National Premium Closer To Relaunch

Maryland’s National Premium – discontinued in 1996, is officially being brewed again.  In Delaware. For now.    Tim Miller, a realtor, bought the rights to the brand in 2010 for less than $100 Grand.  Apparently he tracked down the original recipe.   Fordham Brewing Company is doing the test batches for Miller (the realtor) but hasn’t made any long term commitments for the brewing process.  Rumor has it, it could be in stores by March, 2012 in Baltimore.

National Premium owner Tim Miller, Easton Resident, is also proud to announce his appearance on The History Channel’s hit show American Pickers. An episode titled “The Mad Catter” features the mother lode of “petroliana.” Mike and Frank scour Tim’s old distribution site where everything is for sale. Tim opened up his warehouse in the hopes of picking up some extra cash to revive National Premium. Details for the episode are below:
