Charles St. for a "Hoppy Hour" reception and tasting.  Cost is $45 per person, inclusive of tax and gratuity, and reservations can be made by calling 410-547-8255. A portion of the event proceeds benefits the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

 If you wish, you could cut out from there to the Pratt Street Ale House, where they will be holding a "Brewers' Reunion" of all three past and present brewers.  $35 a head includes buffet, tickets still available as of this afternoon; call 410-244-8900.

If you want to be a Dogfish Head/Calagione groupie fanboy follower, Calagione is scheduled to hop north to Alewife for a pay-as-you-go drink event there from 7 PM on, with 16 DFH drafts on at the bar. 

Light Rail, MTA bus, and Metro are convenient to both events.  Please don't over-imbibe and drive.
