Photography: Food: Guinness Open Gate Brewery, Baltimore 7/7/23

I was in Baltimore for a family reunion earlier this month. I caught up with some cousins on my father’s side of the family. My mom came with me, and it was the first time that we have traveled together with me being an adult. And it was the first time, that she had been to Charm City.

We were all staying at a hotel not far from Baltimore-Washington International Airport, and as it turned out, it was a short drive away from The Guinness Open Gate Brewery.

Of course, I was exceedingly happy — because Guinness. But the food was great and to see family I hadn’t seen in some time made my heart very full.
