BALTIMORE (WJZ) — It was just a few months ago that Orioles officials denied rumors that Natty Boh would not be sold at Camden Yards this year.
A source within the Orioles organization confirmed to WJZ at that time that Natty Boh would still be available, but that a variety of beers would be served going forward at the first base bar, formerly known as the Natty Boh Bar.
But after today’s Baltimore Sun report claiming that Natty Boh was nowhere to be found in the park Wednesday night breathed new life into the issue, the same source will not confirm or deny that Natty Boh won’t be served this year.
Instead, the source emphasized that the park is working with its concessions provider, Delaware North, to ensure that a wide range of options are available, including local beers like Flying Dog, Heavy Seas and Dogfish Head.
While Mr. Boh is an unofficial symbol of the city of Baltimore, the beer hasn’t been brewed in Maryland since 1996 and National Bohemian is now owned by the international beer conglomerate Pabst Brewing Co.
