Reminder: Scottish Extreme Beer Brewer at Max's Taphouse Tonight

James Watt, half of the creative/management team of the admittedly eccentric, "hip," and off-beat Scottish brewery BrewDog, will be at Max's Taphouse tonight, along with several of his beers on tap, cask, and in bottles.

To answer the obvious question:  Watt has said that he will have at least limited samples of both his record-setting high-alcohol beers, Tactical Nuclear Penguin and Sink the Bismarck!, at 32% and 41% respectively.  I believe the bidding starts on eBay momentarily............

No, wait, seriously.  He SHOULD do a silent auction of small samples, to benefit an appropriate charity.  Earthquake relief in Haiti and Chile.

In other news, the Brickskeller in D.C. has scheduled two beer "dinners" (which are usually more tasting events with snacks) with Bruce Williams of Fraoch Heather Ale fame on April 6 and 7, just in case you can't make it to Max's Taphouse to see him there on March 30th or prefer a more formal event and presentation.  Tickets are $35 and are available at www.lovethebeer.com.

Elsewhere tonight, as reported by Baltimore Beer Guy:

Frisco Grille's latest pint night event is happening today (Wednesday) starting at 7 PM.
Delaware's excellent Evolution Brewing will be on hand with a cask conditioned Rise Up Stout as well as the brand spanking new Lot #6 Double IPA, the excellent Lot #3 IPA, the Exile ESB and something called Sprung.
