Rob Kasper: Baltimore Beer

The Ivy Bookshop

Join us for a BYOBB (Bring Your Own Baltimore Beer) event, featuring Baltimore Sun alumnus Rob Kasper.


By The Author

Since Mary Pickersgill sewed Old Glory on the floor of a local brewery, Baltimore has been a beer-drinking town. In Baltimore Beer, Rob Kasper traces the sudsy story from the days when alehouses lined the Jones Falls to the tales behind the current crop of local brewers who are fermenting a craft brew revival. Kasper uses interviews, stunning vintage images and a few recipes to pop the cap on Charm City's brewing history.
