It’s no secret that Baltimore takes its beer seriously. One of the city’s first manufacturing industries was the brewing of National Bohemian beer, lovingly called "Natty Boh" by the locals. The iconic one-eyed mascot with a handlebar mustache can be spotted easily on clothing and merchandise, and atop the historic “Natty Boh Tower” in Baltimore’s Brewers Hill neighborhood. Even though National Bohemian is no longer brewed in Baltimore, the beer scene is alive and well with dozens of local breweries and brewpubs. Don’t miss Baltimore’s annual Beer Week in October that celebrates the best of Baltimore’s craft beer culture.
