At last, beer - at least here in Howard County - has attained the level of sophistication that wine achieved decades ago. That is due in part to the monthly beer-tasting dinners hosted by Victoria Gastro Pub in Columbia. Usually held on Tuesday or Wednesday nights, participants - 40 or so - are treated to a variety of styles from one particular boutique brewery Such beers are a cut above the plebian beverages to which manh people become accustomed at sports bars, ball games and crab feasts.

Ozzy Osbourne has endorsed soda, a cellphone and even imitation butter spread. But one product the Prince of Darkness apparently does not approve of is Ozzy, the Belgian-style strong pale ale made by the Baltimore-based company The Brewer's Art. The local brewery received a cease-and-desist letter from representatives of Osbourne, the hard-rock-forefather-turned-reality-TV-star, Brewer's Art co-owner Tom Creegan confirmed. The canned version of the beer has a logo depicting a clenched fist with the letters O-Z-Z-Y spelled on the fingers, similar to the Black Sabbath singer's own left hand.

The new brewery rapidly gained local popularity, and you can now find their beers in more than 32 bars, including an ever-expanding list in Ocean City. The care with which they make their beers is what has made it a real local favorite. "I think people want a product they connect with more than just your average, mass produced beer," said head brewer Sean Sasscer. "All our beer is made with a lot of love and a lot of local ingredients.

Alonso's in Roland Park is an unpretentious restaurant in a pretentious part of the city. Since 1931, it's been serving modest food and good beer to much acclaim and many satisfied customers. It hasn't changed one bit over the years. Well over three-quarters full and bustling is how we found Alonso's on a Wednesday night. A relaxed crowd of older patrons, families and couples filled the seats and booths. The missing tiles in the ceiling suggested that Alonso's is renovating (it's not)

There's only one way to find out whether a brew tastes good: Drink it.And there's only one way to determine if non-alcoholic beers can hold their frothy heads high among those who know what beer should taste like: Have a bunch of Serious Beer Drinkers conduct a taste test.So, after a little grumbling, some Serious Beer Drinkers agreed to sample some non-alcoholic beers. They were asked to judge these faux brews for what they are -- a drink that's brewed to have all the qualities of beer but none of the alcohol.

WITH THE surprisingly abrupt withdrawal of H. Ross Perot from the presidential campaign, President Bush and his advisers will surely attempt a new, 1992-style Southern Strategy to try to put an electoral hurting on Bill Clinton and Al Gore in their own Dixie backyards.Mr. Perot might have gummed up the works in several states of the Old Confederacy -- particularly in the Bush and Perot home state of Texas -- but now all territory below the Mason-Dixon line is up for grabs again.Nonpartisan political junkies like myself, of course, are hoping for some old-fashioned hardball.

Lisa Lemanski from Easthampton, Mass., was looking for a recipe for chicken cooked with beer. Patricia Butrow from Baltimore sent in her recipe. It calls for a whole chicken cut up, but it could be made using any parts of the chicken you prefer. I made mine using breast pieces only. Start to finish, the recipe took about an hour to prepare, and the result was tasty and succulent. Butrow says she likes to pair the chicken with rice, steamed string beans, apple cider and toasted rye bread.
