Our Top 10 Can't Miss Events for Baltimore Beer Week 2015

It’s time to drink some beer, Baltimore! Okay, let’s be serious. It’s always time to drink beer in Baltimore. But now is the time to celebrate beer, during Baltimore Beer Week, October 9–18. For those paying attention who haven’t had too much beer already, that is well more than what is considered one week. However, we’re not going to complain about a few extra days to enjoy suds in the city.
 
So how does one celebrate beer in Baltimore during Beer Week? Well, the obvious answer is by drinking all the beer. But there are also plenty of celebratory events to attend. There are a few tap takeovers and, of course, a crawl or two. Here’s our lineup of some of our favorite beer events around town between October 9 and 18.
 
October 9
Chilibrew IX, 7–10 PM
Zion Lutheran Church (400 E Lexington St.)

Stoneleigh Lanes (6703 York Rd.)
Pinehurst Wine Shoppe and Union Brewing Company get together to start Baltimore Beer Week right with duckpin bowling (SO Baltimore) and bottomless beer, along with music from DJ BohFunk. On tap will be Duckpin, Double Duckpin, and a cask-variant Duckpin.

The tour includes handouts and is a pay as you go event. RSVP at dominiccantalupo@gmail.com.
