Best Baltimore-Related Web Site
Published: September 22, 2010
Though many of its contributors are veteran Sun reporters, Baltimore Brew doesn’t pretend to play the role of a newspaper. It’s far from comprehensive, and not always objective. But by being selective—reporting, for instance, on the steel shenanigans at Sparrows Point or the contentious Walmart debate in Remington—the Brew is often able to provide deeper coverage than its understaffed competitors. And the newly revamped home page is just as likely to feature former city transportation planner Gerald Neily’s critiques of the Red Line or urban forager Marta Hanson’s instructions for roasting chicory as a news story. This unusual mix—along with a wry editorial tone—makes for a refreshing concoction indeed.
