I anticipate that most of these beers will be on tap for a couple days more, at least.

On Sunday the 17th, we have the return of the popular Charitably Charming Chilibrew for 2011.  This informal homebrew competition and chili cook-off, which is held to benefit the Baltimore Free School and the Velocipede Bike Project (to promote localized lifestyles and DIY communities), has become a stellar event, with the group participating in last year's Baltimore Beer Week as well.  This spring, the event will be held at the Baltimore Free Farm, 3510 Ash Street, in the Hampden neighborhood.  Admission is by donation of $10-20 (sliding scale).  Entries of chili and homebrew are still being sought; info is available at the website.  (Hint: The winners are often simply the folks that bring the most to sample!)
