Beer is helping the Chesapeake Bay. Seriously. Since 2011, a portion of sales from Flying Dog Brewery's Pearl Necklace Oyster Stout have assisted in planting nearly 3 million oysters in the Bay. Each sold bottle of Pearl Necklace Oyster Stout, which is brewed with oysters from Rappahannock River, allows the Oyster Recovery Partnership ( ORP ) to plant 10 oysters, a ccording to Erin Weston, director of communications for Flying Dog. On March 1, the Frederick company will present its latest donation to the ORP (from 2013 sales)

If you like Baltimore, beer and beer brewed in Baltimore - and why would you be reading this blog if you didn't? - the above trailer for  Nick Kovacic's new documentary, "Brewmore | Baltimore," should be of interest.  The 65-minute film looks at the history of the beer industry, both nationally and locally, through a Baltimore lens. (One of the movie's main sources is Rob Kasper, the former Sun writer.) Judging from the trailer, it also seems up-to-date with interviews with owners of local breweries, including Stillwater Artisanal Ales, Union Craft Brewing, The Brewer's Art and home-brewers.

State lawmakers from Baltimore County hope to increase the availability of growlers, the refillable jugs that have become popular among craft beer enthusiasts. Sales of growlers have expanded elsewhere in Maryland in recent years, and county lawmakers say they want to keep up with the trend. Legislators have proposed a bill that would create growler permits for county businesses so people could take home beer from the tap. The legislation would allow liquor stores, restaurants and bars to apply for the permits.

When a bar closes, we rush to assign a reason why. The easiest, or perhaps laziest, answer is to blame the location. But businesses, good and bad, close for myriad reasons all the time. And in Baltimore's nightlife scene, there is no blueprint to succeed - just owners willing to take a chance on their concepts. Potential proprietors in search of guidance would be wise to study Robbin Haas, the owner of Hampden's Birroteca, who opened the Nickel Taphouse in Mount Washington in November.

Sushi at a beer bar? Sounds strange, but at Smaltimore, it works. So does everything else. Since it opened in July in the Canton space that used to house Lager's Pub, Smaltimore has received a lot of love from the local crowd. It has a gimmick: beer prices that change based on supply and demand (the more people ordering a certain beer, the more expensive it gets and vice versa). That - along with friendly, easygoing service - make Smaltimore a fun bar. As a restaurant, it's also very likable.

The Governor returned to "The Walking Dead" last week, but he didn't really return until this Sunday night's episode, "Dead Weight. " What I mean by that is that the Governor we saw last week was a shell of himself, shuffling around with his big hair and unkempt beard, brushing zombies aside instead of dispatching them. The Governor we saw this week was the genuine article: salt and pepper stubble, all dressed in black, identifying threats to the survival of himself and those he chooses to protect and eliminating them with extreme prejudice.

News that one of their members has been accused of sexually abusing at least 10 men over the last decade has members of the Maryland Beer Pong league reacting with shock and anger. "It's a betrayal to the community," said Sean Foster, 33, the reigning state champion and a member of the league since its formation in 2005. Joey Poindexter, of Gaithersburg, was arrested Saturday, after a man accused him of sexual assault after a beer-pong tournament at Looney's bar in College Park on Oct. 3. Attempts to reach Poindexter were unsuccessful.

Montgomery County police have arrested a Gaithersburg man who they say has sexually assaulted at least 10 college-age men in the last decade. Joey Poindexter, 38, of Plum Creek Drive, was arrested Saturday, after a man came forward with an accusation of assault earlier this month. The man said he met Poindexter during a night of drinking at a beer pong tournament at Looney's bar in College Park on Oct. 3 and later accompanied him back to Poindexter's home, where he was sexually assaulted.

Cousins Dan Baumiller and Nick Fertig launched Full Tilt Brewing in December, brewing beers in the basement of Baumiller's Sykesville home. Now, less than a year later, Full Tilt beers are on tap at more than 180 bars and restaurants and sold at more than 500 stores across the state. "We're just two home brewers who are trying to go into business," Baumiller said. "There's so much interest in local beers right now. We hope to open our own brewery in a couple years. " It's heady time for Maryland brewers like Baumiller and Fertig.

A couple of Friday nights ago, it was hard to find a place to comfortably stand in World of Beer, McHenry Row's newest bar. The beer emporium was celebrating its opening weekend, and the scene was what new owners dream of: wall-to-wall customers packed inside as an outdoor patio filled up simultaneously. A band played instantly recognizable songs on stage. There were at least 200 people on the premises. It was obvious that World of Beer, a national chain founded in 2007, appeared to be off to a great start at its first Baltimore location.
