Baltimore Beer Festival is coming in October
The first (and hopefully annual) Baltimore Beer Festival is set for noon-5 p.m. Oct. 17 at Canton Waterfront Park.
The festival, which caps the second Baltimore Beer Week, will showcase local, regional and national beers from brewers such as Saranac, Heavy Seas, Victory and Harpoon. Alongside the big boys will be the home brewers, according to festival organizer Torbin Green, who runs the events promotions company Smalltimore.
"You're going to be able to pair up with the corporate brewers but also sample home brews," Green said. "It's an interesting twist." ...
General admission tickets, which are $35 in advance and $40 at the gate, include unlimited four-ounce tastings. You can also spring for VIP tickets, which cost $55 and give you access to your own tent and food vouchers.Donegal-Xpress and a couple other bands will perform live, and a big screen TV will be showing the Ravens game. The festival's site, baltimorebeerfestival.com, is under construction but should be up in the coming weeks, Green said.
