Columbia's The Perfect Pour is offering two tastings this weekend. Today (Friday) from 430-730 it's Merchant Du Vin Importers (tasting Sam Smith, Lindeman's and Ayinger). On Saturday from 4 to 7 it's Maryland's own Hook & Ladder Brewing. Discounts will be available during the tastings.
Also: a new arrival on their shelves is Williamsburg AleWerks (VA).
Customer Appreciation Day at Your Wine & Spirit Shoppe (Woodstock, MD) is April 26 as they're offering wholesale prices. There's also 12-pack special beer prices this week on Spaten Premium, Leinenkugel's Explorer, Foster's Lager and Stella Artrois.
There's a new tour policy at Clipper City. You must now make online reservations as they will be limiting the number of people at each session.
The next tour dates are April 12th and 26th (free) at 1 and 2:30 PM. They will feature their "Loose Cannon" and 2008 "Red Sky at Night" on tap, and both of the new Oxford Organic Ales. For $5 you get a take-home tasting glass that allows you to sample their beers.
Clipper City will have a sampling and tasting night at Hard Times Cafe April 7 in Frederick.
DuClaw will debut its new Schwarzbier "Blackout" on April 9th and 10th at its four area locations. Be sure to get on their email list for much more information about the events, freebies, etc. It seems sort of insider-ish.
