Fun Fact: Did You Know that Baltimore is Birthplace to the Six-Pack?

Question: Did You Know that Baltimore is Birthplace to the Six-Pack?

natty-bohIt’s true! In the 1940s, groundbreaking Baltimore brewing company National Bohemian issued the first six-pack of beer under the very sensible idea that four beers would be too few and eight would be too many. National Bohemian, or “Natty Boh’” as Marylanders call it, has quite a rich history in the Baltimore area before it was acquired by the Pabst Brewing Company through a series of buyouts and mergers. Despite being jostled around the corporate world, Natty Boh remained a Baltimore icon and 90 percent of the sales are still made in its home town.
