On August 8, 2009, the kids and I drove up to Westminster, MD to watch Ravens Training Camp at McDaniel College. I love going to Ravens Training Camp because of the…..beer! There’s a brewery restaurant in Westminster called Johanssons Dining House. We always pull into Johanssons for lunch after going to training camp.
Johanssons offers a four-beer sampler, and since they had five house beers on tap, I ordered the sampler plus a pint:
- Honest Ale, a light ale
- Whistle Stop Amber
- Recession Wit
- German Alt
- Hoodle Head IPA (guess which beer I ordered by the pint)
My favorite beer was the IPA and I wish I had time for another pint. I also liked the Recession Ale, which sells for only $2 a pint. Beyond the house beers, they have a nice guest beer selection. The food and service were excellent.
Johanssons is on Main Street in downtown Westminster, just a few blocks from the McDaniel College campus. The restaurant is in an old building, which gives it a lot of character. The English-style tavern area is very inviting.
This is the fifth year in a row that Benjamin, Emily, and I have gone to Ravens Training Camp, followed by lunch at Johanssons. I love this family tradition!
