Catherine's to replace Fed Hill bar Taps
The Baltimore Sun's Midnight Sun blog, by Erik Maza, reports that the Federal Hill bar formerly operated as Taps, in the old Craftsmen Club building at Fort and Charles Streets, was bought by Marc McFaul, owner of the Ropewalk Tavern, Dark Horse Saloon, and Stalking Horse, and is slated to be reopened possibly by the end of the year after some remodeling--including, according to the comments, two large windows to lighten up the previously cavern-like interior.
Question: Ropewalk Tavern has a relatively large beer selection, one that many folks in the hinterlands would kill for. Why does that bar remain relatively unnoticed by beer enthusiasts in this area?
