Racers Cafe and Hamiltons Tavern

Backstory: Brad from BeerInBaltimore.com organized a gathering at Racer's Cafe on Harford Road to watch the Olympic hockey gold medal game between the United States and Canada. Having never been to Racers but hearing good things about it for a while, it was a good opportunity to finally swing by.

Brad was there as well as several other local beer writers and Twitter friends so it was a really nice time.

Racers has about 17 beers on tap, which you order at the bar by number assigned to them on the big chalkboard inside. They also have a deal where you can get three mugs of beer for I think $5.

Its a blue collar place with free peanuts which you can toss on the floor. Next door is an attached packaged goods store mostly stocked with beers which can be enjoyed at Racers (see picture No. 3 a barrel aged Weyerbacher Double Simcoe IPA).

After the game several members of our group headed over to Hamilton Tavern. It had nice food (I went with the jalapeno cheese fritters and a delicious meatball sub) and four overall taps, two of which were devoted to Brewers Art beers.

Du-u-u-de...... at least a clear photo of the Racers' menu board would have been worth the effort.....
