Dogs are always welcome at the Thirsty Dog Pub, as long as they behave. But that is nothing different from their rule for humans.

Thirsty Dog is a breath of fresh air on busy Cross Street. Maybe it's the fact that it's sandwiched in amongst obnoxiously busy places (McGerks, Mad River, etc) that explains some of my fondness for Thirsty, but it is definitely worth checking out. As other reviews mentioned, the $3 beers are served in pairs of small mugs. There's a selection of ~10 brews on tap, with an emphasis, I think, on beers more palatable to the ladies (Blueberry, Peach, etc).
The single-serving pizzas (available 'till 1:30am) are a welcome addition to the beers. A handful of Hoppy Dogs and a chicken pesto pizza is a great way to end the night.

Blink and you'll miss Pub Dog, just another storefront in a crowded shopping-and-dining area of Federal Hill right across the Cross Street Market. There are so many pubs and restaurants around here (the beer-friendly Abbey Burger Bistro is next door to the Dog), you may be hard-pressed to choose one.
But Pub Dog deserves a chance. It might not look like much from the outside, or even inside by the bar, but look around and you'll discover a really nice, cozy and expansive townhouse, with countless nooks and crannies and booths and fireplaces. When the weather is cold outside, what a great place to hang out and be warm the Dog is! I like the third-floor room, with a shuffleboard and no people. My own little hangout...
We sat right at the bar and service was excellent, although it was an early afternoon/evening and the place was empty. Still, very friendly chicks, some of them almost passably hot.
Beer? 12 taps, all house-brewed. They are all pretty amateurish. We had the "Imperial Dog", which is billed as "an aggressively hopped Double IPA" and it tasted like an American Pale Ale with some mild hops. This will give you an idea of how the Dog works his beers. Nothing to get excited about. But they're serviceable! Their seasonal oatmeal stout was actually *good*.
The funny/weird thing is that beer and water both come in twos. Two small mugs of beer for four bucks. Two mugs of water for... well, nothing.
Food is mostly pizza, of course. Very good pizza! I've had other pizzas around B'more and they are pretty poor. This one my wife and I really enjoyed. Fresh, crispy, thin-crust, loaded with quality ingredients... and good price too, all of them under ten dollars.
Six beers and a pizza came up to 21 bucks. Talk about cheap!
I would come back. For the atmosphere, the yummy pizza, the shuffleboard, the cozy fireplaces and booths, and also for the beer, why not...

Thirsty Dog is situated on Cross Street, across from the Cross Street Market, in the heart of Federal Hill. It is on the same block as Ryleigh's. It is currently called "Dog Pub" after lossing a court case against Thirsty Dog Brewery, which sucks.
A comfortable atmosphere awaits you inside. Old-time photos adorn the walls downstairs in the thin bar. Tables are in the back. Upstairs has a second bar, the kitchen, and some additional tables.
They only serve their beers 2 for $3. The beers are contracted out from Dominion and are tasty. There were about four or five to choose from. The service, even when packed, was quick, friendly, and helpful.
The most outstanding piece for the place is the food. Mostly standard pub grub is large and cheap. The homemade, personal-sized pizzas are awesome.
On another note, the health dept came down hard on Thirsty Dog and a few other bars concerning dogs in bars. It is no longer allowed here...

Good beer, very cheap, whats not to love? All their beers are contract brewed by Dominion, which if you're from this area you know makes great beer. They about about 12 house beers on tap, including their velvety smooth stout. Beers are cheap, 2 12oz mugs for $3. The styles are all run of the mill (IPA, Pale Ale, Brown Ale, Wheat Ale, Blueberry Ale, Amber, Irish Stout, etc) but all are done quite well. Atmosphere is cool, with pictures of people's dogs plastered all over the walls. It can get pretty crowded on popular nights, but the nice back area and upstairs helps to aleviate those problems. Another cool thing is you can bring your dog in here. Food is good late night snack food, pizzas, etc. Nothing more, nothing less, but its tasty.

I went to this place with some friends on a Friday for dinner. You are responsible for finding your own tables here, and it seemed like it could be chaotic later in the evenings. The beer selection was pretty standard, but they did offer a lot of mixing options. The beers didn't really stand out, but of the ones I had I enjoyed. I particularly enjoyed the idea of 2 beers for $4. The pizzas were fantastic, although a bit small and expensive. Once you get a table, the service is good, but it can take awhile before you see waitstaff again. Overall, the place was unique and made for a fun evening. Worth checking out.

I've never particularly liked going to this place as the beer is not very impressive. Although there are 11 different beers as well as another X number of mixed beer, there are only about 5 beers worth drinking. These five have never ever impressed me, even thought they all taste different every batch.
All the beers taste like watered down versions of what would have been pretty decent beer.
In any case, the pizza is delicious, but it is a little overpriced or perhaps not be enough.
The environment is good and the wait staff has always been quick and friendly.

Keep in mind that I haven't been a college student in more than a decade...or two. The place has a pretty "grunge" feel to it: dark, chaotic, a bit cramped even though it wasn't packed.
We ordered at the second-floor bar which was reminiscent of a Chinese take-out counter except with beer paraphernalia replacing the Year-of-the-some-animal stuff and went for a place to drink. We went up to the top floor where the tabletop shuffleboard is. It wasn't the shuffleboard that made me feel old, the kids were playing it, but the couple in the one corner attempting to suck each others' face off. Try not to read that as derision, just a little surprise tinged with a shade of green.
Anyway, two mugs of beer for $4.50 is pretty damn good and the beer was actually quite good. I never thought to take review notes, but I liked the Brown Dog and my buddy thought highly of the White Dog, despite the fact that put a slice of orange in the beer.
We didn't eat there since we had just had some of the best burgers ever at the Abbey Burger Bistro just down the street.

Located in Fells Point. A friend and I stumbled across this interesting place. It is long narrow and is two stories high I believe. They've got a pretty good beer selection, albeit very heavily weighted toward fruit-laced wheat recipes. Not my favorite, but if you're trying to please the most people you've got to tread the middle of the road. I get it. I've had all of their current offerings and my favorites are the Imperial Dog (a slightly less than double IPA) and the Brown Dog (a sturdy American Style brown ale). They've also got a very good oatmeal stout that they cart out during the winter months. Much better than the stout on their year-round offering.
One of the biggest complaints I have about the beer selection from DOG is that it's too safe. They have 11 standard offerings including 4 fruited weizens, a blonde, amber, IPA, double-IPA, traditional stout, an English style session ale, and a witbier. Where are the lagers? This place is very popular for their pizza from what I gather. I haven't tried so. Perhaps next time.
