How about a Baltimore-brewed Natty Boh?

There has been a lot of talk about beer in The Sun recently — news of bar openings, microbreweries setting up shop, even an article about how the owner of National Bohemian helped bring the Orioles to town ("Beer, baseball and Baltimore," May 16). But what about National Bohemian, that iconic hometown beer whose mascot dots our city's skyline and which sells for less than $3 a bottle, or on draft now, throughout this city?

This locally-loved beer hasn't been brewed locally in years, and yet we continue to celebrate it as if it were still produced on Brewers Hill. I think it is time Baltimoreans demand their favorite hometown beer be brewed once again at home, in Baltimore. I recently saw a post of just that nature directing people to a new Facebook group demanding just that. Maybe with enough public awareness and pressure, G. Heileman Brewing Co. of Milwaukee could bring some jobs to the city that is providing it with so much money.

    The dirt bikers aren't Baltimore's only problem ("A '12 O'Clock Boys' theme park for Baltimore," Aug. 27). There are dangers from some other motorcyclists who display their "skills" on the Jones Falls Expressway, generally late at night or at 2 in the morning. Some of these cyclists must picture...

    Field hockey's history in Arundel goes back even farther

    While I have the greatest respect and admiration for Lil Shelton and her accomplishments at Severna Park High School ("Girls' sports power reflects long-term national trend," Aug. 25), I feel the need to set the record straight.

    Think the Red Line is expensive? What about all those cars?

    Ben Groff very articulately expressed many of the same sentiments I have about the Red Line and transit in general ("Why killing the Red Line was a mistake," Aug. 25). His emphasis on the negative aspects on car-based transportation is especially significant. I would add that the apparent convenience...

    Shouldn't we read the Iran deal before supporting it?

    I find it un-American that your paper and many in Congress can apparently make a decision to agree with the proposed Iran nuclear deal without reading it or knowing what the side agreements the UN made contain. You are all taking the word of people that have a record of distorting the facts or...

    I just signed a petition against Baltimore County Council Bill 53-15, which changes zoning law to benefit the proposed White Marsh outlet mall. This project really isn't close to me and will not have any significant impact on me that I can foresee. So why bother? A couple of things jump out at...
