It’s time for our 5th celebration of the DIY spirit! Brought to you by the BaltiBrew homebrew club, the Charitably Charmin’ ChiliBrew is an informal, semiannual charity homebrew competition and chili cookoff, now benefiting the Baltimore Free Farm, the Bearings Bike Project, and the Baltimore Green Currency Association. Previous installments have each drawn about 30 entries and 200+ enthusiastic judges, and this spring we will be returning to the Free Farm’s “Localize It!” outdoor festival.The latter:
Anyone can compete in the ChiliBrew, and anyone can judge! Just looking for a good time with good food/brews/all of the above? Come on out! Got a killer family chili recipe or brew your own beer? Bring it on! Involved with some other hobby or organization that Does It Together, here in Baltimore? Share the love! We want to bring people interested in all aspects of local lifestyles together to cross-pollinate and build community.
We’re suggesting a $10–$20 sliding-scale donation at the door from those who partake of the ChiliBrew. That’ll get you a ballot to vote on any or all of the competitions (chili con carne, veggie chili, and homebrew, though you must be 21 or older for homebrew of course). If you weigh in on the upper half of that sliding scale we’ll also give you a commemorative glass.
You are invited to the 1st Annual Charm City Beer Wars hosted at Mother's Federal Hill Grille. You get to choose who makes the best craft beer in Maryland. You as the consumer get to try multiple samples to help determine who has the best beer in Maryland. It's $30 all you can try. One vote per participant. If you missed out on the Charm City Wing Wars- you really missed out. Get yours to this now before it sells out.Of course, if you have a designated driver or other such chaperone, there's naught keeping you from both save laws against public intoxication.

The delegation had requested an amendment to the growler bill to allow the sale of tap wine, but the House Economic Matters Committee did not approve it. The amendment had been requested by Joe Barbera, owner of AIDA Bistro and Wine Bar in Columbia, which offers 30 wines on tap.
"I'm a little disappointed that that wasn't part of the (bill)," Barbera said. He said the amendment probably failed because wine on tap "is something fairly new and it's not available in a large number of locations, like there are places that have beer on tap."

You know, that sounds like a beer Flying Dog needs to ship to Ale Mary's as soon as possible........I know it's been a while since we've had a beer event at Hellas, but we've got some great ones in the works. The next one is coming up this week, on Friday the 13th starting at 5pm. We will be hosting a Pint Nite and Flying Dog will be stopping by, bringing with them a firkin of their "Disobedience" Abbey-Dubbel Ale (7.6%). As with all of our "Pint Nite's", your first purchase of one of these great beers gets you a Flying Dog pint glass that's yours to keep (one per customer, while supplies last). In addition to the firkin, we will have discounted prices on "Raging Bitch" on the night of the event and we're also planning on having a "Gonzo" barrel-aged Imperial Porter on tap.
That's not enough?! Well, we've got more..... Since we've got all these great beers and we're pretty good in the kitchen too, we figured we'd put the two together. We're going to have 3 special menu items on the night of the event.
First one is a "Disobedience, Maple-Glazed Pork Belly". It's a mouth-watering pork belly glazed with Disobedience beer and maple syrup atop a sweet potato and corned beef hash with a jalapeno-bacon waffle.
Second item are "Raging Rockfish Sliders". Created to pair with "Raging Bitch". Panko-breaded fillets of rockfish with sweet corn salsa and Raging Bitch aioli - served with sweet onion hush puppies.
Last item is a "Gonzo Burger". A bison burger on a sesame potato roll topped with peppered bacon, frizzled onions, pickled jalapeno, pepper-jack cheese and a barrel-aged Gonzo reduction - served with sweet potato fries.
Camden Yards is offering Flying Dog at over 20 locations in the ballpark this season, including at the new Roof Deck center field bar and at our own storefront (which will feature locally-inspired food and beer pairings).Those of you who are baseball geeks--is this the first time cask ales have been pledged to a major league baseball stadium on a regular basis?
Also, starting April 27, our "Firkin Friday" will feature a special cask-conditioned beer at each of the Orioles' Friday night home games.
And if that's not enough, a special shipment of our very first cans produced will be available at Sliders and Pickles Pub tomorrow [Friday the 6th] only. Starting at 5:30 am[!?!?!?!], cans of UnderDog Atlantic Lager are just $4 each. Cans won't hit the Baltimore area for at least another month, so we are stoked to share this exclusive preview.
Traditionally, you'll always get a far stronger, and more traditionally "cherry", flavor from sour cherries in fermentation than from sweet cherries. This is well-known to experienced wine and melomel (fruit mead) makers; it'll be fascinating to sample the two Cherry Blossoms side by side and compare. I expect a remarkable contrast.OLIVER'S HOT MONKEY LOVE 4 WAYS ON DRAFTThis Tuesday we will be featuring Oliver's Hot Monkey Love 4 different ways along with a bunch of their other great drafts:WE WILL BE FEATURINGON DRAFT:Hot Monkey LoveHot Monkey Love French OakHot Monkey Love American OakHot Monkey Love Bourbon Barrel3 SpiresStrongman3 Lions Bourbon BarrelWe will also have two different version of Oliver's Cherry Blossom one on cask and one on draft. One will have Sweet Cherries and the other will have Tart Cherries.
Dempsey's opening roster of beers, which will be brewed on premises, include Wild Pitch Wheat, Pine Tar Stout, Rick's Red Ale and -- how could they resist -- Rain Delay IPA, according to Camden Yard's food and beverage director Adrian Sedano. The bar at Dempsey's is scheduled to be open on April 6. The dining menu and house-brewed beers will may be ready for the second homestand, Sedano said.UPDATE: Dempsey is apparently not the only former Oriole to get into the microbrewery business.
