For The Resurrection Fans

Not sure how many of you out there are fans of "Resurrection" made by Brewer's Art, but I'm absolutely in love with this beer.

Most of us don't live in the city so a trek to Brewer's Art, although desirable, is not a frequent thing. Luckily I've found at least two places in Columbia that regularly feature it: Frisco Grille (which is a GREAT beer place that I'll discuss later on) and the Greene Turtle.

Feel free to argue with me, but I think it's the best regular beer in Maryland (made by Maryland brewers). Its refreshing with some sort of subdued Belgian candy sweetness as well as some tartness/sourness and complexity that makes it incredibly drinkable and enjoyable no matter the weather.

Oh, bytheway, Brewers Art's "Ozzy" is now available in bottles at The Perfect Pour. I doubt they'll stay on the shelves long so be sure to trek over there and grab one or two.

Catching Up

So I've been away for a while, obviously.

Hopefully I'll get around to discussing the California trip and its implications for what I think about Maryland's beer situation. In the meantime I will soon discuss my trips to the Flying Dog (formerly of Colorado) brewery and the Dogfish Head brewery and restaurant in Delaware. Interesting trips, both.

Finally: National Bohemian

The official old school beer of Baltimore, or something like that. I broke down and grabbed a six pack (cans) recently. In the absence of blue crabs, I'm having it tonight with some leftover homemade curried chicken. The flavors complement well, of course.

I can understand the love for this beer, as it tastes like all those cheap beers our fathers drank back in the day, sort of a Old Style if I were to reference a beer. Its crisp and refreshing if loaded with that awkward old school beer aftertaste. If nothing else I'd take this over a Heineken, believe it or not.

Gotta love that "From the Land of Pleasant Living" tag on the can.
