Chad Wells is leaving Alewife. His last day at the downtown tavern is Saturday. Wells is headed to Annapolis, where he will be "re-concepting" an existing restaurant - he wouldn't say which one. But the chef, probably best known for his culinary experiments with snakehead and other invasive species, was excited about shaking up the conservative Annapolis dining scene. "I want to a be a front runner in establishing local and invasive food in Annapolis," Wells said. "I want to put my heart out there with food.

From the depths of downtown, mere feet from the Hippodrome Theater , Alewife has been delivering dozens of beers on tap and a dimly lit aesthetic that has stood the test of time. It's primarily identified as a beer bar, but Alewife does indeed have a craft cocktail list put together in part by bartender Kelsea Zeglin with a bevy of house-made ingredients. One of the more unusual cocktails on the list is the Spicy Suze, a libation that defies convention. It's roots are in the margarita, but it branches out in a few twists that make it worth a slurp.

Eight months after leaving Alewife, the downtown tavern that he helped to open in 2010, Chad Wells is back as executive chef. "I'm extraordinarily happy to be back. [We] need each other," Wells said. "We're a family here. " Best known for his 11-ounce smoke burger and his culinary experiments with invasive species like the snake head, Wells left Alewife to take over the kitchen at The Rockfish in Annapolis. At the time, Wells said he was looking forward to shaking up the conservative Annapolis dining.

Picture a curvy-but-cute, sassy-yet-sweet lass with a passion for beer. She is buxom, bawdy, smooth-bodied and straight up. Is she every man's fantasy? Pretty close. She's the image that developed in my mind when when I tried Alewife's signature beer cocktail, the Hop Betty. A beer … cocktail? Talk about a dream come true. Don't question it; just trust general manager and co-owner Bryan Palombo and his team on this one. After all, this is revolutionary stuff here. Palombo takes pride in claiming that his cocktail is the first hops-infused drink in the city.

Over the past five years, the west side of downtown has been one of the city's most unforgiving neighborhoods for new bars. They open and close here as quickly as it takes 8.9 percent alcohol to slip into your bloodstream. Alewife, the new beer hall at Eutaw and Fayette streets, is hoping to turn the trend on its head with sheer size and suds selection. Billed as a high-end beer hall, the Daniel Lanigan-owned bar boasts of having a sprawling beer list — 40 on tap and 100 bottled varieties.

They're here!Yes, the first bluefish has been caught and checked in. It is more than a rumor.Historically, rumors of bluefish catches abound this time of year. The problem is that there are few people fishing. Few people create few reports, and rumors are easily accepted for the real thing.But on Wednesday, Guy Mundy from Lexington Park caught a 12-pound, 8-ounce bluefish while trolling an 11/0 Crippled Alewife at the mouth ofthe Potomac River. Mundy was a passenger aboard Capt. Jim Butler's charter boat.

Chad Wells made a name for himself at Alewife, the popular tavern across from the Hippodrome Theatre , first with a sublime, spectacularly smoked hamburger and then by working magic on the fearsome invasive species known as the snakehead. Wells grilled snakehead, sauteed it and, memorably, folded it into a bracingly good ceviche with orange, mango, peppers and cucumber. A few months back, Wells packed up his knives and left Alewife for Annapolis. He left his burger behind but took his ceviche with him to the Rockfish, a sprawling restaurant that sits on the gateway to Annapolis' cozy Eastport neighborhood.
