Restaurant with extensive beer list?

I am looking for a venue to host my son's 21st birthday. We will be a party of about 35 people and want a seated dinner on a Saturday evening in June. I am looking for either a restaurant with a good beer list or a brew pub with really good food. Something a bit nicer than a bar but not too fancy-shmancy for the college boys. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Heavy Seas Alehouse

Owl Bar in the Belvedere is a classic baltimore place.

Ellicott Mills Brewing Co in Ellicott City is very good for both food and craft beer.

Thanks for the suggestions! I actually live in Ellicott City and think the food not very good at Ellicott Mills. Will definitely check out the others you recommend.

Max's Taphouse has the most extensive beer list in the city, and the college boys will love it. Just check and see if they can take a large party. They're usually pretty crammed on Saturdays.

How is the food at Max's? Website looks like a typical bar and I want to make sure the food is a step or two above typical bar food. We're not only having the college crowd, but grandparents and other family as well. Thanks!

I don't think Max's is a good fit for the family crowd, and i can't picture any private dining area there.

I would look into Alewife or maybe Abbey Burger Bistro. I've been to private events at both and they definitely have decent beer lists.

a World of Beers opened in Locust Point. haven't checked it yet so I don't know if it's good for a group of 35.

I also live near Main Street Ellicott City. not a fan of Ellicott Mills either. too bad.

Red Brick Station in White Marsh serves their own http://www.redbrickstation.com/ They do banquets. The size is large enough to accommodate your party. Free parking http://tinyurl.com/gnikrap-eerf And they serve entrees, pub food & sandwiches.

And they have outdoor seating in June.
