Wharf Rat/Pratt St. Ale House Update

Made a quick stop at (translation: I found a meter with time on it outside) the soon-to-be-former Wharf Rat-Camden Yards this afternoon. Considerable remodeling and reconstruction apace; contractors say they are on pace to complete in time for a reopening on March 10th. In a shocker to those used to the old layout, the bar back that dated to the Wharf Rat's predecessor, P.J. Crickett's, is now gone--as is every last bit of beer/breweriana memorabilia, presumably in storage pending reinstallation or possible "thinning of the herd" (anyone else want to be at that sale, if it happens?).

And, yes, the contractors report that brewing has continued in spite of the reconstruction! Kudos to Steve Jones!
