Tonight, Cedar Point Bar & Kitchen is hosting a special snobby beer tap takeover they’re calling “What the Brett!” The night will be a celebration of high-brow beers brewed with brettanomyces, sours and other good stuff.
In addition to the special beers there will also be food specials like eggplant caviar, lobster mac ‘n cheese and champange mussels.
Beers range from $6 to $8 and are $2 off during happy hour from 6 to 7 p.m.
Is there a better combination than crabs and beer in the summer? Fishtown’s Cedar Point Bar & Kitchen says no and they have your fix. On Wednesday, July 17th, they’re bringing a taste of Maryland and the Eastern Shore to the corner of Cedar and Norris. From 5 p.m. onward you can mix and match your Maryland crab favorites with awesome beers such as Evolution Lot 6 DIPA, Evolution Summer Session, Heavy Seas Loose Cannon, Heavy Seas Small Craft, DuClaw Misery, Dogfish Head Festina Peche, Brewer’s Art Ozzy, Brewer’s Art Resurrection and of course, National Bohemian.

Fishtown’s newest eatery, Cedar Point Bar & Kitchen has gotten a lot of buzz since opening this spring at a six-point intersection less than a mile from Johnny Brenda’s, the neighborhood’s flagship restaurant. Sadly, the kitchen didn’t live up to the hype on my visit. From the mushy BBQ grilled cheese sandwich to the way-undercooked greens to the fried pickles that lost their crispy batter jackets at the slightest touch, dinner was a big disappointment. The chicken-and-waffles and goat-cheese-filled beet ravioli (with beets replacing pasta in the dish) only slightly raised the bar from the absolute bottom. Still, vegans may appreciate the many options the menu holds for them (including a vegan “cheese” board), and the bartenders are warmer than most in this too-cool-for-school neighborhood. But unless you’re a liquor-loving vegetable enthusiast, there’s really very little reason to spend any time here.
