I mentioned it before, and it's time for me to mention it again.
Santé, a culinary ("epicurean") fundraiser event being held to raise funds for the National Kidney Foundation of Md. (oh, yeah, like you don't need your kidneys to drink beer!), is being held at the American Visionary Art Museum (that funky-looking building along Key Highway next to Federal Hill, with the mirror glitter mosaics on the outer walls and those funky sculptures) on the afternoon of June 13th, 3-6 PM. (Early admission tickets, 2-6 pm, are available at additional cost.)
Tickets are $75 in advance, $85 at the door.
Peruse the event website for an impressive list of breweries, beers, foods, wines, and more available. (This has to be the first time I've seen Scotland's epic Traquair House Ale at a non-Scottish-themed beer event!) There will also be a gin tasting hosted by Grand Cru's Nelson Carey, a rum tasting hosted by Joe Squared's Joe Edwardsen, and a tequila tasting with Blue Agave's Elizabeth Atwood; the spirits tasting will be during the "premium" hour between 2 and 3 p.m.
