DuClaw BWI: Flying through BWI? Before you head to your room at the Doubletree Baltimore-BWI Airport or the Doubletree Annapolis, grab a beer or two at the DuClaw Brewing Company restaurant (located outside of security at concourse B). Their 6 year-round offerings are brewed just a few miles from the restaurant, and they’re known for some seriously intense flavors—from Espresso and Peanut Butter Porters to Funky Wheat Ales.
