Word on the street is that the Fells Point DuClaw is closing after tonight. I saw in Sam Sessa's blog earlier today, and that was confirmed by Elizabeth Large and BeerInBaltimore. I guess I am a little surprised, I did enjoy going out there when I lived in Fells Point. While the service wasn't the best, it was nice to have a few beers out on the porch in nice weather. It was off the street, and you have a nice view of the harbor.
Apparently business wasn't so hot in the winter season, how I have no idea, but anyways they did. This complicated with lease disagreements has caused this location to close up shop. The other four locations in the burbs will not be affected. There aren't many brew pubs in the city, and it's a shame to see this one go. Ideally it would be nice if another one opened up in town.
Now with DuClaw gone, and in this type of economy, we get to look forward to months and months of a large, empty space in Fells Point! So, if you loved DuClaw, or atleast tolerated it, head on down tonight for a pint or two, because tomorrow they'll be no mas.
