Obviously it's American Craft Beer Week. There's the SAVOR stuff going on in D.C. and a spattering of festivals elsewhere this weekend already address.

All sorts of items to relay from The Perfect Pour.

Warsteiner tasting: Thursday (today!) from 430 to 7 p.m.
Woodchuck Cider tasting: Friday May 16 from 4 to 7 p.m.

They will also participate in a wine dinner at my favorite, Victoria Gastro Pub next Saturday May 24. Wine from the Spann Vineyards in California.

TPP's "Grand Opening Extravaganza" will be June 6th from 5-8 p.m. "Bring a friend - free beer & wine tasting stations - special discounts and more"

New arrivals:
Sierra Nevada Southern Hemisphere Harvest 24 oz
Geary's Summer Ale
Spanish Peaks Crystal Weiss

Also, if you get their email newsletter, there's a coupon for Duvel 750ml at $9.99 each when you buy 3 or more (regularly $11.99 each) and a Duvel gift set for $16.99 (regularly $18.99).

Flying Dog is celebrating the 72nd birthday of company friend and artist for all those crazy labels, Ralph Steadman.

They will also be part of a beer dinner at "Duffy's on Potomac" in Hagerstown on May 27. The menu looks good (smoked duck martini, exploding crabcake, thai beef skewers and tempura friend bananas), as do the beer pairings.

And at Victoria they're calling this upcoming Monday (May 19) "Victoria Day". They will be extending the free passed hors d' oeuvres hours in the pub from 5-7 p.m. (I can't vouch for most of them other than the mini chicken pizza which was good).

Monday is also Beer Club night (of which I'm a charter member), and they'll be offering a 20% reduction on all 65 of their bottled beers. They will also give you a free Victoria pilsner glass with any such purchase.
