Further on last month's post on a planned Leininkugel's Beer Garden at the Power Plant Live, company owner Jacob Leininkugel came to Baltimore to host a beer dinner at Luckie's Liquors in the Power Plant Live a little over a week ago.
Before a dinner of salad, soft-pretzel-log with Gruyere cheese dip, rolled flank steak with caramelized onion and asparagus and baked potato, and cheesecake, Leininkugel waxed on the history and revival of his family's brewery. Afterwards, he detailed plans for the place: the flagship six Leininkugel brands (Classic Amber, Honey Weiss, Fireside Nut Brown, Berry Weiss, Sunset Wheat, and Red Lager) would share the drafts along with thirty-two guest beers. Opening of the new outdoor, glass-roofed beer garden (in front of the Port Discovery Museum and the former Babalu's) is anticipated for mid-to-late July. Joe Squared's new outlet will set up in the now-empty former Two Boots location on the west side of the Power Plant Live complex to the south of The Ram's Head Live.
