Ram's Head to expand, hopes to brew own beer

Ram's Head Tavern, a West Street landmark claiming to serve "The World's Best Beer," will expand on Oct. 1 into a former dry cleaners.

But the tavern has a more ambitious plan for one year from now -- to be the first brew pub in Annapolis, said Wayne Fertitta, the general manager.

Following the lead of brew pubs in Baltimore and Washington, Ram's Head plans to make and sell beer on the premises.

The tavern's goal is to serve "the freshest possible brew," he said. But that cannot happen until the City Council passes a law to allow beer brewing in Annapolis, Mr. Fertitta said.

When the 12-year-old tavern expands in October, there will be about 40 additional seats, including 11 bar stools. The tavern now holds 48 patrons, with room for 50 on the patio.

The number of taps will increase to 34 from 18 to allow bartenders to draw a greater variety of brews.
