A Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott will open in a former brewery in Jonestown near Little Italy, one of a raft of new hotels either under way or planned for downtown Baltimore. The developers expect to start demolition next month to clear the way for the 154-room hotel, which will front on President Street. It is the former site of Baltimore Brewing Co., which brewed DeGroen's German-style beer in its restaurant there for 15 years before closing in 2005. The hotel will be developed and owned by Raleigh, N.C.-based Summit Associates LLC, a hotel developer; Baltimore-based A&R Development, which will oversee construction; and Bethesda-based Hospitality Partners Hotel Management, which will operate the hotel.

DuClaw Brewing Company is still negotiating to purchase a 167,000-square-foot warehouse in Harford County for a future brewery, the company's president and the site's broker said Tuesday, a project that could make the brewer a major player in the regional craft beer market. Though an original deal fell through, Dave Benfield, the craft brewer's president, is bullish on the project, contrary to an early published report in a local trade. "I'm extremely confident we'll be producing beer starting in 2013 out of the new facility," he said.

"It was a poor community," said Sam, an attorney who went on to serve in World War II and run for mayor as a Republican.

ST. LOUIS -- There's no charge to get in, and they give you free beer and pretzels before you leave.Does this sound like a great tour or what? That the visit to the Anheuser-Busch brewery is actually interesting makes it even better.Anheuser-Busch's imposing brick complex is about two miles south of downtown St. Louis and dominates its neighborhood. A guided tour takes about an hour.Although it includes looks at the famed Clydesdale horses and the bottling operation, it does not actually show any beer being made.

A meeting has been scheduled for 6:30 p.m. tomorrow at the St. Paul Community Baptist Church, 1901 E. Federal St., to give city officials community input before they issue a request for proposals for possible redevelopment of the long-vacant American Brewery. Housing officials said they decided to issue an RFP after a developer expressed interest in the nearly 2-acre site in the 1700 block of Gay St. near North Avenue, which the city has owned since the late 1970s and which consists of an 1887 brewhouse and a separate bottling plant.

CESKE BUDEJOVICE, Czechoslovakia -- The brew master surveys his domain with a critical eye and a twitching nose. He's looking at and smelling Budweiser Budvar beer fermenting in a dozen huge tile tubs.The young beer is covered with creamy sand-colored foam like toasted meringue on a vast juicy pie. The low-ceilinged, cave-like cellar is heady with a smell of hops and malt as aromatic as a newly mowed field."As soon as I smell this, I would like a glass of beer," says Milos Heide, the brewmaster emeritus here, a big, solid-looking man built along the lines of a tall beer keg.So would his latest visitor.

Teamsters union workers at the G. Heileman Brewing Co. plant in Halethorpe yesterday crossed picket lines set up by Machinists union strikers at the brewery after the company threatened to fire absentees or cancel their health insurance.The rare split in union solidarity occurred when the international Teamsters union decided not to honor the strike because it said the Machinists were asking for higher wage increases than some 300 Teamsters members got in July after a monthlong strike."We feel damn terrible about it, because the unions are supposed to be in solidarity," said John D. Jefferies, chief negotiator for the striking Machinists.

The buckwheat season arrived when the kitchen began smelling like a brewery.It was well into the fall when my grandmother, Lily Rose, started her weekly buckwheat cake production. "Flannel cakes," her name for what everybody else called pancakes, could be made early Sunday morning. The same was true for her light and fluffy waffles.The buckwheat batter was special. It needed a whole night to ferment and gurgle. The dish took guts to eat. There is no middle ground about this Baltimore breakfast.

Andrew S. Calder, a retired machinist who worked for several area breweries, died of pneumonia Monday at St. Elizabeth Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in Southwest Baltimore. The former Catonsville resident was 98. Mr. Calder was born and raised in Latrobe, Pa., where he attended public schools. "His original name was Caladaro, but the family changed it in 1940 to Calder because it sounded more American," said Cathy Moylan, a granddaughter. In 1927, Mr. Calder married Ann McCarthy, and the couple moved to Baltimore.

AT THE TABLES in DeGroen's Grill on Albemarle Street, the place where the Baltimore Brewing Co. dwells, the members of the Mug Club sit at the dear old copper bar they know so well and raise their glasses high, draining the brewery's last kegs. After 15 years of brewing German-style beers that made men weep for joy, that helped transform scholarly librarians into high-fiving football fans, that encouraged city building inspectors to rub shoulders with professors, doctors and museum docents, the Baltimore Brewing Co. is brewing no more.
