Baltimore Celebrates The Return Of Natty Boh

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — It’s a beer with a rich Baltimore history. If you love a cold Natty Boh, you should be celebrating.

Ron Matz has more on the return of Mr. Boh in all his glory.

It’s the beer that defines Baltimore.

“Natty Boh is so iconic. It’s like your grandfather’s basement, the stoops in Highlandtown. It means so much to the city,” said Patrick “Scunny” McCusker, owner of Nacho Mama’s. “It was the Colts, Orioles and Natty Boh back in the day.”

Natty Boh is back on tap for the first time in 15 years. Boh drinkers will be celebrating in Canton with McCusker’s Mr. Boh car right out in front.

“Tonight after 15 years, Natty Boh is back on tap. The new owners looked at their portfolio and they couldn’t understand why this one little beer was doing so well in this area. They visited Baltimore and decided they wanted to promote it more and put it back on tap. We’ll tap the first keg here at Nacho Mama’s,” said McCusker.

Mr. Boh can be seen everywhere in Baltimore, to remind people of the big return.

Mr. Boh looks down from Brewers Hill. Nacho Mama’s is a Natty Boh shrine.

“When you’re feeling bad, Natty Boh makes me feel good. I don’t mean drinking it. When you’re driving home from a long trip and you see Mr. Boh on Brewers Hill, it makes you feel good,” said McCusker.

Guests at Nacho Mama’s include the family of the late Jerry Hoffberger. Hoffberger owned the national brewery and he once owned the Baltimore Orioles.

“I got a call from Lisa Hoffberger and we have a table reserved for that family who was so influential in Baltimore and in keeping the beer alive. We’re looking forward to seeing them here tonight,” said McCusker.
