The roadside root beer stand's orange contours memorialize this venerated shrine to a different era. Its fans make pilgrimages to this Stewart's franchise on Pulaski Highway, a truck-battered stretch of U.S. 40 in eastern Baltimore County, to recall the food experiences of their youth. This is the place where it seemed a little cooler in the days before broiling city neighborhoods such as Highlandtown or Canton had air conditioning. Suburban Rosedale was the summer destination when the sun was bright, the humidity was high and school was a distant notion.

Imagine a bar with all-you-care-to-taste selections of more than 60 beers, 40 bourbons -- all for one flat cover. It would need to be a pretty big bar, say, the size of the expansive Cow Palace at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium? On March 21 and 22, the Beer, Bourbon & BBQ Festival came back to Baltimore, and the formula still works. "I love the variety of the beer, and the people, and just the fun atmosphere," said AJ Ferguson, a 30-year-old auditor, who came from Ocean View, Del., for the event with her fiance, Jared.

At 5: 15 p.m., there was still beer available at April Schaf’s stand in the infield. Last year at this time, she had run out. And though tips were better then, she’s not sure if having beer left at the height of the afternoon is due to better coordination or fewer people. “Last year, I think they were understaffed,” the Pasadena resident said, “so they wanted to compensate.” She said that people seemed happy with the short lines. She had plenty of Bud and Bud Light left over, but had run out Stella Artois.

Selling beer to an underage, undercover police volunteer has proved costly to the owners of two Howard County liquor stores.

McHenry Row is getting its own beer-centric bar, the chain World of Beer, this June or July, according to McHenry Row developer Mark Sapperstein. Baltimore's 3,400-square-foot World of Beer will serve 550-600 different types of beers, including many esoteric brews from around the world, Sapperstein said.

BERLIN - Germans are losing their taste for their national drink. Beer consumption dropped 4.3 percent in the first half of the year to 1.4 billion gallons - 63.4 million gallons less than last year, according to statistics released yesterday by the government. Bad weather was partly to blame, with a belated summer keeping drinkers away from outdoor beer gardens. But also cutting consumption were a more health-conscious public and changing work habits, as fewer people do manual labor where beer drinking is a break-time tradition.

Expectations were predictably high, and how could they not? Opened in late May after months of anticipation, Of Love and Regret could be Brewers Hill's highest-profile collaboration ever.

After two recent visits to the consistently packed establishment, it's safe to say their goal has been accomplished nearly out of the gate.
