2/21 Update: Former Caps beat writer Jason LaCanfora is reporting that there will only be one tap of Natty Boh available at OPACY. “From what I gather, the big beer companies want a bigger stake in stadium sales,” LaCanfora writes. “Boh was by far biggest selling can at Camden Yards. As of now, no Boh cans – not even the sweet 16oz orange ones – will be available, the previous big seller. Hopefully that changes by April.”
2/19 Update: According to the Baltimore Sun, the Orioles will still be selling Boh, but only at one location. Per an Orioles club official, the Natty Boh bar will also now have new branding in 2016 and serve a variety of beers.
Original story: Maryland’s signature beer, National Bohemian, aka “Natty Boh,” aka “Bohs for Os, hon, le’s’go, Cal, git ‘er dun for Dundalk,” is a staple of any visit to Camden Yards, home of the Baltimore Orioles and best baseball stadium on the planet. Except change that “is” to a “was” because rumor has it that OPACY won’t be selling Natty Boh this season.
Maryland Craft beer enthusiasts Beer in Baltimore shared the rumor on Thursday night, sending shockwaves from Ridgely’s Delight to Arbutus and all the way to Fredneck.
Saturday at Harry Grove Stadium was Hockey Day. The Frederick Keys staff wore hockey gear (I’m wagging my finger at you, girl in Malkin shirsey), and two former Washington Capitals, Craig Laughlin and Alan May, threw out the ceremonial first pitches and signed autographs for fans on the concourse.
Before the first pitches were thrown, however, there was some intrigue.
The night before, during the Caps telecast, Laughlin promised to CSN Washington’s Joe Beninati that he would zing the ball into home plate going “105.”
Let’s goooooo to the videotape.
