Baltimore Breweries - BHHS Homesale Realty

Let's be honest Baltimore – you deserve a drink! Thankfully, National Beer Lover's Day is right around the corner. On Monday, September 7th, it's time to raise a class to the one brew that has stood the test of time. Believe it or not, the process of brewing beer may be older than recorded history itself. Today, we're lucky to have so many crisp, cool, and downright crazy varieties of beer to quench our thirst. If you're a beer lover, our real estate agents know you'll enjoy celebrating National Beer Lover's Day at one of these Baltimore beer taps.

  1. Oliver Brewing Company – 4216 Shannon Dr., Baltimore, MD 21213
    While it seems everybody these days is brewing their own beer, Oliver Brewing Company has been doing it for nearly 30 years. As one of the original craft brewers in Baltimore, Oliver Brewing continually pushes the boundaries on beer taste. You could order a standard Mexican style lager like the I Wish I Was In Mexico, but we suggest sampling a unique offering like the Chesapeake Orange Crush Cider or the S'more Or Less stout that will make you wish summer never ended.

Bubble Tea - Baltimore, MD - BHHS Homesale Realty

No, there are no bubbles in bubble tea. In fact, bubble tea — also known as boba tea — sometimes might not even have tea as an ingredient but could be made from coffee, milk, fruit, or chewy "pearls" found at the bottom of the cup. However it's made, bubble tea is suddenly all the rage and can be found nationwide, from mall food courts to high-end restaurants. 

Originating in Taiwan, bubble tea appears to be named for the milk froth formed when the drink is shaken. But when it's referred to as "boba," that's a Taiwanese slang term for the pearls.

So where can someone interested in Baltimore homes for sale go if they'd like a bubble tea?
