Flying Dog/Baltimore Beer Week Promo Happy Hours, and other events

Flying Dog is taking their turn helping to promote Baltimore Beer Week with two "preview" happy hour events this week, today (Tuesday the 30th) at Alonso's on Cold Spring Lane in Roland Park and Thursday the 2nd at Alexander's Tavern in Fells Point.  If you're really lucky, they just might have their new Fresh-Hop Ale ready by these events, though I'm not that optimistic yet.....

Also, general reminders: Add to your to-do list the Max's German Fest Sept. 10-12th; a partial list of beers expected:

 Max's beer manager Casey Hard is also expecting to have no fewer than ten gravity-feed kegs of German beers on hand.  Fellow blogger Tom Cizauskas elaborates on the difference between a German gravity keg and a British cask-ale firkin here.

ALSO that weekend, all on September 11th: Mahaffey's "Waynestock" street festival/block party starts at noon in Canton; the DuClaw Real Ale Fest in Bel Air 12-4 PM (NOTE: they use a separate website for this fest and don't seem to acknowledge its existence on the main DuClaw website), tickets still available...

Note that Heavy Seas' Bacon & Beer Fest at the Clipper City brewery in Halethorpe on Sept. 11th is SOLD OUT.  As the Baltimore Sun's Sam Sessa might say, "Behold the power of bacon and beer!"
