First Friday Firkin at Phoenix Emporium in Ellicott City

Yet another old-guard place we don't mention often enough here, at 8049 Main Street, across the street from both the Ellicott City B&O Station Museum and the tiny but excellent Carpe Vinum liquor/beer store:

First Friday Firkin
Join us at the Phoenix this Friday as we tap our most exclusive firkin to date, Heavy Seas Plank 1. Unveiled in March at the Extreme Beer Fest in Boston, Plank 1 is an 8% ABV Olde Style English Ale aged on roasted poplar. Heavy Seas Beer (Clipper City Brewing Company - Baltimore, MD) is the first brewery to use this new species of wood for aging beer and has created an entirely new genre for wood-aged beer. This special brew is available in extremely limited quantities and the Phoenix was chosen to showcase one of the few available firkins.
