The Chesapeake Bay Branch of the Society for Preservation of Beers from the Wood is starting off their new year with a gathering at Max's Taphouse at 7 PM on the 8th, with four firkins:
Thornbridge Jaipur-English IPA
Thornbridge Ashford- English New World Brown Ale
Williams Bros Midnight Sun-Scottish Dark Porter
Williams Bros Black- Scottish Dark Ale
Membership is a measly $10/year; typically the discounts for members at 2-3 meetings return the investment. If you are not a member, you can also swing by to partake of the firkins, but the membership usually gets first crack and produces a lengthy wait. To join, print out and fill out a membership form and bring $10.
