1) Haven't confirmed in person, but the beer engines at the Pratt St. Ale House should be up and pumping by now. Also, note an ad for the place in this week's City Paper.
UPDATE: Just received an e-mail from Pratt St. minutes ago: They're on, with the 3 Lions, Strong Man strong pale ale, and ESB as the initial offerings.
2) Moorea Marketing's Beer, Bourbon, & BBQ Fest this Saturday at the Timonium Fairgrounds. Tickets still available, but not for the early VIP sampling from noon to 2 PM.
U.S. hops looking good for 2017.
