Chesapeake Real Ale Fest 2009 and SPBW Crab Feast

Saturday, October 17, 2009, 1-6pm

Part of Baltimore Beer Week.

The VENUE: Pratt Street Alehouse (formerly Wharf Rat Camden Yards), 206 W. Pratt St, Baltimore.

PS - Unlike last year, the Festival will have the entire run of the Pratt Street Alehouse. The front, the side courtyard, the bar area, and second floor will all be open for our event. They are anticipating 550-600 people this year and tickets are capped so when they are gone, they WILL NOT fit anyone else in per fire code.

THE PRICE: $35 which will include a souvenir SPBW/PSA mug to go along with unlimited samples of over 35 cask conditioned beers, some rare, some not so rare, all delicious though! Plus tons of giveaways and food available a la carte.

THE BEERS: SPBW expect to have 35+ firkins from 30ish brewers, plus one cider at least. See the web page for a full list. Right now we have Appalachian, Barley & Hops, Brewers Alley, Brewers Art, Clipper City, District Chophouse, Dog Pub, Dogfish Head, DuClaw, Evolution, Flying Dog, Franklin's, Lancaster, Magic Hat, Pratt St Alehouse, Red Brick Station, Rock Bottom Bethesda & Troeg's CONFIRMED. Firlins are reported as being in transit from Stone, Langunitas, The Bruery, Boulder Brewery and Weyerbacher! Growler fills will be available for an additional fee, but ONLY at the end at 6 PM of whatever is left--buy growlers from PSAH or bring your own.

Tickets for the Sixth Annual Chesapeake Real Ale Festival are available online at www.spbw.org/realale/index.php. Payment is through Pay-Pal, but you can use a credit card; you do NOT need a Pay-Pal account.


In addition, the Md. Homebrewers/SPBW Crab Feast at Goddard in Greenbelt is this Saturday (along with everything else--Waynestock, Max's German Fest, and Clipper City's Bacon Fest); five firkins are promised. See HERE for late updates.

I'm going to Clipper City. With all the good beers at different events, it's the Bacon that tipped the scales.

The Real Ale Fest. will of course feature firkins from various local and regional breweries but this year will be bigger and better. We've shipped casks off to the likes of Stone, Langunitas, The Bruery, Boulder Brewery and Weyerbacher to be filled. Diversity is the name of the game!
