Clipper City Items

From their email, tons o' goodies, hyarrrrrr

As noted below, Clipper City founder Hugh Sisson will sign 22oz bottles of their new Holiday tripel, Yule Tide, at Max's tonight at 6 PM. He will also do the honors Friday December 11th at Total Wine.

Heavy Seas Oyster Fest: Saturday February 6th 12-4 PM

All-you-can-eat featuring six kinds of oysters, oyster & seafood items from local restaurants, Heavy Seas beers and special casks, live music and behind the scenes access to the brewery. Tickets are $49, designated drivers $35


Saturday December 5th marks the 76th anniversary of the 21st Ammendment that led to the end of Prohibition. Lift a pint in honor to the end of those dark days.


Clipper City's Firkin guru Steve Marsh will be creating special dry hopped Loose Cannon, Winter Storm and Pale Ale casks with locally grown, hand picked cascade hops from Frederick, MD. They met the folks at The Hopyard at Stillpoint Farms at a beer festival in Western Maryland and the rest is history.

Clipper City feels their hops are as good as if not better than any of the Western US hops! Keep an eye on the calendar to see where the firkins pop up.

First firkin tapping: The Judges Bench in Ellicott City on Friday December 18th around 5 PM with the entire crew there to celebrate. Sounds great!
