51 events committed so far, and that's not all of them either--there are a couple more big ones in the pipeline, so to speak. Now, granted, 20 of these events are at Max's Taphouse, and some of them overlap significantly, such as events during the BAM Oktoberfest and the Chesapeake Real Ale Fest--but there should be enough now to start planning your liver allocations, hotel rooms, and the like.
UPDATE Aug. 25: I spoke with one beer distributor for the region who told me of the massive "battle map" spreadsheet on his office wall, cross-indexing dates and breweries which he represents. "When we nail down the final plans, we will have probably dozens of events to add to the calendar," he said. "We have breweries that want to do an event every day or night of Baltimore Beer Week." He hopes to have the schedule ready by the end of this week or early next week. So, if you're waiting to hear where Dogfish Head will be.... or Saranac, or Sierra Nevada, or Magic Hat......... patience is a virtue.
