Like a proud dad beaming at a newborn, I find myself staring at the cover of “Baltimore Beer.” A nighttime shot of the Inner Harbor, a signature Baltimore scene, captures the soft glow of lights from nearby buildings. In the foreground is a tall, rich, tempting pint. Baltimore and beer look mighty inviting.
I had little to do with this creation. It was the work of photographer Jim Burger, a man with a keen eye for this town and a sharp appreciation of its suds.
Going back to the fatherhood comparison, while this cover may not technically be mine, I’ll happily claim it.
