Best Local Beer


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

Posted 9/21/2005

We admit it—the folks at the Brewer’s Art have us wrapped right around their growler, no lie. We’ve steadily been giving their restaurant and beers awards since they opened in 1996, and while the honeymoon may be over, the hangover from the reception is still far off on the horizon, so this year we say hooray beer, hooray the dubble-icious Belgian-style bastard of a Resurrection in all its smooth, rich, high-octane (7% abv) glory, and again hooray, because we can now find it on tap in more corners of the City That Belches than we’ve ever been able to before, drunk or sober. Last year we quaffed it copiously at the HampdenFest for chrissakes, and although it almost rendered us too Resurrected to walk, we did not drive home. So keep your eyes open if you’re in a new joint, or the next time you’re in a bar you haven’t haunted in a while, take a look at those tap pulls and see if It Is Risen.
