--- Bomber tonight (WED) at Mahaffey's (Canton) is Southern Tier Pumking ($12). Be sure to check the website Thursday for all their Baltimore Beer Week events, 'lotsa cask conditioned stuff and give-aways'. There's still room for the Flying Dog bus trip. They still have a few more Oktoberfest beers to go through, but winter ales are just around the corner. They'll open at noon on Sunday, including the kitchen.
--- As usual, Thursday is 'Thirsty Thursday' at Gilly's (Rockville), no corking fee on bottled beer (normally $2). Right now they have Dogfish Punkin, Clipper City The Great Pumpkin and Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale available.
Be sure to also check out 'Gilly-Tober-Fest' on Saturday October 10th from 4-7 PM. There will be a band, food from next door (Urban BBQ Oktober style brats & kraut), some wines and beers from Flying Dog, Starr Hill, Dominion, Weyerbacher, The Bruery and Clipper City.
--- DC's Birch & Barley/Churchkey, fabled beer extravaganza, may finally be coming into place. Lots of interesting info at YFGF to peruse ('555 unique labels, 50 draught beers, 5 cask lines, many exclusive vintage and obscure offerings, three distinct temperature zones).
--- EXCELLENT Baltimore Beer Week rundown (333 events!) from organizer Alexander Mitchell at Beer In Baltimore. Its overwhelming, I need to sit down soon and plot out where I'll be headed.
