    Mr. Stinson

    I would like to speak to you about the Van Der Horst family. i work for a family owned restaurant in Fells Point. The family asked me to research some of the history of the building. My research has lead me to J. H. Van Der Horst owning this building during the Civil War. I would love to talk to you about the subject and get with the gents from Peabody Brewing and possibly set up an event for baseball lovers at the old JH Van Der Horst Tavern.

    Thanks to you David, I finally got to see the brewery on December 12, 2015 prior to attending the Orioles Fan Fest downtown.

    The owner gave me a tour both inside and outside the building, showed me how they brew their different brands of beer, and showed me some of the baseball history at Old Orioles Park #5.

    Even bought two 6 packs of Bohemian to take back to NC with me. I drank the last bottle the other night.

    It was a fun couple of hours there.
