Enjoy unlimited samples of cask-conditioned ales from 15 renowned craft breweries, an amazing free food buffet and live music from the band Acoustically Sound! All this can be yours for the low low price of $45 per person, with a portion of the proceeds to benefit FARM.It's at the Bel Air location, site of the original brewpub before they moved to a larger central brewery. In addition, they're running buses from their Bowie and Arundel Mall locations for $15 a person.
Participating: Barley & Hops, Brewers Alley, Brewers Art, Flying Dog, DuClaw (usually around ten or so firkins), Flying Fish, Heavy Seas, Franklin's, Pub Dog, Olivers, Red Brick Station, Stone, Stoudt's, Stillwater, and Troeg's.
So lets see if it sells out in minutes or hours or days. Then we'll debate whether this is an accurate reflection of the national economy or not. (The food spread, by the way, has been lavish and extravagant in past years. Don't argue with the price. Excellent value--almost too much so, as I wish I had a subway or Light Rail to get me to and from the place.)
