Quick Q for thought:
Why is there seemingly no good beer bar in Pikesville, or Northwest Baltimore, or Owings Mills or Reisterstown?
We have good beer on the northeastern quadrant/corner (Racers, Hamilton Tavern, Red Brick Station, etc.). North: Grand Cru and some good liquor stores. West: Ellicott Mills, Judges Bench, etc. Fells Point, Canton, Federal Hill, downtown. Good beer follows money (or vice versa), so I can't/don't expect anything in Brooklyn Park, southwest Baltimore, West Baltimore, etc.
But what's the Pikesville corridor's excuse? The money is there for upscale dining and shopping--boutique coffee shops and clothing, art, a Trader Joe's. There is a historically heavy Jewish concentration up the Park Heights corridor, but Jews aren't historically teetotalers like, say, Mormons or Methodists have been.
