Starting this afternoon, the much-loved Ozzy Ale from The Brewer’s Art will be available for purchase in cans, giving Baltimore beer lovers a reason to cheer.
To celebrate, the Mount Vernon bar is hosting a ceremonial tapping of the can at 4 p.m. today. A second sampling will be held at The Wine Source in Hampden from 5 to 7 p.m.
“The response was a universal thumbs up,” said Volker Stewart, co-owner of The Brewer’s Art.
The beer comes packaged in a can designed by Mission Media and has unique graphics that Stewart said were inspired by singer Ozzy Osbourne’s knuckle tattoos.
Stewart said that the ale, which he describes as mostly dry Belgian golden ale, will be sold in singles and six-packs ($10) in most liquor stores throughout Maryland.
“It’s a great food-pairing ale,” he said.
The Brewer’s Art is known for its house brews. Its flagship beer, Resurrection Ale, was first sold in cans in 2010.
“I’m just excited about kicking off a new brand,” Stewart said.
