A minor, but welcome update for you Baltimore-area craft beer lovers: The city’s newest brewery up on Falls Road is now selling its rotating brews to-go.

Nepenthe Brewing Co. posted on social media today showing off some vibrant, eye-catching can art designed by Columbus, Ohio-based tattoo artist Mike Moses, adorning the brewery’s new crowlers, which are often-oversized cans that require a special sealing machine to cap.

The recently opened Hampden brewery currently makes and serves its beer in-house but doesn’t distribute to stores or bars. But with this change, early fans can get take their suds home with them.

Two new beers from Union Craft and DuClaw

Another North Baltimore beer maker, Union Craft Brewing, announced this week that it’s rolling out a new addition to its core line of popular beers. It’s named after the beloved John Waters collaborator, the late drag performer, actor and singer Divine, and the brewery describes it as a “perversely hoppy ale.”

The first kegs of Union’s Divine IPA will be tapped early next month, and cans will be available in April.

And out in the county, DuClaw Brewing Company is continuing with its bold brewing and branding approach with the announcement of Unicorn Farts, a sour beer that includes—no lie—real cereal and edible glitter. It’s being brewed in collaboration with Federal Hill’s Diablo Doughnuts, and is also due out in March.

As Baltimore magazine noted earlier this week, they’re progressive brews inspired by the LGBTQ+ community and culture.
