Baltimore Briar Pipe Club founder Aaron Salter first started smoking cigars in 2015 and became interested in pipes and pipe tobacco as he spent more time smoking. He finally decided to try pipe smoking and ordered a Missouri Meerschaum Corn Cob pipe and picked up pipe tobacco from a local shop. Aaron began as most new pipe smokers do, with an aromatic. He wasn't impressed by this blend but decided to try something other than an aromatic. Once he started smoking McClelland Virginia's, he never turned back. In the summer of 2017, Aaron wanted to join a local pipe club to learn more and become a more proficient pipe smoker. Unfortunately, many of the pipe clubs were either too far or unresponsive to his request. The idea of starting a pipe club never occurred to him until he reached out to The Humidour and they mentioned they would be open to the idea. Aaron worked with his wife, Sarah, to create a name and logo for the pipe club, along with topics and preferred pipe tobacco for the shop. The Baltimore Briar Pipe Club was officially launched in July 2017 and was a hit from the very beginning. Aaron and Mike Thomas (along with many other members) work hard to meet the members' needs and spark conversation at each meeting.
