A reader tipped me off to this possibility. It's not exactly a "new" place per se, having been in business for over a decade, but Hellas Restaurant & Lounge on Veterans Highway at Benfield Boulevard in Millersville has recently joined the craft-beer movement, installing a 20-line draft system, a larger bottled beer selection, and a "Resident Beer Expert," Joey Marchiano. Recent sightings have included Brooklyn Winter Ale, Olivers Winter Warmer, Victory St. Victorius Doppelbock, Aventinus, and Weyerbacher Blithering Idiot; a Flying Dog Pint Night is scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 13th.
Anyone been? I have contacts in the northwest suburbs (wasteland, largely), Howard County, northeast, and Columbia/Laurel way, but Anne Arundel outside of Annapolis proper has largely been a wasteland, the presence of The Ram's Head chain and Lures notwithstanding.
