The Columbia Pint Night Gang spent the evening at Frisco Tap House which featured one of the craft beer world’s classiest breweries, New Belgium.

As summer winds down, the beer world gears up for Labor Day, just a warm up for autumn beers. This Labor Day weekend, Hysteria Brewing is planning their reopening. According to their Facebook page, they will be open from 11:00 am – 11:00 pm on Saturday. I see a Trash Panda in my future.
Also, I’ve recently heard from the folks at Crooked Crab Brewing. They hope to open in Anne Arundel County sometime in December.
Once again, I’ve found a few articles that I found interesting. So, take a well-deserved break this weekend and catch up on the beer world.

Frisco Tap House, Columbia, MD
It’s only logical. Once you drink 99 unique craft beers, most at a world-class level, your 100th should be a Natty Boh chugged from a bottle. It was Lagunitas pint night at Frisco Tap House and Laura was reaching mug club status. Continue reading Lagunitas, Mug Club and Mr Trash Wheel
Inspired by HowChow’s post about breweries in Howard County, I’m writing today about the HoCo breweries. There are 7 breweries in Howard County that make beer in the county: Ellicott Mills, Bare Bones, Manor Hill, Push (Frisco Tap House’s brewery), Black Flag, Hysteria, and Jailbreak.

I’m in the Lake Region of Maine about an hour out of Portland, so I missed Hysteria’s grand opening. However, Dbear was lucky enough to attend the festivities. He has kindly shared a few of his pictures and impressions. Sorry this is so late; apparently Maine has limited internet service. Continue reading Hysteria Grand Opening
So, for Wednesday night, a few from the pint night crew watched a free movie at Merriweather Post Pavilion; the movie was The Last Waltz. Continue reading Manor Hill at Merriweather
