Saturday Beer Get-Together?

Something brewing in my mind:

Is anyone interesting in some no-frills, come as you are get-together this weekend? I was hoping to sneak in a visit to a couple places Saturday and if there's company, all the better:

1)Flying Dog Brewery tasting room/tour in Frederick. They're open from 130-4 PM on Saturday, tours are free and optional, glassware is $5 and comes with several generous tasters (Flying Dog and Wild Goose beers) and its a lively, fun setting, you can get growler fills and merchandise. The earlier the better, folks have already caught onto this great setting.

2)Barley and Hops grill/microbrewery. Also in Frederick, I haven't been here yet and I'd like to at least sample their offerings.

3)Bonefish Grill. Doesn't open until 3 PM, on the north side of Frederick. I loved this place when I lived down South, fresh fish dishes, the "bang bang shrimp" appetizer is a personal favorite (the coconut crusted shrimp are great too), and I recall that on Flying Dog's twitter account from a few months back they had a tap on at Bonefish so there's assurance of at least one good beer in this place. I'm not a wine guy but its a respectable joint (without having to dress that way) and if wine is your thing I'm guessing they've got more than a few quality offerings here to end the evening as well.

So yeah, some combination of those venues. Comment below or email me or hit up @MDbeerspotter on twitter, I'll try to arrange something if there's enough interest. Lets do this!

I like the idea. I too am out of town this weekend; I would be up for getting together for something like this. Maybe a park and walk through Ellicott City (The Phoenix, Ellicott Mills and The Judges Bench).

That might be another good option at some point.
