It’s Wednesday night, which means Frisco Pint Night. Today features Firestone Walker, the amazing California brewery. I wore my Frisco T-shirt (aka Mr. Scratchy) in anticipation of Mark’s 50th beer. If you drink 50 unique beers at Frisco, you receive one of their T-shirts. Well, there was a bit of a surprise. Continue reading Frisco, Firestone Walker and a new T-shirt
A few of us are back to Frisco Tap House this Wednesday for the Monument City Brewing Pint NIght. There’s big news at Frisco – their new production brewery will start brewing next week.

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.
