Neighborhood: Brewers Hill Location: Southeast Baltimore Average sales price: $223,000 (January-June) Notable features: Ask people in the region to name a funky Baltimore neighborhood near the water, and they'll probably come up with Canton. Brewers Hill, its small next-door-neighbor to the east, gets a lot less attention. But it has neatly kept rowhouses, cool beer-brewing history and easy access to Canton hot spots without the bustling activity.

An online advertising firm started in Baltimore and owned by AOL plans to remain in the city, having signed a new long-term lease in Brewer's Hill, according to the owner of the building.

AOL confirmed plans to move, but did not provide further information.

A Baltimore police officer slit the throat of a dog officers had under control and now faces felony animal cruelty charges, the department said Wednesday. Police Deputy Commissioner Dean Palmere called the killing "outrageous and unacceptable" and said internal affairs is investigating the incident, which took place Saturday morning in Brewers Hill. Baltimore City Councilman Robert W. Curran, council liaison to the Mayor's Anti-Animal Abuse Advisory Commission, said there was no reason to have killed the dog if it was restrained with a dog-control pole, as police say it was. "It's pretty astounding that our public safety officers would ever have done this," Curran said.

Owner Henry Mitchem says he named his restaurant Winks because it sits in the shadow of the ever-leering giant Natty Boh head that hovers over Brewers Hill. But Winks Hill Top Grill has the unfortunate distinction of being a Brewers Hill establishment that serves no brew. Though Mitchem is working to get a liquor license, he doesn't have one yet. That means this family-owned eatery has to survive on the strengths of its charm and the quality of its food. -- Poor:]

As many as 485 new luxury apartments are being planned for two blocks of Baltimore's Brewers Hill neighborhood, the mixed-use redevelopment of two shuttered breweries. A Houston-based apartment developer has a site south of O'Donnell Street under contract and plans two four-to-five story residential buildings that would include street-level shops and parking. The plan is scaled back from a much larger residential component envisioned when city planners approved development in Brewers Hill about five years ago. The developer, the Hanover Co., also is building Brewers Hill's first new housing component, a 180-unit apartment complex on the west side of South Conkling Street that is scheduled for completion in about a year.

Francis Cain knows the story by heart. In 1993, two Baltimore police officers visited his Southeast Baltimore neighborhood as part of a community relations effort. "They asked, `What do you want to name yourselves?' "We said, `Well, we don't know.' "And they said, `How about Brewers Hill, because of the two breweries?" It made sense. The neighborhood houses the remnants of National Brewing Co. and the Gunther brewery. And so Brewers Hill came to be. A traditional, working-class neighborhood, Brewers Hill was once considered part of Highlandtown, stretching from Fleet Street to Dillon Street and from Conkling to Haven.

Sometimes the big chain restaurants -- the ones with the loud commercials on television and the paste-on-a-smile themes -- remind of a gaudy cubic zirconium ring. They're so bright, with their oversized portions, colorful menus and "Hi, I'm Suzy" service, but they're not the real thing. And then there's Brewers Hill, a small, imperfect diamond among local restaurants. It is a real Baltimore restaurant, not part of a chain, and in its own way it s just right. Given the choice between a giant fake hunk of glitter and a small diamond, I think most of us would choose the diamond.

I used Russell Street to get to BWI this fall for a vacation. I made a mental note of the progress of the new Horseshoe Casino when I left. About 14 days later, the construction seemed to have doubled. Certainly the construction of this casino ranks as one of the highlights of change in Baltimore this past year. Some well-established neighborhoods saw substantial, but subtle advances in 2013. Not as obvious as the casino, an aged commercial core of Fells Point at Broadway, between Aliceanna and Fleet streets, emerged this year.

All the effort that's gone into the West Side of Baltimore's downtown pales in comparison to the vitality of Inner Harbor East, Fells Point, Canton and Brewers Hill. People live, work and play there. This is the magic of good planning and a little luck. We now have the opportunity, with the prospect of Harbor Point, to continue and expand on this Baltimore success story. To those who say "we can't afford it," I say: "We can't not afford it. " George Thomas

Dinner at DelMarVa's Southern Cafe isn't exactly the same as a meal at a charming, out-of-the-way Eastern Shore diner. But it's close. The eatery, which opened this September in the old broom factory building on the Canton-Brewers Hill border, takes its inspiration from the region's comfort food, with a focus on specialties like fried chicken, Virginia ham and crab cakes. For the most part, the kitchen did these local favorites justice. The restaurant's brick walls, sturdy wooden furniture and friendly vibe lend the place a decidedly down-home-on-the-Shore feel.

There's a transformation taking place this fall that is obvious from the former National Brewery in Brewers Hill. On a terrace just below the iconic Mr. Boh sign, I observed a construction army at work along Conkling and Dean streets. Over the summer, they labored on the creation of more than 600 new apartment rental units in low-rise buildings. Week by week, floors rose. Balconies appeared. Parking decks arrived. And sweeps disappeared down an ancient brick powerhouse chimney. For years, this eastern end of Canton was a hard-toiling industrial neighborhood, served by ships and rail sidings, surrounded by rowhouses and dotted with church steeples.

Some Brewers Hill neighbors gathered recently for their last meeting of the year, chatting enthusiastically about the for-sale signs sprouting weedlike along their streets. The next night, in a well-worn men's club hall, other Brewers Hill residents convened. The crowd of mostly retirees gasped and laughed a little as a representative from Canton Crossing, a development slated to rise on the nearby waterfront, propped up a schematic of the 17-story office tower, the condos that start at a half-million dollars, the shops.

The summer before Megan Walburn's senior year at Washington College she met someone at a cookout who worked at WJZ. Soon there was a writing test. Then a gig freelancing. She has stayed at WJZ (our media partner) for the last five years producing, and now executive produces the network's 11 p.m. news broadcast. "News is ever-changing, which means my job never gets boring," said Walburn, 26, a Brewers Hill resident. "In some jobs, people watch the clock from 9-5. At my job, I find myself wishing for more time in the workday.

Stillwater Artisanal Ales is opening its own bar in Brewer's Hill this year, and it isn't just lending its name to the effort. To be called Of Love & Regret, the bar is a creative and business collaboration between Stillwater founder Brian Strumke and Ted Stelzenmuller, chef and co-owner of restaurant Jack's Bistro in Canton. Its opening underscores the success the Baltimore microbrewer has had in the past two years. Strumke said he expects production of Stillwater beers to double to 5,000 barrels in 2012.
