Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant


With more than 30 locations nationwide, including three restaurants in Maryland and D.C., it’s no wonder Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant has tapped Baltimore as its latest outpost. The choice was natural, says Tom Dargen, director of Brewing Operations: “Baltimore is a great beer town and has sophistication without pretension, and that fits our concept, too.” The company has looked to local talent, hiring former Brewer’s Art brewer and Parkside Fine Food and Spirits proprietor Chris Cashell as the restaurant’s head brewer (several employees on the brewery side of operations are veterans of The Wharf Rat, according to Dargen). Along with a full menu of burgers, pizzas, pastas and entrees, expect to find on tap Gordon Biersch’s five flagship beers, a revolving seasonal beer, plus local offerings from breweries around the region. “Sometimes it’s difficult to put local beers on our menus because the quality isn’t there,” says Dargen. “The difficulty in this city is how do you choose?” Open daily for lunch and dinner. 1000 Lancaster St., Suite B, 410-230-9501, http://www.gordonbiersch.com
