Local breweries seem to be multiplying, but Baltimore’s expansion isn’t limited to a single neighborhood. Just look at last week’s news out of Pigtown. With the breweries spread out and the fact that drinking is involved, someone was bound to start a tour. Turns out, that business model already exists in other cities, and they’re bringing it here.
A quartet of local craft beer creators are set to debut the second beer to help Ellicott City in as many weeks.
Ahh, December. The time of year when the lights go up, family members come to stay, the kids get a long break from school, and everyone is suddenly in need of a drink. (Not the kids, though, of course.)
After a naming contest following a cease-and-desist from Ozzy Osbourne, The Brewer’s Art’s much loved Ozzy ale has been rechristened “Beazly.” It’s pleasantly reminiscent of the old handle, and this time it’s named after someone much less likely to get litigious. “Beazly” (or the even briefer “Beaz”) is the nickname of stalwart Brewer’s Art bartender Mark Barcus. After 17 years at the microbrewery, Beazly will start pouring Beazlies. (Here’s hoping the honor doesn’t wear off to the point where it gets annoying!)
According to Baltimore Business Journal, the Ozzy name will be in use for a little while longer since the can design will be revamped as well (which featured classic Ozzy imagery like headless bats and a knuckle tattoo). Right now looks like the color scheme — silver, red, black, and blue — will stick around.
