Liam Flynn's Ale House has all the ingredients to be a great Irish-American bar and restaurant. Its welcoming space, friendly crowd and commitment to local products - both at the tap and in the kitchen - are points in its favor. As a bar, Liam Flynn's is a success. As a restaurant, it's getting there. Scene & Decor Liam Flynn's sits on a rapidly developing stretch of North Avenue in Station North. Even from the outside, there's no questioning the type of establishment it is. From the name to the green and gold signage, the look is pure Irish pub. The visuals carry over inside, where dark wood reigns, flags line the walls and the bar is front and center.

Heavy Seas will have its name in lights at Horseshoe Casino Baltimore, the casino under construction on Russell Street. On Friday, Horseshoe announced that a Heavy Seas tavern will be among five Maryland-based vendors in its first-floor casual-dining area, which it's calling the Baltimore Marketplace. The casino said the other Baltimore Marketplace vendors would include Lenny's Deli, which has locations in Harborplace, on Lombard Street and in Owings Mills; the Greenspring Station restaurant Tark's Grill , which will be represented at the casino by a casual bistro named Tark's at the 'Shoe; the Towson-based pizza-by-the-slice chain Mamma Ilardo's , which will introduce a new personal-size pizza concept named Pie-Zetta; and the Mallow Bar , a "crispy treat dessert cafe" specializing in homemade marshmallow treats.

Just because you're on vacation at the shore doesn't mean every drink has to come with a tiny beach umbrella. Pitch the slushy or cosmopolitan, and think more along the lines of craft. Craft beer, that is. For a long time, beer drinkers lacked choices beyond "light or dark?" But the increasingly popular craft beer movement has expanded in imbibers' minds the possibilities for beer. Independent microbreweries have existed for years, but America's growing appreciation of small-batch, handcrafted products - and their never-quenched love of beer - seem to signal that this trend is not going away.

Opening a new hotel bar in Harbor East poses a challenge. Aesthetically, the neighborhood requires chicness, but there is also a desire to appeal to all comers, especially given the proximity to downtown. Straddling the line between comfort and sophistication demands a delicate touch. It all leads to the question: How does a hotel bar attract a local crowd? Apropoe's, the ambitious bar and restaurant inside the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel, has attempted to find an answer.

This time, The Brewer's Art went with a local celebrity of sorts. After receiving a cease-and-desist letter on behalf of musician Ozzy Osbourne, the Baltimore brewery has renamed its Ozzy beer Beazly, said co-owner Tom Creegan on Tuesday afternoon. It is named after Mark Barcus, a bartender of the Mount Vernon bar for nearly 17 years. His nickname around the bar is Beazly, Creegan said. "The running joke joke was if you worked here long enough, you don't get a gold watch - you get a gold ale," Creegan said.  The company submitted the proposed name change to Osbourne's representatives, Creegan said, and they approved it. Earlier this month, The Brewer's Art asked customers to submit potential new names for the beer (which will keep the same recipe)

In early December, a Facebook post announced a change had come to a Riverside haunt: “Hey guys. It's no longer Paul's bar ... we are under new ownership but not much else is going to change.” Shotti's Point had arrived, but it was the second part of the message that mattered most. From 2000 to 2013, Paul Zang turned the Fort Avenue corner bar into a no-nonsense hangout for neighborhood patrons of all ages. I unknowingly stumbled upon Paul's one summer night in 2012, and happily played pool as the gregarious Zang chatted with regulars and Led Zeppelin played over the speakers.

Visitors to farmers' markets would be able to sample and purchase beer made by small Maryland brew pubs under a bill that received final General Assembly approval Thursday. The House unanimously passed the measure, sending it to the governor. It is a stripped-down version of a bill introduced by Sen. Paul Pinsky, a Prince George's County Democrat. Where the original bill would have allowed any Maryland brewery to set up booths at farmers' markets, the amended legislation limits such licenses to far breweries or brew pubs that make fewer than 3,000 barrels a year.
