Beer Notes

--- Be sure to follow Baltimore Beer Guy on Twitter @MDbeerspotter and as a friendly shout out, also check out Woodberry Kitchen's Twitter.

--- Beer consumption by country, a representation

--- Dogfish Punkin and Southern Tier Cherry Saison are on tap at Gilly's

--- DCBeer has undergone a redesign and just launched a pretty cool newsletter worth signing up for if you like venturing into DC for their excellent beer offerings. Check out their review of the nifty and novel canned beer only offerings (good ones!) at the Red Derby.

For a sneak peak, here's their tap findings this week around DC featured in the email:

- Birreria Paradiso in Georgetown is going strong on Victory Brewing Company beers -- they've got Victory Festbier, Victory Kolsch, Victory Scarlet Fire Rauchbier, Victory St. Victorious and Victory Prima Pils
- Pizzeria Paradiso Dupont has a new 21 Amendment beer Back in Black!
has Speak Easy Midnight Run India Black Ale and Brooklyn Sorachi Ace Farmhouse Ale.
- Black Squirrel has Weyebacher Imperial Pumpkin on tap

--- Ruddy Duck Brewery in Southern Maryland (Solomon's Island) has a new tap: 'Helles' German style lager. They also have Belgian Dubbel, Imperial Stout, Belgium Trippel, Pale Ale and IPA on tap. Coming soon: Oyster Oatmeal Stout (!), Hefe, Martzen LAger and Pilsner. I've added their taplist (hopefully they'll keep that up to date) on the menu at right under 'Online Beer Lists' that highlights establishments that are smart enough to electronically keep their customers informed of whats on tap.

--- Speaking of Eastern Shore, this Wednesday Delaware's Evolution Brewing is the featured brewery at Frisco Grille's Pint Night (starting at 7 PM). Their Lucky 7 Porter has been popping up on tap all over town but I look forward to trying their Primal Pale Ale.

Solomon's Island is in Calvert County in Southern Md, not on the Eastern Shore.

Evolution is on the Eastern Shore though and has some damn good beers :)

Yeh my geography once past Baltimore is terrible, it all seems like Eastern Shore to me heh.

Alright I'll try to drill that distinction (Southern MD, which I think of as the federal worker's paradise north of DC, vs. the actual peninsula).

Yep, EVO is good stuff.
