Made from herbs, the liqueur is said to be as close as you can legally come in the United States to absinthe. Idle Hour is the No. 1 seller of the drink in the mid-Atlantic, Finnerty said.

Baltimore beer company The Brewer's Art received a cease and desist letter from representatives of Ozzy Osbourne over the brewery's popular pale ale named "Ozzy," (pictured above, on the left side), Brewer's Art co-owner Tom Creegan said this afternoon. The canned version of the beer features a logo depicting a clenched fist with the letters O-Z-Z-Y spelled on the fingers, similar to the hard-rock singer's own left hand. Bat imagery also appears, which is likely a reference to one of Osbourne's most infamous on-stage stunts .  Creegan declined to comment further on the news, first reported today by City Paper.

Graphic designer Jon Zerivitz was tired of being stuck at a computer for up to 12 hours a day as a contractor forT. Rowe Price. "I needed a hobby," Zerivitz said. Indulging a longtime passion for beer, he went to the Maryland Homebrew store in Columbia in 2010 and bought everything he needed to brew beer. "The first batch was really good," he recalled. "The second batch was really bad. I kept at it. " Two years later, Zerivitz, 32, was brewing beer again Aug. 3, but on a larger scale, as co-owner of the new Union Craft Brewing Co., on the border of Hampden and Woodberry.

It was a night of smoke and fine suds. Beer and barbecue were served up at Hampton's restaurant in Harbor Court, normally a restaurant devoted to fine wines and delicate sauces.Holly Forbes put the event together both as a way of announcing to area eaters that she had become the executive chef at Harbor Court Hotel, and as a way of using the big, new smoker she and her husband had hauled back to Baltimore after a recent trip to Texas.Each dish of the feast, the chef said, "had been kissed by the smoker."

FREDERICK -- Nestled in an industrial park near Interstate 270, the honey-brown big-box factory is easily overlooked. It's a huge space for an independent microbrewery, but small when compared to an Anheuser-Busch plant. Though the Wild Goose Brewery has tried to market itself with Saturday tours, manager Ryan Fox said, "You'd be shocked how many people have lived in Frederick all their lives and have no idea there's a brewery in town." That may be changing as the former Frederick Brewing Co. plant adds products and beefs up its output.

Once upon a time, beer was a gentle blend of malt and hops. Then the hopheads appeared. Hopheads are beer drinkers who, in the words of Sam Calagione of Delaware's Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, "have an addiction to the citrus bitterness of hops, who want their next beer to be a little hoppier than the last one they tried." Some of their favorite brews are so strong that they threaten to peel the enamel off teeth. This, some hopheads contend, is a pleasing sensation. I am not a hophead, but I have met many.

There's no denying — craft beers are more popular than they've been in decades. To keep up with demand, restaurants and bars have upped their draft selections, hosted beer tastings and started pairing food with beers. In the Baltimore region, few restaurants fill this niche as well as Frisco Taphouse and Brewery . This Columbia restaurant and bar serves a fantastic selection of beers, and backs it up with solid dishes. Crowds have responded — on a recent Wednesday night, Frisco was packed.

I THOUGHT I had missed the last call, but then I got a second chance and tapped into the good stuff. It happened last Wednesday night at the fifth annual Maryland Craft Beer Dinner at Sisson's in South Baltimore. In December, I missed a chance to taste a limited supply of Fuel, a small-batch winter beer made at Capital City Brewing in Harborplace. Then, last week, I got another opportunity to taste it. This time I cashed in. What a beer! Fuel is the espresso of brews, a dark, smooth stout, the sweet malt notes of which perfectly match with the acid flavors of Sumatra coffee.

Michael E. Ashford has this idea about moderation. Whenever possible, he tries to avoid it."I've never been too much for moderation in the fun things," said Ashford, who owns McGarvey's Saloon in Annapolis. "I think if you really want to do something, you do it. If you want to fly, you fly in the Air Force, you fly biplanes. If you want to drink, you buy a saloon."Then maybe you combine the two. You produce a beer that flies under the biplane label. Call it "Aviator's Premium Special Reserve Ale."

It's an ongoing debate among Baltimoreans: Are the best bars in Canton off O'Donnell Square? If you've been to the Irish pubs or sports bars around there even once, you know what you're in for - a night that's not always pretty but comforting in its predictability. There's the familiar aroma of too many people, the flowing Red Bulls and the awkward grinding. Want to have a conversation without straining your voice? Good luck. But hang around Canton long enough and the truth quickly emerges: The corner bars away from the Square lack the crowds but make up for it with personality and character.

I AM ONE OF those grouches who complain that holiday hoopla starts too early in the season. I make an exception, of course, for drinking holiday beers. Once the clocks have been turned back to standard time and the fridge has been cleared of any lingering Oktoberfest brews, I am in a holiday-beer mood. Last week, I sampled, along with six other tasters, 22 of this season's crop of bottled holiday beers. I pause here for a note on nomenclature. There was an era when the strong brews that appeared at this time of year were called "Christmas beers."
