In an article published on Tuesday, BBC Travel writer Kendra Marr expounds on the growth of the beer scene here in Baltimore. Marr starts off describing how the city's beer heyday was diminished by Prohibition and then eventual industry consolidation.

She then proclaims, though, that "beer is flowing back into the city, thanks to a combination of young beer enthusiasts, cheap real estate, and the persistence of local brewers."

The rest of the piece is a basic list of all the go-to beer spots in the city, including Max's Taphouse, Brewer's Art, Pratt Street Alehouse, and Clipper City Brewing Company (with a nod to Heavy Seas Alehouse). Marr also makes mention of Baltimore Beer Week, Stillwater Artisanal Ales, DuClaw Brewing Company, and Baltimore-Washington Beer Works.

This may certainly not be news to local beer nerds, but what great international press to cement that Baltimore is indeed a beer town once again.
