Baltimore Brew

Baltimore Brew is an independent daily news website, staffed by veteran journalists committed to providing fresh, fair, insightful and reliable reporting about Baltimore. A fixture in Baltimore since 2010, The Brew specializes in aggressive accountability reporting – we look at campaign cash, development deals, government spending, city services and more.

Our reporting takes us beyond City Hall to city streets, including the city’s most neglected neighborhoods and vulnerable people.

Justice, jobs, housing, economic development, the environment, education, youth, transportation, architecture, preservation, urban design, neighborhood conflicts over development and liquor issues – all these and more get coverage from The Brew. We also publish commentary from people with special expertise and perspectives that deserve to be part of the civic conversation.

Our mission is to bring transparency and accountability to powerful governmental and corporate institutions and to cover issues that matter to all neighborhoods in the city. Open-eyed and big-hearted journalism can shake up conventional wisdom and shine a light on ingrained and institutionalized attitudes and policies – that’s part of our mission too. Along the way, we try to spotlight the neighborhood leaders and lively personalities who make this city, in spite of its massive challenges, a great place to live.

Baltimore Brew, as our legion of fans will attest, is Baltimore’s one-of-a-kind source for the kind of independent and fierce watchdog reporting our city needs now more than ever.
