Baltimore has it pretty good when it comes to stadiums, the best in the country according to Stadium Journey. In 2016, the website reviewed 761 stadiums – from horse and auto racing to college, minor league, and professional sports facilities – and rated the Baltimore Orioles at Oriole Park at Camden Yards as the #1 in experience in North America and the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium as #14, making it the top NFL stadium experience.
The craft brewing and distilling industry continues to expand around the country, including in South Baltimore which saw its own significant growth in this area in 2016. Diamondback Brewing Company opened a production facility in late 2016, and Sagamore Spirit, Suspended Brewing Company, and Checkerspot are set to do the same in 2017.
South Baltimore is gaining a new brewery as Checkerspot Brewing Company is opening a 10,000 sq. ft. brewery and tap room at 175 W. Ostend St. adjacent to M&T Bank Stadium, the South Baltimore Neighborhood, and Sharp-Leadenhall. Checkerspot is taking over a vacant suite at the 65,000 sq. ft. office building owned by Himmelrich Associates.
The 48,000 sq. ft. venue will take the place of Paradox; a currently-vacant warehouse facing Ostend St., which was most recently the home to a ceramic tile company; and a smaller building connecting Paradox to the warehouse.
There will be 50 stations throughout South Baltimore, Southeast Baltimore, Southwest Baltimore, Downtown, Mount Vernon, and Station North, as well as stations at Johns Hopkins University, Johns Hopkins Hospital, and Druid Hill Park.
