Bawlmer Beers brewery owner John O'Melia confirmed that the first shipments of his initial batches of beer have rolled out to a few local outlets: "Off the top of my head: Grand Cru, Mount Washington Tavern, Pickles Pub, North Charles Wine Shop, Mays Chapel Wine & Spirits, Mt Washington Liquors, and Eddie's of Roland Park." Remember, folks, for the time being it's only showing up in bottles.
I passed samples around a panel of tasters the other day; it's likely to be a polarizing beer at first, because some folks seem to love it while others turned up their noses at it. The Formstone Ale and Amber's Ale, Hon definitely do not fit most folks' preconceptions of an American Brown Ale or an amber, respectively, and that will delight those looking for something new or different, and turn off those who expect predictability based on style names.
