Next Week: Frederick Beer Week, Pratt Street Real Ale Fest

The upcoming Frederick Beer Week got some major coverage in the Frederick News-Post today--and I saw it there while at work; it's most of the front page of the News-Post's Lifestyle section.  Go to the article to review the schedule of events, and also to learn how it was inspired directly by Baltimore Beer Week.

Meanwhile, if you're a real ale aficionado, you've probably already read the cask list below in a more mangled form, as it was being disseminated all over the place while I was doing stuff out there in Frederick.  But just in case, here's the list, courtesy of PSAH's Steve Jones:
