We are offering pickup of carryout beer and food and plenty of outdoor seating. Taproom hours are Mon-Wed 4pm-9pm, Thurs 4-10pm and Fri&Sat 12pm-10pm and Sun 12pm-8pm.

We no longer deliver, so please order Checkerspot cans from your local liquor store for delivery!

We have protocols in place to disinfect the bar, POS system, restrooms and tables & chairs and anything else that comes into contact with customers regularly and in between customers. Our bartenders always wear gloves and facemasks.

Anyone must wear a facemask when entering and inside the taproom and maintain at least 6ft distance from others.

Do you have parking?

Yes and a lot of it! Directly across the street is a large, free parking lot on Sharp St. Also available are the lots on either side of Ostend St. as well as around the corner on Leadenhall St. The only exception to this is home Ravens games when the lots turn into tailgate lots.

Are dogs allowed?

Yes, but not on the 2nd floor taproom.

Are you kid friendly?

Yes, but children must be closely attended by an adult at all times.

What are your gluten free options?

All of our beer is treated with an enzyme that reduces gluten below detectable limits. One of our owners, Rob, has a gluten sensitivity, so he has to be able to drink the beer too! Our beer is brewed with barley and some wheat, so cannot be called truly gluten free. We occasionally have cider available. We also have several gluten free food options.

What are your non-alcoholic alternatives?

We always have something non-alcoholic like fresh pressed apple cider, locally fruited lemonade, fresh pressed local juices, and birch beer.

Do you have food?

We do. There is prepared food available behind the bar at all times, including items like pickles, jerky, Amish cheese plates, smoked salmon, and Cornish game hens. We always have hot food specials Thurs 4 - 9pm, Fri & Sat 12 - 9pm and Sun 12 - 7pm. We have a full kitchen available for catering and special events as well.

Do you have private space for events?

We do! The second floor has a private bar and can fit about 150 people comfortably. We have hosted engagements, birthday parties, showers, wedding rehearsal dinners, anniversaries and other fun events. We have also hosted several corporate events, beer pairing dinners and fundraiser events. Please contact denis@checkersptobrewing.com for more information and pricing.
