No "Dog Pub" in Fells Point

Man, that title can be misread so many ways.

There was apparently a good reason why the Dog Pub in Federal Hill didn't return my calls about the reports that they were seeking to acquire the old Admiral's Cup pub in Fells Point.

In spite of several reports from usually reliable sources, it didn't happen. A group of investors apparently headed up by the owners of Kali's Court down the street have apparently signed a contract on the building.

Someone at the Dog Pub said yesterday "We were looking at getting [the Admiral's Cup], but it just didn't work out."

But if you're thirsty for Dog Brewing beers, be advised that J.A. Murphy's at 1703 Aliceanna St. (the former Lulu's Off Broadway), which just celebrated its 100th day/evening in business, is now serving Raspberry Dog and Hoppy Dog. This would be the second draft account for the brewery/pub, after Muggsy's Mug House and an occasional firkin to Metropolitan Coffeehouse.
