G. Heileman Brewing in 2015

G. Heileman ceased to exist in 1995. Pabst perpetuates a fiction in 2015.

 

And the beer itself? Smells like cooked chicken, canned corn, mulch and grass. Not in a good way. See it poured in a glass: here.

National Bohemian (Natty Boh) is no longer, in any real way, a Baltimore, Maryland-area beer, and hasn't been since 1995.

 

It is now brewed in Eden, North Carolina, by MillerCoors, under a contract agreement for the Pabst Brewing Company, which itself owns no actual brewing facilities. MillerCoors is set to close the plant in 2016, and who know what will happen after the pending sale of SABMiller to Anheuser-Busch InBev.

 

As Fritz Hahn of the Washington Post said of the beer:

 

"These days, there’s little that’s authentically Maryland about Natty Boh, a beer brewed in North Carolina under contract to a multinational corporation based in Los Angeles with a Texas post office box as its address."
