Brewers Hill Mr. Boh

Perched atop the National Brewing Company, the one-eyed Mr. Boh keeps his watchful eye over Brewers Hill and is clearly visible from I-95 just north of the Fort McHenry Tunnel. Mr. Boh has been a highly recognizable icon since the 1950s. In an era when National Boh’s main competition was Gunther Beer, whose slogan was “Gunther’s got it,” schoolchildren would ask: “What happened to Mr. Boh’s other eye?”…

… Answer: “Gunther’s got it.” Built in 1872, the National Brewing Company was then known exclusively for its National Premium beer. In 1885, National Brewery Company began brewing their flagship National Bohemian beer by the barrel. Today, the former brewery has been converted to business and office spaces.
