Brew House No. 16, a restaurant and bar, is set to open this October in Mt. Vernon after receiving unanimous approval from the Baltimore City liquor board.

Located on North Calvert Street across from Iggies, the bar will operate out of a former fire station—the “No. 16” is the station’s old number. Outdoor seating will also be available.

Brew House No. 16 will be run by brewmaster Ian Hummell and his father, Harry, and will feature Chesapeake-inspired cuisine including oysters and crab pretzels.

The “gastropub” will also have an on-site microbrewery that will include international and American beers. Hummel studied beer making in Berlin, Germany.

“[Brew House No. 16] will be a fun, friendly gathering spot for people who love great beer and food,” says Marion Winik, the restaurant’s vice president of marketing.

We’re personally excited for another option in Mt. Vernon, as another neighborhood brewpub (we won’t name names) tends to always fill up fast.
