Welcome back you handsome devil

So it's not craft beer. Heck, it's not even GOOD beer. But as a proud Murr-lender (that's "Maryland" for those of you that speak standard American English), I got just a tad misty when I learned that National Bohemian would return to taps around the Ball-mer (again, that's "Baltimore") area for the first time since the mid-90s.

Now I've often heard the ridicule about how the Old Line State doesn't have much going for her when it comes to cultural icons. We've got ... uhhh, crabs ... lacrosse ... and Old Bay ... errr, that's about it, for the most part. But let it not be forgotten that Baltimore was once indeed a major player in American brewing. So welcome back you dapper 'ol chap ... may your monocle sparkle bright, and your beer provide moderate amounts of pleasure at an affordable price for the masses once again.
