The Maryland Craft Beer Festival is tomorrow at the Frederick Fairgrounds. Weather forecast looks beautiful. Some of those VIP beers look fascinating; Green peppercorn trippel or wild sour cherry porter? Here is a guide to the festival from the Gazette. You can still buy the discounted tickets at their site as of this morning. I wonder if I qualify for a press pass?
Channel 9 video on Adam Frey’s new Frederick county farm brewery. I’d card the reporter though.
Brewer’s Alley released a special wedding beer, Wedding Alt, with customizable labels. How about a divorce one? Should it be something dark and heavy or light and celebratory?
The Grateful Gourmet tries a Frederick County wine and finds he likes it.
In anticipation of the impending changes (on July 1st I believe?) to the alcohol laws two new “farm breweries” in Frederick County are slated to open soon: Frey’s Brewing Company and Milkhouse Brewery. Exciting times. Ever so often the legislature actually does something good. I look forward to their opening and as soon as possible I shall visit them and report back here. Maybe I can get a sneak preview on one: Milkhouse Brewery is on Stillpoint Farm which is where FirkinFest, the grand finale to Frederick Beer Week , is being held.
There are all sorts of boozy events coming up:
Toast to Frederick wine festival- April 21st and 22nd at the Frederick fairgrounds
The Maryland Craft Beer Festival at the Frederick fairgrounds. May 12th from noon to six.
Frederick Beer Week– May 12-19th. Events all over the Frederick area.
Wine in The Woods– May 19 and 20th at Merriweather Post Pavillion.
Did you know that Frederick had beer trail? I didn’t. Here is the article from the Downtown Frederick Partnership. With the exception of Roast House Pub I’ve hiked the whole trail, however I’m not sure I agree with all the listings. Certainly Flying Dog, Barley & Hops and Brewer’s Alley deserve to be on there. What about the others? Does simply serving good beer warrant inclusion? Let me know.
