Checkerspot Brewing Company
We’re proud to bring you an array of small-batch, thoughtfully crafted beers–inspired by nature, but served right here in Baltimore, the city we love.
The Baltimore Checkerspot is the Maryland state butterfly, which embodies our belief that without local appreciation, nature, and quality ingredients, great beer does not exist.
There’s something for everyone here.
Free tours every Saturday: 3pm & 5pm
OPENING TUESDAYS STARTING 1/28
We will start opening on Tuesdays this Jan. 28th at 4pm.
As a special for the first Tuesday open, we will have 50% off beers (excluding IPAs and high ABV beers) and a nice spread of food from the Checkerspot kitchen out for FREE!
Come say hi to Beazly behind the bar for the first Tuesday we open!
