The Brewer's Art Pale Ale

Brewer's Art, 1106 N. Charles St., (410) 547-6925,

Posted 9/19/2007

Ever wake up the next morning (or afternoon) and wonder if you tipped the fine folks at Brewer's Art, only to discover that you did to the tune of 37 percent? Not that they don't deserve it for putting up with your drunk ass, but we blame the Ozzy (7.5 percent alcohol) and the Resurrection (coming in close to oblivion at 7 percent). You know that shit fucks up your mojo. Brewer's pale ale, or Beacon Ale as it's properly called, is just as much a lovely libation at 4.8 percent alcohol. It has all the hoppy deliciousness that you expect from a Brewer's beer without the "what the hell was I talking about?" factor that the stronger brews guarantee. And you can get the pale ale (sometimes called Birdhouse) at other bars in town, too, so you don't have to make a trip to Mount Vernon just to get your fix.
