The Brewer's Art

Set in a grand 1906 "townhouse-mansion," The Brewer's Art opened in Baltimore's midtown in 1996 and has been offering unique ales and innovative fare since then. Initially a brewpub focussing on the on-premise sales of its eclectic line of beer, the brewery expanded in 2002 to quadruple its fermentation capacity and to begin selling its beer elsewhere. After a spell of selling beers in the SE PA area in the mid-2000s, high demand in their home market led them to channel all production to the metro Baltimore area, which has kept the 8.5 bbl brewhouse very busy - the 1000 draft barrels produced annually that go to outside accounts are spoken for as soon as they leave the building.

In 2008, The Brewer's Art started a contract brewing partnership with Sly Fox Brewing. Production of 750 ml cork-and-cage-finished bottles of several brands was the initial project, followed in 2010 by 12 ounce cans of Resurrection Ale. As for the draught products, the brewery prioritized for its home market until Sly Fox's recent opening of their new plant in Pottstown, which enabled them to produce more canned Resurrection. The logical next step was to reenter the Philadelphia market, and the Brewer's Art team is excited to return to one of the nations most vibrant beer cities.
