Quick News Update

As the Beer In Baltimore World HQs enters Day Seven of it Collossal-Verizon-[Bleep]-Up-Of-Asinine-Magnitude-imposed Internet and Phone Blackout, supplemented by the Great Dell AC Laptop Adapter Burn-Out, we have a few quick updates, as long as the computers at the Pikesville Library co-operates (and I have to go out of Baltimore City to find a library computer with an up-to-date-enough browser to handle the blog!):

*Max's Taphouse tonight: Tuesday Beer Social featuring new beers from Oliver Brewing/Pratt Street Ale House.
*The latest Mid-Atlantic Brewing News is out.
*Hellas in Millersville/Anne Arundel is holding a New Belgian Beer Dinner tomorrow night, the 8th:

*Did y'all catch the recent articles in the Washington Post and Baltimore Sun on legislation to allow greater growler sales?
*Could this be the last year for SAVOR, the high-price craft-beer Bacchanal, in Washington D.C. (June 8-9 this year)?
*According to a rogue Facebook post, a certain new beer venue somewhere between Inner Harbor and Fells Point has sneaked open in a "soft" opening, a week prior to their official opening........
