As the keen weather observer has noticed, summer has given way to fall, and as always Uncle Barry’s menu reflects the inevitability of seasonal change.
A new fall cocktail, the AppleJack Torrance, features its namesake AppleJack brandy along with honey, Averna amaro and orange bitters.
New beer options include a couple of pumpkin beers from Dogfish Head and Weyerbacher, 16-oz tallboy cans of Bell’s Two-Hearted IPA and German brewery Hacker-Pschorr’s excellent Oktoberfest Märzen.
On the lower end of the beer spectrum we’ll be offering up cans of Maryland’s own National Bohemian (‘Natty Boh’ affectionately) for $4 during all Orioles playoff games. The O’s playoff games only happen a couple of times a generation, may as well live it up. In addition to the O’s, we’ll be showing all MLB playoff and World Series games throughout the postseason.
Congratulations to all 22 finishers of Uncle Barry’s 2nd annual 31 Beers of August challenge. You shall live on eternally on the hallowed walls of our drinking establishment:
In addition to enshrinement, the winners each received a trophy and an Uncle Barry’s tee-shirt, as well as the satisfaction that accompanies drinking a lot of beer.
Just a reminder that, as always, Uncle Barry’s will have the Direct TV NFL package delivering every game all season long, beginning with Thursday night’s Packers-Seahawks tilt. Packers and Redskins games will take priority on the big screen but feel free to request any other games you want to see on either of our two TV’s.
We’ll also be opening at noon on Saturdays and Sundays for the duration of the college and NFL seasons, so feel free to come by early and drink more beer while you wait for the early games to start.
We had so much fun drinking a lot of beer last August that we decided to do it again.
Uncle Barry’s is proud to present the second installment of the 31 Beers of August. Same deal as last year — drink 31 different beers (bottle or draft) between August 1 and August 31 and win an Uncle Barry’s tee-shirt, a trophy and best of all, your photograph on the wall at the bar so that future patrons can admire what an excellent quantity and variety of beer you drank in August of 2014.
During the unseemly Prohibition Era of United States history in which radical special interests exerted their will over the rest of the country and alcohol became contraband, Pennsylvania’s famed Yuengling Brewery kept the money flowing by making ice cream. After prohibition ended in 1933, Yuengling Dairy became an institution in its own right, making and distributing ice cream for decades before closing up shop in 1985.
Now, with radicals once again running amok in national politics and Yuengling Ice Cream back on the shelves, Uncle Barry’s is making beer floats. $8 gets you a scoop of vanilla or espresso-chocolate chip Yuengling ice cream floating in a pint glass of Yuengling or Guinness. We’ll have these bad boys available throughout the summer while supplies last.

Rosee d’ Hibiscus, a spiced ale brewed with hibiscus flower from Canada’s Brasserie Dieu du Ciel, headlines Uncle Barry’s collection of new bottles this spring. Other imported offerings include Hacker-Pschorr’s hefeweizan, an unfiltered lager from fellow German brewery Bayreuther and Timmerman’s Framboise Lambicus, called a ‘true lambic’ by UB’s resident beermeister, Matt Volner. American breweries are represented with Brontide, a black ale from Baltimore’s Stillwater Brewery, and Green Flash’s Belgian Coast IPA. As always, our offerings change with some frequency so keep an eye on our beer page as well as our listing on Beermenus.com to stay on top of the action.
