Lately I've been reading a book about Baltimore, MD's brewing history. I had no idea how important it was. Just a few cool facts: 1. The flag that flew over Ft McHenry and inspired the national anthem was sewn on a local brewery floor because the seamstress's house was too small to spread it out. Literally fermenting rebellion 2. A Baltimorean first patented the crown caps that we all use today, as well as the opener for those caps. Gillete would later use the disposable cap as inspiration for the first disposable razors. 2a. During World War II rationing, breweries would hand out sacks for customers to fill with caps and turn in for prizes, usually (oddly enough) women's stockings. 3. National Brewing Company (original brewers of Natty Boh) were the first to sell canned six packs. Anyone else have some awesome stories about their local brewing history?
