UPDATE: The great folks at Pabst Brewing saw our post and sent an email with more information on the commemorative cans. Here’s their official statement:
“On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of Camden Yards, Pabst Brewing Company is releasing commemorative National Bohemian on-can packaging to celebrate these two great Baltimore traditions. Conceived last October and designed in-house, this special can features the iconic Mr. Boh swinging a baseball bat in Camden Yards with the Baltimore skyline in the background. The commemorative 16 ounce cans are available now at retail and in bars, everywhere National Bohemian is sold, and will be sold at Camden Yards at the start of the season. We’re grateful for the resurgence the brand has enjoyed in recent years, which exploded once we reintroduced draft in the Baltimore market in January of 2011, and we hope fans of Natty Boh will appreciate this fun tribute.”
–Daren Metropoulos and Evan Metropoulos, co-owners of Pabst Brewing Company”
11:40 AM: Last season, National Bohemian made it’s triumphant return to Orioles baseball, being served on draft at Oriole Park At Camden Yards.
There’s nothing like a cold Natty Boh and the O’s.
As the Baltimore honors the 20th anniversary of Oriole Park, National Bohemian has created a special commemorative can to honor the best ball park in U.S. of A.
The picture to the right was tweeted by Christopher Soper (some guy I don’t know) and was retweeted by @NattyBohs. The 16 ounce can features Boh in an orange jersey swinging a bat with Baltimore’s cityscape in the background.
I’m not sure if these cans are available in liquor stores or if they are exclusive to OPACY. Either way, I can’t wait to enjoy a cold one this summer. As the temperature continues to climb, so to does my desire to taste this cheap, delicious beer.
