The Weekend's Beer Lineups

THREE beer fests going on this weekend: DuClaw Real Ale in Bel Air, Heavy Seas Bacon & Beer (sold out), and Max's Taphouse German Beer Fest in Fells Point.  (Oh, and "Waynestock" at Mahaffey's in Canton, but that's more about the block party than just the beer--photo above from last year's.)

Dave Benfield of DuClaw just slipped me the cask line-up for the Duclaw shindig:

Stoudts, Red Brick and Troegs have not yet informed us of what they are bringing.

Flying Fish - Exit 16 Wild Rice 2x IPA, and Belgian Abbey Dubbel

Flying Dog - Raging Bitch, and Gonzo Imperial Porter

Stillwater - Stateside Saison, and Cellar Door

Heavy Seas- Loose Cannon, and Pale Ale

Stone - Arrogant Bastard, and Ruination IPA

Barley & Hops - Double Deuce DIPA, and Hoptopsy ESB

Pratt Street - Harvest Ale (amber ale) w/honey and Maryland-grown fresh hops (Cascade & Chinook), & dry-hopped with MD grown Cascade & Chinook; and Iron Man Pale Ale dry-hopped with Kent Goldings

Dog Brewing - Bourbon Coffee Stout (brewed with coffee and aged on bourbon barrels); and Peach Tart - Peach beer with a "tang", brewed with real peach juice

Brewer's Alley - New Moon Ale, and Oatmeal Stout w/ Vanilla

Franklins - Milk Stout, and Hop Zen

Brewer's Art - Monument Belgian Pale Ale, and Coup de Boule

and of course our six:
Double Dry Hopped 2010 Serum
Peppermint & Chocolate Infused Bad Moon Porter
Chocolate Raspberry Imperial Rye Porter (X-1 with a kick of raspberry!)
Double Spiced 31 (2x the cinnamon and nutmeg)
Dark Cherry & Vanilla Infused Black Jack Stout
Diablo Noir (a blend of Devils Milk 2009 and Black Jack 2008.

Benfield reports that about 60 tickets are left, and online sales stop Thursday evening; any remaining tickets will be available at the door on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Heavy Seas/ Clipper City shindig is sold out, so y'all that are going there will get what you get.  And it's likely to be very good, if last year was any indication.  Book your cardiologist appointment now.  And look out for that character above.  

Still awaiting a final German beer menu run-down from Max's..............
