Baltimore Beer Week: Read All About It!

With less than 24 hours to go before the first pubs open for Baltimore Beer Week, the print media brings you lots of reading material.  Check out the free weekly "B" paper from the Sun, in those orange boxes hither and yon.  Not only is BBW prominently featured on the cover and inside, but their website features this essay on how BBW started, from some hack in town.

Meanwhile, the City Paper (the ones in the yellow boxes) gives its readers a double-whammy:  a 12-page insert featuring all the BBW events that were scheduled by press time (not including the Wiessner/American Brewery Tour, approved too late for the deadlines), and a excellent cover story on Hugh Sisson and Clipper City/Heavy Seas and how it pioneered the central Maryland craft beer rennaissance, which online readers can read here.

In addition, glossy printed Official Baltimore Beer Week Guides have been distributed to most participating venues by now, and the latest issue of Mid-Atlantic Brewing News, with a theme on Beer Weeks in general and several articles/photos by yours truly, should have arrived or be arriving any minute now at its usual outlets--good beer bars, breweries/brewpubs, and better craft beer retailers.
