Firkin About Town

From DuClaw, re: this Friday  the 25th:

We will be hosting a Firkin Friday at the Arundel Mills, Bel Air and Bowie DuClaw Brewing Company locations on June 25th at 5pm. Firkins scheduled to be tapped by location:
Arundel Mills
1. Double Dry Hopped Serum with Amarillo Hops
*Bonus Firkin* Apricot Infused Venom (tapped after the 1st one is finished)
1. Double Dry Hopped Serum with Amarillo Hops
Bel Air
1. Double Dry Hopped Serum with Amarillo Hops

*The latest bar/restaurant to join the cask ale revolution: the Bluegrass Tavern, on S. Hanover St. in Federal Hill which has been featuring specialty bourbons and now is doing casks as well as several craft taps (different taps at the upstairs and downstairs bar; the downstairs "kegerator" is kind of tucked into a corner almost as an afterthought):

Please join us the Third Tuesday of every month as we tap an unconditioned (sic) cask ale, or as some would say, firkin, and let the fun begin.  We will tap the cask at 7 PM and Chef Pat will have a handful of specially designed dishes to complement each unique beer.
Tuesday, June 22nd, 7 PM: Clipper City Heavy Seas Mutiny Fleet, Bourbon Aged Barleywine Style Ale
Tuesday, July 20th, 7 PM: Clipper City, Meet the Brewer Pint Night
They probably have some of that leftover firkin for tonight, and if you haven't had that bourbon-barrel-aged Below Decks, what are you waiting for?  It's good!

And, of course, the usual Thursday night casks at Max's and Metropolitan..........
