Pitchers and catchers reported to Sarasota this week, meaning it’s time to start gearing up for baseball season. In Baltimore, the Orioles thoughts that involved Natty Bohs were quickly clouded.
Beer in Baltimore set off social media on Friday with a report that Natty Boh would no longer be sold in Camden Yards. Given the beer’s connection to the city and our love for Mr. Boh, this was cause for concern.
But the true availability of Boh come Opening Day remains unclear. Beer in Baltimore edited its post to say that only a single draft will be available, instead of no Boh. A Baltimore Sun report quoting Orioles officials said it would be available in “designated areas.”
But there is some hope. Baltimore Magazine talked to a rep from the stadium’s concession company that said no contracts have been finalized yet for the 2016 season, indicating this could be part of an ongoing contract negotiation.
As the story went national, CBS Sports’ Jason LaConfora relayed via Twitter that there is a “standoff” between the distributors and Camden Yards, with big beer companies thirsty for a bigger piece of the hot-selling orange tall boys. La Confora said he is choosing to “remain optimistic.”
So for those still asking -as of right now maybe a tap line or 2 of Boh for the entire stadium. No cans. Can beer and baseball gods resolve?
