Developers overseeing the renovation of the American Brewery site in East Baltimore received approval for a $700,000 grant from the city's housing department yesterday. Two companies, Gotham Development and Struever Bros. Eccles & Rouse, are investing more than $35 million to convert the five-story former brewery into office space for Humanim Inc., a nonprofit social services agency in Columbia. The city's Board of Estimates unanimously approved a forgivable, no-interest loan for the project, which officials said they hope will spark revitalization in blighted blocks nearby.

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.

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.

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.

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.
