It's Beer Week in Baltimore, Maryland

By
Real Estate Agent with Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc.

Traffic will be heavy in Baltimore MD today, with a 1 p.m. Ravens game against the Broncos and the kickoff of BEER WEEK in Baltimore.  Crofton residents will want to get an early start, because the usual 30-minute drive is likely to become a bottleneck as you get closer to the city.  In fact, I recommend you consider taking the light rail from BWI.

This entire week will be a college kid's version of heaven... over 300 events going on throughout the city to celebrate the 2nd annual Baltimore Beer Week, through October 17, including Beer Breakfasts, Beer Lunches, Beer Tasting, Beer Contests, and more.  Let me offer you a small sampling of what to expect today in Baltimore:

Baltimore Beer Week 2010A Kegerator Raffle at T Bonz Grille and Pub

Battle of the 1/6 BBLS at Frisco Grille & Cantina

Free Tasting from the Troeggs Independent Brewery at Dawson' s Liquors

Heavy Seas Beer Brunch at Alonso' s

Hoptoberfest at Muggsy' s Mug House

Light Lager Special at the Cat's Eye Pub

Maryland Beer on Tap at T Bonz Grille and Pub

Maryland Founders Cask Event at Max' s Taphouse

Oak Barrel Stout Bonanza at Alexander' s Tavern

Octoberfest Celebration at Pickle' s Pub

Ravens Purple Patio Celebration at Mothers Federal Hill Grill

Stillwater Ales Day at Max' s Taphouse

3 Bottles of Beer on the Wall at The Whistling Oyster

There are many many more events throughout Baltimore to bring back the college kid in you - even a class on October 14 at Howard Community College on Beer History and Appreciatiion. Students will taste at least five beers and plenty of gourmet cheeses as they learn more about their favorite beverage.  Advance registration is $55.

You can read the Baltimore Sun article, Baltimore Beer Week Returns or visit the official website for Baltimore Beer Week to learn more details.

 

Crofton Md residents enjoy the opportunity to experience three wonderful cities, each with their own personality - And they can do so all in one day.  This morning, for example, you could attend Sunday Mass at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in D.C., then head east to Annapolis for the annual U.S. Sailboat Show, and end the day at a Baltiomre Pub or Brewery.  What a great life!

We get down your way pretty often for the Oriole's games at Camden Yards and down to Inner Harbor.  I have only had the opportunity to get to one of the Ravens games.  If anyone ever has the opportunity, please don't second guess yourself, you will definitely not run out of things to do.

Fred, I can't get excited about the Ravens either... We're Redskins fans!  Definately tempted to check out beer week NEXT weekend, when there's no Ravens home game.

Anita - I think it will be a blast!

Don - That's so true!  You should come on down next weekend.  This is such a beautiful time of year for the drive from PA.

Jeff Belonger must be sleeping in this morning... I thought sure he'd jump on this!

Good Morning Margaret, This sounds like something we could all have fun at. I remember one of  my first experiences with a beer party when I went to college. I overdid it, would be a nice way to say it. And it was weird how a flight of 30 steps on the campus grounds looks like a such a short jump. It wasn't and the numerous fractures was a testament of the effort.

Now this is something my husband would love!!  He received a beer making kit when he retired from the city of Vallejo after 32 years of service.  He is having a blast making beer.  It sits our shower downstairs during the process.  When we have guests they have to use another bathroom!!  Thanks goodness we have 3 to choose from!

Kathy, I'm thinking it must have been pretty crazy in downtown Baltimore yesterday.  A home game for the Ravens creates huge crowds, but add Baltimore Beer Week to the mix...
