Natty Boh -- never kegged

After reading some of your comments, I called Nacho Mama's, which Bryanintimonium thought was the only place that had it on tap.

Turns out, the brewery (based in North Carolina now?) does not sell kegs of Baltimore's favorite brew. You can only get it in bottles or cans.

Just to be sure, I called Max's Taphouse. They've got something like 70 beers on tap, and if anybody could get a keg of Boh, it would be them. They confirmed it -- no Boh kegs.

I still think every bar in this city should stock Boh. It's not the end of the world if they don't, but Boh belongs in Baltimore bars.

The beer is owned by Pabst. They stopped kegging the beer a year or two ago. It is now actually brewed out of state. The rumors are that brewing either happens in Pennsylvania or at G. Heileman in Milwaukee, WI. Additional rumors are that Clipper City has purchased the original recipe and has long-term plans to brew it again...

natty boh was always a little questionable, but the old national premium actually wasnt too bad!
