One of the great benefits of the craft beer phenomenon of the last twenty years is that small, local breweries have popped up all over the country. One of the pioneers of that movement was the pride of Maryland beer lovers, the DuClaw Brewing Company. In addition to this company’s Baltimore brewery and headquarters, DuClaw also operates a full-service restaurant in Arundel Mills.
Almost immediately after opening, this spacious brewpub became one of the most popular happy hour locations around. Yelp reviewers recommend the $6 gyro plate or $5 sliders if you’re feeling hungry, but this place is more than just a popular happy hour destination. Standouts on the dinner menu include the shareable duck fat fries, the jalapeno crab BLT, and the Juicy Lucy stuffed burger. It also features local Maryland wines and spirits, in addition to DuClaw brews on tap. You can even bring your pup, as dogs are permitted (on leash) on the patio.
