Guided Hampden Craft Brew Walk
Time & Location
About The Event
The walk you’ve been waiting for… Hampden Craft Brew Walk. Curated by Mixolo Go Solo, as part of our “Love the City You’re With” solo-friendly tours, we’ll taste and tour each of Hampden’s iconic brewhouses.
Our walking tour includes three of the greatest and, arguably, the most resilient brewers in Baltimore and beyond. Plus-ones are welcome, but never required with Mixolo.
All three breweries have sparked a local maker spirit fostering explosive growth in local craft breweries and spirits alike. Each started from modest beginnings, with friends, family and a lot of love and sweat - right here in Baltimore. People come from far and wide for the craft beer on tap in a 1-mile radius in Hampden for beer, fun and community.
We’ll travel an easy 1-mile loop with Nepenthe Homebrew first on the list. We’ll tour their brand spankin’ new digs on Falls Road just steps from the famed Avenue in Hampden and enjoy a guided tasting plus one 1/2 pint beer, drinker's choice. They started out as a homebrew supply store in their former residence, Meadow Mill; now they’re a brewpub and a supply house. We’ll fuel up with hearty snacks there for our 3/4 mile walk to Union Collective, home of Union Craft Brewing.
Union Craft Brewing:
Union will be drinker’s choice, with up to four 4-ounce tastes OR two ½ pints. Union Craft Brewing has come a long way from their modest digs on Union Avenue in Hampden where they were bursting at the seams. We’ll tour their new, massive operations and get the scoop on their ambitious effort to advance other local makers, from spirits to coffee to ice cream and more in their brainchild, Union Collective, just opened last fall off 41st Avenue in Hampden.
Waverly Brewing Company :
After our time at Union, we’ll head over to laid back and intimate Waverly overlooking the mighty Jones Falls for our final tour and guided tasting plus one full-sized beer, taster's choice. We’ll have some more light snacks to soak up the suds.
What’s the Itinerary?
We’ll meet and park at Waverly Brewing Company, 1625 Union Avenue our final tour and tasting stop.
We will depart Waverly at 11:45PM sharp to walk up the hill to Falls Road for our first visit with Nepenthe.
We’ll depart Nepenthe at 1PM to walk to Union Brewery. We’ll take the 1:30PM tour and follow that up with a tasting, drinker’s choice, of four 4-oz drinks or two 1/2- pint drinks .
After the Union visit, we will head back to Waverly for our final tasting and tour, beginning at approximately 3PM. We’ll have some light snacks on hand to soak up the suds.
We recommend limiting beer purchases to pace yourself for our trip and ensure we stay on schedule for our gracious hosts. Though the tour ends at approximately 4PM, our final stop, Waverly is open until 7PM.

Our special guest guide and beer SME, Brennen Jensen, will be with us to enhance the experience. An awarded journalist and Hampden resident, Jensen travels the world in search of great beer. His love and knowledge of Baltimore’s exceptional craft beer are evident in his articles. Many may remember Baltimore’s beloved City Paper and Jensen’s Charmed Life column now culminated in a book of the same name.
