Fells Point bars stock up on Ukrainian liquor while Baltimore-area stores, restaurants, dump Russian vodka

March 3, 2022

The delivery truck had a blue and yellow Ukrainian flag on its side. As it sat parked in Fells Point Wednesday afternoon, its owner unloaded brandies, beers, wines and honey pepper vodka, all from various parts of Ukraine. “We want to sell as much as we can and if we run out, they’ll bring more tomorrow,” said Ron Furman, owner of Max’s Taphouse in Fells Point. Furman organized the sale of Ukrainian spirits to fellow restaurant and bar owners this week as a way of showing support to the country that is enduring a withering attack from neighboring Russia.
